Rose Gardner collects secrets the way other people collect junk—and now she’s being asked to expose them. Special Prosecutor Mason Deveraux has called a grand jury to investigate the corruption in the Sweet Branch Police Department, and he’s summoned Rose as a witness. Any topic is fair game, and the criminals in Fenton county are rightly scared of what she might share under oath.
While trying to placate the lawless men, Rose is also caring for her dying sister, Violet. Only Violet’s doctor has fled town after selling prescriptions, and Rose is sure big-time drug dealer Denny Carmichael has his hand in the situation. She has no intention of investigating, but like with a lot of her cases, clues keep falling into her lap.
Then, just when it feels like everything’s at a boiling point, Rose gets shocking news that turns her life upside down. Now, she’s not just soothing the criminals’ anxiety, but actively seeking allies for a fight she hasn’t asked for—and her enemy just might be the man she loves.
Come Rain or Shine is a 1992 Australian film about a man who becomes obsessed with a mysterious woman...
Denise does it again. Worth the wait and leaves you wanting more. A mix of emotions is hard to avoid with this read but keeps you wanting more. 55
I bought the book yesterday. And I just finished. I'm like waiting in anticipation of what's to come. Oh how I want Rose and James together 55
Someway, somehow DGS manages to pull you in and keep you riveted with the story. I have never been a big fan of series. I usually get bored, but DGC cannot write this series fast enough. 55
DGS really knows how to keep us on our toes. This book was a great page turner. I sure had a lot of emotions in the book and shed some tears but for the most part, I loved it. I’m excited to see where she will take it in the next book. Rose has definitely grown up a ton since the very first book. 55
I have read every book in this series along with the previews series and Neely Kate’s series. I have never felt so many emotions from reading, so much that I have a LITERAL emotional withdrawal after I’m done reading! If you are looking for a new book or series you will NOT regret picking this up! Tons of drama, romance and mystery! 55
Denise Grover Swank continues to wow me with her amazing writing talent every time I read one of her books. I’ve read all the Rose Gardner and Neely Kate books and absolutely love them all. This book was packed with so much excitement and mystery. I laughed and cried many times while reading this book. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. 55
HOW are these books STILL so good?! I’m drawn in to every single book. I’m always so disappointed in myself for finishing it so quickly too - I just can’t put it down! This one was just as great. This woman has a gift. 55
Very well done Denise Grover Swank! I’m on the edge of my seat with each new release. I can’t wait for more in the future! I have no idea how you keep them coming, but very thankful! 55
Loved every minute of the I cried I laughed and cried some more. Can’t wait till June 55
Denise, you have done it again. WOW! To be ready for Come Rain or Shine, I started rereading with 28 1/2 Wishes. All Rose Gardner and Neely Kate books. The book came out and I still had to finish Up Shute Creek. What a struggle to not just jump in and read Come Rain or Shine. I finished Up Shute Creek. I have since read Come Rain or Shine 3 times and then I’ve gone back to read various scenes. I’m not ready to move on. Most of the major characters in this series with the exception of Mason came from physical or emotional abusive homes. They are from poverty, middle class and wealthy homes. Mauve must cringe when she realizes that a loving home does not guarantee that a child will be able to live in love and forgiveness. Masons vindictiveness is so hard to take. Rose once again is faced with decisions that she doesn’t want to make. Denise shows how family is made up of friendship as well as blood. I am anticipating to see how Joe, Neely Kate, Jed, Johna, Hardshaw, Kate, Bruce Wayne, Brox, Marshall, Carly, Margi, Whit and even Dena continue to be involved further in Rose’s adventures and life. Thank you Denise Grover Swank. 55
Denise continues to wow us by these amazing books! I cannot wait for the next one! Such an amazing writer! 55
Wow! What an emotional roller coaster! Great book! This whole series is the best! 😍 55
Denise does it yet again! This book is everything and more!! Just when you think it’s not possible to go through every known emotion in one book, Denise is there to prove that yes in fact you can! She is one of the most gifted authors as she has the ability to get you invested in all her characters and their situations. We feel what they feel. That being said This book takes you to all kinds of places and through all kinds of feels!! Make sure you have a tissue box handy as I’m sure you’ll be needing it throughout the book. It absolutely does not disappoint and as with all of her books I’m hungrily awaiting the next installment! 55
Oh my goodness! I don’t even know where to begin. Denise has really done it again. I didn’t know what to expect with Come Rain or Shine, I was honestly a bit worried for what was to come. But it most definitely DID NOT disappoint. Rose is at a cross road...she’s got so many decisions to make and she being pulled in so many directions. The decisions she needs to make are life changing and she doesn’t know if she can handle it. But of course she keeps pushing through for the ones she loves. This book pulls you in from the very beginning and you have to hold on tight. I experienced every single emotion you could think of while reading this book and I can’t wait for the next release in this series to continue this wild ride. 55
I am already needing the next book. That’s how amazing this book was. I was hooked at the first sentence and couldn’t put it down until I finally finished it. Wow, just wow. Bravo Denise at another masterpiece. I’m in awe. 55
This book was amazing, and the only bad thing about it is now I can’t wait for the next one! It was an emotional roller coaster, and the development of Rose’s character throughout the series has been so impressive. 55
Who needs sleep anyways?! This coming from a person that loves her sleep! I couldn’t get enough of this book!!! So I just finished and I’m blown away!!! I knew it would be incredible and I was definitely not disappointed. I’m forever grateful that Denise follows her heart when her characters insist she tell their stories. This one was so much more than I could’ve ever hoped for and I’m especially happy with this turn of events. This book is beyond amazing. This book is beyond epic. This book is everything! 55
I was on a rollercoaster of emotions from the beginning. First I laughed, got mad and before I knew it I was crying and just when I thought I had calmed back down the roller coaster of emotions started all over again It’s hard to even express all the feelings that I had... you know a book it good when you are talking out loud to the characters and literally sitting on the edge of your seat with anticipation of what is getting ready to happen.. 55
This book is by far the best one in this series. Denise delivered a punch and it hit home. It is a rollercoaster of emotions throughout the book. I shed tears several times, yelled at people, and even belly laughed several times. Denise, you completely outdid yourself in this book, and I absolutely loved it. The bonus content at the end is just what I needed to read after this book. I can’t wait for the next installment and see where Rose takes us. 55
So I finished this book at 1AM today and here I am 23 hours later still trying to gather my thoughts on Come Rain or Shine. I am speechless in the best way possible. It’s hard to give many details without spoilers, but know this is a must read in the series. There were so many surprises throughout the novel and it was such an emotional roller coaster. I swooned, I laughed, I cried, I literally yelled “NO!” at my Kindle, and then I cried some more. The heartbreak is so real, but the strength of family, whether by blood or not, is so real as well. Rose continues to come into her own throughout the series and, boy, did she do it big this time! I’m so interested to see how this storyline is going to progress in the next book. 55
