BLOG TOUR & REVIEW: The Replacement Wife by Britney King @EJBookPromos @britneyking_

The Replacement Wife
Britney King

You might remember me screaming about my love for King's The Social Affair... if not, then click HERE to read my 5 Star review!  King is BACK and in the same universe, she brings us The Replacement Wife.  You do not have to read the Social Affair to enjoy this read but it's nice to see a different perspective in this cultish, psychological thriller.

Publisher: Hot Banana Press
Publish Date:  May 3, 2018
269 pages
Standalone (but all her books cross over in some way)
Genre:  Psychological Thriller

Purchase here:  AMAZON | B&N | iBOOKS | KOBO | ALL STORES



From the bestselling author of The Social Affair comes a new riveting, powerful psychological thriller which offers a savage look into a utopian cultish society where beauty and perfection are valued at all costs.

Widower Tom Anderson is a savant with more affinity for numbers than people.  Problem is, one is a lonely number. Thankfully, he solved for X by finding the perfect woman. It wasn't easy. Tom is very specific. He has to be. 

Having checked 'find trophy wife' off his list, life was moving along swimmingly. Until that perfect woman let it slip—she has a past. One she kept hidden, almost perfectly.

Sure, she lied—she fudged the numbers. Most women do. 

Now, Tom has buyers’ remorse and according to cult rules only two options: get rid of her—or single-handedly erase her past. 

She's a liar. But she does keep house well. And she makes a mean lasagna. 

Decisions, decisions. 

My Review:

Britney King is one of my favorite people and she knows how to tell a story!  I'm so happy to be back in the same universe as The Social Affair as she brings us a new perspective in the church/cult community.  She's bringing all the Stepford Wives vibes to this follow-up and all of these characters are SO screwed up... and I LOVE it!

She references some characters from The Social Affair but this can absolutely be read as a standalone.  I love references to social media, in this case InstaLook, that shows how what is presented to the world is not always a true telling of what's happening behind the screen.  What you see is most definitely not what you get in this cultish church where appearances are EVERYTHING.

I love the direction this book went.  The ending was a bit out there but I always love that in a book.  I did feel it was slightly off kilter in how "easy" things turned out for a certain character and I NEED TO KNOW MORE... and I'm sure we will get it as I KNOW King has more coming our way.

Cult type books always fascinate me and to see how easy it is to get in but how hard it is to get out is a psychological ride I'm always fastening my seat belt for.  Take me away!  But please, please do NOT let me wake up to rejuvenation! 😉

Stick your thumb out, hitch hike your way into this seedy, "perfect" world where you need to watch everything that you do because trust me, SOMEONE IS ALWAYS WATCHING!


Britney King lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a pear tree.

When she's not wrangling the things mentioned above, she writes psychological, domestic and romantic thrillers set in suburbia.
Currently, she's 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. 
Without a doubt, connecting with readers is the best part of this gig.
