This dark thriller is based on a true event complete with small town secrets…occult rituals…the disappearance of a child and a community fueled cover-up. The reader will learn the dark secret of a child gone missing and some very weird undercurrents that are everyday life in this small American town of Lilydale, Minnesota. The further you read, the darker the twists. The neighborhood is tight knit and Joan is not quite comfortable with events that play out. In fact, as a reporter, she finds a dark and sinister history that threatens her and her child leaving her to wonder who she can trust. ( )

Will keep you reading

Warning you will find it very hard to put this down so don't start unless you have time or you will be up late. Like others have said it's very reminiscent of Rosemary's baby and the Stepford wives. Loved the story and this is the second book I have read from this author. Will definitely read more. ( )

I liked this audiobook but I didn't love it. I downloaded this book as a Kindle First Reads pick and decided to add the audio on for just a couple of bucks. The book sounded rather promising and it seemed to everywhere online so I thought it would be a safe bet. I found it to be a rather quick listen and the story did hold my attention quite well.

Joan is a reporter hoping to advance her career. She is expecting a child with her boyfriend, Deck. After she is mugged in the city, they decide to move to Deck's hometown of Lilydale. When they arrive, she learns that Deck has told everyone that they are married. This story is set in the 1960s but the residents of Lilydale are more opinionated and controlling than you would expect in any era. Things start getting creepy quite quickly and Joan feels like she is constantly being watched by everyone living in the town. A boy that disappeared from the town 20 years earlier and it appears that he might be back. Joan has just started writing for the local newspaper and is thrilled to get the story. As she looks into the events in the town, she quickly realized that the issues in town might be bigger than she ever imagined.

I can't say that I really liked many of the characters in this book. Joan did some things, especially at the beginning of the book, that made her very difficult to fully embrace. The story is told from Joan's point of view but I wasn't sure if I should completely believe everything we learned from her. The only character that I completely liked and trusted didn't show up until later in the book and played a rather small role. I think that the story would have been much more powerful if I liked Joan enough to actually care what happened to her.

Whitney Dykhouse did a fabulous job with the narration. I thought that her voice worked perfectly for this story. She did a great job with all of the character voices and I liked the fact that she was able to add emotion into the reading. I thought that her voice was very pleasant and easy to listen to for hours at a time. I believe that her narration added to my enjoyment of the story.

I think that a lot of readers might enjoy this one more than I did. I liked the story even though I did have a few issues with it. I wouldn't hesitate to try other books by Jess Lourey in the future. ( )

Bloodline by Jess Lourey is one of the creepiest books I have read in a very long time and I loved every word of it. Rosemary’s Baby is a prime example of what I consider creepy. Joan Harken, a journalist, leaves the big city for a move with her boyfriend to his Minnesota childhood home in the country. Lilydale is like a picture postcard and is everyone’s dream of life in a small town. But not all is as it seems and Joan soon notices that someone is always watching her. The friendly neighbours are overly-friendly and claustrophobia creeps into Joan’s life. There is something definitely wrong with this place and the journalist in her wants to find out what is going on. Why is everyone so interested in her? I cannot provide more information without spoiling the book for those who have not yet read Bloodline. The fact that this novel is based on real events makes the reader even more invested in the story. And you will not believe the conclusion! Highly recommended for any mystery reader who doesn’t mind a little fear and tension. Thank you to Thomas & Mercer, NetGalley and the author for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

A young couple move to the small town of Lilydale after the pregnant girlfriend is brutally attacked. Small town living close to his parent's sounds like the best option to flee the big city life and for a fresh, new start...
But life in Lilydale is not all it's cracked up to be, everybody spies on everybody, and a small tight knit group called the Mothers and Fathers try to make sure that everybody in the group is compliant, including her since she is in a relationship with their leader/mayor's son. This book soon takes a very sinister twist as everybody tries to convince her she's crazy and imagining things.
Once the reader found out what was really going on, it was a big, disgusting surprise and I could not put this book down. This was another very suspenseful book from NetGalley and the publisher who allowed me to read this book for an honest review. Thank you! ( )
