Excellent follow-up to Mama Ruby
Ruby stealing Maureen.
Maureen finally being free!
I would take Maureen to dinner just to give her a sense of independence and normalcy from Mama Ruby.
I really hate that Mama Ruby turned out to be such a deadly character compared to her beginings as Ruby Jean in "Mama Ruby"!
Good story, but..................
Yes, I found it entertaining and funny. Mama Ruby is a mess, and she kept the story interesting with all her antics.
EVERTHING!!!! I loved his accents, and his portrayal of Mama Ruby. He was the perfect narrator for this, and the mama Ruby book.
Yes.. It was so crazy at times, I would've loved to see some of the scenes played out.
I've said it before (multiple times), and now I'll say it again. The overuse of gasp, sniff, incredulous is so annoying, it makes me want to scream!!!! How can she have so many stories, written so many books, and NOONE brought it up to her about changing these words??? Sniffed: Inhaled, breath, snorted. Gasped: gulped, huffed, wheezed. Incredulous: skeptical, disbelieving, dubious. See? Not that hard!! I'm currently reading the 3rd and final book in this series, and in true Mary Monroe fashion, she has used these 3 words more times than I can count.
