This was a quick and nice read. The first half of the book felt like some kind of light horror story cliché and I was waiting for a werewolf coming around the corner, but it was still entertaining enough for me to keep reading. The characters were interesting and the story was good. There was a nice message at the end and the predictable twist I was waiting for. Overall, it was a good read and I recommend it if you're looking for an easy to read and entertaining "thrillerish" book.

Thank you to the author, the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book.

When Courtney and her new husband Henry settle for his parents house so she can meet them for the first time she is surprised at how far they have to go. Even though he said it was in the middle of nowhere, she didn’t expect it to actually be in the middle of nowhere! After parking in a lot and walking four hours through the woods she realizes he was telling the truth. When they arrive at his parents home she sees her happy his mom is to see him and how unhappy she is to meet Courtney. His dad on the other hand is so nice and funny and she really likes him but it isn’t long after meeting them that his mom‘s cold demeanor gets colder and things altogether just get weird! When they arrived Courtney‘s biggest worry is if they will like her or not, but before it’s over her biggest worry will how can she get away from her new “in-laws?“ this is one of those books that although they have minor plot holes it is so good you keep breathing because you want to know how it will end. This book is truly a pleasure read because it is so thrilling and OMG it is so crazy! I truly truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. I was given this book by Ned Galli and I am leaving this review voluntarily please forgive any mistakes as I am blind and dictate my review but all opinions are definitely my own.

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for the chance to read and review this one. 
Wow. What in the world!! I was unsure of how I felt as I was reading it and it took me a bit to figure out how the end was going to go. It definitely had a twist. Well more than one twist. One I suspected, the other I didn’t at all. 
It was an easy and entertaining read even if it was a little out there.

With in-laws like these who needs enemies?  I absolutely love this thriller.  I spent most of the book trying to figure out exactly what was going on but in the best way possible.  Amazing ending as well!

Dark, Domestic Noir…
A tangled web indeed in this dark, domestic noir with a poisonous sting in the tail. Exactly what has Chelsea signed up for - certainly not these in-laws which may just be everyone’s idea of hell - she has, however, agreed to spend what she hoped would be a nice, short stay with them along with her new husband. Living off grid, the in-laws have more than a few secrets and it becomes apparent right from the off that not all of these are going to be pleasant. Chelsea’s stay is soon to transcend into something she could never have foreseen. Twists and shocks aplenty in this chilling, menacing suspense.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well thought-out, and the premise was different. The story was fast paced and kept be interested. 
Some parts seemed rushed, I wish there was a little more detail on some of the events.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book and would read more by this author.

Martha and Arthur Jameson are expecting a visit from their son Henry, and his new wife, Chelsea.  Martha and Arthur live off the grid growing their own vegetables and trapping their own meat.  They enjoy being independent.  Arthur has leg problems and Martha is impatient with increasing medical problems.

Just before arriving, Henry and Chelsea stop for gas and snacks.  Chelsea is surprised to see a board with so many posters of missing people. 

Chelsea is doing her best to be nice and complimentary to her in-laws but is shocked to see some of the primitive ways in which her in-laws live.  But it’s just for the weekend so she is trying to grin and bear it.

Before she knows what’s going on, Chelsea finds herself caught in a nightmare worse than she could ever have imagined.  Will she be able to escape?

This is by far one of the most unusual plots I have ever read.  The story is crazy scary and so compelling that I simply could not put it down until I read the last page.  This author has an incredible imagination and I look forward to reading more by him.  Wow!

Copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

First off the editing is horrendous! I'm hoping it's just because this was a pre release copy but it made it very difficult to read and to follow who's pov we were looking at etc. Which is such a shame for the author because I did actually really like this book. It's a story king but we love that sometimes! It hooks you in from the start and there are a couple of wee twists and turns along the way. You get told the main premise straight from the off so the rest of the book is just the suspense building and that feeling about when things were going to kick off and how bad it'd get. There were a few things I didn't see coming which made the twisted tale even better and I really enjoy it. Its really short and simple and would have been really easy to read if it wasn't for the train wreck of the editing. This to me is the perfect wee fun beach read since it doesn't take too much brain power to follow along and keeps you intrigued enough to always need one more chapter. The characters aren't really that well developed but they have the basic outlines shining through and it's not a book that needs deep character analysis. It's more what these people are rather than who. I know it's got some bad review but I'd say that's more for the editing making it almost impossible to read, overall the story itsself was pretty decent

I literally read this book in one day. This book drew me in from the moment I started it. It’s a quick read. 
This book was suspenseful and it really got me in the end. I didn’t see the coming. 
He really got you with the whole in laws since you know everyone loves their in laws 😅

Man where do I even start? I feel bad but this was terrible. This really needs an editor. You know when a word is exaggerated and the author uses italics for it? Well, there's a word in italics in almost every paragraph. Why? On top of it, the writing was just a little too amateur for me. The concept was good but that's it. I'll just leave it at that, my apologies.

This wasn’t anything too great. The writing was kind of tough to follow and a little awkward at times. Chelsea was very naive and just annoying? The start of the book was promising, but the rest fell by the wayside and it was hard to complete this book. Perhaps it would be helped by another round of edits, but I wasn’t too pleased with this book overall.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the digital review copy.
