Description

Book eight in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling Rose Gardner Mystery series.

Rose Gardner has survived plenty of close scrapes in the past, but her latest bit of trouble has landed her in the Fenton County holding cell on trumped up charges. The most powerful man in southern Arkansas, J.R. Simmons, is determined to put her behind bars for good and destroy everything she holds dear, including her boyfriend, Mason, and her friend Skeeter, reigning king of the Fenton County crime world. In a stunning betrayal, it seems as if J.R.’s son, Rose’s ex-boyfriend, might have turned tail and joined his father.

But Rose doesn’t have to face this fight alone. Her tight-knit group of friends is dedicated to helping her figure out—and foil—J.R.’s plan for ruining her, Mason, and Skeeter. But even with their support and the use of her special power, Rose is at a disadvantage. J.R. is a criminal mastermind who has been using his money, power, and web of influence to hide his conspiracies for years. How can she hope to find solid evidence implicating someone who’s mastered the art of not getting caught? 

Time is running out, and soon Rose realizes that reassuming her role of the Lady in Black might be her only chance at ferreting out the evidence that will save them all. In so doing, she will risk not only her life, but the possibility that her secret identity will be unveiled to all.

    The best so far… Once again, Rose seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. While her current boyfriend, Mason, supports her, her ex-boyfriend, Joe, thinks she has somehow caused the trouble herself. Rose inadvertently gets mixed up in the Henrietta underground crime world while trying to recover her stolen money. We meet other interesting characters and get to know Neely Kate even more. So far this was my favorite book in the series partly because Rose really demonstrates her strength and her ability to stand up to other characters, even her sister. I love this series.
  • They just keep getting better!!!

    This series is my all time favorite. They keep getting better and better. I haven't lost interest while reading not one time. I am hoping Denise keeps writing and doesn't take to long in between books because I am about to start the last one now.
  • Loved this book

    I have loved this series from the beginning. I have enjoyed Rose's journey of transformation throughout the series and in 35 she proves that she is no longer a push over. 35 picks up hours after 34 ended, with Rose sitting in jail, feeling she has been betrayed by a past love and her loves one trying to find a way to get her out. Once Rose gets out of jail she realizes that she is the only person who can save herself and in the process save the people she cares for the most. What I have loved about this series is that the main point is Rose's growth and everything else is secondary. Rose is learning to be a strong independent women. No longer afraid of what people think of her, refusing to cower to others intimidation and fighting for what she wants. In 35 we finally see Rose become the women the readers all knew she was capable of. While 35 finally answers some questions we have been dying to know, there is still old questions left unanswered and new one to be discovered. I have a feeling 36 is going to be one wild ride, but one I know Rose can handle
  • Awesome book!!!

    The most riveting, engrossing, suspenseful Rose yet. I tried to put it down to delay getting to the end (as I did not want it to end) but,yeah, that lasted all of about 30 seconds. More. Must. Have. More.
  • The whole series is the best!!!

    I am so sad that I didn't know this series was unfinished when I began reading! I finished all of the novels within a week and now I have to wait months for the next story. I give props to the readers who have been around longer than me, I don't know if I could handle it! That being said, another fantastic novel! I love that J.R. is met and taken care of ;) (No spoilers, take that how you will.) Cannot wait for the next novel!
