Thank you to Netgalley and Simon & Schuster for access to this book in exchange for my honest review. I have previously read The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware so I was ecstatic when I was approved for an advance reader copy of The Turn Of The Key!
Letters. This book is one big letter written by Rowan Caine, a nanny accused of murder, to Mr. Wrexham, a lawyer she hopes will take on her case. Rowan takes us step by step on how she was hired and what happened during her time as nanny at the Heatherbrae House in Scotland.
Is she unreliable? Ware wrote this to have the reader going back and forth wondering if Rowan is really innocent as she claims. Is she just going crazy? What really is going on? I don’t want to reveal too much more because the less I describe, the better it is for you the reader.
Side note: I couldn’t read this at night, there are some pretty scary parts. There are definitely some creepy parts. This is a TRUE psychological thriller…I have not read one this spooky in a LONG time. Talk about a modern ghost story, this one is chilling to the core. I was flipping through the pages wanting to seek vengeance on who could kill an innocent child as Rowan told us all she knows.
This ending. THIS ENDING!!!!!! This book made my head spin and kept me up at night thinking what could be going on. I never, NEVER suspected the ending…and I loved every second of it. It is not a let down and it’s a shock that will make you gasp out loud. There’s more than meets the eye with The Turn Of The Key. This was the best book I have read all year and will be hard to top!
This book is being released TOMORROW, Tuesday, August 6th. It is available for pre-order now! Don’t walk, RUN to the store to grab your copy!!!!
