Ruby Lake

Author: Sherrill Willis
Rating: 3.5/5
Genre: Romance, chick lit, humour

When I saw Ruby Lake with a cozy cottage as cover page photo I knew this would be one of those getting out of fast pace city life and understanding the importance of things more than work story. And it was. Big City girl come to small isolated region dejected and cynical and is shocked by the culture change. She found the love she was searching for all her life and there were rainbows and butterflies.....not. This book doesn't get over with the girl rushing into the arms of the small town good guy and kissing him with gorgeous music playing in the background. It's about what happens after that. All the ups and downs. All the sweet moments and fights. And of course the dreaded "EX". The book is surprisingly not cliche while being a cliche.

We all are cynical at times. People are rude and people are mean. They judge and they will love nothing more than see you fail. The saddest part is, it is true. But for the sake of sanity we need books like Ruby Lake to keep the candle of home glowing. So get in your blankie, grab hot chocolate and read this damn book and everything would be better.
