Review/Giveaway: Knotted Roots by Ruthi Knight


Partying with friends and scoring a flawless tan is about all Roxie has on her list of things to make her Hampton's summer perfect.

Her parents, however, have other plans and Grandma Betty's farm is just one of them.

Just as her life is in shambles and the quaint town is suffocating her, she meets Chase.

Somewhere in the mix of bummer summer and small town doldrums, he becomes the boy she can't seem to avoid falling for. Just adding him to the picture, her stay starts to get better, even if she knows it has to end with the summer holidays.

That is until Betty drops a life-shattering bomb.

Roxie must make a choice that will change her life forever. What happens when a spoiled brat from New York learns the true meaning of love, loss, and forgiveness?

Can Chase and Roxie find a way to be together or is this just another summer romance?

My Review:

This is a heartwarming story full of laughs, angst and lots of heart. I really enjoyed the characters. Roxie, is both spoiled and pampered and full of heart. I found myself both loving her and wanting to yell at her at times. Throw in Grandma Betty and BFF Katy and the cast of characters is well rounded.

Top it off with a cowboy and this is a definite must read. Ms. Kight gives us beautiful descriptions and story line that flows nicely. I love the banter between Roxie and Chase. Ms. Kight does such a good job describing everything that I want to trade places with Roxie and spend some time on the farm.

This is a beautiful love story with real emotions, wisdom and full of trials that test the characters and add to their depth. I recommend this book for the level of heart and emotions it evokes.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review.

About the Author:

If you had asked 6 year old Ruthi what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would have told you a Rock Star. Those dreams faded to the background when she found out who the true Rock Stars are: Authors.

She has always had a fascination with books, losing herself completely in numerous books, enjoying the worlds she found that were so unlike her own. They were her escape, and eventually became her passion.

Her family has been putting up with her and her incoherent ramblings while she worked on her debut novel, Knotted Roots. Her five year old and Fiance have suffered through many “fend for yourself” nights, but somehow still manage to love her anyway.

She is now attending the Southern New Hampshire University, working on her Bachelor’s in Creative Writing/Fiction so that she can create her own worlds for others to fall in love with.

Okay, now that I’m done talking in the third person, let me just say that I love connecting with people via Facebook, Goodreads, my blog, etc. If you would like to chat, you can usually find me online at any given time. I also want to say thank you to each and every person who reads my book. It was a labor of love and I truly hope that you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
