Editorial Reviews

Publisher's Weekly
DECADES—"Will have three generations of American women reliving their love lives and recognizing ruefully and with wry affection just what changes have overtaken them. The characterizations are good and the period atmosphere absolutely perfect — the songs we sang, the clothes we wore, the way we made love.” —Publisher’s Weekly
New Woman Magazine - Magazine Review
HUSBANDS AND LOVERS—“Harris relates the games of love and war in a fast-forward, high octane style, resurrecting the nervous Seventies through a welter of accurate detail, from the clothes and books and other cultural artifacts to the sexual mores of the period. A dead-on accurate social critic, Harris has captured the feel of being young and hungry and ambitious in New York. HUSBANDS AND LOVERS deserves a large audience."
Fort Lauderdale News Sun-Sentinel - Newspaper Review
LOVE AND MONEY—"Fast-paced, superior fiction. With a crisply precise and descriptive narrative style and an unerring ear for dialogue, Harris has written a terrifically satisfying 'good read.'" Fort Lauderdale News Sun-Sentinel

Meet the Author

Ruth Harris is a New York Times and Amazon bestselling author and a Romantic Times award winner for “best contemporary.” Ruth’s "emotional," "entertaining" fiction has topped Amazon’s Movers and Shakers list and her highly praised novels have sold millions of copies in hard cover, paperback and ebook editions, been translated into 19 languages, sold in 30 countries, and were prominent selections of leading book clubs including the Literary Guild and the Book Of The Month Club.

Ruth writes about strong, savvy women who struggle to succeed and, when sometimes they don’t get what they want, they find something even better along the way. Critics have compared Ruth to Nora Ephron and Joan Didion and called her books  "brilliant," “steamy,” "stylishly written," ”richly plotted,” “first-class entertainment” and “a sure thing.” 

With her husband, Michael, Ruth indulges her wild side and writes bestselling thrillers (HOOKED and BRAINWASHED, both available in Nook editions) with vivid characters, international backgrounds and compelling plots. Their thrillers have made numerous appearances in the top 3 of Kindle’s prestigious Movers & Shakers list;  in the Top 100 in the Kindle Store, #1 and #2 on two different Political thriller and Medical thriller bestseller lists.

Publisher’s Weekly called Ruth's and Michael's thrillers "Slick and sexy [with] all the sure elements of a big seller written by pros who know how to tell a story.” Readers have raved, calling their books “awesome,” “gripping,” “chilling,” “a must-read,” and “a real page-turner.”

    Great books

    Like golden oldies music, these books remind you what life was like, how innocent the world was, when we were young in the sixties. A great stroll down memory lane.
