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.

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.

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.

Loved it!

I absolutely loved this novel. Would like to have read more about the chemical process of things, but I still give the book 5 stars. If you are a fan of "West World" or "Stepford Wives", you'll like this book.

Enjoyed

I enjoyed this book and thought the concept behind the story was good although I had figured it out halfway into the book. I also liked that it was not full of bad language and sex scenes that would have added nothing to it. I listened to the audio version on audible and thought it was very well done.

Good & unusual story

Enjoyed listening to it. The struggles of the main characters seemed normal at first glance but were sometimes not as normal as they seemed.

Combo of Pleasantville/Stepford Wives + The Truman Show

This held my interest very well. The only con was that I could’ve used more character development, at times I felt like I was missing thing - almost as if there was a prequel to the book that I should’ve already read. But if you can get over that, the overall idea is interesting, it’s been done in other ways but was still able to be different.
