Book Review Blurb: The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

Ruth Ware writes very compelling thrillers, full of secrets and drama and mysteries that leave everything up in the air as a possibility right up until the moment they resolve themselves. This time she’s taken on the nanny-family relationship, and the result is eerie and delightfully twisty – as expected. Sort of. Until it ended – in about 3 pages. Ugh.

I really liked this one – right up until it ended, rather abruptly and oddly given the lead-in to the resolution. It felt like someone called “TIME, pencil’s down!” and the author had ten seconds to resolve everything and did the best she could with the time she had… It made this a 3-star read for me instead of a 4-, and left me feeling oddly unsatisfied, which is all the more frustrating since the slow burning build to the dramatic end is one of the things I usually like most about Ware’s writing. It was still an enjoyable read, but the ending left me wanting more and felt like an unfortunate change-up…

Thanks to NetGalley for my review copy.
