The Twistedly True Guardian Tale by Stephanie Greenhalgh - Excerpt & Giveaway

The Twistedly True Guardian Tale
(Ruby Hood Series 2)

by Stephanie Greenhalgh

Release Date: August 9th 2015

Summary from Goodreads:

In the small town of Woodsville, Ruby Hood is settling into her role as Guardian of the Wood. In the blink of an eye, her monumental high school graduation comes and goes without her attendance. There are too many other things on her mind.

Her mom, Christine Wood, has just returned from caring for Ruby's ill grandmother. Kent Wolf finally gets released from the hospital and Kayla Wolf is desperate to make amends, while Dylan Hunter works to hone his Huntsman skills. Everything seems like it’s going to work itself out, until Ivy Snow shows up on Ruby’s front porch with an RV filled with seven dwarfs.

As a new darkness casts a shadow over Woodsville, Ruby is unsure where to turn when turmoil erupts in the Wood, and finds herself aligned with an unusual cast of characters. As Guardian of the Wood, Ruby worries that she can’t save everyone, but what if she is the one who needs saving?

This is the second book in the Ruby Hood Series by Stephanie Greenhalgh.

Book Trailer:


Ivy Snow

The woman was absolutely stunning—not in the traditional movie star way, but in a way that was more unique. It was more the way she carried herself with confidence. Her short bobbed hair was black as night and her skin as fair as snow. Her blunt bangs perfectly framed her deep, clear blue eyes. Her crimson lips curled into a soft smile and tips of tattoos peeked out from her neck and shoulders. The woman seemed very at ease in her own skin and couldn’t have looked more comfortable with her legs tucked up beneath her. She had removed her shoes and made herself at home.
“She’s dead, you know,” said the woman.
 “No, silly, my mom. She’s gone.” The woman replied.
A darkness flickered through Ruby’s eyes. She knew the pain of losing a parent all too well. “I’m sorry,” she said contritely. “So is my dad.”
“No kidding.” The woman’s blue eyes gazed at Ruby. “It’ll be fifteen years this summer.”
“Really? Me, too.” The girls held each other’s gaze for a brief minute.
“I’m Ivy…Ivy Snow.” The girl leaned across the oval coffee table and shook Ruby’s hand. The air stood still, and suddenly Ruby understood. Ivy was here for help. Ruby knew they would probably need each other in the near future. Their paths were meant to cross.
