Description

Book two in the New York Times best selling Rose Gardner Investigation series. 

Book two in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Rose Gardner Investigations series.

Rose Gardner is trying to build a new normal. One that leaves the Fenton County crime world—including James “Skeeter” Malcom, the current king—behind. Her best friend and roommate is a big part of that effort, but Neely Kate is busy building her own life anew. She disappeared for a few days, scaring the spit out of Rose—which is why Rose finds it impossible to deny her when she suggests they look for a missing parrot. Only this time Neely Kate isn’t interested in the reward money; she’s set them up to work with a cranky private investigator known as Kermit the Hermit. Rose sees it for what it is: another bid for them to become private investigators.

If nothing else, it’s a good distraction…until one of James’s nemeses, Buck Reynolds, comes calling for help. James’s brother has gone missing, and Wagner is number one on the crime king’s suspect list. Only, according to him, he’s innocent. 

Rose had promised herself she was through with the crime world, but she wants to see his James’s brother safe. Besides, can she really say no when she might be the only one who can keep order in the county?

Family Jewels (Rose Gardner Investigations #1)

    This is my favorite book in the series so far!! Absolute favorite. This series is so captivating that it is seriously a nail biter. I couldn't wait to see what happens next and I could not put the book down. It is definitely a page turner and that's what I love about Denise's books. I absolutely love Rose's world and there were definitely several "bombs" that were dropped in this book. Love it!!
  • Love this series

  • My favorite author...

    ...she did it again! She wrote an immaculately written book that has everything you could ever want: humor, romance and mystery. I have loved every single one of her Rose Gardner books (including the NK book as well) and it never ceases to amaze me how they keep getting better and better. I laugh, I cry and no author has ever or will ever make you love/hate the characters so much that you feel you know them in real life. My husband and I even joke that I'm always in a particularly good mood when I'm in the middle of reading one of these books. TRUST ME.. you will NOT be disappointed. It is totally worth the money and time to read all the books from the beginning (16 books, I believe). I have yet to find another series I love so much so I have decided to go ahead and reread them all again. Something else I have never done with a series. So go ahead and indulge. Fall in love with these books as I've done. No reason for me to keep all this sweet book bliss to myself. ***My ONLY complaint now is having to wait until February when the next book comes out. I'm on the literal verge of losing my mind just thinking about having to wait that long. I would definitely not mind at all being sent chapter by chapter to help keep my sanity in line (*wink wink*). So thank you Denise for these wonderful books and keep em' coming baby! =)
  • One of the best of the series yet!

    I can't believe how much I believe these book characters are living, breathing people. But somehow, I do. Maybe it is wishful thinking! Once again, a fantastic story from Denise. You won't regret buying this book/series?

    Like the others, release day can't come soon enough and I am always eagerly waiting their arrival. As usual, I couldn't put the book down! I love watching Rose gain confidence and become an independent woman. It has been fun to watch her grow. This series is my favorite by Denise, and I can't wait for the next, however it seems like it's going to be while...
