Title: The Social Affair
Author: Britney King
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: January 18, 2018
Review: This book is full of dysfunctional characters. Izzy Lewis is obsessed with social media, where she stalks people she admires. She buys clothes they wear, tries fashion trends they suggest, etc.
Grant and Josie Dunn look like the perfect couple from the outside, but in private things are not so wonderful. They are members of a "church" which is more cult--there are some seriously messed rules the members have to agree to follow, and members are "mentored" (more like monitored) by other members.
When Izzy meets the Dunns and begins to stalk them, she is drawn in by Josie's social media posts about their happy life and happy family. The farther she delves into their life, the darker the novel becomes.
The ending was a TOTAL surprise to me. It left me with a few unanswered questions, but nothing that distracted from my enjoyment of the story.
If you enjoy a good psychological thriller, be sure to add this to your reading list for this year!!
Rating: Four stars
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.
