In a Dark, Dark Wood, by Ruth Ware
Sometimes the only thing to fear…is yourself. Leonora Lee to some, Nora to others is a reclusive writer, but when an old friend unexpectedly invites her to a weekend away in an eerie glass house, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. But a haunting realization creeps in to the party: they are not alone in the woods. Forty-eight hours later, Nora wakes up in a hospital bed with the knowledge that someone is dead. This gripping thriller will have readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page.
Based on the title, In The Dark Dark Wood and the great eerie book cover, I was hoping for creepiness and devilment in the snowy outdoors, but instead received a fair to middling somewhat predictable crime-myste. Based on the title, In The Dark Dark Wood and the great eerie book cover, I was hoping for creepiness and devilment in the snowy outdoors, but instead received a fair to middling somewhat predictable crime-mystery that nonetheless kept me reading into the early morning hours. While the character's actions and conversations seemed a bit juvenile for their age, still a solid 3 Star entertaining debut read from an author I would definitely try again.

The best of them capture the essence of what has gone before and give a sense of completion. Fictional endings help us to make sense of the ways we try to make sense of our lives. The pressure to deliver is immense: questions must be answered, ambiguities resolved, loose ends tied up, judgments passed. In crime fiction there is arguably a bigger onus on the writer. Psychological thrillers lure readers in with the promise of a mystery and a revelation.
