Author: Kari Trumbo
Genre: Historical Christian Romance
Release Date: Jan 3, 2017
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?
I enjoy “second chance” stories. To see how a character discovers that no matter how terrible or shady their past might be, God can still restore what “the locusts” had taken. A Ruby Glows is that kind of story. It reminded me a bit about an Old Testiment story about a young man thrown into prison for doing nothing other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. That’s was the case for Ruby, but instead of seeing things through God’s eyes, she only say the pain and shame. Shame that wasn’t even her’s to bear. Thank goodness a handsome wanderer opened her eyes, and her heart, to whole new world of possibilities.
I want to thank CelebrateLit and Kari Trumbo for offing the opportunity to read this touching story.

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
