Up Shute Creek

Book four in the New York Times bestselling Rose Gardner Investigations series. 
Rose Gardner feels like she’s up a creek without a paddle. Her sister is dying, her secret boyfriend, James Malcolm, is struggling to protect the county underworld from an upstart drug dealer, and her ex has moved back to town with a bee in his bonnet and a mission to root out corruption in the county. To make matters worse, Neely Kate is in dire straits too—the past she’s spent years trying to forget has finally caught up to her, with horrific fallout. They’re in the thick of danger, and everyone’s quick to tell them they’d do best to hunker down and keep to themselves.
 
But mysteries have a way of finding Rose and Neely Kate. A mother contacts them about finding her missing teenage daughter the same day they find a different young woman stranded by the side of the road. They know they should turn down the case, just as they should ignore the signs that the woman with the broken down car is running from something, but for Rose and Neely Kate, curiosity will always have a stronger call than danger.

Best one yet5 star

I have read this series from the very first Rose Gardner book and this was the best one yet. I can’t wait for the next one and now understand why we had to wait so long between books. 55

Amazing5 star

Denise Grover Swank never ceases to disappoint! This book is amazing and reminds me a lot of the earlier books. Rose and James’s relationship leaves readers hopeful for the future. Neely Kate shares her dark past with Rose. Rose is learning that she no longer can separate herself with lady and she is thinking about that in every decision she makes and it honestly makes her stronger than ever. I love the person that Violet has turned into be. And I have fell in love with Joe in this book, he has turned into the Joe McAllister we fell in love with in the beginning! All in all this book is a great read as is the whole Rose Gardner series!! Definitely did not disappoint!! 55

My favorite author of all time..5 star

..and trust me I’ve read a crap load of books over the years. All the others begin to bore me to death and usually I won’t even finish the series itself. But with the Rose Gardner books, I cannot get enough. I’m literally saddened when I finish a book and overjoyed when a new one finally comes out. Best believe I pre-order her books every time and keep track of the dates up until they are released. I will admit I was VERY upset having to wait for the last two due to postponing but I seemed to have forgotten that the author behind these amazing books might have something else incredibly more important. I’m a total a-hole for that one and feel awful for being impatient. So to my favorite author if you happen to read this- Your daughter and your own health are far more important. I’m happy to hear that you are doing better and that you felt compelled to share your outside life with us which you didn't have to do. No matter how long it takes, I will wait for your books. I’ve never loved reading something so much and I appreciate all the hard work you do. 😘 55

Another amazing book by DGS! From beginning to end, I couldn’t put it down. Always love to read what new mystery/problem Rose and NK are trying to solve or get themselves out of. 55
