Description

In the tradition of Behind Closed Doors and The Girl on the Train comes an unsettling story about the lengths some are willing to go to hide the truth. Fans of domestic thrillers and psychological suspense will find Around The Bend addictive and unrelenting. 

Secrets can be deadly... 

If you were to pass me on the street, you probably wouldn't even look twice. I'm that normal. I'm just like you, only wealthier. I have it all. The kids, the family, the dog, a house on the hill. Hell--I'm so cliché, I even have a white picket fence. I guess you could say that I've dotted my I's and crossed my T's. But what I also have--what no one sees in yoga, or at Nieman Marcus, or during the dreadful Ladies Who Lunch charity events I attend (because only God knows why), and perhaps most importantly, in the school pick up line--are secrets.

Deep, dark, deadly secrets. 

We all keep secrets, don't we? We all have thoughts in our heads, things we do, things about us that if people knew, they'd be shocked...right? Well, what if one day we just decided to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak.

What if we decided to let the whole world in on our dirty little secrets? And what if along the way, as we were spilling those secrets, we realized that things aren't always what they seem and with that knowledge, it changed the whole story?

In this book, I'm laying it all out there. The unraveling of my life. My coming undone. What one might've seen had they been paying attention.

What I've found in life is people often believe lies before they'll believe the truth. Well, here it is, in a nutshell. I'll let you decide which is which...

If you enjoy dark reads, mystery and suspense, you'll love Britney King's bestselling psychological thrillers. More than 100K copies downloaded. Available in digital and print.

    I thought was very well written in a timely manner so as to keep me interested to turn page after page. I appreciated the very realistic way some situations were written, showing the author put time into finding out the real toll that addiction takes and how hard it is to quit. Looking forward to more from Britney King!

    Compelling and so real! I read it in an afternoon and evening. Couldn't put it down. The people were flesh and blood, with tears and joy and genuineness. The end was unexpected, but made the story more poignant.

    I’m into mystery/action/legal thrillers for the most part, and this was more of a drama/romance, but I really enjoyed it. I didn’t want to stop reading until I finished! Well written, and absorbing story. Toby2003
