Review by By Gretchen HoffmanRedheaded Ruby Taylor is back with more adventures in book two of the Ruby Taylor Mystery series. This book is just as entertaining and hilarious as book one. Rubys crazy, stubborn wit makes this story as great and intriguing as Ms. Dunns awesome title. Rubys education (a masters degree in literature) finally gets put to good use. She gets hired to teach at the local university when one of the professors dies. But as Ruby begins to look into the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death, the more suspicious things appear. If that wasnt enough, Ruby has to deal with family issues that inexplicably pop up. Add a dash of romance (or lack thereof), her new faith, a piping hot mocha, and youve got Rubys quirky life. Ruby gets herself into even more crazy situations in this novel. Its fun, fast-paced, and an upbeat read. My kudos to Ms. Dunn. Highly recommended!
In Sassy Cinderella, the 2nd book in the Ruby Taylor Mystery series, we find Ruby teaching at a local college due to the recent death of a professor. There are questions surrounding his death, whether it was a suicide or not, and why would he kill himself. Meanwhile, Ruby also has to deal with her long lost brother reappearing and disappearing in her house, affecting her relationship with her mother. On top of that, her relationship with Wesley is getting complicated, with him being a police officer and continually catching Ruby in awkward positions. I really admired Ruby in this story. For example when she went into the professor's study, she wasn't scared or nervous or freaked out. If I had known there had once been a dead body in the room i was in, I'd run out immediately. Ruby, on the other hand, examines the fan the body was hanging from!I also liked Ruby's reactions to Wesley. Guys are absolutely clueless when it comes to women and Wesley fits the profile. He's such a typical guy to be with one girl and then call another. And I still cannot figure out why guys will not tell a girl they are dating someone and they they show off the new girl in front of the old girl and of course the new girl is always better looking and makes the old girl feel bad about herself. Luckily Ruby doesn't dwell too much on this, even though she feels down, it doesn't consume her. She has a lot of guts to put up not only with this but everything else in her life. This was a great book, recommended for anyone who likes strong females with a touch of mystery.
