About Blood Sugar
In BLOOD SUGAR, Sascha Rothchild’s debut thriller, Ruby finds herself shocked to be questioned about committing four murders. Because she’s only killed three people.
For all that she’s a killer, Ruby’s a delightfully likable character. She’s a Yale-educated psychologist whose entire career is built on helping people. She’s an animal lover and cat mom. Her favorite color is purple. And she really dislikes disorder and bullies. Who hasn’t thought “I’m so mad, I could kill them!” It’s just that most of us don’t act on the thought.
My thoughts about Blood Sugar
This is a fast-paced read told in first person from Ruby’s POV. You get a nonlinear storyline. And while she’s not an unreliable narrator, Ruby’s not exactly candid in what she shares. With the reader or her lawyer.
The story unfolds a layer at a time, intricate puzzle pieces fitting together. Several twists and revelations kept my attention engaged. The author was great at creating a sense of place whether it was Ruby’s time at Yale or her time in Miami, FL.
For fans of Gillian Flynn and Riley Sager.
Thank you GP Putnam’s Sons for the ARC.
