Thank you to Simon and Schuster Canada for the free ARC copy of this book! It was such a pleasure to read and review.

Mysterious, puzzling, chilling. Three words to describe this book. This book follows married couple Junior and Hen. They are a quiet married couple that live on a farm in a small town. They live an isolated life, where it is often just the two of them. They don’t visit others, others don’t visit them. They live a pretty secluded and isolated life often in close quarters to one another. They do everything together. Just the two of them. That is until one day a mysterious car with strange green headlights pulls up slowly into their driveway. Knowing they were not expecting anyone, as they never are, they are puzzled to who this person could be and what they could possibly want. And what is up with those strange green headlights anyways!?

Slowly a man exits the car, wearing a suit, and knocks on their front door. Upon answering it, the man introduces himself as Terrance. He states that Junior has been randomly accepted to travel far away from the farm and tells them that arrangements have already been made for Junior to make the move and go on this mysterious journey.

The couple invite Terrance into their home so he can explain more about what is going on. They have a lot of questions about what is going on and what purpose Junior being selected has on the whole process. As you read on, it gets stranger and stranger. Terrance creeped me out in this book. I was unsure what to think of him.

This book was a very great book. It was well written and I found myself turning the pages into the late hours of the night to try to uncover the mystery of what exactly was going on. Just when I thought I had it figured out it turns out I was wrong. It was written in a way that had me asking lots of questions, but slowly those questions are answered as you read on in the book.

I loved learning about Junior and Hen’s marriage and what works for them and what doesn’t. Secrets and mysteries are revealed. At there are a few surprised and reveals near the end and wow. What an ending it was! I definitely didn’t expect that! I loved it! Very well written and such a fabulous ending!

If you haven’t read this book yet be sure to get it. It’s a fabulous read that will have you guessing and wondering the whole way through!
