Thirty-Four and a Half Predicaments by Denise Grover Swank Book Summary

Book seven in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling Rose Gardner Mystery series. 

**Includes Thirty-Four and a Half Predicaments bonus chapters

Rose Gardner hates seeing her normally flamboyant best friend Neely Kate struggle with depression. So when Rose stumbles onto a piece of evidence indicating her birth mother might have been involved in a crime, she does the one thing guaranteed to cheer Neely Kate. She convinces her friend to help her solve a mystery. Though their penchant for investigating has gotten them into plenty of pickles in the past, what can go wrong if they’re looking into a case that went cold a quarter of a century ago? But the deeper they dig, the more dirt they unearth. 

While she’s busy unraveling the past, Rose must also reprise her role as the Lady in Black as part of her ongoing agreement with the king of the Fenton County underworld. In so doing, she discovers a mysterious enemy is intent on attacking her friends, and her assistant DA boyfriend might be next on the list. 

As both situations reach a boiling point, Rose must face the possibility that certain secrets were meant to remain buried and not even her special talent can get her out of every predicament.

Thirty-Four and a Half Predicaments (Denise Grover Swank) Book Reviews

Read this seriesI have the biggest book hangover!!! I don't know if I can't wait to November to find out what happens. this book was pure awesomeness!!! it was everything you expect of a Rose Gardner book. I love Rose and Neely Kate's friendship and is one of my favorite parts of the book. To see Rose just being their for her friend as she is going through a hard time was wonderful. I think they should open up their own private detective agency if the landscaping business doesn't work! This book just brought out so much emotions and that cliffhanger had me screaming, crying and wanting to throw my kindle. I can't wait to read more and to see how this whole JR solution will get resolved.Score: 5/5

Love this series so much! Best book in the series.Just finished this book and WOW! Fantastic plot and the twists & turns left me dizzy. These characters truly feel like real people to me and I don't ever want their stories to end. I read the first book one year ago & didn't realize it was it was part of a series. I have spent the last week reading what felt like one large novel. I've never had such a book hangover! Bravo. I'd love to get an advanced copy of the next book as other reviewers mentioned. 😃.Score: 5/5

Abrupt endingLoved this series until the ending of this book. The story builds up great and then comes to an abrupt, inconclusive end. Apparently you have to wait until her next book comes out to read the ending of this chapter in Rose's life. Really?!? Very disappointing. Don't bother reading this one until the next book comes out....Score: 2/5

Dark and Twisty...My heart aches for Neely Kate in this novel. Rose's world has become very dark as we discover more about JR Simmons's reach into manipulating the lives of the citizens of Southern Arkansas. Rose is determined to prevail and save her friend from the depression she has sunk into after losing her babies. So far this is the darkest of the Rose Gardner novels, but it was no less riveting and I think it makes the character more believable. As Rose is no longer sheltered in her 'cocoon' she has been forced to deal with serious issues. It shows the perseverance of the heroine and demonstrates her love and devotion to her friends. Excellent installment to the Rose Gardner series..Score: 5/5

Fun ReadsThese are fun, light books to read. I got the first book as a free series starter....nice tactic as I've been hooked ever since. Good character development and entertaining plot lines. Two complaints with this particular book 1) the editing (at least in the e book version) was poorly done. Multiple cases of sentences where a word was omitted or an extra word was left in. In addition there were several typos. Enough editing or proofing errors that it became distracting. 2) I thought the cliff hanger at the end a bit over the top. The whole ending seemed rushed. In fact I had no idea I was that close to the end until I looked at the bottom of my iPad and noticed how few pages I had left to read. The cliff hanger had me feeling a bit cheated. Loyal fans don't need to be teased into getting the next book in the series.Score: 3/5

Holy Crappy DoodlesThis series just keeps getting better and better. Denise really knows how to a great series. Rose is on another mystery. This time she goes to someone for help that I never saw coming. But will this person be able to help her, or is she going to find something that will put her in a heap of trouble? This is probably my favorite so far. There is so much suspense on this book that you can't help reading it in one sitting. If there were more stars to give then I would. I'm not going to say any more except, I need more now!!!! I don't want to wait till the fall. Get this book NOW!!!!!!.Score: 5/5

Love this series!I discovered the Rose series after reading the first book on wattpad. I loved it and just had to search for the rest of them on here! They have been some of the most addictive books I've ever read, I just get so sucked in waiting to see what happens next. I agree with another commenter though, I feel like this series needs to come to an end, as much as I don't want it to. It is an excellent series but I feel like one more book would be enough to finish everything off as it seems to be dragging out now, although I have just seen that there's meant to be another one coming out in May next year....Score: 4/5

ExcitingI've read all seven books now and the four novellas and have loved them immensely, but I feel after reading this latest book that the series really needs to end. Not a great deal happened in this book and it seems like the story is just being dragged out. It's still a great read and the story does sound like it could be coming to a head so, I'd recommend it, but be prepared to buy a lot of books in the series. Please Denise, finish the series!.Score: 3/5
