“A spicy mixture of family scandal, mother-daughter betrayal, and good-for-nothing men.” —Publishers Weekly

Everyone from Louisiana to Florida knows Mama Ruby—a small-town girl who became one of the South’s most notorious and volatile women. Now New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe reveals how Mama Ruby’s past haunts the family she’s left behind…


Mama Ruby has died and Maureen Montgomery is finally taking charge of her own life. With her beautiful teenage daughter, Loretta, by her side, she returns to Florida and settles into a routine any other woman would consider bland. But for Maureen and her brother, Virgil, after Mama Ruby’s hair-trigger temper and murderous ways, bland is good. Yet Loretta has other ideas…

Set on becoming rich and famous, Loretta convinces Maureen to let her start a modeling career with the help of a Miami photographer. But even as they move in promising new directions, they can’t escape Mama Ruby—including Virgil, who’s concealed one of her most shocking acts for most of his life. To make a future that’s truly hers, Maureen will have to take on a bit of Mama Ruby’s strength, forge new bonds—and face down the past.

“Monroe is a masterful storyteller.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

Another great book by Mary Monroe! This is fast moving with all kinds of twist and turns as her books always have. You just don't want to put this book now as you just don't know what is around the corner. Some of the storyline is a bit farfetched, but overall it's a good book! If you are fan of her story lines, this one won't disappoint you!
