  • Excellent gripping mystery!

    I’m utterly flabbergasted with the amount of talent that Denise Grover Swank brings to the table. This third installment of the Carly Moore series literally blew my mind. The storyline was thick with tension on all kinds of levels. Drum TN is steep with secrets and it seems like everyone’s got one. There was no way I could put this book down because I had to know what was going to happen next. Carly develops into such an amazing character. I found myself raising my fist in solidarity of her conviction to shed the girl she was and embrace the strong willed, fiercely independent woman she’s become. She’s made a family of her own with Hank and her handful of close friends. The people of Drum have taken notice of her since she arrived and are starting to accept her more by treating her less like an outsider. While I still think Wyatt is a good man, I just don’t think he’s good enough for our girl Carly. Now Marco has me all up in my feels! We get a little more backstory from him and I feel like he truly understands Carly better and appreciates her more. I love their bond and how they’re both supportive of each other. Even though I was hoping they would take a chance on each other, I’m also glad that Carly isn’t rushing into anything. I was also glad to see my favorite seniors make an appearance and they did not disappoint! I can only hope to be as ornery as Gladys and Roberta when I grow up. I highly recommend this book if you love a gripping mystery mixed with a bit of humor and a pinch of romance. I’m anxiously looking forward to what other secrets the little town of Drum TN reveals to Carly and if they will bring her closer to her goals of bringing down Bart Drummond once and for all. Or, will her secret be revealed first.

  • Intense gripping mystery you can't put it down

    What a wild ride through this yet another absolutely amazing book! There was no doubt I'd love Carly's new mystery but I've been pleasantly surprised by author once again how talented she is in plotting these stories. I wanted to read faster because I couldn't take any more of this intense action packed suspense. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, guessing and betting I'm right but still didn't see it coming what shocking surprises Denise Grover Swank had all the way and to the very end of the story. But, that's what you should discover by yourself, right? I love how all of Ms. Swank's characters are so multilayered, with flaws, insecurities, secrets, complex relationships. Love how they are growing before your eyes as personalities you instantly fall in love with them or love to hate them. I feel so emotionally attached to Carly and her people, they are like my friends and that's why I feel really sorry and sad for some of them. Highly recommend this series because you need to read from the beginning to understand it. Small towns mysteries seem to be greater than big cities.

  • Wonderful!

    Holy Moley, what a read! The 3rd book in the Carly Moore series is the most intense yet! It starts off running and doesn't let up! Carly has become such a strong, fierce woman and I am loving her journey so very much. The twists and turns in One Foot in the Grave had my nose buried in my Kindle until way too late, but I just couldn't seem to put it down. Her relationships with the citizens of Drum grow deeper and richer throughout the story and I just can't wait for the next installment!

  • Amazing Story Continues!

    4.5 Stars- Carly Moore’s story continues in Drum, TN busy as ever waitressing at the Tavern and now investigating a body found. The author does an awesome job on catching you up on the back story so you don’t feel lost. Whether this is the first book in the series you pick up or it has been awhile since you read the previous one, you get the idea without it being redundant. I love seeing where Carly’s life leads her. Her family she found here, Hank, makes your heart melt on how protective and caring he is for her. The friendships she creates with so many in town including Marco. Carly and Wyatt have been broken up for a few months when Wyatt’s ex-girlfriend’s body is found. Guess who the main suspect would be? Carly tries to get past her recent heartbreak and help Wyatt stay out of jail while trying to NOT become like the ex-gf...by being six foot under. I was very excited to get to finally learn of some of Wyatt’s secrets. I felt torn at times, part of me angry with him, other part my heart breaking. The suspense and uncertainty on how their relationship will turn out, trying to keep Wyatt from going to jail as well as the danger Carly was putting herself in kept me on the edge of my seat. With this book I felt like more answers to the puzzle are slowly revealing even though I end up asking more questions on what will happen next for the overall grand picture. I wouldn’t say it is necessarily a cliffhanger but it does make you not want to wait for the next book. This was exciting, intriguing, a little heart wrenching, but as usual it was an overall great story.

  • Another Great Mystery.

    This next instalment of the Carly Moore series is intense and heightened that I couldn't stop reading all weekend. As Carly was on her mission to clear Wyatt's name, I was on the ride right along with her. I wonder if it was because Wyatt was the one in trouble and needed help as to why I was so invested but I also feel it was due to the storyline that kept me absorbed. This time round, Carly is still trying to find out more about Bart Drummond and his illegal activities so to bring him down, but also help solved the murder of a young woman who was supposed to leave town nine years prior. She just so happens to be Wyatt's ex girlfriend, Heather which now places him as the number one suspect. Carly knows that Wyatt isn't capable of murder, hiding things from her - sure, but not killing an innocent woman. She agrees to help as long as Wyatt tells her more about his father. DGS is brilliant at writing mysteries, along with any other genre, and I love all the characters in this series. Carly is not only capable of holding her own, she has a heart of gold too. She has surrounded herself with good people she is now considering family, like Hank. I adore his gruffness as well as the side he only shows Carly when alone, a protective father figure. Her boss Max is also a great guy, he treats Carly like a sister and is learning that she is one that can be trusted. Of course there is Wyatt and Marco, these two have been in the forefront in Carly's new life in Drum. She dated Wyatt for a few short months and Marco is her best friend from the time they have spent together since she arrived in town. Each of them would like to be more significant than being in the friend zone, but she has been burnt before and it's not that easy to trust again. I wonder what the next mystery will be for Carly and the gang in Drum. I will definitely be ready to devour that book as well.

    Thanks for your feedback!
