Ruby Diaz’s life seems to be going in the wrong direction.

Following a painful split from her husband of three years, Ruby finds herself reluctantly returning to her old neighborhood. The one-bedroom apartment she’s lives in now is twenty-five miles and a far cry from the three-story brownstone she once shared with her husband, Will Cooper. What’s worse, it’s only blocks from her meddlesome parents, who still treat her like the delinquent teenager she once was.

Looking for a new direction, Ruby accepts a position with a local PI firm. Aptly named Gotcha!, the practice specializes in catching cheating lovers in the act. But Ruby’s covert skills are a work in progress. Being ‘made’ while on surveillance is one thing. Being chased down the street by the cheating husband in all his naked glory is something else entirely.

When her beloved former fourth-grade teacher hires her to find out if his wife is cheating, Ruby’s only concern is having to tell him that she found his wife with another man. But her detective skills are put to the test when he is suddenly accused of murder. Convinced of his innocence, Ruby is determined to find the real killer.

Along for the ride is Alex Gabriel, an experienced private detective and Ruby’s childhood nemesis. Alex has grown from a grade school bully into a man with dark smoky eyes and a killer grin, and Ruby finds herself stumbling into feelings for a man she’s hated since she was nine years old. While still pining for her husband, Ruby wonders how she will negotiate the emotional minefield that lies between the man from her past and the man of her future. Especially since she’s having a hard time figuring out which one is which.

RUBY IN REVERSE is a humorous take on moving back home after believing your life was on track, questioning your heart when you thought you’d already found the love of your life, and starting over by going in reverse.
