“Warning to sensitive readers: this book is not for the faint of heart. Abandon hope, all ye who enter here thinking this is a safe little side trip into the shadows…these shadows have teeth, and think you would taste good with ketchup.

This book blew my mind. It was fantastic. One part Misery, one part Sharp Objects, another part Peyton Place, with a dash of Steel Magnolias and the Stepford Wives thrown in for good measure. This book was both bone-chilling and impossible to put down.

The last thing that Claire wants to do is to go back to her mother’s home, despite the desperate financial situation that has driven her and her husband, Jason, to this point. Claire is pregnant, and Jason has just been diagnosed with epilepsy, which has effectively killed his career as a pilot. The job that he is offered (thanks to Prissy, Claire’s mom) seems like a godsend. Just a few months, he tells her. Hold out for just a few months and we will be able to move. Claire reluctantly agrees, but keeps her guard up around her mother. Prissy puts on a good show for Jason, and soon has him convinced that Claire has over exaggerated and is being unduly harsh to her mother.

Boy, is he in for a shock.

When Claire reveals just the tip of the iceberg that is Prissy’s crazy, Jason is thrown for a loop. The fact that Claire’s disabled father is held hostage in the house is disturbing, but when Claire is injured herself Prissy insists on taking charge of her care. After all, she is a nurse…. As I said, Jason and Claire only know the tip of the iceberg. When Claire’s repressed memories begin to surface, they leave her wondering just what is real and what is her imagination. This goes far beyond rooms piled with useless junk, and the undying need to mind everyone else’s business. When Prissy’s need for control really decides to kick up its skirts and dance, everyone suffers.

I loved this book. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any wackier, any darker, or any more screwed up, I was granted a peek into a level of nuts I never have seen before. Calling this a psychological thriller is like calling a hydrogen bomb a bottle rocket! I could rave on about it for another few paragraphs, but all I can really say about it is GO READ IT! It’s so worth it!”
