Ruby Rain, Jim Brady

Caution, mild spoilers ahead.

“The grass is always greener on the other side.
Two women will find out just how wrong they both are.
One longs for freedom, the other just wants her loneliness to end. But what will happen to them once those wishes come true and what lengths will they go to have these wishes granted?”

I bought this book from a fellow writer on twitter. The name was interesting and the description, intriguing. I wanted to love this book so much because nothing is better than to meet a good rising author. But I was disappointed.

The story is told on 188 pages and the main characters are introduced in a fast manner. One is a woman abused by her husband with a severe OCD, the other one is a private investigator who hears voices in her head and incites others to murder.

I found the story superficial and boring. The surrounding world was not developed and when a detail was missing it was added promptly between parenthesis to avoid any plot-hole.

The characters in the story are not easy to relate to. They have their flaws and their strengths, and they undergo a development through the pages of the story. But they are also told about in a plain fashion, giving no interest in their lives. They undergo a change swiftly, without you being able to feel for them.
