Ruth Ware, author of The Turn of the Key

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 awaiting trial for murder.

The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

August 2019

I thoroughly enjoyed THE TURN OF THE KEY by Ruth Ware. When it opens, we know that a young woman is in jail, being held for having caused the death of a child. The story is told in her words as she seeks justice in her case. There is no reason for her to have committed this act, and, in fact, there is every reason for her not to have. And throughout these pages, Ruth will unfold a very solid case as to just what really happened.

Week of May 11, 2020

Paperback releases for the week of May 11th include James Patterson's CRISS CROSS, in which a mysterious serial killer known as "M" launches a deranged "investigation," forcing Alex Cross and his partner, John Sampson, to unearth long-forgotten secrets to survive --- or risk getting buried themselves; THE TURN OF THE KEY, a thrilling novel from Ruth Ware that explores the dark side of technology; SOMEONE WE KNOW by Shari Lapena, a domestic work of suspense that has two intriguing taglines: Maybe you don't know your neighbors as well as you thought you did and You never really know what people are capable of; THE FRIENDS WE KEEP, a heartwarming novel from Jane Green that traces a long friendship among three individuals who grow apart and then surprisingly find one another again; and DAD'S MAYBE BOOK, in which Tim O’Brien shares wisdom from a life in letters, lessons learned in wartime, and the challenges, humor and rewards of raising two sons.
