Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons: Rose Gardner Mystery #2

When Rose reports for Fenton County jury duty she figures she's lucky to get out of a morning working at the DMV. Instead, despite a disastrous encounter with the new assistant district attorney, Mason Deveraux, she's picked as a juror on a murder case. As the trial progresses, she realizes an ominous vision she had in the men's restroom proves the defendant is innocent. And there's not a cotton picking thing she can do about it. Or is there? As if things weren't bad enough, Rose's older sister Violet is going through a mid-life crisis.

    "Read in print instead"

    This book (and the previous one in the series) was delightful. I thoroughly enjoyed it but the reader drove me nuts. I listened to the first one on audio and she didn't seem to bother me quite so much then but with this one I just couldn't bear it. I had the speed turned up to 1.5 and it helped somewhat but the whole cadence of her speech was still off. Read it on your e-reader instead. It was very enjoyable that way.

    "Heart warming truely endearing rom com mystery"
    Any additional comments?

    Love, love, love, this series! Love the many life threatening twists Rose faces. Boy she is one unlucky girl at times. She was such a weak character at the start of 28 and a half wishes that was worried that the story would lack depth. How wrong was I. Love the addition of Rose's besty Neely Kate and the funny interactions with the uptight Mason. Which you just know that more is going to come with those 2. Then there is the ever complicated relationships with Joe and her sister Violet.I Originally started to read 28 and a half wishes and not realizing it was a series. But with 29 and a half reasons I then decided to go with the audio book to get the feel of a more 3D dimension with the characters. I must admit that I have since ended up reading the rest of series instead of the audio book (5 books in total so far and 2 novellas). I didn't particularly like the narration voiced for Rose. Thought she sounded a bit stuck up and not soft enough. However, that being a personal preference I still loved listening and was still able to be sucked in non the less. I'm so looking forward to the next 2 books still to come out. I have not been sucked into a series this much since the Crossfire series. Which I must admit this one is so much better and no long lengthy 2 year plus wait just for a book.

    "Love this series!"

    Not quite as good as the first book, but still quite entertaining. The narrator's voice is a bit grating. I think this might be a difficult listen for anyone who isn't used to hearing a southern drawl.
