In High Cotton: Neely Kate Mystery #2 (English Edition) Reviews
The first Neely Kate (NK) book did not have a lot of the well-known characters -- I liked it, but it was not what I had expected. That was OK, because it dealt with Neely Kate's dark past, her demons and why she felt she couldn't open up to anybody. This one shows a lot more of NK's interactions with the people we've been reading about for the past few years -- crazy (evil half-sister) Kate escapes, bodies drop like flies around NK so Jed and Joe need to work together to help Neely Kate. Loved the blossoming relationship between Jed and NK, Joe makes an effort to bond with his half-sister, Rose is going away for the weekend with James at a garden exhibit, and Mason is in the background trying to find reasons to prosecute everybody.I have a book-hangover and can barely wait to read what happens next! After reading so many novels and novellas you come to know these people and you become very invested in their lives -- they all have their flaws, they don't always make the right choices and they change along the way and this gives them a lot of depth and makes them very human. I love how the author uses the first-person narrative to mask the thoughts and intentions of the other characters -- it really challenges your initial assumptions whenever she changes the perspective. Denise Grover Swank is a master storyteller!This novel was so good I could not put it down until I finished it and I still keep thinking about it and all things that happened. There was a lot of action, suspense, drama and shenanigans (loved Rose and NK at the etiquette class) and (like in all Denise Grover Swank's books) there are so many twists and turns that you never know what's around the corner. I will start reading it again to make sure I did not miss any details or hints. I think it is one of my favorite books in the Rose/NK series so far.
"Oh My Stars and Garters". Neely Kate is in a world of Trouble Again. Neely Kate's crazy half sister Kate has escaped from the psychiatric hospital she was sent to after her killing spree. Kate seems to know the horrible secrets from Neely Kate's secret life in Ardmore. Is her intention to expose Neely Kate's private, sad and sadistic past? Dangerous things start happening close to Neely Kate. Is it Kate or is some other dangerous criminal element after her? Who exactly is after her and what do they want? Can Joe and Jed keep her safe? Mason has returned to Henryetta and seems to be out for vengeance. Joe steps up to the plate for NK. Jed finally shows NK how much she means to him. "In High Cotton" is a wonderful book that will keep you wondering who is causing all this tragedy around Nk and what is their end game? Denise Grover Swank does it again with this highly intriguing romantic mystery. It kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning and is an absolute MUST READ !!!
All I can say is just wow really, this was good as always and when it comes to Nelly Kate, Joe, Rose, and Jed you just can’t go wrong.The more and more I read each book, I just keep falling more and more in love with JOE and JED. Yes there’s still James aka Skeeter and I do like him, but still, I don’t know if I’m the only one but I don’t think I’ll ever stop dreaming for Rose and Joe to get back together. Of course with Kate on the loose it’s a crazy nightmare. I’m just a little speechless to how Kate always knows everything that she does, or how she does, when it comes to Nelly Kate. And of course there are a few funny times like always when it comes to Nelly Kate, her thinking sure is something and she really knows how to make you laugh or smile.“He opened the driver’s door and got out, leaving the car running. I spun around to face Muffy in the backseat. “He’s just gonna leave us out here?” Muffy barked. “Yeah,” I said. “You’re right. We’re take-charge women and we don’t sit around waitin’ for any man. Even my brother.” I picked up my purse off the floor and set it on my lap. “How do you feel about bein’ a purse dog?”“He glanced toward the door then back to me, leaning his forearm on the table. “I heard Kate Simmons escaped from the funny farm, and yet you’re prancin’ around like you’re going to a May Day parade. What are you doin’, Neely Kate?”And last how can it end like it did because now like always, I’m just left with wanting MORE NOW, and the next adventure to continue with them isn’t till November, N O V E M B E R! I really can’t wait to long. What am I to do.
Book 2 continues with Neely Kate River’s story of what happened in Ardmore and her growing affection for Skeeter Malcolm’s partner Jed Carlisle. Neely continues to live with her best friend Rose on the farm and schedules, designs and does the accounting for the landscaping business. Meanwhile Rose is seeing Skeeter “James” Malcolm and not as the Lady in Black and Joe Simmons wants to take Neely Kate to a high society dinner and introduce her as his sister. Well it wouldn’t be much of a story if that was all it was, oh no, someone who knows about her Ardmore secrets is sending her messages. Great story line and Ms. Swank keeps you on the edge of your seat, biting your nails and staying up late reading with this 2nd book. Oh did I forget to mention Sister Kate Simmons has escaped from the psych ward and dead bodies are piling up. This is a review were you have to be careful not to tell too much as many twists and turns are awaiting you. Glad to see all the other reviews were just as high.
Good read all characters familiar and comfortable. Of course I read Mystery #1 first. Kate Simmons is out of jail wanting to bond in her unusual way to her new baby half sister Neely Kate. Mason is back as the District Attorney and he's back to clean up all crime suspects in Henrietta. And of course Neely Kate, a little spit fire of a woman has hooked up with the right hand man of Sketter Malcolm who runs the crime syndicate in Henrietta. And Rose, Neely Kates, best friend and the District attorney's X-girlfriend has hooked up with Sketter Malcolm. Joe Simmons the sheriff and brother to Kate Simmons has just learned Neely Kate and Jed have hooked up and he's not happy about his new half sister being with Jed. And only Neely Kate knows about Rose being with Sketer Malcolm. Neely Kates past is coming back to confront her. Enjoy, it's a great little story.
This is one of my favorite Rose Gardner/Neely Kate books. It picks up on some of the events that occurred in 36 1/2. This book focuses on the sibling relationships of Kate, Neely Kate, and Joe. It also focuses on Neely Kate and Jed! While Rose is absent most of the book, her presence is "always around the corner." For those of us who are fans of Joe, we see a new redeemed Joe and we can understand him more. Go Joe! I love that Denise Grover Swank does not create flawless characters. I enjoy protagonist more than heroes. Well, Maeve may be perfect; a part of me hopes not! If you are a Rose or Neely Kate fan, read this one!!! If you are a newbie to the series, roll out Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes! You won't be sorry because you will have on of the best and most entertaining reads of you life.
