Overview

Rose Gardner collects secrets the way other people collect junk—and now she's being asked to expose them. Special Prosecutor Mason Deveraux has called a grand jury to investigate the corruption in the Sweet Branch Police Department, and he's summoned Rose as a witness. Any topic is fair game, and the criminals in Fenton county are rightly scared of what she might share under oath.
While trying to placate the lawless men, Rose is also caring for her dying sister, Violet. Only Violet's doctor has fled town after selling prescriptions, and Rose is sure big-time drug dealer Denny Carmichael has his hand in the situation. She has no intention of investigating, but like with a lot of her cases, clues keep falling into her lap.
Then, just when it feels like everything's at a boiling point, Rose gets shocking news that turns her life upside down. Now, she's not just soothing the criminals' anxiety, but actively seeking allies for a fight she hasn't asked for—and her enemy just might be the man she loves.

Completely mesmerizing! **Disclaimer – Once you start this book you WILL NOT be able to put it down! This is the 5th book in the Rose Garner Investigations series, and man, does this book make me feel all of the emotions! Over the past 4 years I have been keeping up with the folks in Henryetta (and I love them and love to hate some, too). Every time there is word of a new installment coming out I feel like a little kid on Christmas. I can’t wait to rip open the book and immerse myself in the world that Denise has so thoughtfully created. Talk about a book that rips your heart out! Be sure to have a box of tissues nearby because, if you have grown to love Rose and her friends and family, you will need it. There are so many things that happen in this book that I don’t want to say and give any spoilers. I finished the book in one day and spent the next day trying to wrap my head around what I just read. Once again, this one knocks it out of the park. I cannot wait to read Dirty Money when it comes out. In the meantime, I may have to go back, get out a new box of tissues and re-read Come Rain or Shine. (Why is this not a TV series yet???)

My review cannot do this book justice, but I will try...this book is truly outstanding! Come Rain or Shine brings out every emotion I could possibly have. Mason calls a grand jury to investigate police department corruption. He calls Rose as a witness, and she is terrified to be put under oath and forced to share her secrets and knowledge with the jury. So much goes in on this book with James and Violet, and lots of questions are answered while also leaving us with new cliffhangers. Corruption in town at a local doctor's office leads to a mystery that needs to be solved, and Rose is hot on the case. Rose receives shocking news that turns her life upside down and changes everything! How will she cope and who will end up on her side? All of these characters have been through so much and come so far, and Denise makes me feel like I’m a part of their world. I have so many emotions invested in this series, specifically this book. I can’t wait for Dirty Money to find out what happens next!

DGS really knows how to keep us on our toes. This book was a great page turner. I sure had a lot of emotions in the book and shed some tears but for the most part, I loved it. I'm excited to see where she will take it in the next book. Rose has definitely grown up a ton since the very first book. I feel like every new book is better than the last. Definitely love Rose!

I can not even begin to process all of the feels I have for and from this book! I have never before been as completely consumed by a series as this one. When I grow up, I want to be just like Rose! Thank you so much, DGS, for once again bringing us the best of the best.

Fabulous book that compliments this whole series. Denise is an talented author who knows how to keep a reader guessing with her stories and characters. I will forever be a Rose Gardner fan, but more importantly, a Denise Grover Swank fan. If you are on the fence- give one of her books a try- you will be hooked!! I love the character Rose Gardner and all of the supporting cast in this series. You will fall in love with them too! This pivotal book really opens up some new story lines and keeps the reading guessing what will happen next.

This book is beyond amazing! Epic. The most anticipated book of all the Rose books. And it was so worth waiting! A total whirlwind of all the possible emotions. Yes, I admit I've been laughing, crying (more than anything else), upset, angry, shocked,surprised, yelling and more.. I've been preparing myself to anything happening in this book (that's what I thought) but Denise proved it was not enough even though I knew it won't be enough. She is the master of telling the stories of her character's lives - yes, I believe they live their own lives and Denise put it in to words to make it available for us to read! That's a great TALENT! I love the way this story goes even if my silly heart disagrees.. I think there's no need to say I couldn't put it down even if I wanted to make it last longer. Haven't read it yet? Just grab it and prepare yourself for a wild ride! And, don't forget to read the Bonus scene at the end of book! You'll be amazed more!

Wow!!! Left absolutely speechless!! Five stars all the way! I know I say this about every new Rose Gardner book that comes out but this is my new favorite. Things weren’t all sunshine and rainbows but this was such an emotional book and I couldn’t put it down. I cried at least seven times, laughed out loud at least five or six, and gasped at many parts. I am so emotionally invested in this series it isn’t even funny and it’s all thanks to the amazing writing and the constant development of characters. Come Rain or Shine is changing Rose’s whole life and I absolutely cannot wait to see where the series is heading after this. There is so much more I want to know and read about and I do not ever want to see this series end. There may already be many books in this series but they are all different and new. There is not one part of this series, or the previous one, that I can say is boring or feels repetitive and I absolutely love that. Come Rain or Shine had so many twists and turns that I could not guess where it was going and that is the best kind of book to read. I will try my best to patiently wait for the next book.

Absolutely awesome book. I can never get enough from this series. And the amount of events, twists and turns packed into this book is unreal. The writing is so good you get sucked right into all the characters lives, laughing and crying along with them. Cannot wait to see what is next for Rose, and the rest of the group.

Things To Do Before Starting This Book: 1. Get a big drink and put it next to your reading chair. 2. Put a box of tissue there, too 3. Turn off your phone. 4. Order a pizza so the kids won't need you to cook dinner. 5. Hang a "Closed" sign on your door so no one will bother you. So good! Just fantastic. Rose Gardner is a favorite, and the series just gets better and better. Denise Grover Swank knows what she's doing and she takes you on a fun, funny, scary, emotional, devastating, hopeful ride this time out. Since I don't want to spoil it for you, just know that this installment of the Rose Gardner Investigations series really ups the game and moves things along at a breakneck pace. Whether the book leaves you teary-eyed, heartbroken, hopeful, or completely stressed out (as it did me!) it is absolutely going to affect you. Things To Do After You've Read This Book: 1. Take a few deep breaths, in and out, and pull yourself together. 2. Refill that big drink and maybe add some booze to calm you down. 3. Give rave reviews of Come Rain or Shine on every platform you can! (You'll want to, trust me.) 4. Call your best friend and tell them to read this book. 5. Get something to eat, then start reading it again. Seriously, this book is that good. Well done, Ms. Swank. Keep 'em coming; I'm already chomping at the bit for the next one.

Outstanding!!! I am still in shock after finishing this book. Denise did not disappoint at all, and continues to write amazing storylines that will have you at the edge of your seat, holding your breath and not even realizing it. My emotions are all over the place, I'm not even sure what to think right now. Rose's character continues to grow in so many ways. I love the strong and independent woman she has become. She has overcome so much since the first book and I am excited to see how it all plays out. Please do yourself a favor and pick up this book. If you haven't started from the beginning, do it! I promise you won't regret it.

Who needs sleep anyways?! This coming from a person that loves her sleep! I couldn’t get enough of this book!!! I just finished and I’m blown away!!! I knew it would be incredible and I was definitely not disappointed. I’m forever grateful that Denise follows her heart when her characters insist she tell their stories. This one was so much more than I could’ve ever hoped for and I’m especially happy with this turn of events. This book is beyond amazing. This book is beyond epic. This book is everything!
