Very good narration

The narration of this book is excellent. The story, the last in this series, is full of suspense, excitement, and great characters.

Love the characters and the book and the series

Of course being a Rose Gardner Mysteries groupie I love this book. Denise keeps you on the edge of your headphones. But the story and the characters grab your heart and wring it dry! Shannon McManus does such a great job! Love her doing the books.!I hope she continues with the books that follow on with these same characters.

No longer a must have series

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

There was zero romance in this book! It went from a quirky, fun mystery romance series to a monotonous murder book. The mystery was boring, the outcomes excessively violent and the plot to keep any romance from happening was forced (Neely Kate and Ronny, Rose and Mason, Rose and Skeeter, etc.) These books used to make me happy. Now I feel depressed by the end.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Sandra Browns latest, hands down! I also put Catherine Coulter's newest Sherlock and Savage book on hold and can't wait to get back to it!

What does Shannon McManus bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is amazing! The best thing about this book! Her voice is so pleasant and she has perfect variation for each character without making any characters annoying. Love her!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

For sure...the closure on the JR Simmons issue finally happened.

Last but not least

This was a great final wrap up of Rose's story and a great lead in to her next chapter of life. I will say I find the long pauses between chapters to be very annoying.
