The Woman in Cabin 10 was a great suspense story, and it made me want to go on another cruise. Lo, a travel journalist, gets a break when her pregnant boss cannot go on the maiden voyage of a new, small, luxury cruise ship, The Aurora Borealis. The night before the journey, Lo’s apartment is broken into, so she’s a little on edge. When she witnesses something strange happening in the cabin next door in the dead of night, no one believes her. She begins to go a little crazy, and she doesn’t know who to trust.
This book was written so well. I didn’t know whether to trust Lo herself even. I wasn’t sure what was meant to be going on, which is the best kind of suspense story. I was sympathetic to Lo right away, so I had the connection with her to get me really invested in the story. This story is written in first person with some emails and news articles in between sections. Lo’s boyfriend and parents are looking for her in the present day timeline, but Lo’s story is told from the beginning a week or so into the past.
There were a lot of characters in this story, so it was a little hard to keep track of them in the beginning. I listened to this book on audio CD, and the narrator was excellent, plus the accent was fun. I wish I had it on Audible though, so I could have read it faster. I just needed to know what was going to happen. I highly recommend this book.
