Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons by Denise Grover Swank

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.

  1. As with the first book, I absolutely loved this one! I know I'm no longer reviewing but had I seen the post I would've jumped at the chance. I haven't been disappointed with anything Denise has written!

  2. Denise never disappoints. Another great book! :)

  3. I love courtroom drama. Thanks for the chance to win.

  4. I haven't read any of her books. She sounds like an eccentric person. In a good way!

  5. Oh, I love this plot! It seems I'm called for jury duty every year and I've served on a jury once. Thus, I am truly intrigued by this great novel. This baby is definitely on my Wish List!

  6. Great tour. I started the series with book #2. Now on to book #1 to see what I missed. Am looking forward to more!
