Summary

Book eight in the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Rose Gardner Mystery series.

Rose Gardner has survived plenty of close scrapes in the past, but her latest bit of trouble has landed her in the Fenton County holding cell on trumped-up charges. The most powerful man in Southern Arkansas, J. R. Simmons, is determined to put her behind bars for good and destroy everything she holds dear, including her boyfriend, Mason, and her friend, Skeeter, reigning king of the Fenton County crime world.

In a stunning betrayal, it seems as if J. R.'s son, Rose's ex-boyfriend, might have turned tail and joined his father. But Rose doesn't have to face this fight alone. Her tight-knit group of friends is dedicated to helping her figure out - and foil - J. R.'s plan for ruining her, Mason, and Skeeter. But even with their support and the use of her special power, Rose is at a disadvantage. J. R. is a criminal mastermind who has been using his money, power, and web of influence to hide his conspiracies for years. How can she hope to find solid evidence implicating someone who's mastered the art of not getting caught?

Time is running out, and soon Rose realizes that reassuming her role of the Lady in Black might be her only chance at ferreting out the evidence that will save them all. In so doing, she will risk not only her life but the possibility that her secret identity will be unveiled to all.

As usual Denise makes you laugh and breaks your heart

I love Rose and her friends. Denise writes this so well! The plot is great in this whole series! But as Rose works to protect her boyfriend she also breaks your heart! The performance is great! Now on to the next book.

Wow!!

This book is amazing!! What a roller coaster! I am still trying to process everything that happened!!

I literally read this book nonstop! Every chance I had to read the next sentence, paragraph I would read whether I was at a stop light, dr office, etc.

This is the 8th installment/book of the Rose series and it is the best one yet!! I became a big fan of the Rose Gardner series from the very beginning. I'm usually not a fan of book series that have several books but this is one of my favorites! Each book has its own mystery and it's never the same, it keeps you on your toes guessing what may happen but then BAM you are so wrong!
I absolutely love how Denise Grover Swank makes you fall in love with the main characters and oh my stars she has a way of making each of those characters tug at your heart as well. The main character, Rose-she has grown so much and has matured a lot in this book. She's finally becomes one with lady in black. The lines have finally been blurred.

Sick of Mason and Joe! Don't know what it says about me but Skeeter's character is really very likeable, crime king or not. lol
