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?

Best Author Ever!

If you’ve never read a book by Denise Grover Swank do yourself a huge favor and buy ANY of her books! Just like the rest of them, this one did not disappoint. I always LOVE reading Rose, please never stop writing these! This is book three of a spin off series, but I highly recommend starting with Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes, you’ll be glad you did!

Couldn't stop listening!

Each book gets better and better. This was the first one of the Rose Gardener books I listened to instead of reading and I really enjoyed it. each book gets better and better. I can hardly wait for the next to be available. I'm hooked. Denise Grover Swank is pure genius. I haven't read one of her books yet I haven't loved.

Rose’s story continues...hot and dangerous

As a Rose addict, I loved this story...its twists and turns. Rose is growing as a person as well as her understanding who she us. Nellie Kate, Jed, Violet, Joe and of course Hames ( Skeeter) ...and Mason returns with his own agenda. I totally recommend the Rose series which begins with “28 and a Half Wishes” - you won’t be sorry!
