#BLOGTOUR | Finding Ruby – J.A. Higgins @JAHiggins-Author @rararesources @gilbster1000 #amreading #bookreview

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Finding Ruby by J.A. Higgins. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the tour invite. Read on for more info and my review.

On Halloween night thirteen year old Ruby disappears in the company of a masked figure. She is never seen again. The only witness is Nell Montague who is just seven years old.

Twenty three years later, Nell is trapped in an abusive relationship and still suffering from vivid nightmares of what she saw. When tragedy strikes she escapes and attempts to put her past behind her.

Then thirteen year old Emily disappears.

Haunted by increasingly disturbing visions and helped by a reluctant psychic, Nell must unravel the mystery of what really happened that night because to save Emily she must first find Ruby. But to do so she will question everything she thought she knew about her own childhood and soon discovers that nightmares don’t always end when you wake up.

Finding Ruby by J.A. Higgins isn’t my first read from this author, so I was excited to read another book by her.

The abusive relationship in the beginning of this book can be a bit triggering. However, the author handled it well, and I think it was an unfortunately realistic portrayal of something very real.

I enjoyed the mystery aspect of this novel. There was an overall tone of shrouded mystery, which made this very compelling to read. The paranormal aspects added a bit more intrigue as well.

Nell is a great character. What she goes through is hard to read but I really enjoyed her growth throughout the novel.

Overall, this was a good read. A well thought out mystery, with intriguing paranormal elements and deep characters. I’d recommend giving it a shot!
