Still loving the series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons (Rose Gardner Mystery Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Ok so we pick up not long after the ending of the first book.
Although I still love Rose and Joe, what's great about this book is the introduction of some new characters, specifically Mason and Neely Kate. I LOVE Neely Kate. She is introduced as a new best friend for Rose and as Rose is a woman who hasn't really had girlfriends before, I am so happy for her. Especially because Neely Kate is the kind of best friend we all want; gossipy, fun and a heart of gold. Mason is the new DA in town and him and Rose immediately clash- literally. But you can feel sparks there buried underneath his brash exterior. And he doesn't step on Joe's toes too much so he's likeable as another male character and possible love rival.
The story line of the court case, as in the first novel, gives the suspenseful nature of the book a good pace and adds more layers to what could be just another boring romance novel.
Well worth reading the entire series.
