What a easy page turn.
Just a ripping story that didn't lose pace. I was trying to pick an ending while tearing through it but had no idea how it would pan out. The twists come left and right in the back end. A nice palate cleanser that prepares me for the behemoth novel that awaits.........4/5.

A real page turner with an interesting unexpected twist.

I started one of her other books long ago and couldn't read it. I read this book. It is bad. Characters are poorly drawn. The plot is sloppy. The only good thing is that it is an E book, at the library, and is free. I just finished What's Left Of Me Is Yours. That is a good book. The Turn Of The Key is not.

The best Ruth Ware title I've read!! I just loved it. The ending was terrible and terrific at the same time. What a gem!

One of my very favorite authors. I've read every one of her books.

An imperfect nanny, precocious unruly children, a heavy stepping ghost, betrayal and an isolated mansion..all the ingredients for a thriller. I was enjoying the story so much, I did not see the ending coming. I also enjoyed the method of reading the story through letters to a lawyer. I don't usually read this genre but I greatly enjoyed this book.

I love all of Ruth Ware's book, but this was one of my favorites. Although some didn't find the main character likeable, I believe she redeemed herself in the end. Usually I can see the final twist coming, but did not in this one! I loved reading about the aspects of having a "future home" as well, being a technology geek. Great book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this roller coaster of a book. Once you think you know what's going on, there's a twist, with a HUGE one at the end! If you enjoy psychological thrillers with a bit of a creep factor, I would definitely check this out!

Captivated from the beginning. Quick, and interesting mystery. The only thing I would change would be the book cover......by adding a beautiful landscape of the house and garden too....and then the key, maybe.....😏
