The story wasn't too fast or slow and it kept my interest the entire time. I read it in five hours.
If you like clean historical Western romances then this is the book for you.
This paragraph is from part of Kari's Trumbo's guest post on my blog ( I know if you follow my blog, you will get the whole post, but for my review on Amazon and Goodreads, I am including this.)
"Cutter’s Creek is a series written by myself and three other Christian authors. Though there are numbers on each book, you don’t have to read them in order to get into the series, in fact, since each author writes in their own time period it might be somewhat confusing. Especially if you like a consecutive story. However, they are all stand-alone books and can be read in any order. If you like to read them in date order, you’ll want to read Kit Morgan’s books first, then Vivi Holt, Annie Boone, and finally mine, that will put them roughly in time order." I have read the first three of Kit Morgan's and I will finish the series because that is how I am.
This book is a western love story but first Ruby must believe that she can trust Beau with her past secrets. I really like the name Beau for the hero in this story because he wants to be Ruby's beau( a play on words, I think it fits well.) This book mentions alcohol addiction and spousal abuse, not really in a lot of details but it is there!
There is another story developing within this story about a missing wife, that is left with a cliff hanger but I think we get the rest of that story in book 19.
I think Beau is my favorite character in this story because he searches for the truth and the character I hate is Ruby's father ( hey, it is fiction so I can hate someone right).
This book leaves you feeling that love can come after a bad childhood!
I am giving "A Ruby Grows" by Kari Trumbo 4 stars.
I was given a complimentary copy by Celebrate Lit and the author. These opinions are my own.
Ruby’s character is layered, her story complex, though some of her reactions seemed a little off to me. Beau is a typical Western hero, and I enjoyed getting to know him and Ruby better after first reading Dreams in Deadwood, the book that essentially comes next.
On that note, it was really interesting to me to go back and read A Ruby Glows after first Dreams in Deadwood. So in many ways it felt like a prequel to me, which I guess it really is. Especially since Dreams in Deadwood starts a spin-off series of sorts from A Ruby Glows. A lot that didn’t make sense to me in Dreams fell into place as I was reading Ruby and that feeling of “everyone knows everyone but i don’t” reduced considerably. So… that said … it would be a good idea to read this book before you start Trumbo’s new series!
Bottom Line: If you’re a fan of western romance, you’ll want to check out the Cutter’s Creek books by Kari Trumbo and the other contributing authors. A cast of colorful characters rounds out an emotional plot and a sweet story. The romance progresses naturally, and Beau’s heart of gold where Ruby is concerned is swoonworthy. A nice pick for an evening/weekend in!
(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book)
I enjoyed reading the progression of Ruby and Beau's relationship. It wasn't too fast like you see in some love stories, nor did it take up every page of the book. I want my romantic storylines to have some depth to them, not all lovey dovey, and this book did a great job in providing depth with the addition of other characters and some small subplots. I appreciated Beau's cautiousness when it came to Ruby too. He didn't push her, instead allowed her time and space and seemed to care for her well being. Beau is definitely a little swoon-worthy ;)
This is a sweet, clean read. Although considered a historical story, I think even those people who do not traditionally like historical fiction will like it. The historic setting is really more of a backdrop in this story, not the center stage. It could just be the book that makes you second guess why you haven't read historical fiction before!
