Publisher's Summary

Third installment in the New York Times best-selling Rose Gardner Investigations series.  

They say the road to hell is paved in good intentions, and Rose Gardner can’t shake the notion she’s headed there in a handbasket. She feels responsible for the death of a woman she tried - and failed - to save with her visions, and though she intends to do the “right” thing and tell James Malcolm she can’t possibly accept his offer of a relationship, she hasn’t yet mustered the strength. Worst of all, her sister is terminally ill, and there isn’t a thing she can do to save her.  

When a new case falls into Rose’s lap, she eagerly shifts her attention to someone else’s problems - except it’s Henryetta, and every person, and problem, is somehow connected. The case will bring her back into contact with James, whom she still hasn’t answered, and force her to confront her past in other unexpected ways.  

Meanwhile, Rose and Neely Kate find themselves playing host to an unlikely house guest. Helping the stranger may require them to become more entangled with the crime world, something Rose knows she should avoid. She and Neely Kate have the very best of intentions, but are those intentions ushering them down a path they can’t easily leave?

JUST OK!

It seems like these stories are becoming repetitious. They are all good but I'm going to take a break and come back to this series a little later. Maybe it will all seem fresh.

Love this series

I am hooked on this series, although I feel there is TMI in the sex Scenes . She is an awesome writer and makes you feel like you are there and are part of it all. It’s a roller coaster ride between right and wrong, I also love the narrator, she really brings out the characters.

Oh man

I absolutely love these books and the narrator does such an amazing job. Rose finds herself in even more trouble with this book, but the ending is oh-so-sweet. Enjoy y’all 😉

Another fantastic page turner

This was one of my favorite Rose Gardner investigation books! The story kept moving and I could not put it down! Love the narrator but still not fond of Rose and James as a couple. I would have liked Rose to see that she can be independent woman without a man. I feel like she just fell into the same pattern. Sigh, but I still love it and will keep listening.

No spoilers

This is the second time I have enjoyed this book. First was read second i listen to it. Both were very good but the narration edged over reading MS McManus dose a fantastic job with the story telling along with the voices and I will be getting the rest in audio. As far as MS Swank she ALWAYS gives you a truly great book. It doesn't matter what she Wright's and recommend all her book.

One of the best series

I am a huge fan of this series. I read/listened them all in under two months. Easiest series to read, loved all the characters. The mysteries and the love story. I’m going into Rose and James withdrawals!!
