The Ruth Valley Missing by Amber West, Book Review
Jameson Quinn is sick of trying to find herself in the big city. After a gallery opening ends in a trip to the ER and an argument with her self-involved boyfriend, she decides to take off for the peace and quiet of a small town — Ruth Valley.
The small town has everything Brooklyn lacked: simple people, peaceful surroundings, and a feeling of safety. Jameson even finds the perfect house to rent from the town’s most eligible bachelor, Sheriff Jack. Life is finally headed in a promising direction.
But something isn't right. A young man is mysteriously injured, then disappears — and Jameson finds he isn't the only person to suddenly vanish. The suspicious behavior of an abrasive nun and a creepy priest set her off on an investigation of what's really happening. Will she figure out the secrets of Ruth Valley before she's the next to go missing?
I literally read this book in one sitting. ONE. I couldn't put it down and I kept thinking just one more chapter, but it wasn't enough! I was quickly caught up in Jameson's story and the more I read, the more I wanted to know. The underlying mystery kept me on my toes until the very end! The book is well written and flows nicely and I couldn't get enough of it! The characters were like people you would meet in any town, anywhere. They became real to me as did the town. I wasn't expecting to stay up until after 1am to finish it, but it was a page turner! A great blend of mystery, small town charm and romance, The Ruth Valley Missing is a book you don't want to miss! A new fan of Amber West, I look forward to reading more from her soon!
