Hey Book Lovers,
Its raining a ton outside today which means it’s a perfect day for a review. Today I have a review of John Rector’s new book The Ridge. This book was released April 25, 2017. The first book I ever read by Rector was Ruthless is 2015 which read through a blog tour. I didn’t love it, because it felt like there were so many things that were left unresolved. So I didn’t leave feeling fulfilled by the book. This book was sent to me by the publisher Thomas and Mercer for review. This is no way affects my opinion of the book. As usual you will get an honest review.
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.
This book reminded me alot of the books I’ve read by Gillian Flynn. As you’re reading it you know there’s something going on in the town of Willow Ridge, but you don’t know what. Through out the story Rector introduces a variety of characters and piece by piece the story unfolds. It isn’t until the end where everything is truly revealed about the town and its people. Once things are beginning to be revealed what really has happened is truly sad.
What are you reading on this rainy day?
I hope you all havr a wonderful day despite the weather and as always Happy Reading.
