The final book of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling Rose Gardner Investigations series. 

When a body shows up south of Henryetta, Rose knows trouble is on the horizon. Rufus Wilson worked for the county crime lord, Skeeter Malcolm, and she soon discovers Wilson had a special skill set—he could crack safes. 

Now everyone is looking for Wilson’s girlfriend, including Rose, and it doesn’t take her long to realize Wilson’s murder might actually be connected to something else, something bigger. Hardshaw Group, a Dallas crime syndicate, is meeting a South American drug cartel in the county, only no one knows the time and place. 

Denny Carmichael’s drug empire has a lot to lose if they move in, so now he’s calling in the favor he insists Rose owes him—find him the time and location. Or else. 

Rose is a hair’s breadth away from losing everyone she loves, including her six-week-old daughter, and she’ll do anything she can to save them.


  • Coming full circle

    By Jami Caven
    To be honest, I had my doubts about how well things were going to be wrapped up. But really, one should never doubt the amazing Denise Grover-Swank. She managed to wrap it up with a happy ending that wasn’t unrealistic or cheesy like most novels. Having Rose end is extremely heartbreaking (I even ugly cried when I finished), but ultimately I understand, even if I feel a bit lost at the moment. This has been, and will continue to be, my favorite series of all time.. one that I brag on every chance I get. Thank you Denise for giving me a storyline I loved, characters I viewed as friends, and my love for reading in general. I’m not sure I would’ve found my love for reading if not for this series so I owe you big time. You’ve got a top fan for life ❤️
  • Do yourself a favor and read this series!!!

    Seriously one of the best series I have ever read! You will fall in love with the characters, the town, and the story. The series has twists and turns and you will not be able to put the book down! This book is filled with love, hope, redemption, forgiveness all the while uncovering a mystery. I LOVED it!!!
  • Bittersweet; PSA spoiler alert review!!

    By Stphzvla
    Every book, including the bonuses that have been published with Rose Gardner, I have binge read within a day or two! If this is a spoiler alert I apologize in advance!! I’m so sad that this is really the end of the series but I am so happy with how it ended. It really was like a full circle, which Rose Gardner had mentioned in this book. I’ll miss reading about her and her family and collection of misfits she recruited, but like the author says she deserves happiness and I’m a sucker for happy endings! Thank you Denise! You did an amazing job on this ending

  • A beautiful wrap

    By CassLandy15
    I’ve read every Rose book and I’m deeply in love with her strength. I’m so sad to be done reading about her, but also excited for the day I start the series all over again. And I’m also so in love with the Carly Moore series, I hope there are a few more books to come. Well done Denise, you are truly my favorite author.
  • Beautiful

    By Jehsicka
    A beautiful way to end the series. I am incredibly sad that it was the last book, but it couldn’t have ended for Rose in a better way. Denise has a way of pulling me into her books and I don’t think there has been one book of hers that I have not loved!
  • Why did it have to end 😫

    By JenaSage
    What a great book! I cried! What a great ending! Though I didn’t want it to end, I understand why it was time! And part of me wished for it to end the other way!
  • You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, & if you were team James...

    By Beach girl 910
    This book, this series made me love reading again. I love Roses world. I was one of those hard core team James fans. I really would rather imagine she chose James & is living happily ever after with him. However, Denise made a wonderful book. I’m sad to see her world close but I’m glad it ended on a happily ever after note. Rose deserved it after all she saw her self dead and it was never easy going after that. On another note Denise you wrote a wonderful book. You careful considered ever reader and how we wanted it to end. You gave a happy ending to most of the main character. (Never liked Kate lol) I love the Carly series. I’ll be hopeful Rose may come up again so we can see how her and her best friend tackle motherhood.
  • James deserved better

    By colieejulieee
    I absolutely loved this book and all of the ones before. I’ve been reading it for years! However James was one of my favorite characters and he deserved better! He became the person we all wanted him to be and he still gets life? I’ll be upset about that forever. Also I refuse to believe this whole story line happened over the course of two years.
