Overview

Killing Ruby Rose by Jessie Humphries

In sunny Southern California, seventeen-year-old Ruby Rose is known for her killer looks and her killer SAT scores. But ever since her dad, an LAPD SWAT sergeant, died, she’s also got a few killer secrets.

To cope, Ruby has been trying to stay focused on school (the top spot in her class is on the line) and spending time with friends (her Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahniks are nothing if not loyal). But after six months of therapy and pathetic parenting by her mom, the District Attorney, Ruby decides to pick up where her dad left off and starts going after the bad guys herself.

When Ruby ends up killing a murderer to save his intended victim, she discovers that she’s gone from being the huntress to the hunted. There’s a sick mastermind at play, and he has Ruby in his sights. Ruby must discover who’s using her to implement twisted justice before she ends up swapping Valentino red for prison orange.

With a gun named Smith, a talent for martial arts, and a boyfriend with eyes to die for, Ruby is ready to face the worst. And if a girl’s forced to kill, won’t the guilt sit more easily in a pair of Prada peep-toe pumps?

"With a fierce and witty heroine, this dark and twisty mystery is everything I love in a book. Killing Ruby Rose is an all-around thrilling debut that kept me riveted from beginning to end!" —Megan Miranda, author of Fracture, Hysteria, and Vengeance

Given To Me For An Honest Review Killing Ruby Rose (The Ruby Rose Series Book1) by Jessie Humphries will grab you from the beginning and have you turn page after  page after page.  It is about a high school girl who is avenging her father's death.  She becomes a teenage assassin and finds that the  people she is hunting for are now hunting for her.  This is a YA mystery thriller.  You'll find twists and turns as you read it.  It's a good  suspense book.  The end will give you a surprise twist.  I recommend this to all.  I look forward to more from Jessie Humphries and to  Book 2 of the series.

Seventeen-year-old Ruby Rose is a baddass main character. She is mourning the death of her father, an LAPD SWAT sergeant, by trying to hunt down five bad guys on his To-Do List. Unfortunately, she's not the only one doing the stalking... KILLING RUBY ROSE is an exciting, action-packed thriller. Ruby has personality quirks that may turn some readers off, but I found them to be unique. Liam, the love interest, is smokin' hot and fun to read. The twist at the end was unexpected, and leads nicely into a sequel without leaving readers hanging.  3.5 stars
