    1 thought on “Dangerous Allies

    1. I found the author Rickie Blair via her Cozy Mystery series (The Leafy Hollow Mysteries, which are wonderful, by the way) so I was surprised and extremely impressed by Dangerous Allies (The Ruby Danger Series Book 1). Rickie Blair shows off her "chops" and displays what a wonderfully talented and well rounded author she truly is. If you enjoy the "feel" of Film Noir (think Double Indemnity) you will absolutely enjoy this book!

    2. Rickie Blair has a fascinating read in Dangerous Allies. Her plot is refreshing in that it has a fresh idea for a mystery. I haven't read one like it before and since I've read 100's and 100's of mysteries over the years that is saying a lot.I really liked the character of Ruby 'Danger' Delaney who has a bit of a drinking problem, loves her husband (in my mind he is a selfish, criminal) and is a bit naive. She is an actress but hasn't had a job in 2 years because of a major pill and booze proble [...]

    3. A former tv star and her hedge fund running husband are on a cruise. When they aren't drinking, they are acting erratically. Others on the cruise include Russian mob members, schemers and a retired cop. The mobsters are after the actress and her husband because of missing money. Going further into the plot will lead to spoilers, but what follows the cruise is far more engrossing than the introduction. It is fine weekend reading on a par with a Lifetime movie.

    4. When Things Go BadThey really go bad. And, the action spirals further and further down into chaos. There were areas of "dryness," where the action seemed to be on a standstill; but, overall, a good book.

    5. For my taste, it moved a tad slowly for a thriller and there was a major plot point that was wonkily written which took me out of the action. With that said: I did find the over all story interesting, the protagonist was inventive and I did enjoy it.

    6. This is an intriguing book -in all senses of the word! Rickie Blair's fiction flows with a countless surprises and plot twists, sometimes making you wonder who the bad guy really isbut don't worry, it all gets sorted out in time to continue the series.

    7. A little bit dark and an exciting mystery. I was on the edge of my seat through most of this book especially through the last few chapters. Ruby is a flawed hero but she does know right from wrong. So, when it becomes clear that many things in her life are wrong she is compelled to make them right. The characters in this story are well developed. There are obvious bad people and obvious good people but it also contains a selection of people who are a bit of both. This is a good book and I will b [...]

    8. I just finished reading Dangerous Allies. Not was I hooked. It has action, fear, danger, mafia, drama, and I couldn't put it down. I could feel the panic and fear as I read through the book.

    9. There were times when I thought, "Well, I'll finish it, but I'm not sure I want to read any more of this series," but I am so glad I did finish it and I definitely WILL be reading on in the series.

    10. Wow what a read. Well written and believable. Actress Ruby Danger snoops through her husband Antony's papers and files and discovers what a bad boy he is. Owing the Russian Mafia twenty million on top of cooking the books at work. Everyone wants Antony dead or in jail. Ruby runs for her life.

    11. "A Fabulous Mystery Thriller Which Is Riveting"Let's take a cruise ship and enjoy the sights, the food, and mystery. Cruise ships are like huge cities with all kinds of criminal activity if one takes a step in the wrong direction. Ruby Delaney is trying to enjoy a one-week Caribbean cruise aboard "Apollonis," a luxury liner. Her husband, Antony Carver, considered a Wall Street wizard, has requested she join him on this trip rather than her visiting her two motherless nieces in Vancouver. While s [...]

    12. One of my deciding factors on if I love or hate a book deals with how the author treats the characters. Are they developed? Are they relatable to the reader? Do we learn about them through what they say or do or do we rely on the narration to tell us. In Dangerous Allies, the characters are complex, developed and very much three dimensional and you can relate to them. Ruby Delaney is a character that you can relate to. She's not perfect but she is not a bad person and you can instantly connect w [...]

    13. This was an exceptionally good mystery/thriller. I never got bored and even better I was totally surprised at most of the twists and turns in the plot, of which there were many. In my reviews I don't talk about details so don't expect to find any in this review, I try to express my reactions, how much I enjoyed reading a book as well as comment on grammar and punctuation so people will know why I liked or disliked or lived it.Dangerous Allies is very well written so I was not distracted from the [...]

    14. Ruby Delaney (aka Ruby Danger) is on her second honeymoon with her husband when she finds out he's about to desert her (and also the investors in his company) and disappear with more than 500 million dollars. He's been laundering money from the Russian mob and he's in a hurry to make himself scarce. What's worse, she will surely be blamed for all this.So, to make a long story short, Ruby disappears first. Through a series of improbable (but fun) events, she manages to go all the way from a ship [...]

    15. ** I received a copy of this book from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.**'Dangerous Allies' pulled me in from the beginning and I literally did not put it down. The storyline was fast paced, full of action, deceit, mystery, suspense and some pretty clever scenarios. The way the story played out was great. The characters were a vast array of personalities, from mobsters, cops, cheaters, a$$holes, and of course an actress who became quite the investigator. Ruby made an awesome lead. [...]

    16. I didn't find Ruby Delaney (aka Ruby Danger) or her husband very likable characters at the beginning of the book. As the book progressed, I liked Antony less and less. However, Ruby became more likable, and by the end of the book I liked and admired her. There were twists and turns throughout the book, and the danger increased on every page. I really liked Hari and wanted to know more about him--maybe we'll learn more of his backstory in future books in the series. The book ended the way I like [...]

    17. I was provided a copy of "Dangerous Allies"in exchange for any kind of sincere review. Honestly, I'm very busy this week getting ready to leave for vacation, hadn't heard of the author and wasn't looking forward to reading it. My goodness, was I in for a surprise! Instead of dreading it, I found I couldn't put it down (found myself waking every few hours to read a little more)! Ruby Delaney, well-known actress is, also, known as Ruby Danger, and Danger is, exactly, what she keeps finding herself [...]

    18. Three and a half stars.If anyone is after an action packed adventure then definitely choose this book. Ruby (an ex-actress) discovers that her husband isn't the man she thought he was and from then on her life takes a dangerous and sinister turn - who can she trust in this new, mad world she finds herself in? It certainly passes the time as you race through the pages wondering how she will escape from this scrape or solve that problem. A great stocking filler for the book lovers in your family! [...]

    19. I received this book as an arc for a honest review. If you love page turning suspense and intrigue then this is the book for you. This is the first book in a great new series about Ruby Danger. I love the character Ruby Danger with all her flaws, she is still a wonderful character with a huge heart. Ruby is an actress fresh out of rehab on her second honeymoon with her husband on a cruise ship with lots of mysterious characters. Great story line!

    20. This book by Blair is definitely a good start to a series. The groundwork is laid for the personalities who will be in the next book of the series and the plot is enough to keep you turning the pages to find out what happens. I imagine there are many more twists and turns coming in this series. Read and enjoy, I did.J.

    21. Okay, so the first thing I would say about the book is that the way its written is fantastic !This is the first time I read a book by Rickie Blair and it is was fantastic. From the first chapter, the writer holds the attention of the reader. Superb.Secondly, the way the story unfolds grips the reader to finish the book until the end is known. Would like to read more by the author. Good work !

    22. This was a fun read that kept me on the edge waiting to see what would happen next. It's always a pleasure when you can actually feel the characters mature and gdow in a novel. I have great hopes that the next book, Dangerous Benefects will be an equally exceptional read. All thar is left to say is, "Poor Hari."

    23. This was an exciting mystery to read. I had such a hard time putting it down, it was suspensful and intriguing. There were enough plot twists to keep one guessing and turning the pages. Can't wait to read the next in the series of Ruby Danger mysteries by Rickie Blair.

    24. It took me a little while to "like" Ruby, but by end of the book I loved her and am looking forward to more stories about her. The cruise ship setting was interesting and pretty different. Nice mystery/suspense!

    25. Amazing. Kept me reading way past my bedtime. Loved every word. Suspense all the way. Couldn't believe what the main characters had to go through. More for sure. Jackie

    26. Did not finishStopped half way through. Silly, Shallow plot with equally shallow characters. Will read no more in the Ruby Danger series.
