When fifteen-year-old Grace Branduff finds an old man dying on her doorstep, she can’t understand his last words, and is mystified by the beautiful gift he leaves behind. When his death sets off a chain of events that drastically changes the course of Grace’s life, she must rely on her instincts and intuition to discover whom she can trust and where she belongs.

Haunted by the time-worn love letter the old man carried across an ocean, Police Chief Scott Gordon is determined to unravel the man’s mysterious past and find out why he came to Rose Hill. The few clues he does have quickly lead him into conflict with the town’s wealthiest misanthrope, the cranky, eccentric Mamie Rodefeffer.

Although Scott is back in Maggie Fitzpatrick’s life, it’s uncertain how long their amorous truce will last. No one is more surprised than Maggie when maternal feelings she didn’t know she had lead her to view Scott in a brand new light. It’s May in Rose Hill, and the first signs of spring are appearing, along with the consequences of difficult choices made long ago.

    New Beginings In the fifth book of the Rose Hill Mysteries we are introduced to some new high school age characters. We see the uncertain, sometimes nice, sometimes mean interactions of both children and adults. The story revolves around the deaths of two elderly men, a new fortune found and lost fortunes resulting in greed, loss, new found plutonic love, and old romance advancing. It was hard to set the book down—even to sleep.

    Not a murder mystery, as apparently the other books in the series are. When a mysterious foreign stranger dies on the porch of the meanest old man in town, who happens to be the grouchy, neglectful, abusive grandfather of Grace, a 15-year old, about-to-be orphan in this coming of age story of good and bad townspeople, and mother's everywhere.

    Full of Grace Well, I had to think long and hard about that one, but what she meant was that if I spent all my time worrying about what other people thought of me I would never be happy Truer words have been spoken but not enough. A very heartfelt story about love and friendship . Grace learns about love. Recommend this story highly. Can't wait to keep reading the series.

    Heartwarming This book could be about you, me or our next door neighbor. Grace is a sweet girl, coming of age, with the world's weight on her skinny shoulders. Life makes her grow up fast and push through pain and fear to do what is right, and find herself. Truly a triumphant, uplifting story.

    This book is about family, good and bad. It's also about good people who aren't family. I have enjoyed this series of books. The small town has good people and bad, politics and plotting, and all the other elements of small town living. I feel like I am visiting with friends, hissing at enemies and having a good time. People matter and the author gets this. This book is about family, good and bad. It's also about good people who aren't family. I have enjoyed this series of books.

    An old man is found by fifteen-year-old Grace Branduff dying on her family home's front porch but she doesn't understand what he is saying. But how will an investigation to trace his family impact on Grace and her family. An enjoyable well-written cozy mystery, more of a character driven story.

    Entertaining Interesting small town dramas... Main characters in mid to early forties. Not fast paced but enjoyable with humor built in.

    I can’t put my finger on why I look forward to reading each book in this series. Maybe it is partly due to wanting to be a part of the big, messy Fitzpatrick family.

    This one is the first in the series where the Fitzpatricks are not the absolute center of the story. This one is about Grace, the neglected and abused granddaughter of one of the meanest men in Rose Hill.

Now worth millions, the Rodefeffers want to get their greedy paws on the money to refill their depleting coffers and think the girl will be an easy mark. With the help of some pretty influential Fitzpatricks, and a few others, watch how Grace copes with all she's been handed. Oh yeah, and Scott and Maggie finally agree to marry...

    Although this series is usually a mystery series, this one doesn´t have a murder, although a mysterious stranger does have a heart attack and die on the doorstep of the latest character in this series, Grace, a 15 year old who becomes an orphan soon afterwards. The usual cast of characters is eager to help her, and the usual villains are eager to take advantage of her. As usually, it´s the people that makes this series enjoyable, so I liked this one as always.

    Love the Rosehill books. This one was less about the Fitzpatrick cousins, centering on Grace, a 15 year old orphan. There was no murder in this book but it began with a stranger dying of a heart attack on the steps of the home Grace shared with her abusive and neglectful grandfather. The author said this was a book about mothers, and where one can find mothering in the absence of a "real" one. It was a charming story about a resilient young woman and how the good people in town rallied around he Love the Rosehill books.

    Three and a half stars. Another decent offering in the Rose Hill mystery series. New characters, new drama, lots of action with old favourites. Mamie Rodefeffer is no longer my favourite Rose Hill resident. She was much less funny and more of a pill in this book. Three year old Sammy Campbell has offically taken over as my favourite; his antics are hilarious. I thought his character was a little contrived in the last book, almost TOO much, but I literally laughed out loud at his naming of the baby Three and a half stars.

    No murder, still a mystery When a stranger comes to town and dies on poor Grace's front steps, it puts in motion everything she needs to find a loving and supportive family, and cleans up some of the corruption that has been plaguing this small town.
