This is an enjoyable chick lit featuring three young, Christian women from well-to-do families, who join forces to become the Rose, a crime-solving clique. The three sleuths who make up the Rose consist of: Lorna, whose malapropisms add a touch of humor; Heather, whose karate ability provides some intense action scenes; and Britton, the progtagonist, who keeps her Glock 30 handy and knows how to use it. They solve crimes and anonymously help the police by leaving clues along with a rose. Although it's the third book in the trilogy, it can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.The story moves along at a good pace; the characters are well-rounded and believable. There's a time when the reader will hold her breath and a time when she will sigh with satisfaction. It's a good choice for a light-hearted romance mystery.
