The Woman in Cabin 10 is a balance between a murder mystery and psychological thriller. The story follows travel journalist, Lo Blacklock, as she is sent on a cruise simply to write a review, however ends up becoming a witness to a terrible crime.
I am not usually one to enjoy a psychological thriller, however Ruth Ware was able to avoid all of the classic cliches, taking you on a journey throughout. The book manages your heart pumping and your mind searching for answers, and the lack of predicability is of course in its favour.
My only criticism is the end. Of course, I won't spoil it...but I really disliked how the mystery was solved, which is why the book earned less stars.
Still somewhat worth the hype, I recommend The Woman in Cabin 10 for a day where you don't feel like doing much, don't want to read anything too intense, yet still want to be engaged in a really good book. Grab a cup of coffee and a blanket, and settle in for a thrilling ride.
