TLC Book Tour Feature – Reef Road by Deborah Goodrich Royce

When I say this cover threw into a panic more than once – that tiny spider on the cover. Almost every single time I’d see it and jump, then feel ridiculous because I remembered it was the cover art. I now would love to formally request that authors don’t allow that on future books.

Thanks to TLC Book Tours and to the author for the gifted copy

REEF ROAD – Deborah Goodrich Royce (Released January 10th, 2023)

I JUST finished up the book, so there will be a mini review added her later today (I know it wasn’t necessary for a feature tour but I felt compelled to and that way it can go back on the bookshelf and the spider will never be seen again). I will say that this was 3.5/5 stars for me!

Book Description:

A young woman’s life seems perfect until her family goes missing. A writer lives alone with her dog and collects arcane murder statistics. What each of them stands to lose as they sneak around the do-not-enter tape blocking Reef Road beach is exposed by the steady tightening of the cincture encircling them.

In a nod to the true crime that inspired it, Deborah Goodrich Royce’s Reef Road probes unhealed generational scars in a wrenching and original work of fiction. It is both stunning and sexy and, like a bystander surprised by a curtain left open, you won’t be able to look away.
