Rosebush by Michelle Jaffe

Instead of celebrating Memorial Day weekend on the Jersey Shore, Jane is in the hospital surrounded by teddy bears, trying to piece together what happened last night. One minute she was at a party, wearing fairy wings and cuddling with her boyfriend. The next, she was lying near-dead in a rosebush after a hit-and-run.

Everyone believes it was an accident, despite the phone threats Jane swears were real. But the truth is a thorny thing. As Jane's boyfriend, friends, and admirers come to visit, more memories surface not just from the party, but from deeper in her past . . . including the night her best friend Bonnie died.

With nearly everyone in her life a suspect now, Jane must unravel the mystery before her killer attacks again. Along the way, she's forced to examine the consequences of her life choices in this compulsively readable thriller

This is the first book I’ve read by Michele Jaffe. In some ways I was disappointed and in others I wasn’t. Rosebush started off a little slow and progressively got more interesting. At one point, I put it down because I just wasn’t in to it. Once I continued reading, I found that it was a really good story. Michele Jaffe knows how to write the creep-factor.
Rosebush is a mysterious, thrilling, page-turner that you won’t be able to put down. Jaffe writes amazing dialogue and killer scenes. People who are into reading books by Sara Shepard will adore Rosebush.
