TWENTY-EIGHT AND A HALF WISHES: When Rose sees a vision of her murder, she’s done frittering her life away and makes a list. Her sexy neighbor Joe offers to help yet refuses to cooperate with #15-- do more with a man. But time’s running out and suddenly dying a virgin in the county jail becomes the least of her worries.--winner of the Write Touch Readers' Award 2012

TWENTY-NINE AND A HALF REASONS: Rose thinks a jury summons means a morning off from work, until she sees a vision of the murderer in the men’s restroom: a huge problem since the murderer isn’t the one on trial. If that weren’t enough, Rose is caught between her sister Violet and her new boyfriend Joe. Henryetta, Arkansas just got messier. –USA Today Bestseller

FALLING TO PIECES: (novella) Rose struggles with heartbreak with the support of her new friends while Joe gets support from someone in his past.


Customer Reviews

In love with this series

I wish it could turn movie, but not done Hollywood style....strictly book style. The words wrap me up and I get lost. Love them.

Must have collection

Love this series. Once you read the first book you can't help but want to read the rest.
Great story and well written.


So instead of buying each book separately of the series, buy this!!! It'll save you money, and you have 4 books in one! :) As a review for the Rose Gardner mysteries so far, they are fantastic! It's a mix of great romance, mystery and suspense. Perfect combination this author is able to combine using her skills! I got addicted since book 1, and read the entire series up to its latest book released with just a few days! The only bad I can say, is that some parts seemed rushed, as you'll notice spelling errors, too. Other than that, it's an awesome Y.A. series! I love Rose, her detailed romance with Joe, and all of the clues that you come across while reading leading up to the big mystery ending. Also each book is intertwined together, so you can't skip any! I like the short novella (last book so far in this combo deal), as it leaves you off with a great perspective on Rose while we wait to continue onto the next book in the series (and it shows you what other characters are doing/feeling by being narrated through their eyes, too! The only book of the series that did that so far...). I'm excited to see the next sequel of Rose and what happens! I'm hoping we get it as part of this combo deal, as it is listed in the description, but was not yet released. :) Worth reading, I swear!
