Rose Gardner Mystery Novella #6.5 in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling series. <br>
After her assistant DA boyfriend’s near brush with death, Rose Gardner hopes to make it through the holiday season with a minimal amount of drama. But she can’t forget the promise she made to the king of the Fenton County underworld in exchange for Mason’s life. What’s worse, she’s not the only one keeping secrets—Mason has been working on a hush-hush case in his private time, Joe is grappling with the sudden reappearance of his sister after a mysterious two-year disappearance, and Hilary continues in her single-minded quest to secure a commitment from Joe at any cost—for motives only she understands. <br>
Though peace and quiet is all Rose wants, it’s the last thing she’s liable to get. And the ripple of secrets in her life threatens to create an undertow that will endanger her and everyone she holds dear. <br>
Includes POVs from Joe, Mason, Hilary, and Skeeter.


  • Each character has a story...

    By Hlgpooh
    Love the different POV's… WOW! I really love when we get a "bonus" novel with different POV's. In this book, the reader gets to read the POV's from Joe, Mason, Hilary, and Skeeter. I loved Skeeter's POV. Although he is "the crime boss" he is likeable as a character and he, like Rose, reveals that all is not black and white. I did feel some sympathy for Hilary in her POV, but I still don't like her. All in all, this was a great in-between novella.
  • love this novellas!

    By bengalfan78
    What I love about these Novella's is we finally get inside the heads of the other major players and Ripple of Secrets lives up to it's name. We learn that everyone is keeping a secret. While all the major players may be doing this for "noble" reason, lies and secrets never end well for anyone keeping them or those being kept from the truth. It shall be an exciting time in Fenton County will the whole truth finally comes out!

  • I can't even

    By Sierra82614
    I can't begin to explain my love for these novels. Each one is better than the last and leaves me needing more of the story. I love that each novel finishes a mystery of its own but also continues a bigger story.
  • Must read POV!

    By Tess425
    The POV's in this book will floor you! At this point Rose and Fenton County is now an obsession! A need to find out the answers, which leads to more questions. Hilary's POV broke my heart and made her a little less evil. The number of secrets that spill for these pages will only make you want to know more. If you haven't read any Rose, stop and go get 28 and half wishes now!!! If you have read all of them till now, this is an important must read before going to on "Thirty-four and half Predicaments"
  • Ripple of secrets

    By PokerPearl
    This is an awful rip-off! These "books" do not stand alone as in a legitimate series. This is actually one book broken into three parts by chapters. It's easy to see how it strings out any actual story to try to make it appear to be a book. boring to boot!
  • Great series

  • Amazing

  • Denise does it again!!

    By RandomGiraffe28
    Oh. My. Word. Yet again Denise delivers a phenomenal addition to a great series. In this book you'll find answers to questions as well as many new plot twists that you never saw coming. It's a page-turner in every sense of the word. Denise has a gift for writing from several different points of view; at times you'll find yourself frustrated with your favorite characters and at others feeling sympathy and appreciation for characters that you really want to loathe! This book will pull you in and not let you go until you finish it.
  • Kick you in the shins, spit on your neck FANTASTIC!

    By Jamieelizabeth77
    Kick you in the shins, spit on your neck FANTASTIC! Denise Grover Swank has perfected the art of the novella! The Rose Gardner Between the Numbers Novella create bridges between the main novels, and don't get too comfortable because these bridges often have nasty troll secrets waiting underneath to reach up and grab you! Ripple of Secrets was no exception because the POVs shared took what you knew about certain characters and dumped it from a 20 story window. I can't imagine reading these series without the novellas that expand parts of the story we'd otherwise not know. If you love the Rose Gardner mysteries then you won't want to miss this epic addition!
