My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give Rose by Any Other Name (The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series, Book 10) by Becki Willis, 5 stars.

I loved this book!! I had only read the first book in the series before I picked up this one, so I missed what went on in between, but the author did a great job of making me feel like I didn’t miss a thing. The characters are what really make this series so good. All of the ones you love are back, as well as some new ones. This is a cozy mystery book that will keep you guessing until the end. I had an idea, but didn’t know exactly what was going on, and was definitely surprised at the end. I love that in a whodunit!! What makes this exceptional to me was getting the teenagers in on their own mystery. It wasn’t added as an afterthought or just to pull in younger readers. This was blended into the book in such a way that had you guessing which mystery was more important. I absolutely loved this. The teens are smart and hard-working — they don’t expect the adults to do everything, but at the same time they know when to ask for help.

These mysteries together made for an exceptional book that I could not put down. I will definitely be reading more from this series.

I cannot believe I have not read any of the others in this series. Becki Willis is a mastermind. In this book there are technically two mysteries going on at the same time. The stories flowed well together that I never got the two mysteries confused. The characters do make up the stories. They are complex and fully developed. The first mystery is a new woman is moving into the town and all the women are trying to figure her out. They want to know everything about this newcomer.The second story is about Blake and his summer job. He gathers up his sisters and forms a junior detective group. I highly recommend this story to find out if both parties figure out what is happening. I cannot wait to go back and read some other Becki Willis stories.

Suspicion from the start as the town people notice things from day one that just don’t fit. Investigated by chief Brash, it gets even more weird. Things continue to not add up. You will enjoy this book, a smooth read and one that keeps your attention until the end. A good job by author Becki Willis, I highly recommend this author and book.

Looking for a mystery you’ve found it here with a who done it story, that’ll keep you glued to the pages wondering what happens next! This is my first read by this author and I was skeptical I’d like the book but was I wrong! once I started I couldn’t put it down. Even though this is part of a series this can be read as a stand-alone but I bet like me you’ll want to read the series now!

Rose by Any Other Name (The Sisters, Texas #10)Rose by Any Other Name by Becki Willis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was gripped from page one by this novel which has drama, crime, suspense, romance and mystery as well as great characters. Based in a small town, ‘The Sisters’, during a long hot Texas summer a mysterious new comer arrives in the community and instantly the gossip starts. No one knows who Rose Belvedere is or why she has chosen The Sisters as a place to live but the locals are sure that a body was put into her moving van. Chief Brash deCordova’s police department is over run with calls all saying the same thing but without probable cause all he can do is make inquiries. However when Madison, from ‘In a Pinch Professional Services’ who is known as being a “dead-body magnet”, does find a body her husband, the Chief must investigate the murder. Meanwhile sixteen year old Blake has a summer job and finds himself in the middle of his own mystery to solve. Along with his sisters they decide to form a junior section of “In a Pinch Professional Services” would be sleuths.
This is a wonderfully written cozy mystery which kept me hooked from beginning to end and with all the twists and turns it also kept me guessing. The storyline flows nicely making it an easy read and the plot has plenty going on which kept me fully immersed in the story. I loved all the main characters, who are part of Madison’s, ‘In a Pinch Professional Services’ and thought that the husband and wife duo of Madison and the Chief were a perfect crime solving couple who worked well together to discover the killer before they could strike again.
Although it is book ten of a series it can be read as a standalone story, however, as I was new to this author and this series I did feel that I would have understood Madison’s backstory better and learnt how ‘In a Pinch’ came into being if I had read the previous books first. I think if the books are read in order than the reader may enjoy this novel even more and would get to know all the fascinating characters. Having enjoyed this book I am now keen to read the previous novels in this series and am pleased to have discovered a new author.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a great mystery story, that kept you gripped. It is set in a small town and really captures the essence of that with all the locals gossiping and reporting to the police.

There is a new arrival to The Sisters and her arrival causes a bit of a stir. Rose is the new person in town. She seems nice enough but can looks be deceiving?

When Brash the local police officer gets numerous calls regarding a supposed dead body wrapped in a carpet he goes to investigate. Finding nothing that leads him to believe that’s true he moves on putting it down to the residents imaginations.

That is until his wife finds a dead body. Does this mean that all the residents where right in what they saw? Could the dead body really have left Rose’s house wrapped in a rug? Who is Rose and why has she moved to The Sisters. With so many questions and not a lot of answer Brash involves his wife and her friends as undercover sleuths to find out what really went on behind the closed doors.

Rose by Any Other Name (The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series, Book 10) by Becki Willis is an intriguing cozy murder mystery that has everything to make it a story not to be missed. With mystery and suspense, murder and fear, lies and secrets. It is another great story in the series and can be read as a stand-alone. This is a wonderfully written story and Becki has managed to weave it all together to give us something that is engaging and is a page turner. The wonderful characters are real, flawed and all and will win your heart.

This caper left me glued to my seat. I thoroughly enjoy how Willis weaves her stories together and this latest installment in The Sisters Texas series is another winner. I really enjoy how the characters are tangible, flawed, and downright funny. There is humor even in the dark and twisted. This whodunit isn’t a scare fest but it immediately jumps in and makes you wonder exactly who Rose is and what in the world has happened? If you’ve ever lived in a small town you’ll appreciate how true this rings in situation and dynamic. I have enjoyed each of the books in this series and hope to read more from this author soon. Mystery lovers – pick up this series immediately!

4 ½ Stars

A Rose By Any Other Name is Book #10 in The Sister, Texas Mystery series by Becki Willis. This is another wonderful cosy mystery to add to the already fantastic series- but you don’t have to read the whole series in order to appreciate this book, as it can easily be read as a standalone.
The story is a tightly woven and very intriguing cozy murder mystery, with a wonderful cast of characters, crime, investigation, drama, suspense, and more.
Things heat up when a mysterious newcomer arrives in town, who soon gets tongues wagging, but not in the way you might imagine. But in a “is that a body?” kind of way. Then Maddy makes a disturbing discovery- and the mystery begins.
Really well written, with all the ingredients you expect from a great mystery. I am really enjoying exploring this superb series!

Thank you, Becki Willis!

Rose by any Other Name (The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series #10) by Becki Willis

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. This can be read as a stand alone although it’s part of The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series. Willis has done an amazing job by bringing these characters to life. Two separate mysteries solved by mother and son.

Madison, Momma Maddy, as the kids call her, finds herself in a bind. Her car is sabotaged by someone. She thinks she knows who it is, but when the truth comes out things change. The quote I chose for Madison is: “Believe me, I like it. I thank my lucky stars every day that I’m your wife.”

Blake, Madison’s son, finds a box while he’s working. What he finds is that a long lost lover got away. Wanting to help out the guy he is doing yard work for, he gets his sisters help. When their teacher’s mom comes to town the mystery solves itself. The quote I chose for Blake is: “I wouldn’t be surprised, if he didn’t finally put that ring on her finger. I think they’ll be married by fall.”

This is a great crime and mystery book. Highly recommended.
