A Reader's Opinion: RETURN TO RUBY'S RANCH by Rhonda Frankhouser


Emotionally charged! Rhonda Frankhouser really surprised me with her book RETURN TO RUBY'S RANCH! Rhonda Frankhouser is a new-to-me author and I truly didn't know what to expect! I chose to read it because of the cover; it felt so romantic. I'm totally surprised by the intensity of this suspense—it kept me sitting on the edge of my seat, had me turning pages after pages, and kept me reading late last night. Once you start reading it, you'll need to know more! Beware, this story is emotionally charged and but beautifully written! RETURN TO RUBY'S RANCH tells the story of families torn apart by lies and secrets! The heroine, Ruby Lattrell, inherited from her grandmother, Ruby's Ranch, where she wishes to make a new start. To do that, she needs answers to her mother’s, Katherine’s, disappearance. Welcoming her back to the ranch is her old friend Billy who secretly always loved her. Suddenly, in her grandmother’s room, Ruby discovers letters that reveals shocking secrets. Could it be true? At that moment I could not put it down! Can hope, trust, and forgiveness give a chance to these people so they can move on with their lives and forget their past mistakes? If you love stories about family relationship then you will be very pleased with RETURN TO RUBY'S RANCH! The author slowly built the suspense and blended her charming characters into a realistic family drama. I’m not disappointed! Eagerly awaiting her next book! Excellent blend of suspense and a dash of romance!
