Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. At first, Lo's stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and terrifying nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for--and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo's desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong.

It was an interesting reading. But the impression is that author was thinking about possible future movie which could be made based on this book. There are so many unrealistic actions that in my opinion "damaged" what could be a real psychological thriller. She used theme of Agatha Christie- who is a murderer in this group of people?

The book was very good. One of the best novels I have read in awhile. It was a good murder mystery and kept me turning the pages. I really thought the ending was well written. I will read books from Ruth Ware again the future and plan to read her other book "In a Dark Dark Wood" next. Would recommend Girl in Cabin 10!

I enjoyed this book. I thought the first few chapters grabbed my interest starting out as somewhat of a thriller. It was enough to keep me reading more and wanting to know who the people were and if what they said were true. It does have that nice twist in the plot at the end with suspense and I like the mystery of the story. I didn't think the character was the strongest person because she was struggling with problems of her own, but to have to go through what happened made her better.

Very easy read. Slow build-up, not as much suspense and I'd expected, but a good book to get you by in the meantime,.

The cruise murder mystery idea caught my interest. The Woman in Cabin 10 had great build up, but it felt rushed at the end. I felt like the author was in a hurry to end the book as soon as possible.

Overall, it's a decent read!

This book is easy to read and I found it to be quite enjoyable.

As others have commented it does get a little dull about halfway through but by that point you're so committed to finding out what happens that you just accept it and keep going.

That being said the overall storyline and plot are well thought out. The story makes sense and is plausible.

Really did not care for this book and actually did not finish it. I disliked the crudeness and the language in it and it seemed to go nowhere. It is about a woman whose career in journalism and reporting takes her on a cabin cruiser owned by a very wealthy businessman. Cabin 10 is the cabin next to hers and a woman in that cabin. The reporter is constantly drunk it seems and always tired so I gave up after the first 100 pages. Too bad.

It was okay but I got tired of the main subject always being intoxicated.

"I love ports. I love the smell of tar and sea air, and the scream of the gulls. Maybe it's years of taking the ferry to France for summer holidays, but a harbor gives me a feeling of freedom in a way that an airport never does. Airports say work and security checks and delays. Ports say... I don't know. Something completely different. Escape, maybe.” - p. 34
