This is the highest rating I’ve ever given a Ruth Ware book. I was happily anticipating this latest release by her and she didn’t let me down. This, for me, is the best book by Ruth Ware to date.
This story revolves around Rowan, a nanny who finds a job that seems too good to be true. A gorgeous old house in the middle of no where in Scotland. Rich yet absent employers, 4 beautiful little girls to care for and ridiculously high salary.
This definitely smacked of gothic mystique even more so than her last book ‘The Death of Mrs Westaway’.
I found this book richer in thrills, spine tingles and simple all round creepiness!
