I came across one word I wasn’t sure of last week (although in context it’s not too difficult to figure out) while reading The Christmas Ranch by RaeAnne Thayne:
rictus – ric·tus – a fixed grimace or grin.
By the time Monday morning rolled around, Hope was afraid her face had permanently frozen in that rictus of a fake smile.
