Ruby's Misadventures with Reality by Samantha Bohrman

She's off to see the killer...

Lawyer Ruby O'Deare might not be living the American dream, but it feels like it every time she visits her small town megamall. The shoes! The lighting! Prince Charming spotted in the food court! It's a dream, right?

But all dreams must come to an end.

Ruby's does when she wakes up after a one-night stand with the town's sexy zoning commissioner, Noel West. Actually, that part is good. It's the expired Dollar Store condoms she finds that feel too real.

And then her favorite client Estelle turns up dead.

Ruby is determined to find out the truth behind the curtains of Ozcorp, the company that owns the heavenly megamall and has the most to gain from her client's death. She just hopes the zoning commissioner she might be falling for isn't caught up in the danger.

My review:
This is the debut novel by Samantha Bohrman.  I asked to review because of the title.  Ruby's Misadventures with Reality is a quirky fun mystery with a slightly manic shopaholic, totally confused lawyer. Ruby was not at the top of her class nor was she a total screw up.  She ended up as a lawyer because she didn’t have anything better and a quiz told her she would be good at it.  This book is as manic as its heroine.  It will leave you tired and smiling.  I look forward to more from this author.
