The Crooked Roads through Cedar Grove: A Novel
Re-Released April 14, 2017
A suspenseful, psychological thriller revolving around various characters who struggle with their own personal conflicts. The outcome of their decisions leads each one down a figurative "crooked road" into darkness and despair. But who will come out on the other side without consequence or harm?
There's an unsettling anomaly dwelling in the picturesque New England town of Cedar Grove. Kathleen, a seventeen-year-old newcomer to the town, is harassed and bullied by her classmates. Alex and Bethany purchase a beautiful home for well-below its value, only to discover that the reduced price offers them more than they bargained for. Brian develops an infatuation with a girl he finds online, but she's not who he expects. There is a sinister presence silently twisting their fates together on the crooked roads through Cedar Grove.
"It's a useful habit to never believe more than half of what people tell you, and not to concern yourself with the rest. Rather keep your mind free and your path your own." ---Halldór Laxness

"Rob Watts' Charms is a searing look at relationships going wrong. It's the literary screech of brakes that makes you turn, knowing you may witness an accident you may not be able to unsee." — Manhattan Book Review
