Ruby Stanhope is back, bigger and better than ever! - with more cocktail spills, more romantic thrills, more political skewerings and LOLs.
In Campaign Ruby, the very fabulous Ruby Stanhope got the Leader of the Opposition elected and fell in love with Luke.
Two years into his first term, the new PM is on the nose. And Luke is demanding romantic dinners at home rather than takeaway on the run.
What's a girl to do when she's about to turn thirty, when her wardrobe turns drab, her love life turns luke-warm and the government is leakier than a cheap umbrella? Can she find her inner Nancy Drew in time to save her boss? Will she succumb to temptation when Elliot, the hot vet, enters the scene?
Luke? Elliot? Work? Love? Unladdered stockings?
Can she have it all? And, more importantly, what should she wear to the Midwinter Ball?
Jessica Rudd, 28, had three career changes in as many years - law, PR, politics - but is now going steady with her life as a writer. She hopes Ruby Blues, sequel to Campaign Ruby, will give her readers as many laughs as she had writing it. Jessica is based in Beijing.
'A light-hearted, skilfully written political romp...the Gen Y comedy of manners par excellence.' Age
'Ruby Blues is a delight to read. Beyond the laughs, it contains some serious messages for us (about our priorities) and for our leaders (about being themselves rather than just spouting predictable talking points). Will someone please buy the PM a copy?' Canberra Times

Really good fun! Rudd combines astute observation with first class comic timing and a genuine gift for characterisation. If you are a fan of Shane Maloney's Murray Whelan books you'll love Ruby Stanhope. Read full review
