Publisher 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...

Truly a must read-seriously!

This book is definitely a must read! I have to admit, I was skeptical at first upon reading the overview but was worth it. It is for sure a page turner, keep you up just to see what happens next kind of book. I enjoyed the honesty and dark humor in it. Only 4 stars because the ending was too cliche for me. That was the only time when I was able to predict what would happen next. Otherwise, just give it a shot. The first chapter will have you hooked!!!

I let myself read this too quickly the first time, I had to come back and read it again to fully live within the words as I read them. I couldn't put it down. I love when I'm able to learn something valuable from a book, and learning to love to the fullest every day is something I will carry on with me.

Kinda sounded like my life

This book brought back memories of things I have sadly had to face in my own life. It was a beautifully written book that sheds light onto a topic that so many people see in their lives like addictions. Being an ex military spouse I watched my own husband go down that rabbit hole with alcohol. We don’t always see the effects or want the help. But in the end we learn to love. While my ex didn’t die he destroyed a lot and over time we have built back a friendship and our kids have gotten help as well. My new spouse showed me the same it’s rather to have loved with your whole heart and lost then not to have ever loved at all. Thank you for this wonderful book. ❤️
