Royce has done a sterling job of incorporating all the things our mothers warned us about...Which is where the title of the book comes in. Don’t think you know who’s at the door, what’s in the envelope, or who’s been sleeping with whom until all the players have been accounted for.”

  • Sherri Daley, BookTrib
Royce, an actress and a story editor for Miramax, imbues her debut novel with plenty of drama, suspense, and sharp observations. (…) A compelling, well-written thriller with an effective, twisty plot.”

  • Kirkus Reviews
…Royce draws you into her plot via her dazzling treatment of this setting, and other equally well-drawn locales, including disco-era suburban Detroit, which figures heavily in the plot as well. This novel, which is Royce’s first, features equally three-dimensional characters and plot twists that are engaging and original as well. Once you’ve enjoyed Finding Mrs. Ford, you’ll find yourself expecting more great things upcoming from this author, as am I.”

  • Forbes
Deborah Goodrich Royce’s gripping and relatable literary suspense novel Finding Mrs. Ford unravels the decades-old secret behind an otherwise perfect life. (…) The novel’s payoff is a thrilling twist that comes late in the book. As Susan accepts that the truth will cost her everything she’s known, her memories of 1979 become more vibrant, violent, and graphic. The real thrill of Finding Mrs. Ford comes from reconciling the person Susan says she is with the girl she used to be.”  

  • Foreword Reviews
Something about the flashbacks—from staid, starchy Watch Hill, R.I., in 2014, to big, bad Detroit in 1979—made it feel sexy and a little dangerous. (…) the story is a fun one, with a nifty twist midway.”

  • The New York Times Book Review
An impressively original, immediately engaging and thoroughly entertaining novel by an author with a distinctive narrative storytelling style, Finding Mrs. Ford by Deborah Goodrich Royce is unequivocally and unreservedly recommended.”
