The Death of Mrs. WestawayThe Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware

A twisty, atmospheric thriller with a killer premise, this one also has something of a Dickensian vibe about it, with it’s over-the-top money collector and it’s chilling, Gothic house. There’s a lot of stammering and waffling by our protagonist (and why is her throat always “stiff”?), and the secondary characters were a bit overblown and overdone, but in general I enjoyed the story and found the plot itself absorbing.

A fun, entertaining, mindless read that I flew through and recommend reading while curled up in front of the fire on a cold, cheerless winter’s night.
