The Island Mother
by Jon Cohn

Genre: Young adult, thriller, horror, dark fantasy
Midsommar meets White Lotus in this supernatural thriller centered around an emotionally codependent woman on the run from her own life. She finds paradise, but it may come at a cost that she's unable to pay...

Leigh Ramos - a woman on the run from her ex-boyfriend and the dangerous life she left behind - is starting over in Hawaii with a new name and hopes to leave her past behind her.
She’s doing okay. A new job. Great friends. And a love interest in her new boss. But something seems off. The itch to run is back and the island seems to be rejecting her at every turn.

There’s a darkness looming on the island and it seems that the only thing that will save them is a sacrifice that will cost a little bit of something from everyone.

Will this new life be all that she’s ever wished for or is the island going to claim her too?

From author Jon Cohn, comes the next great horror book that blends danger, supernatural creatures, and the unknown into an unforgettable read.

Island Mother is the story of Leigh Ramos lives with Jesse, a trailer park meth king in a small area of Kentucky. He sends her to deliver meth to some clients with an empty gun for “protection.” Things go bad and she manages to escape, taking the meth, a small bag of money, and the van. Luckily, the bag held five thousand, so she pays for the farthest she can go by plane without going to a foreign country and ends up in Hawaii.

A page-turning horror novel where the heroine thought all she had to worry about was a drug-dealing boyfriend, but she finds that paradise wears a mask where nothing is what it seems, but hides terrifying gods and monsters that are frighteningly real, especially when they demand sacrifices to keep paradise beautiful and tourist-friendly.

I gave Island Mother 5 sheep.
