Description

The first book in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling Rose Gardner Mystery series.

For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She's had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone's toilet's overflowed, but she's never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.

Rose realizes she's wasted twenty-four years of living and makes a list on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt: twenty-eight things she wants to accomplish before her vision comes true. She's well on her way with the help of her next door neighbor Joe, who has no trouble teaching Rose the rules of drinking, but won't help with number fifteen-- do more with a man. Joe's new to town, but it doesn't take a vision for Rose to realize he's got plenty secrets of his own.

Somebody thinks Rose has something they want and they'll do anything to get it. Her house is broken into, someone else she knows is murdered, and suddenly, dying a virgin in the Fenton County jail isn't her biggest worry after all.

    I’m a new reader of Denise’s books, but I absolutely love what I’ve read so far. I’ve been a Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown, Danielle Steel and others reader. But I’m reading yours back to back. Thank You for the great reads. Joyce

    I absolutely loved this book. I had a hard time putting it down. It was a fun, easy flowing, mystery book. I had kinda guested a few things but I love how it made me second guess some of what I thought was gonna happen. I love the characters and the story line. I also loved following Rose as she "blossoms" into herself as a person. It was a great world to get lost into.
  • MUST READ

    My close friends mother actually recommended this book to me and you know I'm used to people showing me books and some times them not being good. So I was okay, I also went with her to meet to author and Denise is super sweet and nice, I loved her. But I had my face stuck in my phone reading this book through out penned con. The more I got into the book the more I just loved the characters and got into it and was super excited to read the next one. I highly recommend anyone who loves romance and mystery to read this book. The romance is incredibly refreshing and it blossoms beautifully. I highly recommend it.

    I haven't had much time to read lately (I have four daughters), but I just couldn't put this book down until I was done!!! I loved the mystery, the twists and turns that kept me wishing the day had more than 24 hours, and the ending!!! I simply cannot wait to start reading the next book!!! Thank you for bringing my reading days back!!! This was totally worth my time!!!
