Publisher's Summary

While Rose recovers from a broken heart, she finds herself at odds with her sister and business partner, Violet. Rose buries herself in her landscaping work but becomes worried when her employee and friend, Bruce Wayne Decker, goes missing. In the meantime Fenton County Assistant DA Mason Deveraux has been patiently waiting to begin a relationship with Rose, but she realizes she needs to confront the demons of her past before she can embrace a new future. She needs to find out the truth about her birth mother.

But her past isn't her only demon. An undercurrent of tension has been spreading through Henryetta, Arkansas, since drug lord Daniel Crocker's arrest six months ago. Still, she's not prepared for a nightmare come true: Crocker's escape from prison. Crocker carries a grudge, and he's determined to make Rose pay. But he plays a game of cat and mouse, forcing Mason and the Fenton County Sheriff's department to hide Rose on her birth mother's farm. But will it be enough to save her?

Much better than the 3rd book

Things start to heat up, Rose is acting more like a woman than a girl, and I just wish she didn't ramble on so much in her head...but you know what you're getting into after the first book. Glad not to have the smoker voice reading anymore! Rose sounds like a 24-year-old, rather than the 54-year-old, whom was narrating the last three books!

Narrator Change

I'm not a fan of the new narrator. The old narrator really brought Rose's character to life.

Great series, made better with new narrator

I've really been enjoying this series, even though the first few books were difficult to get through with the strange accent and mispronounced words. This narrator really puts the emotion in the stories and pulls you in! can't wait to move on to the next one

I liked the original narrator better

I just got used to the narration by Francis Fuller when it changed to Shannon McManus. She did an ok job but I liked Fuller's querks and she got so much better from the first book. The story was great, very exciting.

Why the new narrator?!

Changing a narrator four books into a series wasn't a good move. Not to mention that this new narrator's "performance" falls flat. The voice doesn't seem to differentiate enough between characters and the tone of the narrator really has an impact on how we perceive the main character. Rose changes as a result of how this narrator reads compared to the first tgree books. Such a disappointment.

Narrator

So glad to have Shannon back! I struggled with the last narrator, the voice just didn’t fit.

not as good as the last 2. Moved pretty slow

pretty slow moving, somewhat predictable. Disappointed in the overall story. This narrator is better, Arkansans don't have the accent of the previous narrator. Will try another volume or 2, hopefully it will pick up the pace

Good but Rose is too emo

In the last part, Rose made me cringe on how useless she is during important events in the story, she is an emotional mule and wish she would just shoot the damn gun.
