    Description

    When Rose reports for Fenton County jury duty she figures she's lucky to get out of a morning working at the DMV. Instead, despite a disastrous encounter with the new assistant district attorney, Mason Deveraux, she's picked as a juror on a murder case. As the trial progresses, she realizes an ominous vision she had in the men's restroom proves the defendant is innocent. And there's not a cotton picking thing she can do about it.

    Or is there?

    As if things weren't bad enough, Rose's older sister Violet is going through a mid-life crisis. Violet insists that Rose stop seeing her sexy new boyfriend, Arkansas state detective Joe Simmons and date other men. Rose is done letting people boss her around, but she can't commit to Joe either. Still, Rose isn't about to let the best thing in her life slip away.

    Good for the genre

    This second book in the Rose Gardner series is good for the niche into which it falls in the "cosy" genre (plucky small town heroine investigates in her own and gets herself into hilarious trouble). This type of book often seems too "precious," but the author rides the line well. The narrator's twang no longer grates as it did with the first book, but I was distracted by mistakes, such as one time when she said "detective" when "defendant" was clearly meant, and mispronunciations ("incarcenation" instead of "incarceration").

    Narrator

    The content of the book was enjoyable I did not like the narrator for this book. She sounded as if she were in her 60’s and the main character was in her 20s

    Narrator's performance - please consider do over

    Denise Grover Swank's book series are addictive, but the narration performed by Frances Fuller isn't representative of the quality customers expect from the author or audible. Words are misread, they're difficult to understand and the intonation of the narrator's speak with the same end pattern for every sentence over and over was so annoying that I almost gave up on reading and listening to the books in this series. Please consider new recordings with a decent narrator.

    Meh, Leaves Something to Be Desired

    This wasn't nearly as interesting or engaging as the first book. The narrator speaks at about a quarter of the speed and mispronounces a ton of words, if not uses the wrong ones altogether. The story seems a bit forced. I'm not sure I'll continue the series.

    Meaningless Apologies

    Her stories are very entertaining, however, naiveté will only last for so long b4 her behavior jus comes across as a plot mechanism to get her in trouble in order 2b rescued. Knowingly causing loved ones 2 worry, then a useless apology after the act is dishonest & manipulative.

    I'd still recommend the series and will read the 3rd bk but I really hope the author plans on having Rose use common sense when deliberating her future actions.

    I loved the first book! The new narrator is 50+??

    I loved the first book! I was excited about the second book in the series. Unfortunately, they switched narrators for the 2nd book. The new narrator has a 50 year old smokers voice. The main character is 24. The listener can no longer relate the voice with the characters...such a shame. I will no longer listen to or buy these books.

    Amazing Series

    This is a fast paced series. No luls or struggling to get through.
    As a matter of fact, it's very hard to make yourself take a break from listening or reading.
    This is a highly addictive series with good strong characters, laugh out loud situations, crying out loud moments and edge of your seat drama unfolding time and time again.
    I love Rose...she's funny and fun, maddening and goofy, brave and reckless, innocent and inventive and just plain interesting.
    wonderful narration too!

    The story was okay

    The performance was hard to get through. I don't think I will go any further than this in the series.

    Counting them down. No, UP

    I much prefer listening to the books in this series rather than reading. I love the accent, the hesitations, of the narrator. I especially live the mispronounced or "wrong" words thrown in! It all seems consistent with the character: a smart lady who isn't real interested in the intricacies of language and spelling--drps out of college after a semester or so. She was raised by a mother figure who resented her, made her a serving girl of sorts. So of course she hesitates and stumbles, in her speech and other areas! I get irritated with characters in books, movies, TV where a character has a background and current behavior that are totally detached from one another. Narration is a performance, not just a reading or dramatic interpretation. Perhaps the consistency I see is purely accidental, but it works! I read this book out of order, and I highly recommend you read the books of this series in order. The back story explanations are not as helpful or good as following the story in order, with detail. The characters do evolve with their experiences, and since I only get into character driven stories, that part is vital to me. Also, a back story is not always available for parts of the story I found important. Fun series. Laughs and giggles. Eye rolls, too. *smile*
