The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
I love Ruth Ware! There is just something about her gothic writing style that resonates with me and I enjoy everything she writes. I have to admit that my favorite is The Death of Mrs. Westaway and her newest unfortunately did not knock my socks off but I still enjoyed it.
One quick side note…. All of Ruth Ware’s audiobooks are narrated by Imogen Church and she is fabulous. Her voice and style go hand in hand perfectly with the spirit of Ruth Ware’s work. I hope she continues to narrate her stories in the future.
This story was a tad different from everything else I’ve read by Ruth Ware and frankly I’ve grown a tad tired of thrillers with a nanny as a central character. They seem a bit overdone right now. I did enjoy the ghost story quality to the story but wasn’t overly excited about the ending. It was a good book and I enjoyed it but it didn’t knock my socks off. Given how excited I was for Ware’s latest release, I was a little bit let down.

About me? Who am I? I'm Ashley Houser, formerly Tocco (Toe-ko, not Taco). I live in Nashville, Tennessee and work as a pharmacy manager for Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. I married the love of my life in August 2017 and have been enjoying the ride ever since. But, let's get down to why I'm here. I'm a reader. I enjoy all things psychological, thriller, mystery, and everything in between. On occasion I find myself engrossed in a good dystopian novel as well. I started this blog as a place to share my thoughts on books I've ready in the mystery/thriller genre. And while that's still the case, it has now evolved to "all the books." Mystery, thriller, science fiction, southern fiction, young adult, you name it.
There is a little something for everybody. I hope this is a place where people feel inspired to pick up a book and jump into their next literary adventure. Happy reading!
