Several times a week, Charlotte Jones leaves suburbia behind and boards a chartered flight to parts unknown, where she wraps her hands around the necks of marks for just as long as she has to.



Then she goes back to domestic life with a paycheck, defense wounds, and the sense that she can handle anything.

Which is good, because being a wife, mother, and sociopath, with an insatiable taste for murder, gives the term work-life balance new meaning. When one life unexpectedly bleeds into the other, leading to a secret admirer and borderline insta-fame, Charlotte is forced to ask herself if she really can have it all.

Continue below for my review and information about Britney King.

My Review:


"There are three rules.  More than that, but three main ones: Stay focused.  Remain in character.  Don't get murdered."

This is my SEVENTH book by Britney and each one has been a binge read of fast paced twisty goodness that I can never seem to put down.  If I'm turning that first page, I know I better clear the next few hours because I'm not stopping.  Nope.  Not gonna.  This was EXACTLY what I needed.  After not finishing one book and being disappointed by my last read, I just knew Britney would bring me back where I needed to be.  And so it shall be done.  

This book starts off at a sprint and never stops.  Charlotte is a FUN (albeit psychopathic) character and I adore her!  I feel like her and Victoria Helen Stone's Jane Doe could be besties - you know, if these types of characters actually had friends.  😉  Charlotte is just bad ass.  King did an excellent job with her character.  I think I need more Charlotte. 

It's SO hard to really talk a lot about this book without giving anything away.  Charlotte has a very dangerous job while juggling home life with her boring husband and two daughters.  There are some issues and I have questions as this book speeds along with a quickness that I had to flip back pages a couple of times to see if I missed anything.  However, it's reading with an adrenaline rush!  At one point I thought, "Ok, break after this chapter to take care of x, y and z."  And then that chapter ends with a revelation I was NOT expecting and nope, I was done.  HAD. TO. FINISH.  I'm a mixture of WHY Charlotte to HELL YEAH at the ending but either way, swiped that last page with a huge smile on my face.

Suspend a bit of reality, strap yourself in and get ready for a wild ride.  Britney's done it again and I, for one, am utterly addicted to her.  OPEN READ REPEAT.

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.
