REVIEWS

REVIEWS FOR THE WEDDING PACT

“The Wedding Pact is a fun, easy, breezy, summer romance series about 3 best friends with slightly crazy wedding hijinks and romances.”

Book Munchies

For THE SUBSTITUTE

“I think what drew me to this book was that in amongst the storyline was a thread of complete and utter truth…the real life struggle to deal with family and how to balance our commitments to others with our own desires.  Everyone has experienced these elements and, in this story, they were handled with care, with humor, and with finesse. If you haven’t read a book by Denise Grover Swank this is a good one to start with…but, in reality, all of her books are wonderful.”

The Book Hookup

For THE PLAYER

“Ms. Swank has done it again…provided a story that’s equal parts romance and humor, and characters that will capture your heart immediately.  As always, her characters are strong, smart and caring.  They bring you into their family and let you sit and watch as they handle situations that are difficult, heartbreaking, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny.  And, ultimately, they’ll have you rooting for them to find their happily ever after.”

The Book Hookup

“I also enjoyed the feisty ending! It made me want to cheer for joy. The ending was great!”

Keyonna’s Bookshelf

For THE GAMBLER

“Another fun read with just enough drama to keep me turning the pages and just enough romance to make my heart beat faster!  Once again Ms. Swank has given us characters to love and a love story to get behind.  Her flawless writing, the sweet story lines, and the humor she adds to these books ensures reader satisfaction!”

The Book Hookup

“I would recommend this book to any…romance lover. It is perfect!”

Keyonna’s Bookshelf

REVIEWS FOR THE BACHELOR BROTHERHOOD

For ONLY YOU

Contemporary romance fans who love bridal trappings. . .will delight in the opener of Swank’s Bachelor Brotherhood trilogy (spun off from the Wedding Pact series), a sentimental, endearingly goofy story that packs a surprising amount of impulsive heat.”

Publishers Weekly

“Right from the beginning, readers will be cheering for this couple to find their happily-ever-after. Even when it seems that everything — and everyone — is against them, they are drawn to each other by a force that is so strong nothing could pull them apart. The story is well-written and paced in a way that readers will have a hard time putting it down.”

RT Book Reviews

“Some angst, some humor and, of course, some delicious romance…this was a light read with characters who were easy to like.  The story was both sweet and had moments of tension and sadness.  This is shaping up to be another great series by Ms. Swank – one that will make you smile, sigh and swoon.”

The Book Hookup

“If you like your romance reads to have sweetness and humor, Only you is a great pick! I have read other books by Swank, and her style is light and easy.”

The Book Disciple

 “I’m always a sucker for an adorable neighbour-romance…a nice introduction to the new series.”

Book Munchies

For UNTIL YOU

“Swank introduces readers to another hot bachelor in her latest Bachelor Brotherhood series. The characters have plans for how their lives are supposed to go and are set in their ways, but the situations they encounter are laugh-out-loud funny. Readers will enjoy the playful relationship that Lanie and Tyler have. The story is well written without any issues with flow. Another great read to add to Swank’s stellar library!”

RT Book Reviews

“I must say, I had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading. A thoroughly enjoyable read, hitting all the right spots! I cannot wait for the third book in the series.”

Open Book Society

“A quick and sweet addition to the Bachelor Brotherhood series, Until You fits right into the cute rom-com genre…fun and flirty, perfect for when you’re in the mood for a summery rom-com kinda read.”

Book Munchies

“A wonderfully entertaining read.”

Romantic Reads and Such

For ALWAYS YOU

“I enjoyed this story so much. It was emotional, sweet, and hopeful. It was beautifully written and proves that true love, regardless of time and space, will always find a way.”

Ever After Book Reviews

REVIEWS FOR THE ROSE GARDNER MYSTERIES

For TWENTY-EIGHT AND A HALF WISHES

“Readers will root for the appealing heroine.”

Publishers Weekly

“Say you’re watching a particularly saucy episode of The Good Wife. It’s a juicy one: full of intrigue, chemistry and friction between main characters, surprise twists, secret dalliances, and a legal hurdle that the lawyers miraculously meet. Picture that, but with the tenor of Hart of Dixie, and you may get something as compulsively readable, sweet and funny as Swank’s TWENTY-EIGHT AND A HALF WISHES.”

Fab Book Reviews

“The mystery was fun and surprising, the romance was a roller coaster ride also full of mystery, and the main character was funny and charming. If you like Southern novels and mysteries with humor, this is definitely the book for you! I am really looking forward to the next book in the series, and I already miss Rose.”

Steph the Bookworm

“[Rose’s] character journey, from a young, innocent 24-year-old girl to a slightly-less-innocent but more independent woman is the star of the story. I loved her.”

The Canon Book Blog

For TWENTY-NINE AND A HALF REASONS

“Readers will enjoy this lighthearted romantic suspense novel with a dash of comedy. The characters are memorable, the pace is fast and the dialogue is witty.”

RT Book Reviews

For THIRTY AND A HALF EXCUSES

“I already have the next one in the series lined up as I cannot possibly stop reading the series at this juncture.”

Ajoobacats Blog

For THIRTY-ONE AND A HALF REGRETS

“Impossible to stop reading.”

Ajoobacats Blog

For THIRTY-TWO AND A HALF COMPLICATIONS

“I cannot recommend the Rose Gardner Mystery series highly enough. I have convinced many people to start reading these and now they are as hooked as I am.”

Bookish Bitch

For THIRTY-THREE AND A HALF SHENANIGANS

“I love, love, love this book series and I can’t recommend it enough.”

Stuff I Love Blog

For THIRTY-FOUR AND A HALF PREDICAMENTS

“[A] stand out as one of the best in the series…This book is breathtakingly good right up to the conclusion, which left me speechless.”

Floating Leaves

For THIRTY-FIVE AND A HALF CONSPIRACIES

“The suspense…will keep you reading.”

Serious Reading

For THIRTY-SIX AND A HALF MOTIVES

“There were so many twists and turns in THIRTY-SIX, more than any other books in the Rose Gardner series.”

Sassy Cat Blog

REVIEWS FOR ROSE GARDNER INVESTIGATIONS

For FAMILY JEWELS

“I love a good mystery book, and this one is filled with plot twists, deception, and a missing necklace that every criminal wants to get their hands on.”

Chick Lit Plus

“This book was everything we have come to know and love about Rose Gardner. Suspense, humor, and love… If you have read and loved the original Rose series, you will continue to love this one. If you are just now trying Rose out, you will fall in love with her like the rest of Rose Lovers.”

HEA Novel Thoughts

For FOR THE BIRDS

“The Rose Gardner series has long been one of my favorites and the writing is still wonderful.”

HEA Novel Thoughts

REVIEWS FOR NEELY KATE MYSTERIES

For TRAILER TRASH

“TRAILER TRASH adds a whole new dimension to the Rose stories. It is darker, grittier, and steamier, while holding onto all the things that make the original series so good: that same easy reading style [and] the solid friendships…”

Lady Loves the Books

“Make sure you don’t have any plans before you start this book, because you will not be able to put it down. This book is funny, heartbreaking and heartwarming.”
