Hemlock Lake

N. Jones
“Let me start by saying that if someone doesn’t make this into a movie, that will be a crime. Hemlock Lake is a seriously fast-paced novel that sucks you in.”
Amanda Capper
“It was past two a.m. when I finally put Hemlock Lake down and though I had to get up for work in four hours, I felt the book warranted the lack of sleep.”
Gloria and Ted Feit
“Written with a sharp eye on small town America and how the past infringes on the future, the book is highly recommended.”
Harriet Klausner
“. . . an entertaining character driven thriller.”
P. J. Coldren
“HEMLOCK LAKE is a well-written mystery.”
Deb Kincaid
“Distinct, richly drawn characters, ominous cliffhangers, and ever-ratcheting tension prove Rose has the storytelling chops to deliver a good mystery.”
Betty of The Betz Review
“There are many layers to this book, but it's the balance between family drama and local mystery that will likely appeal to most readers.”
Cynthia Warren
“This is a very well written story.  While not an action-thriller, the tensions run high all throughout the book. Readers will have a hard time putting this down until the very end.”
Steve Moore
“I recommend that you try this book—you’ll end up thoughtful about the human condition.”
Carolyn Schultz-Rathbun
“Rose has written not just a mystery but a well-rounded novel, one that deals with loss and change and our responses to them.”

Steve Moore
“I laughed with nearly every turn of the page and was only disappointed when the book ended.”
Amanda Capper
“Crab cakes have never been so funny, or so pious. Lechery has never been so organic, and sewage has certainly never been so suspenseful.”
“Rose and Nettleton have a sharp eye for the absurdities of human behavior, and SOMETIMES A GREAT COMMOTION is the kind of witty mystery they do so well.”

The Big Grabowski

(ISBN # 978-0982144336)
Krill Press

Amanda Capper
“I highly recommend The Big Grabowski, and not just for readers who enjoy a well-written cozy but also for aspiring writers who need help in developing characters. Rose and Nettleton make it look easy.”
Jean Tribull Harris
“These characters are outstanding and unforgettable!”
Steve Moore
“It has the local color and humor of a Carl Hiaasen novel, a list of suspects with behaviors that run the gamut of human nature unlike Christie’s prim and proper Brits, and an ambitious sleuth/reporter that only wants to get out of town as rapidly as possible, as unlike Mrs. Marple as one can imagine.”
Mary Lignor
“Mystery readers will absorb this book as I did and look forward to more.”

“Rose drew on her years working in television newsrooms for this book and her expertise shows.”
