Publisher Description

The final book in the USA Today bestselling Neely Kate Mystery series.

Violet Gardner Beauregard is barely cold in her grave, but she’s still stirring up trouble. When Neely Kate Coulson accompanies her best friend Rose to Violet’s attorney for the reading of the will, they get the shock of their lives, one that leaves them both reeling.

If that weren’t enough, Special Prosecutor Mason Devereaux is still calling witnesses for his grand jury, digging into the corruption in Fenton County. Neely Kate is approached by an unexpected source who reveals shocking news from the grand jury testimony—information about her wayward husband, Ronnie Coulson. And just as all the dust starts flying, Kate Simmons sashays back into town. Kate presents an opportunity Neely Kate finds hard to resist—the chance to find out why a Dallas crime syndicate wants the bag of money Neely Kate took from a man she’d killed in self defense years ago.

With Kate involved, there’s a catch. Kate will only tell her what she wants to know if Neely Kate leaves town with her. Immediately.

Can Neely Kate afford to take the risk? Can she afford not to?

A must read!

Fans of the Rose Gardner mysteries need to read this book!
From the day readers first met her, Neely Kate Rivers has always been a force to be reckoned with and fierce loyal friend. Every girl needs a Neely Kate in her life. As NK is helping Rose through her grief, some of her own mysteries re-surface. This book takes Neely Kate on an unexpected journey where she discovers answers to many of her unanswered questions and finds help from unlikely sources. I found myself laughing with and cheering for Neely Kate in this wonderful final installment of the Neely Kate Mysteries.

Couldn’t put it down!

Here I am yet again underestimating DGS. I didn’t have tissues handy and I probably should have!!
Yet another fantastic book and what a way to close our NKs short series. So many questions answered and as NK would say “and then some”
I’m surprised to say that I am pretty excited to see where things go with Kate. I can’t help but root for her to come over from the dark side. I love NK’s POV. I love her relationship with each of the other characters.
This book will have you desperately aching for Rose. You can truly feel how depressed she is. We all know she’s a fighter but in this book (especially the beginning) she just isn’t herself- justifiably so.
These characters are truly a favorite of mine. I could read about them every day. Which is why I was so excited to see not one but TWO releases coming up with these characters!

I love Neely Kate

Every time I finish a DGS book, I swear it’s my favorite one. This one was no exception. Neely Kate continues on her quest to answer questions about her past and put it to rest once and for all. There were many moments where I held my breath and a few tears. Although this is the last book from NK’s perspective, I’m really looking forward to seeing more of her in future Rose books.
