With taut, riveting prose, R.K. Avery introduces readers to Bea Miller, a penniless widow and mother of four boys. Together, they eke out a meager existence in the rural community of Bunting Valley, North Dakota. It is a scenic and picturesque town where children play in the streets, families leave their doors unlocked, neighbors know each other, and nothing dreadful ever happens.
That idyllic life shatters, however, when beautiful, blue-eyed, three-year-old Maggie Taylor vanishes, launching the Bunting Valley Police Department into a kidnapping investigation that uncovers unthinkable crimes spanning a shocking number of years. Everything the residents of Bunting Valley thought they knew about the town they loved threatens to come crashing down—and that is only the beginning.
Avery’s mesmerizing novel includes Bea Miller’s handwritten journals, taking the reader on a journey into the mind of a woman who wishes and dreams—and then makes her own wishes come true simply by taking what she wants from others.
“R.K. Avery is one of those rare talents who brings an original voice all her own to every page,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “Readers will revel in the suspense and intrigue of Avery’s page-turner plot—but more importantly, they will identify with the characters who seem less like figments of a talented writer’s imagination and more like people we ourselves know. Be Careful What You Wish For is a fine debut work and the first step in what I’m sure will be a great career for R.K. Avery.”
Be Careful What You Wish For is now available both in print, and as an eBook, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and wherever fine books are sold.
