Ruth Roth Series Book 2
Ruth Roth is a straight shooter. Cupid? Not so much.
Smart-mouth Ruth is an inspirational humour columnist for a popular women’s magazine. Recently divorced from Mr Ticks-all-the-right-boxes, she’s found the love of her life. Ruth has decided she herself is her one and only.
And she’s in a comfy place. Why wouldn’t she be? No need to yell, ‘Put the bloody toilet seat down!’ No need to hear, ‘Pull my finger.’ No need to hoover toe-nail clippings off the carpet.
But then a silver-tongued Prince Charming fronts up in his shiny Merc and tickles her discarded, little-girl fantasies. He tells her she’s The One. ‘Our love is written in the stars,’ says he.
It must be a misprint!
A romance with this particular PC is not so PC. Still …
Ruth’s life plays out more like ancient myth than fairytale, and what hot-blooded woman can resist forbidden fruit?
Enter her cold-blooded mama squawking about the immorality of such a liaison, and Ruth recovers the impetus to live life in the fast lane again. She takes up with the hottie and takes on the harpy.
When tension mounts, though, even her man can’t protect her from the voices in her head. He’s hard-pressed to muzzle his own as spectacular twists in the not-so-fairy tale unearth more skeletons than in the local cemetery. It leaves Ruth feeling as if she’s dating her mother.
Yet, through a journey of self-discovery, she learns that while it appears Cupid can’t shoot for shit, he knows exactly what he’s doing.
All the same, who’s running this show?
Taking the advice she doles out to her readers is not that easy, and Ruth wonders if this love can survive, if it’s worth the trouble … or if she deserves it.
