The Turn of the Key
- Written by: Ruth Ware
- Narrated by: Imogen Church
- Length: 12 hrs and 13 mins
When Rowan stumbles across an ad for a live-in nanny, she’s looking for something else completely. But it seems like too good an opportunity to miss - with a staggeringly generous salary. And when she arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is smitten - by the luxurious "smart" house fitted out with all modern conveniences, by the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and by this picture-perfect family. What Rowan doesn’t know is that she’s stepping into a nightmare - one that will end with a child dead and Rowan in prison awaiting trial for murder.
Not her best

Slow. Maybe not best pace for audiobook.
I get that the author was trying to build suspense, and maybe the effect was achieved in print, but it made for a long and tedious listen.
The last few chapters were good, but do you want to wade through 15 chapters to get to the good part?
I'm a fan of her other books, but would recommend giving this one a miss.
