Dr. Ruby Roy is a twenty-nine-year-old, goofy, warm, and absent-minded professor in her third year at Baron University, located a few miles from the Falls. A plus-size woman of mixed Indian and Canadian roots, cursed with an overactive imagination stemming from watching too many Bollywood and Disney films, Ruby is struggling to make her mark and stay out of trouble. It doesn't help matters that she keeps stumbling into a series of embarrassing incidents, even as she desperately tries to keep her superiors in the College happy. Unfortunately for Ruby, things take a turn for the worse when she discovers her Chair's dead body in his office. But who could have killed him? And why? Suddenly all the Poirot, Marple, Sherlock Holmes, and Father Brown books she loves reading seem to have come to life as she finds herself in the middle of a real-life murder mystery. And with the murderer on the loose, no one is safe. With the help of her husband, Cleo, her very own Watson, Ruby tries to solve the mystery before she is next on the killer's list!
Reviewer: Anna Bottoms
I liked the humor in the story, and the quirkiness of the main character was engaging. Her husband Cleo was a sweet addition, full of support and understanding of his wife’s foibles.
I had a hard time getting into the flow as Ruby was frequently too much in her head which went on for pages between the action. The mystery was interesting, and I would give the author another try.
I was given a courtesy copy by the author through Interviews and Reviews. This is my honest opinion.
