Book Review: Move by Sherri Fulmer Moorer

Cover Art by  by Tatiana Villa for the cover art. You can check out more of her work at

All Ruby Josen wanted was to get ahead in life. After a decade of lost relationships and missed opportunities, she's ready to move on and desperate to do whatever it takes to get out of her rut. When Ruby meets Bryce, a handsome stranger at the town's spring festival, his offer to turn fate to her favor seems too good to be true. But nothing comes without a price, and Ruby learns that interfering with fate has bigger consequences than she realized. It leaves her to wonder who's really controlling her life and who - or what - Bryce really is.

Where can I buy this book?

My review of Move:
*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

When Ruby is passed over for promotion, she starts to suffer at the hands of Millie, the successful applicant, and boss and former friend Simone. When a mysterious stranger offers to help her to get her life back, Ruby's quiet life spirals out of control and life gets very dangerous and complicated.

When I first heard about this book it was referred to as urban fantasy but the author told me that this was mainly a mystery story, which is certainly a better description. I don't read a lot from this genre but I very much enjoyed the story. Poor Ruby is one of life's punchbags and an innocent wish for others to stop picking on her turns her life into a rollercoaster ride. The plot is interesting and one problem after another comes along for Ruby, who you feel such sympathy for. Everyone can relate to being miserable at work and having the boss from hell. Everyone can relate to being accused of doing something you didn't do and struggling to prove it. The book moves at rapid pace with enough descriptive work to enhance it but not enough to slow it down. It moves from situation to situation in a smooth and nicely constructed manner. The characters are developed well without being overdone.

There are no real negatives to the book and I think that the overall length is just right. There are a few minor editing errors where character names are mixed up but nothing that takes away from the story.

I'd rate this as 3.5 out of 5 and it will suit fans of mysery, cozy mystery, chicklit, general fiction and maybe paranormal fans as well. I would be interested in reading more by this author in the future.
