Book Six in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestselling Rose Gardner Mystery series

Rose is called into action when Neely Kate’s cousin goes missing and the police refuse to take it seriously. But while the authorities—Rose’s ex-boyfriend, included—are certain the missing woman has run away, mounting evidence points to foul play. Rose agrees to help her friend, even if it means partaking in Neely Kate’s shenanigans, including an impromptu trip to a strip club.

And because trouble never comes without a guest, Skeeter Malcolm, Fenton County’s newly crowned underground king, resurfaces, saying he needs Rose’s visionary gift to track down his enemies. He makes her the only offer she can’t refuse: The guaranteed safety of her assistant DA boyfriend, Mason Deveraux, who is being threatened by forces unknown. The Fenton County law enforcement is still abuzz about the infamous Lady in Black, who took part in the underground auction that earned Skeeter his crown. Can Rose risk a reprisal of her role?

As the stakes continue to rise and the search for Neely Kate’s cousin becomes increasingly complicated, Rose must struggle to keep both her secret identity and her sanity.

I think that as the series goes on, the books are losing their quality. And the fact that there has been six books & time has only lapsed like 6 months is absolutely terrible. It'll take forever for a year to go by and it's just dragging on. The ending was inconclusive, the book was mostly like the last one, & there was nothing really amazing about it. I hope she does better because waiting months for a book this bad was a disappointment.

Rose continues to excite...

Rose continues to grow and her involvement in the Henrietta underground crime world is getting deeper. It seems like Rose is getting in a little over her head, but she will stop at nothing if it means guaranteeing the safety of her boyfriend, Mason. Even if she has to make a deal with Skeeter Malcolm. As the series progresses, each book seems to be getting more and more complex. I can't wait to see where the series goes next.

Great Series

Denise Grover Swank does it again. You would think that after 6 novels and three novellas you would be tried of Rose Gardner and her crazy group of friend, but your not. Each book is amazing awesome and leaves you wanting more of Rose and her life.

Rose's life is not quieter or less complicated then when it all began. Sometimes I think Rose needs a vacation from Fenton, but have a feeling trouble would just follow her wherever she went. Rose is truly a magnet for trouble, but I wouldn't want it any other way.

What I love about Rose is her fiercenss and loyalty to the people she cares about. She doesn't hold grudges or judget the people in her life. Her friendship with Neely Kate is wonderful to see in a book. Women can be portrayed as frenimes or have some sort of level of cattines, but these two are true best friend soulmates and their journey in this book is truly special.
