Review: In a Dark, Dark Wood

In a Dark, Dark Wood In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Invited by an old school friend Clara to her Hen Party, Nora accepts the invitation to spend a weekend with her at The Dark Wood. It is a remote and eerie place, limited mobile phone service, she arrives with another friend Nina, and it is not long before both of them feeling like bolting and rushing home. Things move fast, there is plenty to keep you rooted to the book, the atmosphere is very spooky and you can feel yourself urging them to leave. Go on get out you are whispering under your breath.

There are a few friends at the cottage, but Nora only knows Clara and Nina. Games are planned, clay pigeon shooting is planned, and plenty drinking games, but believe me when I tell you this, things are not at all as they seem, there is more planned to happen than Nora could ever imagine, and it is not at all good. This is a great little spooky story, with plenty twists and turns, and it will keep you guessing all the way to the end.

I received a copy from the publishers via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
