Ruth Ware (born 1977), alias for Ruth Warburton, is a British psychological crime thriller author. Her novels include In a Dark, Dark Wood (2015), The Woman in Cabin 10 (2016), The Lying Game (2017) and The Death of Mrs Westaway (2018). Both In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 were on the U.K.'s Sunday Times and The New York Times top ten bestseller lists. She is represented by Eve White of the Eve White Literary Agency. She switched to Ruth Ware to distinguish her crime novels from the young adult fantasy novels published under her name, Ruth Warburton.

Ruth Ware was born in 1977 and grew up in Lewes. She studied English at Manchester University, where she developed a fascination with Old English and Middle English texts.

Before her writing career, Ware worked as a waitress, a bookseller and a publicist. She also spent time in Paris, teaching English as a foreign language.

Ware now lives near Brighton.

Another thriller that just didn't work. I feel like I remember this one being one of the novels that really got Ruth Ware popular, but I don't think it was very good. I found the whole set up completely implausible and the main character was so annoying.

I think I've read 7 of [[Ruth Ware]]'s novels now, and I'm not sure why. I guess they are entertaining in a way, but I don't think I've really loved any of them.

In a Dark, Dark Wood is the first psychological thriller written by British author Ruth Ware. It is about a woman who is invited to a bachelorette party for an ex friend of hers. She arrives out of curiosity as she has not seen this friend in a decade and a murder ensues.
I like Ware’s writing style, it is easy to read and flows nicely. The story overall is a quick, action packed thriller. The main character is likeable and the other characters are well rounded and she does a good job of expressing each individual personality.
I was a little disappointed by this one as I previously read It Girl and that one was much better. I will give her credit as this was her first in the genre. In It Girl I didn’t see the murderer coming…in this one I figured it out right away. There are also scenarios at the end that were not realistic.
This book also has taught me not to trust Reese Witherspoon’s choice in books. As her quote on the front of the book states that she was really scared during this story…literally nothing is scary about it…..
★★★ I’d recommend It Girl over this one…

This was the first book I have read by this author. I enjoyed it but didn't like the open-ended ending.

Rowan Caine in jail for a murder she swears she did not commit. She starts a letter to an attorney several times trying to tell her story but can't get it "right". This book is her letter to the attorney.

It starts when Rowan is searching for something on Google and she stumbles across an ad for a nanny for a family with 4 girls in Scotland. She applies and travels from London to Scotland for the interview with the mother (father is traveling) and meets 3 of the 4 girls (the oldest is in boarding school, the middle 2 are in elementary school and the baby is just shy of 1 year). The house is quite remote and her travels were long so she stayed overnight. Before she left, one of the girls hugs her and says "Don't come - the ghosts won't like it". Rowan brushes it off, returns to London to get some stuff and returns to the home to start her job. It's a "smart" home and everything is controlled by an app which takes some getting used to. Rowan quickly learns that she is one of many nannies the family has had in a short timeframe and all of the other nannies left pretty quickly. Her bedroom is on the top floor of the house and at night she hears creaking noises above her as if someone is pacing up there.

After two sleepless nights, she is beginning to feel paranoid and is wondering why all the other nannies left and starts looking into the stories she's heard from people around town and Jack, the handyman of the house/grounds. She uncovers some disturbing things that took place there.

I never thought I would enjoy a Ruth Ware novel so little, but "The Lying Game" is dreadfully drawn out and has a cliched and predictable mystery. There is close to nothing that felt fresh or original in this story; I feel as if I've read the same plot dozens of times before, and there was nothing about this one that made it stand out. The writing is solid, but it doesn't save the rest of the elements. Also, there is a bizarrely persistent thread of Islamophobia towards one main character, and although at one point another character makes a weak attempt at "understanding" her friends religion, the sheer amount of snide remarks made and prejudice towards the Muslim woman that go unchecked just don't sit well with me.… (mais)
