Ruby’s heart froze as she threw her dead husband over the cliff. 
When Beau walks into her life, one glance has her running from her past. He couldn’t want someone like her. It should be easy to avoid his quiet charm.If he can convince her she’s a prize, not prey, he might have a chance. Beau’s captivated when Ruby scrambles from him whenever he gets too close. Her sweetness is an allure he can’t fight.
Can Beau convince Ruby she is beloved? 

My Review:

I picked this book because I like the title. I have to say, I liked Ruby. In the town of Cutter Creek things are happening, among them Beau and Ruby's romance. Ruby has a past she is dealing with, running from, hiding and more. Beau hasn't ever really fallen for anyone before, but Ruby has his full attention. Meanwhile, there is another good mystery occurring and let me just say that running from things doesn't usually get you far. I liked Lily, and Beau and Ruby. Ruby's story does tug at the heart. Ruby has to work her way through so much. Forgiveness and healing, her self-worth and self-esteem to name a few things. 

This is my first book by this author, it was a very fast read. My only aggravation was the ending arrived too soon! It wasn't a cliffhanger, but I still don't know how I got to the end that fast. A strong read with a good bit of emotional pull. 

5 Stars :)

Guest post from Kari Trumbo
Greetings! I hope this isn’t your first introduction to Cutter’s Creek, but if it is, let me explain a bit about it. 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.
The Cutter’s Creek series has been a huge blessing to me. I’ve gotten to write with some wonderful authors and learned so much about writing a series together. So, out of my Cutter’s Creek books, why did I choose Ruby over Lily, Ivy, or Carol…well, I hate to play favorites, but Ruby is my favorite. She’s quiet, and her strength is surprising. She has a big trial, and some hurt to work through, but when you find the right person to help you through it, that’s a gift more precious than anything.
I hope you love Ruby as much as I do. Blessings, Kari
