Mallory Jones is tired of being the girl who stays home and practices French horn while her identical twin, Blake, is crowned homecoming queen. So when she has the opportunity to pretend to be Blake, she takes it. At Camp Pine Ridge, she will spread her wings and emerge a butterfly. Or at least someone who finally gets kissed by a cute guy. That is, until bad boy Ben Iron Cloud shows up, ready to get revenge on Blake—aka Mallory.
If it weren’t for that infuriating girl, Ben wouldn’t even be at camp. Luckily, he now has six weeks to soak up some rays and get even with his nemesis. But the more time he spends with Blake, the more he realizes she’s nothing like the girl he thought she was—she’s kind and innocent and suddenly way too tempting. And soon enough, revenge is the last thing on his mind. Unfortunately, the girl he’s falling for is keeping a major secret…
Disclaimer: This book contains a super-hot bad boy out for revenge, all sorts of camp hijinks, and a girl who realized she’s been a butterfly all along.
She’s off to see the killer…
Lawyer Ruby O’Deare might not be living the American dream, but it feels like it every time she visits her small town megamall. The shoes! The lighting! Prince Charming spotted in the food court! It’s a dream, right?
But all dreams must come to an end.
Ruby’s does when she wakes up after a one-night stand with the town’s sexy zoning commissioner, Noel West. Actually, that part is good. It’s the expired Dollar Store condoms she finds that feel too real.
And then her favorite client Estelle turns up dead.
Ruby is determined to find out the truth behind the curtains of Ozcorp, the company that owns the heavenly megamall and has the most to gain from her client’s death. She just hopes the zoning commissioner she might be falling for isn’t caught up in the danger.

What people are saying!
“If Stephanie Plum and The Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy had a love child, it would be Ruby O’Deare. Working as underemployed lawyer for a terrifying boss, Ruby is plagued by the nagging sensation all her decisions are the wrong ones. Nonetheless, she charges headlong into murder, mayhem and climate controlled malls without giving it a second thought. Along the way she meets Mr. Right who may or may not be, a self obsessed policeman, a human version of the pet dog who takes up permanent resident on her couch and myriad other characters who are sublimely entertaining. Laugh out loud funny, this is one hilarious heroine who is here to stay.”
-Beth McMullen-author of Original Sin and Spy Mom
“Ruby’s Misadventures with Reality is laugh out loud hilarious with so many humorous mishaps and antics. Samantha Bohrman kept me entertained from the very first sentence. I’m not sure where she comes up with half the things she does, but I think we should erect a bronzed midget statue of her to worship. Yes, this book was THAT good.”
-Jessica Adkins-Charles from Bottles & Books Reviews
“Samantha Bohrman has written a witty, quirky, completely original laugh-out-loud adventure. I eagerly followed Ruby through this imaginative and charming mystery, following her through one delightful mishap after another in her quest to navigate life and love in the land of Oz.”
– Kristi Belcamino, Macavity and Anthony Award-nominated author of the Gabriella Giovanni mystery series.
