Publisher Description

Neely Kate Mystery series is a companion series to the New York Times best selling Rose Gardner Investigation series. 

Neely Kate Coulson’s life is a carefully built house of cards—and now her newly discovered half-sister is threatening to collapse it. While everyone thinks Kate Simmons was neutralized when she was incarcerated in a psych ward, Neely Kate knows better. Her sister has been sending her letters threatening to expose her past, only Neely Kate has stuffed so many secrets into every available crack and cranny, she has no idea which ones could be dragged into the light. 

Growing up with an abusive, drug addicted mother taught Neely Kate to play the game—to be whoever she needs to be in whatever situation she finds herself in. But thanks to her best friend, Rose, she’s discovered she mostly prefers being herself. For the first time in her life, she has a lot to lose—a job, a plan for the future, and an adoring half-brother who happens to be the Chief Deputy Sheriff of Fenton County. But topple one card down, and all of them will fall. Everything she’s built could be lost in an instant.

Neely Kate knows she needs help, but when she reluctantly turns to Rose’s bodyguard, Jed Carlisle, she faces a far more dangerous threat—only this time her heart is on the line.

Love it!

Another fantastic book from Denise! I couldn’t put it down! I love how you can never expect what is going to happen. She has a way of sucking you in and forgetting everything around you.

Trailer Trash

Written to appeal to “the common folk”, which I am, the theme to me is quite immature and gimmicky. It reminds me of the cheap romance books I used to sneak and read of my mother’s, back in the day. I found it very lacking in a strong story line, believability of the characters, and the romance side, felt like a high school girl giving it her all. I paid $4.99 for this, which was $4.98 too much.

Talk about emotions

Neely Kate had a past but never in a million years did I think it was this. I love Neely Kate and I love the strong brave woman she is today. Most probably couldn’t get over what she went through. And Jed.... Can I have him?? Hahaha
