A Review of Falling to Pieces
by Denise Grover Swank
FTP is a Rose Gardner ‘between the novels’ novella. There are three installments available to Denise’s faithful followers aka the Street Team in this one great book. I had the pleasure of purchasing a real live copy, signed by the one and only Denise.
The Rose Gardner series is one of my all time favorite books. The characters; the plot; the writing. It is one of the many reasons I fell in love with reading again.
In this novella, written in three parts, you get the in between info on what characters were thinking and feeling and doing based up the plot in Thirty and a Half Excuses.
Sorry to disappoint everyone, but I am still on Team Mason. To quote DGS, “Joe Simmons, asshat charmer.” I will never be a fan… and I still wish Violet would grow up. She definitely pushes her own messed up life and problems onto everyone else. Can’t she be happy for Rose?? Rose also starts to come to terms with being able to take care of herself, before she can BE with anyone else… I enjoyed this novella because it gave me something to eat to tide me over while I wait for the main course release of Thirty One. I recommend anyone who loves the Rose Series to read this novella as well. Thank you to Denise!!
