At least, I am relieved I didn't actually pay money for this, but sad that I did not own any physical copy of it, because every time I have had to read the protagonist say 'crappy doodles' I nearly smashed my mobile phone against the wall. Fortunately, I was able to hold myself back. In the very beginning, Rose is bedeviled by visions of her own upcoming death, something which leaves her irritated because up to now, she always only experienced paranormal visions of smaller things like losing her keys and finding them with a vision's help. So far, so good. Then her mother is killed early on and since Rose unfortunately managed to decide to become independent from her mother that very same day, she gets into the focus of the murder investigation. Why should the police be interested in the fact that Rose has an alibi? Oh, yes, they would have appeared competent, something the author desperately tried to avoid throughout the course of the story. Enter Joe McAllister, the mysterious guy from Rose's neighbourhood who seems to be the only one to believe in her innocence. You don't have to possess visionary abilities to guess where the path for Rose and Joe is leading towards. All in all, the premise was interesting, and to be honest, I was captured by the first fifty percent of the story and read them in one sitting.

I could understand why Rose, the daughter that stayed behind to care for the cruel mother, was the way she was, and why her sister 'the one who got away' was the way she was too. I liked how the dynamic plays out later in the book between the sisters and found them particularly engaging. The characters are very real. Sometimes they infuriate you or make you slap her head, while in the next scene make you giddy, or a little teary.

Klanten die dit item hebben gekocht, kochten ook The book is often witty and Rose's take on situations are sometimes laugh out loud funny.

There are some twists and many secrets revealed throughout the book. Some more unexpected than others, but once revealed, you definitely feel an 'ah-ha' moment.

The scenes are described beautifully, never with more description than needed, which is just what I like. I've been known to only glaze over overly descriptive passages in most of the books I read, so this was a definite plus for me. Karen B Because the cops in that town are bored.

I found the story itself to be unbelievable and, at times, ridiculous. The "country bumpkin" heroine was unappealing to me. I listened to the Audible version and it was nearly unbearable for me. I'm sure it was the story, but I felt like I was trapped in some sort of redneck nightmare. If that is what the narrator was aiming for, they succeeded. If it weren't for my compulsive need to finish every book that I start, this would've been a DNF for me.

It seems, again, I am the only one in the world who thinks this book is pretty unextraordinary. It was a simple enough little story. Southern states gurl who has always been controlled by her mother, mother dies, she is the main suspect, puts together a really tame bucket list to achieve before she gets arrested.

And I have absolutely no problem with weird vision things in books - sign me up for weird fantasy sci-fi supernatural vision stuff any day - but Rose never looks into what could possibly be causing this psychic power.

But then maybe that's because Rose is an idiot. I'm sorry but it's true. Rose is possibly one of the most spineless characters I have ever met in literature. She allows herself to be bullied continuously, first by her mother, then her sister, and she always does whatever her aunt says.

C'mon, her mother was murdered, a mysterious flash drive is mentioned continuously, and there is your stereotypical mysterious male lead next door, who is clearly holding beaucoup beaucoup de secrets.

Sex is the solution! I'm not even exaggerating. Rose doesn't try to solve these mysteries. She just hankers after her hot next door neighbour.

Then everything turned to becoming boring, unrealistic and simply annoying.

In general, I am not averse to romance in mystery stories, but this one felt forced and unnatural, and the metamorphosis from the ugly duckling to the proud swan is a motif I've been fatigued by long ago. The mystery was fairly uninteresting because of the main villain's lazy characterization the only things I remember about him are his name and the fact that he was supposed to play the villain part , and the writing felt poorly executed and uninspired. Not even the possibility of fighting the visions Rose had was included, resulting in me being annoyed by the heroine after a very short amount of chapters and finally regretting to have wasted my time with this e-book.

I was looking for the thing at the bottom of the gun. After a lot of fumbling and, I hate to admit it a little bit of cussing, I got it opened. Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes is some serious good fun. Rose has the gift of the second sight. Unfortunately, most of her predictions are more along the lines of toilets overflowing and dogs getting out of yards than anything really useful.

Then one Friday afternoon she has a vision of her own death, and her life becomes a mad house. Her mother is murdered and she is the main suspect; gangsters are gunning for her; the police are about to arrest her; and her sexy neighbor seems intent on imposing himself on her in the biblical sense.

If you look at my books, you'll see a lot of interesting female characters. It's one of the things I look for in a book. In that long list, Rose Gardner is something a little more than most.

She's kind of a top shelf heroine. I'll definitely be looking for more of this series. View all 4 comments. Nov 05, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: Downloaded for free from site. I did like her though, and I felt quite sorry for her with everything that was going on.

The ending to this was a bit of a cliff-hanger. This book is hugely popular by most reviews I've read but sadly I found the book whilst light hearted also impossible to believe, it was a bit too much on the sickly sweet side, I think when the words "crappy doodle" were spoken before my eyes, printed in text I knew then it was time to cut my losses and go. It does have some humour and I can imagine fans of slightly offbeat southern romantic chick lit would love this, I decided not to finish with half a book to go, each to their own.

Gag me with a spoon. I was one of the few folks who had the opportunity to review this book as an ARC. Not being familiar with Sookie Sackhouse or any of the southern mystery genre I knew it might be a stretch for me to get into this novel and character.

However, Denise Grover Swank hooked me right into the story from the first sentence! I think the first time I read it I read the whole thing in one sitting. The quirky southern heroin has just the right mixture of everything! Seriously, she is funny, heartwarming, a I was one of the few folks who had the opportunity to review this book as an ARC. I find myself picking up this book more then once a week and reading chapters all over again.

Just to visit Rose and her crazy Mamma. For a debut novel, Denise Grover Swank has set the bar high for future Rose Gardner Mysteries and any other series she chooses to share with the world who will eagerly read. View 2 comments. Apr 21, Jacob Proffitt rated it liked it Shelves: This was a really tough read for me.

Rose is 24, but she has been sheltered more than a first edition Star Wars action figure still in the original packaging. The story starts when the wrapping comes off and we get to see her make lots of poor choices. Only not the ones you'd expect for someone so sheltered first exploring the world. She doesn't go on a wild bender, trashing hotels and scaring small children. And it might have worked fine if at least some of those decisions didn't feel manipulated to drag out the story more.

Most of my frustration had to do with Joe and Rose each deciding not to level with the other. And every single one broke the same way i. Half of those points followed the same script: In each case, all person B had to do was say "oh? I nearly tore actual hair out in frustration each time after the first. What kept me going is that Rose is an interesting character and Joe was great for her and I really wanted them to get together and conquer bad guys.

Also, I was listening to this on audible and Frances Fuller delivers the whole thing with the kind of Southern lilt that I find deeply alluring.

It's a weakness, I know, and it worked to the book's benefit in this case. Anyway, I'm going with three stars, though my frustration makes me want to go lower. But the story was interesting and I was engaged by the plot and character developments, and I'm more than a little interested in seeing where the series goes from here I truly hope Swank doesn't screw up the relationship between Joe and Rose.

A note about genre: This is really hard to categorize genre-wise. It's not straight romance and the suspense isn't strong enough to be romantic suspense. The plot holds together and at least one final twist was a neat little blind-side so I enjoyed that. It's clearly not NA so I haven't tagged it as either, but I worry because it does read rather young.

There's some mild steam, though no explicit sex. Sex clearly happens, but Swank pulls the curtains pretty quick when it actually manifests.

Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes by Denise Grover Swank

So not enough steam for Steamy, but too much for Chaste. So I went with neither tag. I generally find that frustrating, but in this case I thought it worked pretty well. Rose is off her leash and experimenting but we don't need the details because details aren't important to the relationship development. That does contribute to the YA feel, but at least it's consistent in that tone I love a great mystery!!

And Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes was just that. Rose was instantly likable. She was quirky, nieve and sheltered - with a crazy mom. What does one do with a character like that? Have her think she's going to die. Instantly I was pulled into the world. All the characters were unique and had their own quirks. Rose's character grew through the story and was believable. She reminded me a little of Janet Evanovich's character, Stephanie Plum, the way she had c I love a great mystery!!

She reminded me a little of Janet Evanovich's character, Stephanie Plum, the way she had crazy stuff happen to her, her reactions, her penchant for getting into trouble, her humor. And Muffy added enjoyment to the story, as well. Can't forget Joe ;o Lots of twists and turns and "oh no she didn't's" in this story.

Enough to keep me turning the --pushing the page button on my Kindle. Swank's writing is superb. I love her voice. Read this one, folks!!!! Jun 02, Obsidian rated it it was ok Shelves: This book was not that engaging.

We follow Rose Gardner through several hundred pages and get to read how she reacts to everything around of her, instead of taking any ownership or showing any intelligence after she starts being investigated for the murder of her mother.

There is a paranormal aspect to this book, but honestly it isn't treated consistently through the book, and it added nothing, so for anyone looking for a paranormal cozy read, I would skip this one. It would be easy to become sy This book was not that engaging.

You hear about her horrible childhood due to her mother and even with everything her mother has done to her and her sister Violet. However, Rose is passive aggressive with everyone after her mother dies. She starts feeling resentful of her sister Violet because she is trying to keep her safe and wants her to come and live with her and her family.
