Blood Sugar by Sascha Rothchild is a 2022 G.P. Putnam’s Sons publication.

After her beloved husband, Jason, dies suddenly, Ruby finds herself being interrogated by a police detective who is positive she had something to do with Jason’s death…. After all, she seems to have an uncanny knack for being around when people die tragically….

This is a clever novel, which examines the various psychological levels of a criminal mind. Ruby’s choices are not premeditated, she merely takes advantage of a situation when it presents itself, and her actions are only aimed at those who are not exactly model citizens. She’s gotten away with murder several times, but now it looks like her luck may have run out…

A darkly humorous story that was both chilling and entertaining at the same time. Ruby is someone you can attach the anti-hero label on- but be careful- because she doesn’t fit into the usual slots. The story has a simple, and straightforward approach, with Ruby regaling us with how and why she committed murder, the various friendships and romantic entanglements she developed in her life and how she managed to find herself the number one suspect in her husband’s death.

There are more than a few big revelations along the way! Her narrative is nothing short of brilliant. She’ll have you right in the palm of your hand…. And you'll like her... and find yourself rooting for her!

My only complaint was with some of the content -and the language on occasion was too course for my personal taste, but overall...

This is an incredibly entertaining story, very well executed and it kept me glued to the pages from beginning to end.

Ruby Simon, the narrator of this story, is a psychopath, which one tends to forget as the story progresses. She has already killed 3 people and comes under suspicion of killing her husband when he dies unexpectedly. How this all plays out is quite absorbing up until the very end, which I found disappointing. Nevertheless, it's a very good read, and I look forward to the author's next book.

Whoa! Have you ever met someone who was a master storyteller and had so much tea to spill that kept you listening for hours and left speechless in utter shock and delight?

That is exactly what author, Sascha Rothschild did in this book as the protagonist begins sharing her unbelievable life story that you need to hear!

Ruby was born into a family of wordsmiths and at 5 she was a precocious gifted child. She saw things and people in black and white and made major life altering decisions for others with her keen analysis. This continues throughout her life, but when she made the unworldly conclusion that she was human and shared this was her husband that is when her nightmare begins and her past analytical mindset choices haunts her behind bars.


You better be getting you that extra large bucket of popcorn before you start reading this one, because once you start you aren’t going to want to stop until the very dirty end.

LOVED IT!!
