5 Score: 5 (From 255 Ratings)


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.

    HOW are these books STILL so good?! I’m drawn in to every single book. I’m always so disappointed in myself for finishing it so quickly too - I just can’t put it down! This one was just as great. This woman has a gift.
  • Love!!!

    Denise, you have done it again. WOW! To be ready for Come Rain or Shine, I started rereading with 28 1/2 Wishes. All Rose Gardner and Neely Kate books. The book came out and I still had to finish Up Shute Creek. What a struggle to not just jump in and read Come Rain or Shine. I finished Up Shute Creek. I have since read Come Rain or Shine 3 times and then I’ve gone back to read various scenes. I’m not ready to move on. Most of the major characters in this series with the exception of Mason came from physical or emotional abusive homes. They are from poverty, middle class and wealthy homes. Mauve must cringe when she realizes that a loving home does not guarantee that a child will be able to live in love and forgiveness. Masons vindictiveness is so hard to take. Rose once again is faced with decisions that she doesn’t want to make. Denise shows how family is made up of friendship as well as blood. I am anticipating to see how Joe, Neely Kate, Jed, Johna, Hardshaw, Kate, Bruce Wayne, Brox, Marshall, Carly, Margi, Whit and even Dena continue to be involved further in Rose’s adventures and life. Thank you Denise Grover Swank.
  • Wow!

    Come Rain or Shine is so far my favorite book. I love how you feel every emotion possible while reading this book! Just like you are there living it with Rose! Denise is my all time favorite writer and she has out done herself with this book! I couldn’t put it down and used every spare minute I had reading!
  • One of the best in the whole series

    I have felt so much over the years as I’ve read through the stories in Rose Gardner’s world, and at times I’ve felt bereft and upset and disappointed at the turns her life had taken but I never thought I’d feel happy and sad at the same time and DGS has accomplished that. I’ve never written a review before, I am picky and critical, so believe me when I say, you want to read this book.
  • Amazing
