I finally finished this book! Geez, it only took me forever. It’s not the book’s fault, I’ve just been super busy. The story was actually pretty easy to get into. I’ve posted on social media several times about the book and a lot of you have asked if it’s good.
Lo Blacklock is a travel writer who is writing a piece on a new luxury cruise line, The Aurora. She witnesses a murder in the cabin next to hers – Cabin 10. Or did she? There’s no guest registered in Cabin 10. Did Lo imagine the whole thing?
That’s really all I can say without giving the plot away. Here is a short list of my likes and dislikes:
What I liked:
- I was drawn in and intrigued from page one.
- The plot was easy to follow. The Woman in Cabin 10 is a great beach or sit-by-the-pool read. Very little thinking is required (and that’s good because I hate to think and read at the same time), so you’ll have no trouble picking up where you left off after putting it down for a while. You’ll also have no trouble putting it down for a while.
- There is a really great twist that I didn’t see coming. Who doesn’t LOVE a good twist?!
What I didn’t like:
- I wasn’t a fan of the main character, Lo. I felt like she was whiny and a bit of a train wreck. Okay, she was a BIG train wreck.
- The second half of the book was super slow. I skimmed through five or six pages towards the end because they were redundant.
- I was so excited and caught off guard by the twist but the ending was blah.
Overall, I would give The Woman in Cabin 10 two out of five stars. Having said that, it would make a great movie!
Recently, I’ve seen/heard of other books by this same author and I can see myself giving her another try. When I do, I’ll be sure to share my thoughts!
