The Warren Public Library is happy to have bestselling author Deborah Goodrich Royce return to discuss her latest novel, Reef Road.

In Reef Road, when a severed hand washes ashore in the wealthy enclave of Palm Beach, Florida, the lives of two women—a lonely writer obsessed with the unsolved murder of her mother’s best friend and a panicked wife whose husband has disappeared with their children—collide as the world shutters in the pandemic lockdown of 2020.

Ms. Royce, a former actress (All My Children, Beverly Hills 90210), has written a book that is receiving rave reviews. In a starred review, Kirkus says Reef Road is “a truly absorbing mystery by a writer at the top of her game”. Publisher’s Weekly adds it “is an expertly paced thrill ride”.

Don’t miss your chance to meet Deborah Goodrich Royce as she discusses her best book yet! For more information and to register, call the Civic Center Library at 586-751-5377 or register online.
