Ing trial for murder Writing to her lawyer from prison she struggles to explain the unravelling events that led to her incarceration It wasn’t just the constant surveillance from the cameras installed around the house or the malfunctioning technology that woke the household with booming music or turned the lights off at the worst possible time It wasn’t just the girls who turned out to be a far cry from the immaculately behaved model children she met at her interview It wasn’t even the way she was left alone for wee. A nanny in jail accused of murdering one of the children in her care This is her story When Rowan a young nanny who lives in London comes across for an ad seeking a nanny to live in a remote area of Scotland it sounds too good to be true The pay is high the house is beautiful and the family seems lovely She is warned that previous nannies have uit due to the house being haunted Rowan doesn t believe in ghosts so she pays no heed to the warning She is hired for the position and packs up her life in London and moves to remote Scotland But what is beautiful on the surface is hiding deep dark secretsOne of my favorite things about The Turn of the Key is the house which is named Heatherbrae Euipped with state of the art technology the whole house runs off an app it takes on a life of its own Juxtaposed with Victorian architecture and Gothic feel Heatherbrae adds another layer to The Turn of the KeyThe Turn of the Key is told only through Rowan s eyes as she shares what led to her arrest through a series of letters to a solicitor Rowan is an unreliable narrator and the reader must contend with a lot of telling While this type of narrative style usually irks me I found that it works in this case as Rowan provides a detailed account of her time at Heatherbrae One just needs to continue to uestion whether or not her version of events is accurateThere are some twists as well some red herrings thrown in for good measure I guessed many of the smaller twists but I completely missed the most significant twist And I was looking for it Sadly my detective skills failed This twist added an additional layer and made me want to reread from the beginning The ending felt a bit rushed and I could have done without the final letter I would rather have been left guessing than be told a less than satisfying conclusion to Rowan s story Overall this is an atmospheric slower paced psychological thriller with some intriguing twists and turns I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

The Turn of The Key

Ks at a time with no adults around apart from the enigmatic handyman Jack Grant It was everything She knows she’s made mistakes She admits that she lied to obtain the post and that her behavior toward the children wasn’t always ideal She’s not innocent by any means But she maintains she’s not guilty at least not of murder Which means someone else is Full of spellbinding menace and told in Ruth Ware’s signature suspenseful style The Turn of the Key is an unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time. In the beginning of the book Rowan is writing a letter to Mr Wexham begging for him to help her She tells him that she is innocent of a crime of murder that she did not commit and that she needs his assistance with her trial that is coming up soon He is a lawyer and she wants him to prove her innocenceThere is an old house located in a remote area in the middle of nowhere in the Scottish Highlands Rowan becomes a nanny for a family of three children in this creepy estate The house has a haunted past Other nannies left and the family has a hard time keeping nannies The house has everything that you can imagine and Rowan is getting paid very well It is a smart house with different technology and it has creepy noises in the night Dark and disturbing events happen in this house The parents leave Rowan alone with their children in this estate What Rowan doesn t know is that she is stepping into a nightmare There are cameras installed in the house and she is having a difficult time and she knows that she has made some mistakes There is something about a Ruth Ware book that makes me excited to read it I loved The Death of Mrs Castaway and I knew that I would love this one once I opened the book This is gothic suspense a mystery and a thriller It is so creepy I loved the gothic atmosphere and it s elements The book was uite addicting It was totally gripping especially if you like gothic suspense like me It is so haunting I didn t see the twists coming and it had a couple of jaw dropping moments and I loved them I kept guessing till the very end I thought the characters were developed well and it was very well written The ending was so surprising This was a Traveling Sister read I want to thank Edelweiss Simon Schuster and Ruth Ware for the ARC of this book in exchange for an honest reviewAvailable Now

When she stumbles across the ad she’s looking for something else completely But it seems like too good an opportunity to miss a live in nannying post with a staggeringly generous salary And when Rowan Caine arrives at Heatherbrae House she is smitten by the luxurious “smart” home fitted out with all modern conveniences by the beautiful Scottish Highlands and by this picture perfect family What she doesn’t know is that she’s stepping into a nightmare one that will end with a child dead and herself in prison await. I am telling you the truth The unvarnished ugly truth And it is all that It is unpolished and unpleasant and I don t pretend I acted like an angel But I didn t kill anyone I just fucking didn t This wasn t bad but it was nowhere near as good as I was expecting from an author like Ruth Ware The protagonist Rowan Caine stumbles upon an opportunity that she considers amazing and I would consider an absolute nightmare a live in nanny to four children including one baby and one bratty teenager On top of this she s staying in the high tech Heatherbrae House a refurbished smart home with constant surveillance voice activated lights and an app to go with itUnlike Rowan I think this sounds like a horror story And honestly I found the book to be at its strongest when it is drawing on creepy horror tropes like creaking footsteps in the attic objects going missing and reappearing where the MC knows she already looked and freaky dolls The atmosphere is uite good and it would make for a somewhat spooky Halloween read The combination of nightmare children a malfunctioning house that seems haunted and the hunky but suspicious handyman kept me readingI also liked how Ware framed the story within a letter to a solicitor It worked so well that I m surprised I haven t read books that have done this before that I recallBut it just wasn t very strong as a mystery in my opinion The culprit can be guessed pretty easily this really isn t a surprising reveal any and it irked me how it doesn t make sense for Rowan to withhold the identity of the dead child though of course she does so because once we know who it is it removes any doubt as to who the killer must be The author also dropped a lot of heavy handed hints about view spoilerRowan not being who she says she is hide spoiler
