It It Girl; Ruth Ware
Gallery/Scout Press - 2022
(20 Books of Summer List)
Afterwards, it was the door she would remember. It was open, she kept saying to the police. I should have known something was wrong.
She could have retraced every step of the walk back from the hall: the gravel crunching beneath her feet of the path across the Old Quad, under the Cherwell Arch, then the illegal shortcut through the darkness of Fellows' Garden, her feet light on the soaked forbidden lawn. Oxford didn't need KEEP OFF THE GRASS signs; that lawn had been the preserve of dons and fellows for more than two hundred years without needing to remind undergraduates of the fact.
What do you think, read more or pass. I've have pretty good luck with this author and, I do like a good mystery set in academia, so I'm hoping this will be a winner.
I enjoyed it and I think you will. Definitely, keep reading!ReplyDelete
I hope I like it. An academic setting is always a plus for me too.Delete
Oh, good for you! I enjoyed this one, too.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed this one Laurel. Hope to start it in a few days.Delete
That's a nice opening I think. .ReplyDelete
I hope it's a good one Greg.Delete
I didn't care for the opening but I sense a good feeling about it.ReplyDelete
I know I will like the setting at least - we shall see.Delete
I have this one on my wishlist. It really looks good.ReplyDelete
I hope we will both like it Yvonne.Delete
This author has been hit and miss for me, but I think I want to read this one.ReplyDelete
Yes, I've definitely liked some of her books more than others.Delete
I might give this one a try. I loved her debut (In A Dark, Dark Wood), but was pretty disappointed with The Woman in Cabin 10.ReplyDelete
Some of her books were definitely better than others for me.ReplyDelete
I adored the first two books by this author but haven't read any recently. This sounds like a great read!ReplyDelete
I hope it is one of her better books; I've read them all except this one.ReplyDelete
This one is on my radar and I would definitely keep on reading if I were you so that you can tell all of us!ReplyDelete
I've only read one book by Ruth Ware but I keep adding her books to my TBR! Yes, I would definitely read :)ReplyDelete
