About the Author:
If you had asked 6 year old Ruthi what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would have told you a Rock Star. Those dreams faded to the background when she found out who the true Rock Stars are: Authors.
She has always had a fascination with books, losing herself completely in numerous books, enjoying the worlds she found that were so unlike her own. They were her escape, and eventually became her passion.
Her family has been putting up with her and her incoherent ramblings while she worked on her debut novel, Knotted Roots. Her five year old and Fiance have suffered through many “fend for yourself” nights, but somehow still manage to love her anyway.
She is now attending the Southern New Hampshire University, working on her Bachelor’s in Creative Writing/Fiction so that she can create her own worlds for others to fall in love with.
Okay, now that I’m done talking in the third person, let me just say that I love connecting with people via Facebook, Goodreads, my blog, etc. If you would like to chat, you can usually find me online at any given time. I also want to say thank you to each and every person who reads my book. It was a labor of love and I truly hope that you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

My 5 Star Review

Loved this story! I loved the makings of the different relationships each with its own tensions and stories and how the author brought it all together in an entertaining read. Filled with intrigue this story was believable, the characters sound and lovable. The plot well executed and every scene a building brick to the final outcome. I would love to read more about Roxie and Chase's growing relationship, with her explosive nature it can produce more drama and finally maybe, who the book! **smile**

We learned about Roxie a self-absorbed brat from New York City, send away to a farm in Podunk South Carolina to live with her grandmother for the summer holidays. Thinking the world owes her and therefor she can act the way she does without getting close or caring for the people who proved to be her real friends at the end. To say it plainly her attitude stinks from the moment you are introduced to her, but as the story progress she changed, as well. This change led to great changes in her life and outlook, and she became a respectfully character that I could love.

Chase...oh my word, adorable and extremely cute. I think I need more daughters, this one is a definite keeper **smile** I loved his strong personality, putting up with the city girl with patience that I would not have endured. Dealing with his own hurts he took a chance, and out of it a sweet romance was born.

Grandma Betty, a delightful and truly wise woman, caught this young lady's attention. Teaching her there was more to life than just what she sees. Loving and accepting Roxie for whom she is.

The other characters timing was well placed building the story with each scene making this an enjoyable read for young and old. Well crafted till the very end with a appropriate name for the book. Love the cover.
