Blog Tour: Knotted Roots by Ruthi Kight!

 
Publication date: 29th March 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: 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?

Favourite quote: "Love is all about the screw ups. It's what makes it so sweet when things finally fall into place."

I really enjoyed this book! I had known Ruthi for months before she released Knotted Roots and I was very excited when I first heard about it! I also honestly had no idea that Ruthi was writing a book until one day when I noticed her author page so I was looking forward to seeing what she brought into the book world! Knotted Roots was a fantastic book! It was pretty short and had short chapters which I didn't really like as when I was getting into a certain scene or chapter it would end and go onto a new scene or chapter! Maybe I was just reading it really fast though lol! This is the only thing I didn't like about this book though! The rest of the book was perfect! The plot was amazing! Rich girl goes to small town and falls in love basically sums it up but Ruthi added her own struggles for the characters to face in this book to make it even more emotional and to make you want to keep reading! I found the plot amazing and I couldn't read it fast enough! The characters were also amazing! Roxie was the party girl turned farm girl! It was fun to see her change throughout the book and to see how stubborn she was at the start of this book until the end! She changed so much and her opinion of herself changed a lot as well! She went through a lot in this book emotionally and I felt so sorry for her! She made huge changes to near enough every aspect of her life and she grew up so much! I definitely think that she made the right choice at the end! Chase was the love interest of Roxie and he was hot! He was so supportive of Roxie and he gave her a chance when she was acting like a spoiled rich girl which was so sweet! Most guys would have ignored her or not have admitted what they thought of her but I loved that Chase told Roxie when she was acting spoiled and he was one of the people that helped change Roxie into a better person and I really loved him for that! I thought that there might have been a love triangle in this book but I was so happy when Ruthi didn't put one in as Roxie and Chase were perfect together! I cried like a baby at the ending! It was bittersweet and absolutely perfect! I would honestly love another book to this one or with other characters from this one but I can understand why the book is a standalone! The cover of this book is stunning! It really suits the story! I am also really looking forward to more amazing books from Ruthi! Big thank you to Katy for letting me be on the Blog Tour and to Ruthi for an ARC of Knotted Roots!

Knotted Roots
 
Author bio:

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!
