Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes: A Rose Gardner Mystery
Thank you! Balancing multiple murder scenarios, ongoing criminal investigations, physic-like visions, family drama, a protagonist undergoing personal change and growth, and a mysterious and very handsome neighbor, Swank tackles a lot in this first of the Rose Gardner mysteries. Even the romance between Rose and Joe, which is inevitable and anticipated, does not fail to charm. I think a major reason for my eschewing a number of contemporary titles featuring romance and a lot of YA over the last few years has been due to my tiring of foreseeable plot twists and all-too used tropes or character stereotypes. I was totally charmed and eager to keep reading. I was interested, liked the primary and secondary characters and wanted to see this story through to its end.
She's had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone's toilet's overflowed, but she's never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect. Rose realizes she's wasted twenty-four years of living and makes a list on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt: twenty-eight things she wants to accomplish before her vision comes true. She's well on her way with the help of her next door neighbor Joe, who has no trouble teaching Rose the rules of drinking, but won't help with number fifteen-- do more with a man. Joe's new to town, but it doesn't take a vision for Rose to realize he's got plenty secrets of his own.
