You want an unsettling but fun book from a housewife’s perspective. You like the trope where the main character is right but everyone refuse to believe them. You like a happy and satisfying horror ending. You like character driven books.
Don’t pick this up if
You don’t want something slow. You don’t like a white saviour plot point. You hate it when people devalue the main character. You don’t like long and explicit books.

I get asked how I read so many books. This is how I do it:
Kindle Unlimited (definitely worth it for romance readers)
Audible (2 free audiobooks for your first month); I have the Audible Premium Plus with 2 credits a month
Prime membership allows me to get new books at my doorstep fast (get the first month free). I have Prime Student which comes with a 6 month free trial.
I also had Audible Escape but it got cancelled 😦
But Audible Plus is supposed to have a lot of books across all genres
