If you loved Ruby and Sal

by Maisy and Max!
Author Jane O’Brien continues the magic, the romance, the enchantment of unforgettable characters, living in unforgettable times and unforgettable places. And the most unforgettable of all…the ruby and diamonds necklace!
My 5 Star Review…
The magic continues! Author O’Brien is known for crafting memorable, likeable characters. Many of them are ordinary regular folk, some have problems and flaws but they all leave a lasting picture in our minds.

While this book can stand alone and Ms. O’Brien deftly weaves in the back story, I recommend that you start with the first book in the series to get the full impact. And why not read “Ruby and Sal”? The first book was my favorite…until this book, Maisy and Max.
