The whole time I was reading this I kept thinking the plot was like a creepy Jordan Peele movie. 

Joan, a reporter, and her boyfriend Deck move to his idyllic hometown after Joan was mugged. Deck is positive that life in a mall town will be the perfect place to raise  the baby they are expecting. Joan agrees to go but soon discovers the town of Lilydale is not as perfect as it seems. 

This has a very creepy thriller vibe. Sort of a horror movie vibe without the gore. The author does a wonderful job slowly ratcheting up the tension as Joan becomes increasingly paranoid. It’s a great mix of suspense and chills.
