Description - Bloodline by Jess Lourey

Perfect town. Perfect homes. Perfect families.

It's enough to drive some women mad... In a tale inspired by real events, pregnant journalist Joan Harken is cautiously excited to follow her fiance back to his Minnesota hometown. After spending a childhood on the move and chasing the screams and swirls of news-rich city life, she's eager to settle down. Lilydale's motto, 'Come Home Forever,' couldn't be more inviting. And yet, something is off in the picture-perfect village. The friendliness borders on intrusive. Joan can't shake the feeling that every move she makes is being tracked.

An archaic organisation still seems to hold the town in thrall. So does the sinister secret of a little boy who vanished decades ago. And unless Joan is imagining things, a frighteningly familiar figure from her past is on watch in the shadows. Her fiance tells her she's being paranoid. He might be right. Then again, she might have moved to the deadliest small town on earth.

'I should know better than to pick up a new Jess Lourey book, thinking I'll just peek at the first few pages and get then back to the book I was reading. Six hours later, it's three in the morning and I'm racing through the last few chapters, unable to sleep until I know how it all ends. Set in an idyllic small town rooted in family history and horrific secrets, Bloodline is Pleasantville meets Rosemary's Baby. A deeply unsettling, darkly unnerving, and utterly compelling novel, this book chilled me to the core, and I loved every bit of it.' - Jennifer Hillier, author of Little Secrets and the award-winning Jar of Hearts
