Glad Tithings by R.E. Wood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just when you thought it was safe, RE Wood's Glad Tithings changes your mind about small town life. Rick and Jill Wilson are retiring while they are young enough to enjoy their time together. They've found a lovely house in the country, five hours away from the hustle and bustle of New York City. Except this rural setting isn't what it appears. Their first interaction with the locals don't go well at all. The law is sent after the couple. Then like lots of close knit communities, the church is the center of all activities. The couple is asked to attend service...or was that a command? The law thinks it's a great idea. Jill is mesmerized by the pastor. Their last weekend before the final move, the couple throws a party lasting into the wee hours of the night. On Sunday morning Jill freaks and insists they must go to church. Rick assures her that that's impossible since it's five hours away. Minutes later she doesn't remember the incident. Something is amiss. Hmmmmm Red flags abound. Perhaps the town of Parrish isn't the perfect spot to spend those golden years. Will the Wilsons figure it out and escape? Is it too late for Jill? Can Rick be spared? Be sure to read this spellbinding sci-fi book, but keep the lights on.
