In the tradition of Behind Closed Doors and The Girl on the Train comes an unsettling story about the lengths some are willing to go to hide the truth. Fans of domestic thrillers and psychological suspense will find Around The Bend addictive and unrelenting.

Hell--I'm so cliché, I even have a white picket fence. I guess you could say that I've dotted my I's and crossed my T's. But what I also have--what no one sees in yoga, or at Nieman Marcus, or during the dreadful Ladies Who Lunch charity events I attend (because only God knows why), and perhaps most importantly, in the school pick up line--are secrets.

Deep, dark, deadly secrets. 

We all keep secrets, don't we? We all have thoughts in our heads, things we do, things about us that if people knew, they'd be shocked...right? Well, what if one day we just decided to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak.

What if we decided to let the whole world in on our dirty little secrets? And what if along the way, as we were spilling those secrets, we realized that things aren't always what they seem and with that knowledge, it changed the whole story?

In this book, I'm laying it all out there. The unraveling of my life. My coming undone. What one might've seen had they been paying attention.

What I've found in life is people often believe lies before they'll believe the truth. Well, here it is, in a nutshell. I'll let you decide which is which...
