Passerby: A Psychological Thriller by Britney King

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is not a job for an immature…

The Channing family owns an enchanting Magnolia House in Jester Falls. Like any other family, the difference and rivalry between the siblings are common, but nevertheless, they all are guided by love for each other… a truth or a myth? That’s for you to find out.

A massive rip in the family dynamic take the place when one of her brothers brings a mysterious woman home. While everyone in town is captivated by a “fresh blood” in their small part of the woods, Ruth sees nothing but trouble coming from a newcomer.

I can’t find words to describe the novel… but one very good piece of advice – do not read this before bed – guaranteed nightmares. Wow, I do not even know where to start. First, Ruth is a badass girl who keeps her family and business in check. Loved her character – strong and fair with no room for any nonsense. Her brothers – one big bag of surprises. The novel is full of new revelations in each chapter. It is easy to predict that a newcomer stirs up a lot of drama between the siblings, causing a very unfortunate set of events. I loved the idea of the book, and the last few plot twists were entertaining, however, I feel the novel lucked the suspense. Nevertheless, I’ve enjoyed the read and will continue to look forward to the author’s new books. Thank you NetGalley and Hot Banana Press Publisher for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
