I am always excited when a Ruth Ware book comes out I ve been hooked since Dark Dark Wood but I was beyond disappointed with this one There was too much internal dialogue with Hal and too much unnecessary repetitive text convincing us she s a good person The plot was a good one but it just lumbered on and never really went anywhere I was irrated by Hal in the end and lost interest in the outcome of her storyRuth s passion for research comes across in bucket loads The beautiful way she described the individual tarot cards was almost spellbinding but the story just didn t have enough balls for me

This is the first novel I ve read by Ruth Ware and if this is the standard I can expect then it ll probably be my lastI was expecting a mystery with a gothic feel After all a long lost inheritance a supposed scam family secrets and a stately pile in Cornwall complete with a sinister housekeeper sounded like Agatha Christie by way of Daphne du Maurier Unfortunately though this is a book full of literary tropes and clich s none of which are executed particularly wellIf you haven t read this novel yet and don t want any spoilers stop reading nowMy first issue which seemed like a recurrent problem was how much repetition the author threw into certain parts For example she spends a long time establishing that Hal the young woman who believes she s been mistakenly left in the eponymous Mrs Westaway s will is a decent person but has fallen on hard times There s the unpaid bills threatening debt collectors insufficient money for meals It seems that the early chapters are an attempt to establish how and why Hal decides to pretend she s Mrs Westaway s granddaughter even though she knows she s not And this theme resurfaces later on And while I understand the author wants to paint the main protagonist in a positive light it just felt too long and too laboured It s the same with all the tarot readings throughout the book which just felt like filler material I got bored in the end by Hal s constant references to tarotMy next issue was with Trepassen House itself and the location What a wasted opportunity The author simply failed to paint a convincing or gripping enough picture of an old decrepit home in a remote Cornish location In fact there was nothing of Cornwall about this novel at all it could have been set anywhere Apart from the odd reference to the sea or cliffs or someone s Cornish burr it just didn t work It was woefully disappointing in this respect What could have been dark gloomy and sinister was simply droll And the same goes for the housekeeper there just wasn t enough done with the character At one point when Hal feels sure she s being spied on by her and that she may in fact be able to walk without her cane my interest was piued However this didn t really go anywhere and it never was explained how the housekeeper had seemed to manage to move around easily after allThe plot itself is so predictable At one point where Hal is considering if it could possibly be true and she really was Mrs Westaway s long lost granddaughter I actually inserted a note on my Kindle saying no you re her great niece And that was it at 31% in sooner actually I had the plot figured out And believe me I m not someone who s that great at working out plots But this one was paper thin The problem is there s a relatively small cast of characters you know there s a family secret you know from diary entries that the person writing them is Hal s mother and that she s a cousin of the Westaways and I also figured out that her father had to be one of the cousins thus making her a niece and a granddaughter too It wasn t exactly a knotty mysteryReally I was glad to finish this book and move on to another It felt formulaic unimaginative and there just wasn t enough atmosphere or pace to it to make it a good read The cover was fantastic though just a shame the book itself didn t live up to that
