When Vince Carter takes a shortcut to work, he notices a billboard that nearly sends him into an oncoming van.
The ad is for Dream Woods, New England's answer to Disney World. It closed decades ago, but now that it's back in business, Vince is eager to take his whole family, hoping the magic he remembers will save his failing marriage.
His wife, Audra, isn't so sure. She's heard the rumors of why the place closed. Murder. Sacrifice. Torture. But those are just urban legends. Surely there's nothing evil about a family tourist attraction.
The Carters are about to discover that the park's employees aren't concerned with their guests' enjoyment. They're interested in something else. Something much more sinister.

This funky little horror book is now one of my favorites. 'Scream Woods' begins in an unassuming way and I felt for all of the characters immediately (even though they aren't the *best* people ever). Without giving away any spoilers, I'll say that this book is a peek into what might be beneath beautiful things that we don't necessarily understand. Like Disney world - it's all magic, right? You can't see the strings that are operating the puppets and maybe the puppeteer is sinister. If you like horror/fantasy and a good solid fight until the end, then this book is for you. I absolutely loved it!!! Hempel is a rock solid narrator, as always.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Heartfelt, entertaining horror that calls back to the days of video store horror racks
