Join us for a virtual author visit with bestselling author, Vanessa Lillie. Vanessa is originally from Miami, Oklahoma, where she spent a lot of her childhood investigating local ghost stories at the public library. After college, she worked in Washington, DC, and later moved to Providence, Rhode Island, which she, her husband, and her dinosaur-aficionado son call home. A regular contributor to the Providence Journal, she enjoys organizing book events and literary happenings around town.
Vanessa will be discussing her new book, For the Best, a timely and provocative thriller that explores the depths of white female privilege as a woman suspected of murder takes an unusual approach to proving her innocence, revealing not only her demons, but the flaws in the system designed to protect someone like her. With taut and mesmerizing prose and a shocking final twist, Lillie creates a “gripping, thought-provoking thriller that weaves past trauma and present-day consequences” (Samantha M. Bailey) and provides “a fascinating look at the power of restorative justice” (Christina McDonald), solidifying Lillie’s place as “a true rising star in crime fiction” (Alex Segura).
“Smoothly plotted… Lillie keeps the suspense high up to the shocking ending. Readers will root for troubled Jules every step of the way.”
