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

When Rose reports for Fenton County jury duty she figures she's lucky to get out of a morning working at the DMV. Instead, despite a disastrous encounter with the new assistant district attorney, Mason Deveraux, she's picked as a juror on a murder case. As the trial progresses, she realizes an ominous vision she had in the men's restroom proves the defendant is innocent. And there's not a cotton picking thing she can do about it. Or is there? As if things weren't bad enough, Rose's older sister Violet is going through a mid-life crisis. Violet insists that Rose stop seeing her sexy new boyfriend, Arkansas state detective Joe Simmons, and date other men. Rose is done letting people boss her around, but she can't commit to Joe either. Still, Rose isn't about to let the best thing in her life slip away.  

From Publishers Weekly

03 August 2015 – Swank's delightful second Rose Gardner mystery (after Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes) finds the daffy, accident-prone Rose up to some risky hijinks after she has one of her "visions" in the Fenton County, Ark., courthouse. In a quandary over whether to move to Little Rock to be nearer to police detective Joe Simmons, her boyfriend, the 24-year-old Rose gets a brief reprieve: jury duty. Running late because of parking problems, a broken heel, a security scan delay, plus the ladies' room being cleaned, Rose takes care of urgent business in the men's. While there, she has a psychic vision and realizes that the man on trial is not guilty. Swank makes affable Rose and company Joe, sister Violet, dog Muffy, and nosy neighbor Mildred so charming and diverting that we're willing to overlook minor improbabilities and just enjoy this romantic suspense ride-along.

Customer Reviews


Another excellent book, I'm buying the 3rd one now to read!
Highly recommended. Good story lines, and I haven't been bored once

Second on the series!

I enjoyed this one as much as the first but feel that I know the characters well enough to know what is coming next so won't be reading another. That said a good 'lite bite' but felling the need for a 'good square meal' next!


Brilliant read from start to end!
