If we're to take Violate's interference between Ros This is second in a series and they definitely build on each other. If we're to take Violate's interference between Rose and Joe seriously, then it means that Violate is nearly as great a monster as their mother was.
I'm sorry, but when she view spoiler [refused to call Joe when Rose was thrown in jail for contempt of court hide spoiler ] it went way beyond anything excusable. So when Violate maintains her stance against Joe and Rose just leaves with the thought that "she's my sister" it created a break with the story for me.
The biggest result of this break is that I then went and read the blurbs and some reviews for the rest of the series. And came to find out. Spoilers for the rest of the series: Worse, Rose goes into business with her and lets her screw her out of who knows how much money by some financial hijinks undoubtedly motivated by her sense of entitlement and control hide spoiler ].
Which is bad enough, but then I also found out that view spoiler [Joe gets replaced my Mason who also gets jettisoned by the end of the series hide spoiler ] and that ended my ability to continue with this book. And with the series, for that matter. On one level, I wish I hadn't snooped ahead.
But on the other, I'm relieved that I can bail early. View all 3 comments. No surprise here I quickly became a huge fan of Denise's after reading Chosen, her action-packed triller. Then after reading Here, her paranormal romance, I was hooked. And here I am again, thrilled to have had the chance to read Denise's mystery novel, Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons, and I can't say enough good things about it! Denise is quickly becoming one of my very favorite authors.
Rose, the main character, is just awesome. She's adorable and lovable, t No surprise here She's adorable and lovable, totally relatable, makes terrible choices at times actually, most of the time She's not scared to do anything if she feels it's right. She drives everyone in her life nuts with her fearlessness, but they just can't help loving her for it all.
And honestly, I couldn't help loving her either. She's maybe one of my favorite characters of all time. Love her!! The story starts off fast and never stops. I was sucked in immediately.
I haven't read a huge number of mysteries, but this is definitely one of my favorites.
The China–North Korea Relationship
The fact that it's more of a chick-lit mystery novel really had me hooked When I got to the last page I thought, "Oh, crappy doodles! I would absolutely recommend this book. Another 5 star review for Denise!! Rose has the sight Desperate to use the bathroom and with the female toilets closed for cleaning she sneaks into the men's room, only to find herself trapped by a man talking on the phone.
Then she has a vision When she finds herself on the jury for the only murder trial on the ticket, she knows the accused is Rose has the sight When she finds herself on the jury for the only murder trial on the ticket, she knows the accused is innocent, but it seems everyone has made up their mind and it looks like his conviction is a foregone conclusion. Rose begins investigating in the hopes of freeing an innocent man. Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons is a whacky, off the wall murder mystery about a woman who has the second sight.
There are loose ends everywhere and some of what happens would never happen in a million years, not even in Arkansas, but it's such great fun that I can't hold any of that against this book.
Jul 09, Pamela rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I can't find any fault with it - not the story, the characters, nothing.
I just loved it. Denise Grover Swank is a very talented writer and if you haven't read any of her books, you're missing out on some terrific reads. Just like the first book in the Rose Gardner series, this one has mystery, adventure, romance, and humour all thrown into the mix.
I thought the scenes in the courthouse were hilarious, especially her exchanges with the judge. Rose and Joe are still together; however, I think there's going to be some competition for Rose's affection coming soon. Don't underestimate Rose. She may be quirky but she's also very sharp. I cannot wait for the third book in the series. I just hope we don't have to wait too long. It's getting silly.
The first book was good and I was really looking forward to this one, but Rose's antics are bordering on annoying. I guess I fell in love a little with Rose in book 1, but she is not the same character in this book.
Her character strength happened too quickly and is so far from being even remotely believable. I'm somewhat invested though, and will go on to the third book, but if the unbelievable silliness and editing mistakes continue, it will be my last book with this author It's getting silly.

Feb 06, Meital rated it really liked it. Again we have a mystery, some new characters and great romance. I laughed the entire time I was reading this book. Rose is a trip and her sister is even funnier. The murder mystery was just right to. She is working a droll job at The DMV when she gets a notice in the mail that she must report to the courthouse for Jury Duty. She is excited to have a day off so she thinks until she reaches the court house and bumps into the New District Attorney Mason.
She is not a fan of his right now and it showed. Once she is inside the courthouse and ready to see if she is picked for jury duty she has one of her visions. In this vision she can see that the man on trial is innocent. But how can she prove he is innocent? What is she to do go into the courtroom and yell that she had a vision and this man is innocent. NO WAY they would lock her up and throw away the key.
So she has to find a way to get this guy off because he is the wrong man. Then to make matters worse Rose's older sister Violet is going through a mid-life crisis and is nagging poor Rose to break up with her awesome new boyfriend Joe who just happens to be a detective.
Violet tries everything under the sun to break them up but Rose is determined to have a normal life. What is a girl to do about her sister? Will Rose be able to prove that man's innocence? Yet another book Denise wrote that swept me off of my feet and pulled me into another world.
How she does it is a mystery, but I hope she never stops! When you read a novel by Denise Grover Swank, you feel the characters' emotions and experience their roller coaster lives right alongside them. Rosie's story is no different, and you can't help but love her. Joe is most certainly correct in saying Rose seems to be in the midst of some form of chaos at all times. She's a magnet for trouble. I love Yet another book Denise wrote that swept me off of my feet and pulled me into another world.
I love the spunk that Rose develops as the series progresses. She was never meant to be a wallflower. This sassy girl has been waiting to burst out of the shell she survived in for so many years, and I can't hardly wait to see where she ends up next! Rose is back and sassy as ever! Ms Swank does a great job of bringing the same character I've grown to love read 28 four or five times back to life in this courtroom mystery of who-dun-it!
It was awesome!
You won't want to miss this installment of Rose Gardner! Love her! I can't wait for Thirty!! Apr 17, Linda rated it really liked it. Okay, I'm hooked. On to book three My favorite of Denise's books to date.
And that's saying a lot.
if it isn't you, then i dont know else
Full review soon. Sadece 2. Jul 05, Anna's Herding Cats rated it really liked it Shelves: Rose is a handful. She has a way of getting herself in the stickiest of situations The Gist: Rose has been summoned for jury duty. The problem is? Well she has a vision and in it she finds the defendant No one-- not even his lawyer-- thinks he's innocent and she just cannot let it go or let this man go down for a murder he didn't comment.
Cue sticky situation. I like Rose. She's innocent and earnest.
Relationship Under Strain
Sweet with a little sassy to go with it when needed. And Joe is a great sup Whew. And Joe is a great support. There when she needs him. Strong sexy cop thing going on. The mystery was pretty good. I did catch no before the big reveal but it took me a while to figure it all out which is fun.
A bit of danger, some new characters coming into the scene and Rose's life, some family drama and some heartwarming romance to round it out. All in all, a good time. I'm ready for the next. Jun 01, Charley Girl rated it liked it Shelves: These books are silly and an easy read. Rose Gardner makes me laugh because of her simplicity. Rose Gardner is having a heck of a time. She misses him something awful. Rose pretty much hates her job at the DMV.
Rose is prone to visions and has one right then, with a man using the facilities right next to her! She heard him say he got away with murder. In spite of the fact he should exclude her from the jury having had a recent murder in the family, she might be unable to be neutral , he insists on choosing her, much to the annoyance of the defense attorney.
Rose is pretty sure neither of them likes her. Since the Hamas election victory, the PA has paid its bureaucrats unemployment in exchange for them not working for Hamas. This meant that Hamas was forced to establish an entirely new bureaucratic apparatus that gradually grew to include forty-five thousand people.
Their salaries were paid primarily from the heavy taxes Hamas levied on goods smuggled through tunnels connecting Egypt to the Gaza Strip. The Egyptian military proceeded to close half the tunnels, diminishing revenues from smuggled goods.
This meant no salaries for Hamas bureaucrats. The Hamas financial crisis resuscitated the attempt to form a unity government with the PLO and resulted in a May reconciliation agreement BBC b.
The crux of the arrangement was that the Emir of Qatar would transfer funds generated from natural gas exports to the xxxx Page 9 PA.
Robert H. Israel, the United States, and the PA refused to listen. Israeli intelligence assumed that the rider was a senior Hamas leader. The effort failed. Instead, the missiles severely injured seven passers-by. In early June, the IDF continued these attempts to target Palestinian guerrillas with heavy-duty bombs, but managed only to kill a seven-year-old Gazan boy. How did the Hamas splinter cell choose these boys as its targets? A long-time grassroots Mizrah. No wonder his mom was all over the press.
I guess they asked him his last name. Surprise, surprise. With two Mizrah. The boys were instantly codified by the kidnappers at first by phenotype that indicated a quarry of significant value—two Ashkenazim and one Mizrah.
When the kidnappers learned the last name of the light colored Mizrah. In Wrapped, I coined the term GendeRace to describe the calcified amalgamation of gender and race that happens in the blink of an eye. They are therefore unable to construct racialized and gendered identities that lend themselves to political agency.
The publicity of the kidnapping allowed Hamas to resume its place at center stage and created a chain of other events.
What was ostensibly a search to find the boys and their captors in the West Bank included massive air strikes across Gaza. The IDF killed nine Palestinians and raided thirteen hundred properties, including commercial and residential buildings in the West Bank. The national mood in Israel turned somber. Sad songs of bravery and loss poured out of radios and TVs.
Netanyahu and the regime, however, knew the boys were already dead. On the evening of the kidnapping, June 12, at p. A cry of pain. Close-range gunfire. Was it a tactic to foster national unity? Public attention would shift. Indeed, with the kidnapping crisis, fortification of Labor Hill against the planned expulsions-demolitions stopped. As the mothers made futile pleas for the return of their sons in Geneva, HaLo Neh. The entire July and August summer break lay ahead of them. They hoped to revive their momentum when the national mood recovered following the funerals of the boys.
No social justice demonstrations. Time to bracket the cause and join with the Ashkenazim, united yet again as Israelis against the Arab goyim. The operation involved a forty-nine-day massive aerial and ground artillery bombardment followed by incursions of IDF soldiers who fought in the streets and homes of Gazans.
Hamas responded by striking White City, Tel Aviv with missiles. More than eleven thousand were wounded Defense for Children International According to a United Nations Development Program report , one in four people in Gaza was forced to flee their home during the seven-week Israeli operation.
The IDF Air Force, ground artillery, and infantry destroyed almost all Gazan infrastructure: hospitals, schools, and mosques were reduced to rubble. Gazans suffered an Israeli-made disaster unparalleled since the Nakba. During that same period, 66 Israeli xxxx Page 11 soldiers and 7 civilians were killed, and 1, soldiers and civilians were wounded BBC a. The War on Gaza destroyed what foreign capital had built after the Oslo Accords.
It also hammered the last nail in the coffin of the two-state solution peace plan.
The Nakba had exiled Palestinians from their homeland, but the Zionist regime had left infrastructure intact, at least temporarily, to accommodate a forthcoming mass migration that was mostly Mizrah. The Israeli regime dynamited most of it soon after.
Gaza was even more destructive: it left hardly anything intact. A scene at dusk outside Sderot, a small, largely Mizrah. The town is a stronghold of Mizrah. It has been a constant target for Hamas rockets for the past fifteen years.
PTSD is endemic. With high unemployment, ever-increasing costs of living, and ever-shrinking social services, Sderotis had planned to join forces with HaLo Neh. Instead, they were taking in the military spectacle of IDF bombardments on Gaza. As the Mediterranean breeze wafted from the Gaza shores, they left their air-conditioned homes to watch the war while picnicking, drinking espresso, and eating popcorn Mackey One people, one heart is a popular bumper sticker.
As Hamas bombarded Tel Aviv, Mizrah. Did we engage in warmongering over twenty million dollars of salaries just as Hamas was trying to unite ranks with the PLO?
Was it worth it? We can play with terrorism as a language game, but this [military operation] is about electricity, ports, and basic goods for.
Until the next round Mor-H. Their home lies in ruins following the IDF bombardment. The irregular amendment to H. Expectedly, both Hebrew and international media outlets were focused on the Gaza Carnage. The streets of Tel Aviv were empty. No tent cities of protesters set up along tree-lined boulevards. Those who could afford it had flown to Europe or North America for vacation. Others sought relief in remote, eco-friendly desert resorts that were too far away for the media to cover, and therefore, impervious to Hamas missiles.
Such escapes were beyond the means of HaLo Neh. The July 14 Knesset session to discuss the amendment to H.
Today is the Seventeenth of Tammuz In these hours, not only the people of the south, but all of us, together, confront the present security crisis. Lest we forget, this is a day for hundreds of families to visit military ceme- teries and mourn loved ones These days, we can clearly see the lessons learned from the Lebanon-2 War by the political ranks as well as the IDF. The present battle demonstrates that we have put those lessons into operation We ought to separate criticism levied at decision-makers.
They are all our sons. Palestinian MK Moh. What is the aim of Netanyahu and his government? Do they still cling to the delusion that the more dead Palestinians, the safer Israelis are? Netanyahu cynically advances a political agenda against his opposition from inside and outside the coalition government by means of war [against the Palestinians]. Has Israel gone to this war, really, to protect its citizens?
This is a crime against humanity. The protesters were attacked by fascists and police. If the streets are going to be filled with. Nevertheless, these demonstrators are rarely seen at Mizrah.
Disenfranchised Mizrah. The discussion turned to the crux of this unusual session. A Stanford alum, he is a renowned economist and former president of Ben Gurion University. Braverman was done introducing the law, even as the Gaza War continued to roar, the Knesset proceeded to consider the sale of surveillance equipment to Singapore.
Then it turned to national funding for marine research. The penultimate item dealt with boarding schools and runaway children in such a way that would further disenfranchise Mizrah. Welcome to the Parliament! The Knesset! The parliament of Israel! Hebrew media finally covered the amendment three days later. Similarly, bids arrived for the sale of 49 percent of the state-owned utilities companies and ports.
All these companies were newly listed on the stock market Channel 2 News Finance Minister Yair Lapid used the spectacle of war to nix an NIS one billion plan to remodel dilapidated low-income housing projects and build new ones Busso Meanwhile, new military contracts to restock the IDF with weapons were expected to further bolster the industry.
As done every summer, Knesset members also succeeded in securing a pay raise for themselves. Meanwhile, many public sector employees were already subject to salary freezes and furloughs, and thus underemployment.
My friends and sisters in the Mizrah. Palestinians with Israeli citizenship would not dare venture to Ah.
Much of south Tel Aviv is a right-wing bastion. Fascist gangs roaming Black City with chains and knives would break your bones, they warned. But I was home. When I compared the ends of both the Knafo march and the Tel-Aviv-Tahrir Occupy with the truncated protests against the expulsion-demolition of Labor Hill, the packed room made the connection to Gaza before I could spell it out.
They had chosen the date carefully. The public, exhausted by Gaza , was preparing for the second most sacred Jewish holiday.
At dusk on Rosh Hashana Eve, the entire country shuts down. That morning, Labor Hill residents had posted a call-to- arms on Facebook. A few die-hard Ah.

The developers and police assumed, and rightly so, that not many activists would disrupt the first day of the Jewish New Year to hold mass protests in solidarity. Instead, concerned citizens brought potluck to share with families whose homes were demolished. Together, they prayed and ate the holiday meals in front of the rubble. One people, one heart Figure 4: Residents of Labor Hill eat their Rosh Hashanah meal in front of their demolished homes.
For the first time in their lives, they consid- ered voting for ultranationalist parties, despite the courtship and perks promised by the Labor-Meretz bloc. Elections were scheduled for The Knesset, nevertheless, voted to dissolve in December This sequence followed the same familiar cycle as years prior and points to the convergence of the two timelines: the Israel-Palestine binary clock tracked by international news, and the intra-Jewish racism masked from view by the Hebrew-to- English translation block.
That operation in turn led to an early October call for elections after parliamentary gridlock over a draconian budget proposal for the upcoming year. In just the same way, a timely Palestinian suicide bomb ended the Knafo march—a protest that had become possible thanks to a lull in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The political center moved to the right, and Netanyahu was elected prime minister.
So here they go again. On March 17, , Israelis went to the polls for early parliamen- tary elections. Of the Knesset seats, Likud won 30 and the Zionist Union won Reading Rose's constant exclamations of "crappy doodles" was also not fun the second time through.
He started to think of Jaehyun again. The Magicians: It taught that no one could know whether prayers or masses for the dead benefited an individual soul, and it was better to offer prayers for "the universal congregation of Christian people, quick and dead".
Lest we forget, this is a day for hundreds of families to visit military ceme- teries and mourn loved ones In May , three Lutheran theologians from Germany — Franz Burchard, vice-chancellor of Saxony; Georg von Boineburg, doctor of law; and Friedrich Myconius , superintendent of the church in Gotha — arrived in London and held conferences with English bishops and clergy at the archbishop's Lambeth Palace through September.
