When she stumbles across the ad, she’s looking for something else completely. But it seems like too good an opportunity to miss—a live-in nannying post, with a staggeringly generous salary. And when Rowan Caine arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is smitten—by the luxurious “smart” home fitted out with all modern conveniences, by the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and by this picture-perfect family.
What she doesn’t know is that she’s stepping into a nightmare—one that will end with a child dead and herself in prison awaiting trial for murder.Writing to her lawyer from prison, she struggles to explain the unravelling events that led to her incarceration. It wasn’t just the constant surveillance from the cameras installed around the house, or the malfunctioning technology that woke the household with booming music, or turned the lights off at the worst possible time. It wasn’t just the girls, who turned out to be a far cry from the immaculately behaved model children she met at her interview. It wasn’t even the way she was left alone for weeks at a time, with no adults around apart from the enigmatic handyman, Jack Grant.It was everything.She knows she’s made mistakes. She admits that she lied to obtain the post, and that her behavior toward the children wasn’t always ideal. She’s not innocent, by any means. But, she maintains, she’s not guilty—at least not of murder. Which means someone else is.
Turn of a Key is a spooky thriller that will curl its ghostly fingertips around you and keep you spellbound until you've reached the very end!

This is only my second Ruth Ware book but I have to say, she knows how to pen a real page-turner! I was completely captivated by this story, devouring it eagerly and left thinking about it during those painful times I couldn't be reading it. Turn of a Key follows Rowan Caine, a daycare employee that stumbles upon a job ad that is too good to be true. The novel unfolds at the perfect pace! Slowly unraveling bit by bit, amping up the thrilling and mysterious plot. The book is an eerie whodunnit that will have you eating out of the palm of its hand. 

I really loved Rowan's character. She is far more than meets the eye and I have to say, her twist was completely unpredictable and left me jaw dropped. I was stunned. It was pleasantly unexpected! Ware's writing style is impeccable, completely drawing you in, and leaving you wanting more after you've turned the last page. 

Turn of the Key was exactly what I want in a suspenseful thriller and more. Don't worry about getting too comfortable when settling in to read it, you'll just end up on the edge of your seat anyways!
