Hang onto your hats! This T-bird roars down the road with the top down and the wind in your hair. Take a 30-year-old amateur sleuth soured on failed romances. Pair her with an ex-jailbird-turned-Christian mother. Throw
in a hunky male who's off limits. Mix with a hunt for a friend's missing fiancé. Top with a healthy dollop of comeuppance for a car-thieving gigolo and you have the recipe for one madcap ride. As the story opens, Ruby
is drowning in a well of depression. "In the game show of life," she says, "I was a pretty poor consolation prize." By the end, her focus is off herself and onto life's true prize.

Dunn offers a rare book that combines sharp wit and clear truth with pure fun and excitement. Written in saucy first-person narrative, this book strikes at the heart of the devastating effects of sexual promiscuity on the human spirit. The characters are drawn with a lucid pen, even when their behavior is downright insane. (Feb., 240 pp., $10.99)
