The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
Lo Blacklock, travel journalist, has finally landed her big break: a spot on a press junket for the luxury yacht cruise, Aurora Borealis. Departing from London, the yacht is sailing to the picturesque Norwegian fjords, where a select group of travel writers will be treated to otherworldly views of the Northern Lights.
The scenery is breathtaking. The food is exquisite. But something is off. Lo is certain that she’s witnessed someone being thrown overboard. A body drifting out to sea and a blood-smeared cabin window aren’t the scenic views she was hoping for her first night aboard. After alerting the appropriate crew members, Cabin 10 is thoroughly inspected and a head count of everyone onboard is conducted. No one is missing. Everything appears fine, except her gut tells her it’s not.
A once-in-a-lifetime trip turns dicey as Lo sets out to dig for the truth like any good journalist would. With each passing hour, the intimate yacht setting starts to feel claustrophobic, especially since there’s a good chance she may be rubbing elbows with a murderer. Frazzled and sleep-deprived, she wonders if it’s her best career move to keep pressing the captain and crew with questions. Readers will be rooting for her as she puts her investigative skills to work in this Agatha Christie-style thriller. It seems cruising isn’t always gourmet meals and spa treatments. Sometimes it’s murder.
