After the first chapter I was certain I didn't want to continue, but just like a car accident, you can't peel your eyes away. This is a phrase on the front of the book," She's accused of four murders, she's only guilty of three." This writer Sascha Rothchild is wicked good, and I was mesmerized from start to finish. My jaw dropped more than once, and I had a more than a few laughs at Ruby's outlandish yet logical point of view. My daughter Keli is the one that recommended and I'm glad she did. Ruby is a methodical, calculating, brilliant, animal loving, best friend and adoring wife. When she was a young child a shocking occurrence altered everything that followed. The extreme control of her daily life, and her narcissistic logic is entertainment in itself. The mystery falls to the detective who tries to connect the dots between Ruby and four dead people. Like a masterful game of chess, this story is grand. -Kim Luke

Book Blurb

“I could just kill you right now!” It’s something we’ve all thought at one time or another. But Ruby has actually acted on it. Three times, to be exact.

Though she may be a murderer, Ruby is not a sociopath. She is an animal-loving therapist with a thriving practice. She’s felt empathy and sympathy. She’s had long-lasting friendships and relationships, and has a husband, Jason, whom she adores. But the homicide detectives at Miami Beach PD are not convinced of her happy marriage. When we meet Ruby, she is in a police interrogation room, being accused of Jason’s murder. Which, ironically, is one murder that she did not commit, though her vicious mother-in-law and a scandal-obsessed public believe differently. As she undergoes questioning, Ruby’s mind races back to all the details of her life that led her to this exact moment, and to the three dead bodies in her wake. Because though she may not have killed her husband, Ruby certainly isn’t innocent.

Alternating between Ruby’s memories of her past crimes and her present-day fight to clear her name, Blood Sugar is a twisty, clever debut with an unforgettable protagonist who you can’t help but root for—an addicting mixture of sour and sweet.
