In a Dark, Dark Wood; Ruth Ware

In a Dark, Dark WoodIn a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

If only this hadn't been predictable! The writing and the set-up were good, atmospheric enough that (like any good horror movie or murder mystery) you know something is going to happen and you're pretty sure you know what that will be but are still interested in the who and the how. Where this fell apart for me was the why, telegraphed from afar and thus not surprising when it happened. There were a few moments when I thought, surely here is where there'll be a twist, where it won't be Professor Plum in the library with the candlestick, but, well, not this book. Still, I do read a lot of these books so perhaps for others it will be a surprise.
