Golden Brooks, best known for her role as Maya on UPN’s Girlfriends, has joined the cast of CW’s Hart of Dixie in a recurring role for it’s upcoming second season.

Brooks will play Ruby Jeffries, described as a “woman with acerbic wit who returns to BlueBell and makes quick friends with Rachel Bilson‘s Zoe,” reports The Hollywood Reporter. “However, upon her return home, Ruby will encounter some unresolved issues with her fellow townspeople including Lemon (Jamie King) and Lavon (Cress Williams).” Brooks’ character and Mayor Lavon Hayes were reportedly high school sweethearts.

Brooks’ tv credits include stints on CSI: Miami, Star Trek: Enterprise, and most recently, The Exes.

Hart of Dixie returns Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 8/7c on CW.
