About KILLING RUBY ROSE: In sunny southern California, Ruby Rose is known for her killer looks and her killer SAT scores. But ever since her dad, an LAPD SWAT sergeant, died six months ago, she’s also got a few killer secrets.
To cope with her father’s death, Ruby has been trying to stay focused on school (the top spot in her class is on the line) and spending time with friends (her Jimmy Choos and Mahnolo Blahniks are nothing if not loyal), but after months of therapy and more than a few months of pathetic parenting by her mom, District Attorney Jane Rose, Ruby decides to pick up where her dad left off and starts going after the bad guys herself.
But when Ruby ends up killing a murderer in defense of another, she discovers that she’s gone from being the huntress to the hunted. There’s a sick mastermind at play, and he has Ruby in his sights. Ruby must discover who’s using her to implement twisted justice before she ends up changing Valentino red for prison orange.
With a gun named Smith, a talent for martial arts, and a boyfriend with eyes to die for, Ruby is ready to face the worst. And if a girl’s forced to kill, won’t the guilt sit more easily in a pair of Prada peep-toe pumps?
Seventeen-year-old Ruby Rose is a baddass main character. She is mourning the death of her father, an LAPD SWAT sergeant, by trying to hunt down five bad guys on his To-Do List. Unfortunately, she's not the only one doing the stalking...
KILLING RUBY ROSE is an exciting, action-packed thriller. Ruby has personality quirks that may turn some readers off, but I found them to be unique. Liam, the love interest, is smokin' hot and fun to read. The twist at the end was unexpected, and leads nicely into a sequel without leaving readers hanging.
