Blog Tour / Knotted Roots by Ruthi Kight

Title-Knotted Roots
Series- Knotted Roots Book # 1 
By-Ruthi Kight
Genre- YA Romance


Partying with friends and scoring a flawless tan is about all Roxie has on her list of things to make her Hampton's summer perfect.

Her parents, however, have other plans and Grandma Betty's farm is just one of them.

Just as her life is in shambles and the quaint town is suffocating her, she meets Chase.

Somewhere in the mix of bummer summer and small town doldrums, he becomes the boy she can't seem to avoid falling for. Just adding him to the picture, her stay starts to get better, even if she knows it has to end with the summer holidays.

That is until Betty drops a life-shattering bomb.

Roxie must make a choice that will change her life forever. What happens when a spoiled brat from New York learns the true meaning of love, loss, and forgiveness?

Can Chase and Roxie find a way to be together or is this just another summer romance?


I balled my fists up and tried not to do something stupid. I stared her square in the eyes and took a deep breath. “I’m just living up to your expectations, Grandma,” I spat the last word at her. “You were right about me. I’m nothing but trouble. I ruin every person I come in contact with. Just ask Mom and Dad! I probably ruined them as well!”

I tried to run again, but her small hands forcefully grabbed my arm and pulled me back around. “You had nothing to do with their unhappiness, do ya hear me? Nothing!” She shook my arm and stared intensely at me.

I jerked my arm out of her hand. I couldn’t bear to feel her rough hands on me. “Don’t lie to me! The least you could do is be honest with me!” I could feel my body shaking as the adrenaline coursed through my body. “How the hell would you know anything about them, anyway? It’s not like you’ve actually been there, have you?”

“I wanted to be Rox-”

“No! If you really wanted to be there, you would have! You could have come to see us anytime!”

“The door works both ways! I tried to get your mother to visit, but she was full of excuses. There was always something more important! So I quit asking.”

“What about a phone call? You sit here on your high horse and lecture me about hurting Chase, and yet you have ignored your only child, and granddaughter, for sixteen years! You have no right to say a damn thing to me!” I screamed as I struggled to hold back the tears that were ready to drop. There was no way in hell she was going to have that power over me. I stormed up the stairs and slammed into my room.

The southern summer was back with a vengeance.

Helping out a friend was what Katy had in mind when she agreed to give Roxie a hand on the farm.

She expected it to be an easy job wrapped in the possibility of a break from her mother’s constant vodka stupor.

What she didn’t expect was to find him.

Brian spent his life in his brother’s shadow, constantly falling short of others’ expectations. 

When he gets the chance to prove himself, he's forced to decide if there’s more to him than just the mistakes he’s made.

The summer was supposed to be easy. 

It was supposed to be fun. 

But sometimes, when you least expect fall.
