    Entertaining. Interesting characters, they all have problems and trying to live with or find a solution for it. Shouldn't have started to read this series with book 9, not knowing the back stories made it harder to follow. Care givers emotional story was very touching. Entertaining.

    Number 9 in the Rose Hill series. Once again the cousins are trying to solve a murder while also carrying on their daily lives. Most of the characters in this series are quite likable, with a few notable exceptions. I think most people can relate to their issues: precocious children, a father with dementia, career changes, etc. I would suggest starting with the beginning of the series since there are a lot of backstories at this point.

    Very satisfying series! Really, really enjoyed these books. Interesting characters and Exceptional character development. Lots of witty dialogue and good stories. Diane Harmon should take lessons from this author. I'm sorry to see the series end. Very satisfying series! Really, really enjoyed these books.

    So interesting I have read all the series and am absolutely wrapped up in characters! It's a continuous stream of their lives. The mysteries are all good, but these are not "cozy" books.

    I'm a little confused Perhaps it was a matter of the number of interrelated characters, or the number of dead end alleys, but I don't understand the fakery or why the toxicology report would take so long to generate. Perhaps the Rose Hill book 10 will answer some questions.

    Could have been better Didn't care for the way this one was written. Not nearly as good as the other 8. Will read more of her books. Could have been better Didn't care for the way this one was written. Not nearly as good as the other 8. Will read more of her books.

    I read the Rose Hill series #1-8 a year ago, loved it and grieved when it ended. I was thrilled to find another one had been published and was so happy to catch up with the wonderful characters in Rose Hill, West Virginia, especially the 3 cousins Claire, Maggie and Hannah. This book centered on Claire, still trying to help her mother deal with her father's rapidly worsening dementia. She is still in a relationship with Ed, a local reporter, and gets a part-time position as adjunct professor at I read the Rose Hill series #1-8 a year ago, loved it and grieved when it ended.

Another professor is found dead under suspicious circumstances, and Claire believes he was murdered. I hope this series continues and long before another year has passed!
