In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

In a Dark, Dark Wood was interesting enough -- but I didn't really "root" for anyone character or relate to any of them.

I was much more interesting in the life of the characters before, then current day. Basically what happens is that a group of friends get together in a cabin in the middle on nowhere for a bachelorette party. A long ago friend, who has become a recluse of sorts is unexpectedly invited, she hesitantly accepts the invitation to join her long lost group of friends.
The group gathers together and some peculiar things begin to occur,  Nora, Lee whatever her name is --- wakes up in the hospital with memory loss and injuries. Lenora needs to uncover what happened in order to clear her name. The story jumps back and forth here from current day, to the days of the bachelorett party to the days of 16 year old, Lenora.

The stories of the past and all the characters are so much more interesting then what is going on in current day. I hope, Ware does a prequel! 

Overall the read is enjoyable and uncovering the mystery is fun! An easy read!

Grade: B
