Ruby's Misadventures with Reality by Samantha Bohrman

Book Blurb:

She's off to see the killer...

Lawyer Ruby O'Deare might not be living the American dream, but it feels like it every time she visits her small town megamall. The shoes! The lighting! Prince Charming spotted in the food court! It's a dream, right?

But all dreams must come to an end.

Ruby's does when she wakes up after a one-night stand with the town's sexy zoning commissioner, Noel West. Actually, that part is good. It's the expired Dollar Store condoms she finds that feel too real.

And then her favorite client Estelle turns up dead.

Ruby is determined to find out the truth behind the curtains of Ozcorp, the company that owns the heavenly megamall and has the most to gain from her client's death. She just hopes the zoning commissioner she might be falling for isn't caught up in the danger.

My Review:

Ruby's life is full of surprises and Samantha Bohram took me on a fast paced, entertaining adventure in Ruby's Misadventures With Reality.

From the start I liked that Ruby had real things happen to her...they were just more over the top and often a lot wilder than 'normal'!  I liked Ruby as a heroine...she was a fun character to read about and get to know.  Ruby did have her misadventures, but Samantha also weaves in serious issues and emotion that fit well with the plot.  I couldn't wait to turn the pages to see what would happen for Ruby next, whether it was her personal or professional life.  Ruby felt real, a little mixed up, and struggling to move on while at the same time coping as best as she can with what life is throwing at her.

Noel was an interesting hero and was a bit of a mystery for a while!  I was very intrigued to see what would happen between him and Ruby.

The unexpected and the unknown were part of the adventure of Ruby's Misadventures With Reality, and this was a fun book to read that made me laugh while wondering what I would do if I were Ruby.

I'd recommend Ruby's Misadventures With Reality to any romance reader looking for a very well paced, entertaining romance with some underlying mystery!

4/5 stars
