In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

I loved Ruth Ware’s debut novel In a Dark, Dark Wood. Our locked room in this book is a dark, dark house in a dark, dark wood, and our main character Nora (another writer) is arriving for the hen weekend (bachelorette party) of an old school friend.

I think most have us have experienced murderous thoughts on a bachelorette weekend, especially when we only really know and like the bride-to-be (or is that just me?) This is a dark and suspenseful story where nothing is quite what it seems.
Read about another entry on the list.

In A Dark Dark Wood is among Claire Douglas's five great psychological thrillers set in isolated places and Jody Gehrman's top seven novels that use weather to enhance the suspense.
