Book Review: Going Rogue, Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine (Stephanie Plum, #29) by Janet Evanovich

Going Rogue: Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine (Stephanie Plum, #29) by Janet Evanovich was published on November 1, 2022.  The novel opens with Stephanie Plum arriving at the bonds office on a Monday morning, and office manager Connie Rosolli isn't there.  When Stephanie finally gets into the office, the file room has been tossed.  Then comes the ransom call, which sends Stephanie on the hunt for a mysterious coin that she needs to get Connie released. The Stephanie Plum book series is one that I've come to love and enjoy when I need a light read that will give me some laughs.  Right off the start, this edition has yet again made me think it's now being ghost written because Lula is asking if one of the people bonded out by Vinnie is Joe Morelli's grandmother.  Lula already know who she is, so this is what made me think that it's ghost written.  If the author just wanted to reintroduce Bella, there had to be a better way to do this. With that being said, I absolutely lov

Book Review: The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

The Woman in Cabin 10 has been compared to Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train by many, so there was some hesitation on my part about reading it at first but the pull of it being reminiscent of Agatha Christie was greater. After reading a synopsis of the novel, I desperately wanted an Advanced Readers Copy but that wasn't in the cards for me. 

When it was released to the general public, I purchased The Woman in Cabin 10 from Barnes & Noble with the intent of reading it while on my first cruise. However, I had second thoughts figuring it probably wouldn't be such a good idea for me to read a thriller taking place on a cruise ship while I was actually on a cruise. So, I put off reading the book, and boy, was I ever glad I did so because I would have been paranoid and imagining things the entire time. 

This was the first novel I've read that was written by Ruth Ware and actually had never heard of her before. It kept me guessing to the very end and did not disappoint. I definitely enjoyed it way more then Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, and I'm not really sure why it was compared to them. 

One of my first thoughts after finishing the book was that I wanted to read the whole thing again followed quickly by the thought it could have been a modern day Agatha Christie novel. I'd compare it to Christie's Murder on the Orient Express or Evil Under the Sun. I give it four stars out of five.


Synopsis of The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

Lo Blacklock, the main character, wakes up the first night to see a person thrown overboard . . . a person who just happened to be staying in the cabin next to her. According to the employees of the cruise ship, no one was staying in the cabin next to Blacklock. 

The majority of the novel is spent by Blacklock trying to convince people that she wasn't crazy . . . that there really was someone staying in the cabin next to her who went overboard while trying to find out what happened.
