Publisher's Summary

Secret societies, serial killers, and a seriously snarky PI.

When Ginger Mitchell finds out her mother committed suicide, she packs up her life as a Vegas "dancer" (hey, somebody's gotta do it) and drives her cherry-red SUV straight home to Portland. Without a disapproving mom to rebel against, what was the point? 

When she arrives back in her hometown, she finds a lot more going on than fancy food trucks and put-a-bird-on-it hipsters. 

Murders are being passed off as suicides. College-aged women keep going missing. And then there's the troubling spate of mobsters who keep inviting her out to eat. 

With a pile of cash saved from her last job and no one around to tell her not to, Ginger decides to become a private investigator, to find out exactly what's gone wrong in the City of Roses. First up: Her mother's "suicide." 

Includes the first six novellas in the Roseland series, Home Is Where the Start Is, The Ruth Is Out There, The Body in the Pool, Amber Alert, Jane Dead, Welcome to Roseland.

Great Detective Book With Some Supernatural

(What I liked) Candace was fantastic in this. (My first time listening to her) Ginger Mitchell is snarky,funny,sharp and knows how to put herself in the criminal shoes to catch them. There are six cases in the book. Each are 2 to 5 hours long per. (Fucking awesome) And no time jumps between cases so far. (I really hate time jumps) (What I didn't like) Chapters are really short and theres 227 chapters Like no chapter longer than 15 minutes and chapters shorter than a minute (But I started to like it so I don't know why I'm writing this) Overall first non litrpg Eric Ugland book and I'm really enjoying it.Love all the characters and cases didn't over stay there welcome And the main character has this I've seen it all feel to her then 5 minutes later she out of her league. My favorite case is Amber Alert Apologies for my shit writing

Holy Shit! Ugland you go boy!

If the title to this review is too much for you, then, this book might not be for you. If you are reading this review because the title got you to this point, then, this book is for you! This book totally surprised me over and over again. Each time I thought I was impressed soon, as I read, I was pleasantly surprised and impressed all over again. The seamless immersion into character depth, character relationships and an interesting and totally believable storyline kept me GLUED to this book. If you you have read Ugland in the past, he carries that enthusiasm and "thinking outside of the box" writing right with him. I would have thought a hot chick with some energy and gumption wrote this if I did not pick up the book because Ugland was listed as the author. I listened to the audible book. the reader was the best that I have heard in a long time.

Not usually into this Genre but loved it

I usually do a lot more sci-fi and fantasy books, and haven't read any mystery, suspense or detective novels in a long time, but I really loved this book. I really liked the MC and her partner Rhino, partly because I live in Oregon though not in portland loved the setting. I just found it a much more interesting P.I./detective novel then any I tried before. Definitely recommend

So good

Alright so I was debating on this book for a good while should I get it should I not I kind of Go for fantasy and scifi also supernatural this book does have some supernatural aspect Which I wish it Said it did But it doesn't Pretty much the characters in this book are so enjoyableThe main character is very likable She pretty much goes on cases and I do mean cases She's not a Martial arts fighter or any ability of the type I don't want to say too much but if you want a Enjoyable story to listen to and likable characters get the book There is only really one sex scene in this work and that's in the beginning and it's really not Anything

LONG BUT NEVER BORING!!!

This is a first for me by Eric Ugland. There was NEVER a BORING moment. This is so different than most of the mysteries that I've listened to but I enjoyed it from start to finish. The narrator was absolutely excellent. Candace Thaxton was terrific at her portrayal of different characters which made it easy to follow who was talking. I see the next book is even longer than this one but I'm so looking forward to moving right into it! So worth the credit!

Oh man WOW 🤩

I have been a big fan of Eric Ugland since I found his “The Good Guys Series”! And when I saw this I thought well he is a solid writer so why not give it a chance! I had no idea that it would be a such a great book with nonstop action, intrigue, suspense, and great investigative skills with research and discovery. Characters are well done, solid backgrounds, and believable attitudes and personalities! I WANT MORE!

Virtue signal much?

Good story, but wow, I haven’t heard so many cliche tropes in one story, ever. This reads like a male feminists perception filter and given the propensity for male feminists to be rapey pedometer [sic] types, I am mildly concerned about the implications... Not bad but so predictable it is a boring story. Kinda disappointed.
