“DO YOU LOVE GRIPPING MYSTERIES?
Then discover Ruby Baker, a young woman with a talent for uncovering the truth.
Rita Stonehill runs in front of the horses on a sunny day at Brighton racecourse. Why did she kill herself and is there more to it than meets the eye?
Ruby Baker is shocked to witness this dramatic event. Rita’s brother thinks she was murdered, but there’s no evidence to suggest that.
It seems like an open-and-shut case of suicide, but as a sordid love triangle emerges, Ruby concludes that someone wanted Rita dead.
Ruby plunges into the glamorous world of horse racing to discover the truth. This is her most dangerous case yet and Rita’s death strikes very close to home for Ruby.
And then Ruby’s best friend Mary has her whole life turned upside down.”
Today, in my series showcasing books I have bought as a result of the persuasive powers of my fellow book bloggers, I have Before I Trust You by Daisy White, which I discovered by reading this review by the lovely Lorna on her blog, On The Shelf Reviews. Lorna’s blog is a fairly new discovery for me, but I quickly became a subscriber, as I find her reviews very detailed and honest, and we seem to have similar views on the books we have both read. Plus, she is an extremely supportive blogger who I love having in my circle.
The first thing that attracted me to this book was the cover image (I know, I know..never judge a book,,yada, yada, yada. I often do, sorry, not sorry. Covers matter, peeps!) I have a thing for carousels; I absolutely love them. I have to jump on as soon as I see one. I have a book plotted out which centres around one. Did I mention I love carousels? I also am a huge fan of books set in the world of racing. Once I had read the review, getting the book was a no-brainer. I haven’t read the first two Ruby Baker mysteries but Lorna said this can be read as a standalone, so I’m looking forward to getting to it soon.
Please do go and check out Lorna’s original review, and have a look around her wonderful blog while you are there. And if you are tempted by this book, as I was, you can get a copy here.
