Publisher's Summary

With its manicured lawns, pastel houses, and quiet, tree-lined streets, Willow Ridge seems to be the perfect place for Megan and Tyler Stokes to start a new chapter in their lives together. But soon after settling in, Megan begins to notice cracks in the neighborhood's bright suburban facade - cracks that reveal a darker secret hidden just beneath the surface.

After an angry encounter with a neighbor takes a horrifying turn, Megan's waking nightmare truly begins - growing ever more chilling and bizarre with each shocking twist. Suddenly forced to question everything around her, Megan finds herself trapped between the specter of madness and the shadow of something far worse. Her only hope is to expose the community's pretty lies and discover the truth about what is really going on in Willow Ridge - a truth so devastating that her life will never be the same.

Keeps you guessing...

I really enjoyed this book. I don't want to give anything away, but if you like the old t.v. show Tha Twighlight Zone, you will definitely love this book. Narration was good too!

Fast, Fun and Entertaining!

This is a very bizarre book. I like John Rector and all the strange twists his books seem to take. This one is something of a cross between Pet Cemetery, The Stepford Wives and Hmmm!?!
I really can't go into the plot of this book any more than the book description without giving away what this book is about. However, I will say it did hold my attention and kept me entertained and guessing throughout as I tried to figure out what the heck was going on. I wasn't sure if this is a mystery, science fiction or horror.
So, if you're looking for a light fun and fast paced book to spend an afternoon with then I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this one!
Sara Mollo-Christensen did a very good job narrating, a little slow and so I did have to listen at 1.25 speed.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Creepy and fun hard-core noir sci-fi mystery!

Well, that was an interesting little novel! It's not really my cup of tea, but I enjoyed it. By "hard core noir" I mean very dark, even frighteningly dark. Having read several reviews on Goodreads prior to purchasing the novel, this book was no surprise.

Solid surprise!

This book was a unique escape and a pleasant surprise. The supporting characters held my interest and I wanted to know more about them. Perfect amount of dystopian sci-fi!

Not Rector’s best but good nonetheless

Starts out as a stereotypical “I was forced to live in the suburbs and I hate it” kind of story. Then quickly becomes something a little different. As usual Rector’s books are highly suspenseful and are always straight to the point. The downside of that is that his prose is very bare bones. There are no flashy or sparkling words to spice it up. Another downside of this particular book is that I can’t stand the main character. I don’t mind unlikable characters it’s just that this one is very annoying and clingy and makes you want to slap some sense into her and tell her to grow up. Overall though it’s another good book in John Rector’s resume but probably my least favorite of the bunch.

Interesting, but lacking

I loved The Grove by John Rector, but this novel did not compare. The prose is well-written, but stalls often. I love this author, but this book, while well written, did not have a believable plot line.

Fantastic!

I've read this book twice before listening to it, the book is really good but Sarah's performance puts it over the top!

Intrigingy, unrealistic, scary

The book reminded me of the movie Stepford wives with a twist. A very good story.

Wayward pines meets Stepford Wives

New to this Author. This is not usually my genre but I did enjoy the Wayward Pines series in Audio so I decided to give it a try.
This is a much shorter tangle to unravel than Pines but the similarities are so close it makes it hard to like this book as much as I did the Pines series.
Audio reader was great. And I may try another book by this author as I enjoyed the writing style.
