Review: Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware

36237273Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware

On a day that begins like any other, Hal receives a mysterious letter bequeathing her a substantial inheritance. She realizes very quickly that the letter was sent to the wrong person—but also that the cold-reading skills she’s honed as a tarot card reader might help her claim the money.

Soon, Hal finds herself at the funeral of the deceased…where it dawns on her that there is something very, very wrong about this strange situation and the inheritance at the centre of it.

Format: Audiobook
Narrator: Imogen Church
Published By: Harvill Secker/Simon Schuster Audio
Genre: Adult - Mystery, Thriller


Death of Mrs. Westaway was about a young woman who receives a letter for an inheritance that shouldn't be hers, and she decides to go and claim the money. What starts out as a deception soon turns into something more dangerous and deadly.

Out of all of Ruth Ware's novels that I have read to this date, this one was definitely my favorite. Unlike the first two novels I read of hers, In a Dark, Dark Wood and Women in Cabin 10, Hal isn't an unreliable witness and I found that I enjoyed her character more because of that. She also is a very strong character, and I was able to connect with her.

Like Ruth Ware's other books, I was able to figure out what the twist at the end was going to be, so it wasn't a shock when it was revealed. This is the one thing that always leaves me a little disappointed with her books because I would love for a twist that I don't see coming.

I would definitely recommend Death of Mrs. Westaway, if you are a fan of Ruth Ware's books and if you haven't read any of her books yet, and you love thrillers - I would probably start with this one because I consider it to be her best.
