"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.

I didn’t see that coming
Britney’s books are always great for a quick read. This one started out a little slower than most but it definitely didn’t disappoint. The story is about a bed-and-breakfast owner who thinks her brother‘s new girlfriend is hiding something. What’s the real story? They were surprises until the very end.
Passerby, Britney King never disappoints
She always weaves a very intricate web of a story, captivates the reader and takes them on a mind blowing journey and sometimes are the end you are not sure whether there is an opening to another dimension of this story.
Well, well, well, Britney King definitely stumped me. My mind immediately started trying to figure the story out as soon as I started reading. The more I read the more I thought I had figured out. I was so enthralled in this small town suspense story that I read it all in one sitting. Ruth Channing is running her families bed and breakfast and has been since they passed. Her younger brother brings a new girlfriend home with him and crazy things start happening. I really thought I had it all figured out at one point and then BAM! I was totally thrown for a loo and had to laugh to myself. Not because it was funny but because the author pulled one over on me. I love stories like this and I definitely recommend it to people like me, who love a good mystery and love trying to figure it out before they reach the end.
