The Death of Mrs. Westaway Reviews
2.5 stars! Ruth Ware in my opinion has the absolute best sinister, gothic, and enticing covers ever! They have always grabbed my attention and gave me that feeling that I just HAD to read the book. It is just too bad that my excitement didn’t follow through to the end of this story though.

A mystery with no domestic violence, no child abuse, no graphic violence, sexual assault, no wives looking out of the window! Finally, a thriller that doesn't make you feel bad with the content.

This was my first Ruth Ware book. I know, where have I been? .....and boy I was not in the least disappointed. Put together a somewhat mistaken identity, a young girl on the run from a dangerous creditor of the broken teeth, broken bone variety, a strange family, a missing sister, a Gothic mansion, an old, scary, nasty housekeeper, and the death of the matriarch and you have the makings of this wond ...more
NEVER BELIEVE YOUR OWN LIES.
The Death of Mrs. Westaway is a cleverly crafted atmospheric mystery fueled by deceit. Since I was not a fan of The Lying Game, I was hesitant to read this, but I am so glad I did!

I finished this book last night. It was one of those books that I stayed up late on a work night to finish, because I was so invested in the story. Hal’s dilemma had me completely immersed in the book. I th ...more
After “The Lying Game” which was a little disappointing to me, I was thoroughly thrilled and engrossed in this new book. Ms. Ware has again written a twisty, dark, atmospheric thriller, this time throwing family, inheritance and sibling rivalry into the brew.
