The Best Series of Novels I have ever read
Reviewed in the United States on December 2, 2016
I love Rose Gardner! This series has lived up to my expectations and more! The characters are so well draw that you can lose yourself in the book and forget for awhile that they aren't real. The friendship between Rose and Neely Kate is one that we all would wish for. The relationship between Rose and James Malcolm is bittersweet. He truly sees Rose for who she is and he loves her. She sees beyond his criminal life to the man inside. I find my self wanting them together so badly yet I understand why that may never be. The interactions between Neely Kate and Jed and a possible relationship is also filled with mixed feelings. And then there is Joe. While I found myself happy for Rose when she was with Mason I couldn't help holding on to hope for Rose and Joe. I guess I still do. All of the supporting players in all of the novels and novellas are great and make the lives of the main characters so much richer and real. Bruce Wayne, Anna, Maeve. Violet, Jonas, Miss Mildred, etc. I love them all!
To illustrate just how much I love the Rose Gardner series I will tell you what I do when a new book comes out. First, I read the new book, then I go back to the beginning and read all of the others up through the newest one. Then I patiently (or not so patiently!) wait for the next one. I can't seem to get enough! If too much time is passing before the next book, I will go back and read through them all a second time. I have read them all over and over! I never get tired of reading about Rose and company. I recommend these books to anyone who loves to read or even to those who don't. The ones who don't surely will after reading all about Rose!
Thank you to Denise Grover Swank for giving readers this gift.
