I’m joining Rose City Reader as she encourages fellow bloggers to share the beginnings of a book we are reading.
I found The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware on the New-Arrivals shelf at the library. I was hooked by the end of the first chapter.
In my dream, the girl was drifting, far below the crashing waves and the cries of the gulls in the cold, sunless depths of the North Sea. Her laughing eyes were white and bloated with salt water; her pale skin was wrinkled; her clothes ripped by jagged rocks and disintegrating into rags.
Most of the story takes place aboard a luxurious cabin cruiser heading toward Norway. A young journalist sees a woman in the cabin next door, but then the woman is never seen agin. Tfhee’s no proof she went overboard. Where did she go? This is a great mystery.
