Here Come the Waterworks! This is such an amazing yet emotional book. I can’t keep myself from crying in the beginning no matter how many times I re-read it. I feel this novella was necessary to see what Joe was thinking and feeling at the end of Thirty and a Half Excuses from his own point of view and it’s also nice to see how Rose is doing after the last book. It’s the perfect space holder between Thirty and a Half Excuses and Thirty-One and a Half Regrets.

This is a very short novel to tell us Joe's perspective after the break-up with Rose. I enjoyed reading through Joe's point of view and seeing how the break-up affected him. I still don't trust Joe, but after reading the novella, it is a little clearer how deeply his father manipulates him and I actually felt a little sorry for Joe. This was a very short, very quick read but the added details from another character's POV was well worth the read.

I cannot express enough how much I loved this novella! The Rose Gardner Mysteries are told from Rose’s POV so the reader is only knows and sees things through her POV. That leaves room for a lot of bias, prejudice and misinformation. In this novella, we see the point of view of the other characters and learn what they are truly thinking and feeling. We learn more about their history, demons and hopes. It makes the whole series come alive in a way that only having Rose’s POV does not allow. I am a huge fan of backstories and what the other characters are thinking and feeling so this novella was a dream to read.

The title says it all: I fall to pieces everytime I read this novella. I love that the story is told through Rose and Joe's POV. It was great to get in Joe's head and find out what he is going through, thinking and feeling. Denise is an amazing writer and makes you feel the emotions that the characters are going through. I feel as though I am the one who is going through this emotional, heartbreaking event every time I read it. A must read after Thirty and a Half Excuses. If you haven't started the series you should do it now.

$2.99 for 90 pages, mostly a rewrite of the end of Thirty. Definitely not worth the money. The first three are lots of fun, but this was a total letdown :-(

FTP is a Rose Gardner 'between the novels' novella. There are three installments available to Denise's faithful followers aka the Street Team in this one great book. I had the pleasure of purchasing a real live copy, signed by the one and only Denise. The Rose Gardner series is one of my all time favorite books. The characters; the plot; the writing. It is one of the many reasons I fell in love with reading again. In this novella, written in three parts, you get the in between info on what characters were thinking and feeling and doing based upon the plot in Thirty and a Half Excuses.  Sorry to disappoint everyone, but I am still on Team Mason. To quote DGS, "Joe Simmons, a$$-hat charmer." I will never be a fan... and I still wish Violet would grow up. She definitely pushes her own messed up life and problems onto everyone else. Can't she be happy for Rose?? Rose also starts to come to terms with being able to take care of herself, before she can BE with anyone else... I enjoyed this novella because it gave me something to eat to tide me over while I wait for the main course release of Thirty One. I recommend anyone who loves the Rose Series to read this novella as well. Thank you to Denise!!
