The Dream Job – Kiersten Modglin ★★★★

Blurb; Autumn Sanderson goes by Lark now.
No one in her new life can know who she was.
No one from her old life can know where she is now.

Drowning in debt, Lark is desperate to land a job. When she finds herself at an interview for a mysterious company offering her an exorbitant salary, she jumps at the chance.

But things aren’t quite what they seem…

She soon learns of the company’s peculiar hiring process. Locked in a luxury cabin with five strangers who go only by their code names, Lark begins to question exactly what it is she signed up for.

The company, riddled with secrets and led by a cryptic boss known only as Mr. X, has strange rules and even stranger challenges for their candidates. After each day’s competition, the candidates gather around the dinner table to eat, drink, and spill their darkest secrets.

When Lark sees something she shouldn’t, she begins to ask questions, but soon gets a warning to stop. It’s obvious she’s in danger, but why? What does the company want? How much can she trust the others in the house? Trapped in the remote cabin with no technology allowed, Lark realizes she must take drastic measures to find out the truth.

The job of her dreams may cost her life…

My Review; This was recommend to be by Mel from Melanie’s Reads as I was in a little reading slump and I devoured it. Hooked. I could not guess what this dream job could be at all and the guesses I did make were so far from wrong. Gripping. Tense. Mysterious. Kept me guessing until the end. If I was Lark I wouldn’t have stuck around long enough to find out what the job was regardless of the very generous pay. A brilliant ending.

Short chapters and a new author for me to now devour. Very impressed. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
