Ruby starts her day by not knowing how she woke up at Noel’s house, and covered is purple sticky stuff. (This is the making of a good story!) Ruby is a lawyer assigned to her first case, Estelle, a sweet grandmother who is charged with a list of crimes that she looks too innocent to have committed.
While trying to acquit Estelle of these charges, you smell a conspiracy. As Ruby tries to unravel this mystery/conspiracy, she lands herself in some bizarre situations that only Ruby can get out of! She’s so endearing that sometimes you can’t help but laugh at some of the antics and situations, but naive enough that you want to sit her down and have a conversation with her about what it’s like to be an adult.
There are references to “The Wizard of Oz” that makes this story such a fun read. There are some modern references as well… Ruby’s boss’s name is Destinee Childs. (Need I say more?!) While you will love the main character, let’s not forget the supporting cast! Each one was so well written that you have love/hate relationships with them. They’re witty, intelligent, and extremely well written.
This book has everything… murder, mystery, humor, conspiracy, a sex tape… what’s not to love?!
