✱✱Book Review✱✱ Release Blast for PASSERBY by Britney King

 Release Date: July 22

"Roils with passion, rancor, and greed wrapped in Southern politesse... King's intricately woven mystery is sure to please fans of the thriller and suspense genre far and wide."


Jester Falls has always been an idyllic town. Perfect for a getaway. And what better place to stay than Magnolia House, the tourist trap's most popular bed and breakfast, run by the eccentric Channing family.

 Ruth Channing loves her family—at least what's left of it. She'd do anything to protect them.


But it isn't until her brother picks up a mysterious woman on the side of Route 78 that Ruth realizes how many definitions the word anything can have.


Everything about Ashley Parker rings false: her past, her profession, even her name. Most worryingly of all, her reluctance to leave. 

When guests start disappearing, it's clear there's more at stake than just the family business… a lot more.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Once again, Britney King lures me in and keeps me hanging on from the very first sentence. I'll admit that I was a bit confused while reading the first few chapters as I tried to figure out the who and what of the storyline. In most cases, that confusion would be enough to irritate me, but as always with this author, the writing is so thoroughly compelling that I wanted to know more about this place and these people. Even when I didn't completely understand where it was all going, I wanted to, and past experience with King told me we'd get there soon enough. And, of course, we did. When things start moving, they really move. I started this book curled up in my recliner. As the tension rose, so did I, and by three-quarters of the way through, I was sitting on the edge of my seat, telling the family to order pizza for dinner, and ignoring everything else until I made it to the last page. Yes, I'm purposely leaving out story details because I won't give away the book's secrets. Just keep in mind that even if you're a little confused in the beginning, keep pushing forward because it will all come together and make sense soon enough. This story completely messed with my mind and I wouldn't expect anything less from this author. Another twisted and twisty thriller that I won't soon forget. 

Meet Britney King

Hello. I’m Britney. 

 I live in Austin, Texas with my husband, children, a dog named Gatsby, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a pear tree.

 When I’m not wrangling the things mentioned above, I write psychological, domestic, and romantic thrillers set in suburbia.

Currently, I’m writing three series and several standalone novels.


The Bedrock Series features an unlikely heroine who should have known better. Turns out, she didn’t. Thus she finds herself tangled in a messy, dangerous, forbidden love story and face-to-face with a madman hell-bent on revenge. The series has been compared to Fatal Attraction, Single White Female, and Basic Instinct.


The Water Series follows the shady love story of an unconventional married couple—he’s an assassin—she kills for fun. It has been compared to a crazier book version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Also, Dexter.


Around The Bend is a heart-pounding standalone, which traces the journey of a well-to-do suburban housewife, and her life as it unravels, thanks to the secrets she keeps. If she were the only one with things she wanted to keep hidden, then maybe it wouldn’t have turned out so bad. But she wasn’t.


The With You Series at its core is a deep love story about unlikely friends who travel the world; trying to find themselves, together and apart. Packed with drama and adventure along with a heavy dose of suspense, it has been compared to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Love, Rosie.


The Social Affair is an intense standalone about a timeless couple who find themselves with a secret admirer they hadn’t bargained for. For fans of the anti-heroine and stories told in unorthodox ways, the novel explores what can happen when privacy is traded for convenience. It is reminiscent of films such as One Hour Photo and Play Misty For Me. Classics. 🙂


Without a doubt, connecting with readers is the best part of this gig. If you’d like to connect, shoot me an email. You can also find me on FacebookInstagram, and occasionally on Twitter.
