The Turn of the Key

A five star read by none other than Ruth Ware. In truth, this is my second Ruth Ware book, and honestly, they just keep getting better. I’ll keep this short because honestly, at this point, I don’t think you need much convincing to read a Ruth Ware novel.

Turn of the Key is about a young woman named Rowan who takes on a to-good-to-be-true nannying post in a fancy, high-tech, smart house in Scotland, only to then be accused of murdering one of the children in her care.

This book has Ware’s eeriness amped up to eleven. I would get chills thinking about this book. I gave a copy to a friend because I just couldn’t stop recommending it to people. The sheer terror of Rowan can be felt, and sympathized with, on each page, and you can’t help but question and guess alongside her: “What the hell is going on?”

I listened to a spotify playlist of thunderstorms while I read this because it really fit the ambiance in case you needed more to push you to read this this fall. A perfect autumn creepy, eery, chilly read.
