“It was growing dark, and somehow the shadows made it feel as if all the trees had taken a collective step towards the house, edging in to shut out the sky.”
-Ruth Ware, In a Dark, Dark Wood
Hi everyone! Today I’m *really* excited to show you this video Q&A with Ruth Ware on the blog tour of her fab new book, The Death of Mrs Westaway, which I cannot wait to read! I’ve been a fan of hers since I first read In a Dark Dark Wood so I’m really excited for this opportunity and would like to thank both the lovely people at Penguin/Vintage, and Ruth Ware herself for making this happen!
I hope you all enjoyed watching that!
Here’s the blurb for The Death of Mrs Westaway for all those interested in checking it out:
When Harriet Westaway receives an unexpected letter telling her she’s inherited a substantial bequest from her Cornish grandmother, it seems like the answer to her prayers. She owes money to a loan shark and the threats are getting increasingly aggressive: she needs to get her hands on some cash fast.
There’s just one problem – Hal’s real grandparents died more than twenty years ago. The letter has been sent to the wrong person. But Hal knows that the cold-reading techniques she’s honed as a seaside fortune teller could help her con her way to getting the money. If anyone has the skills to turn up at a stranger’s funeral and claim a bequest they’re not entitled to, it’s her.
Hal makes a choice that will change her life for ever. But once she embarks on her deception, there is no going back. She must keep going or risk losing everything, even her life…
Doesn’t that sound great?!
Thank you for reading everyone and don’t forget to check out the other stops on this blog tour!
