We’re delighted to be on tour today sharing Alice-Jane’s thoughts for Finding Ruby by J A Higgins.

On Halloween night thirteen year old Ruby disappears in the company of a masked figure. She is never seen again. The only witness is Nell Montague who is just seven years old.

Twenty three years later, Nell is trapped in an abusive relationship and still suffering from vivid nightmares of what she saw. When tragedy strikes she escapes and attempts to put her past behind her. Then thirteen year old Emily disappears.

Haunted by increasingly disturbing visions and helped by a reluctant psychic, Nell must unravel the mystery of what really happened that night because to save Emily she must first find Ruby.  But to do so she will question everything she thought she knew about her own childhood and soon discovers that nightmares don’t always end when you wake up.

Book cover Finding Ruby by J A Higgins

Finding Ruby by J A Higgins is published by Silverwood Books and is available to purchase in digital and paperback formats.


I thoroughly enjoyed this captivating story.

For Nell Montage the journey of escaping the past can only be achieved through addressing her ghosts of the present.

In her attempts to leave behind her abusive relationship, Nell taps into an inner strength that drives her forward to be able to focus her attentions to what her memories tell her.

With the development of friendship, and support from others Nell is able to join forces to help find Ruby, and the most unanswered and plaguing questions of her life.

I would definitely recommend this intriguing story!

Alice-Jane guest reviewer on Jera's Jamboree

Born and raised at Porton Down in Wiltshire, and currently working for the NHS in Salisbury, J A Higgins has always been fascinated by crime, history and the unexplained.  Finding Ruby is the first in the Nell Montague mystery series which will examine how horrors from the past are still very relevant today.
