Brace Yourself

Ruthann's debut novel is a tour de force. Its opening pages detail what it's like to spread your wings in a small town. In its tender moments, it helps us redefine what family is and the terms of friendship. What would you do for the people you love? How far would you go to protect them? At its core are horrific events that take a suprising twist. And just when you think it can't get worse, it does! It will leave you bloody, bruised and beaten but you will be satisfied and maybe look at those nearest you with new eyes. If you are on the fence about getting this book, I strong encourage you to take the ride. Strap yourself in, give Ruthann the keys - she knows what she is doing! I can not wait for her next novel.

Brace Yourself!

Ruthann Jagge's debut novel is an unexpected tour de force. Strap yourself in and prepare to go on one hell of a ride! The opening pages paint a beautiful scene of spreading your wings in a small town. In its tender moments, it helps us to redefine what family is and the actual terms of friendship. What would you do for the ones you love? How far would you go to protect them? The very core of this novel is centered around horrific events with surprising twists around each corner. And just when you think it can't get any worse, it does! It ends bloody, bruised, and beaten. You, as a reader, will feel all of it but will be satisfied and maybe look at the people nearest to you with new eyes. Ruthann weaves a gripping and horrific tale that still maintains heart. That in my opinion is no easy feat. If you are on the fence about taking the ride that is the New Patient's Girl, I strongly urge you to do it. Put on your seat belt and give Ruthann the keys - she knows what she's doing. I can not wait for her next novel.

A DEBUT NOVELLA THAT PACKS A PUNCH

Ruthann Jagge's debut novella The New Patient packs a punch and more than delivers! This story takes place in a small town where our main character is building a life for herself as a nurse. Upon working at a nursing facility, her favorite patient dies. The patient leaves Jamie a mysterious sack that contains a notebook labeled "My Recipes." As Jamie is leaving work she comes across two of her friends that have been assaulted by two men. The two men kidnap the three women. What follows is a downward spiral of nightmares and depravity as the story takes a vicious turn. Will Jamie and her friends make it out alive? What significance does the sack left to Jamie from her patient play in the story? You will have to read this novella to find out! This novella has a little bit of a lot and I loved that. There is a mix of small town horror, supernatural, backwoods, extreme, and survival horror. To be able to write such a complete story in a novella, I can't wait to see what Ruthann Jagge does with a full length novel. Bravo Ruthann. All the stars for this mighty little story.

Outstanding Debut!

Ruthann Jagge is an author to watch out for. I have read her short stories in several anthologies and have always been impressed with the quality of her work. This novella comes as no surprise with how good it is. Old southern charm mixed with gritty, dark and very gruesome themes, throw in supernatural elements and you have a story that leaves you in awe of Ruthann's talent. Simply a wonderful debut!

Welcome To Cree’s Crossing!

Jamie Carver is a hardworking, caring nurse that does her absolute best to make her residents comfortable and happy. Her favorite patient, Mz Elizabeth, passes suddenly, leaving Jamie with her handwritten recipe book. Shortly after, her and her friends are abducted and locked in a cellar, with seemingly no hope for escape. The New Girls’ Patient is a face paced, supernatural story that takes the reader on a journey of uncovering the past of Cree’s Crossing to save the lives of Jamie and her friends before it’s too late. The gore and violence is sprinkled in perfectly, making the plot focused story even more intense. I absolutely loved the amount of detail put into the history of Cree’s Crossing. The amount of backstory for characters really made this novelette feel more novel length.
