Publisher Description

Book four in the New York Times bestselling Rose Gardner Investigations series. 

Rose Gardner feels like she’s up a creek without a paddle. Her sister is dying, her secret boyfriend, James Malcolm, is struggling to protect the county underworld from an upstart drug dealer, and her ex has moved back to town with a bee in his bonnet and a mission to root out corruption in the county. To make matters worse, Neely Kate is in dire straits too—the past she’s spent years trying to forget has finally caught up to her, with horrific fallout. They’re in the thick of danger, and everyone’s quick to tell them they’d do best to hunker down and keep to themselves.


But mysteries have a way of finding Rose and Neely Kate. A mother contacts them about finding her missing teenage daughter the same day they find a different young woman stranded by the side of the road. They know they should turn down the case, just as they should ignore the signs that the woman with the broken down car is running from something, but for Rose and Neely Kate, curiosity will always have a stronger call than danger.

Cannot be faulted, absolutely amazing. Best book I’ve ever read

I can’t begin to describe how amazing this book is. I’ve been reading these series since 2015 ish time and I’ve always be so addicted to them (so far to the extent I would read them over my homework!) I can honestly say this is the best book I have ever read. The constant keeping you on the edge of you seat and surprise after surprise, making you need to turn the page. I love how this book did everything I wanted it to rose became on such good terms with joe and mason again and I thought that was so special, and how you had so many events going on at once: her love life, the missing person, Carly, her dying sister, everything with neely Kate, making up with ex’s. It just could not be faulted. I honestly love your writing as an author, I’ve never got into a series so much to make me count down the days to a release, and I Thankyou for that. You are honestly amazing and I will have these books with me for the rest of my life.

I’ve loved every single book of DGS, Rose Gardener is a character that’s stuck in my heart and head from page 1 of twenty-eight and a half wishes. This book has left me with so many emotions I’m already super excited for the next book I live for my escapes to Henrietta and to be in Rose’s world. Hurry with your next release I’ll of hopefully had my baby by then and know it will help through the night feeds.
