"Why didn't you call the police?"Thirty and a Half Excuses by Denise Grover Swank. This is the third book in the Rose Gardner mystery series. I got a finished hardcover for review from Crooked Lane Books. It will be released on October 13. Here is the description from Amazon:
"You know very well why. The same reason I called you this afternoon: they hate me. And not only do they hate me, but they usually try to pin whatever's going wrong in this town on me."
Life is turned upside down in Denise Grover Swank's New York Times and USA Today bestselling series.
Henryetta is full of gossip about the arrival of a controversial televangelist, but it's the death of a little old lady on Rose's street that catches her attention. The local police deem her death to be of natural causes, but Rose suspects foul spay and so does an unlikely supporter--the president of the Busy Body Club, her eighty-two-year-old neighbor Mildred.
But Rose is in the middle of opening her nursery with her sister Violet, as well as stalling her boyfriend Joe's family of rich socialites who are determined to meet her. Add in far too many encounters with Fenton County's new assistant DA, Mason Deveraux III, and it's just another day in the life of Rose Gardner--complete chaos.
