It's been a month since Denim McHart hung up his private investigating career after he ended up with a bullet in his leg. The injury has forced Den to re-evaluate future goals in his career, his love-life and his spiritual life. To keep himself busy in early retirement, he's been attempting to restore an antique table and he's officially bored. He can't seem to keep his mind off his investigative partner, the lovely and complicated Sylvia Price whom he's had an on-again, off-again romantic relationship with. In this past month, Sylvia has been dealing with her own feelings for Den, her overwhelming guilt for the pivotal event that happened years ago and caused her mother to be mentally unstable. Before the sparks can fly between Den and Sylvia, she says they've got a case. Jilted bride Naomi Deva tells them her groom--Mayor Thomas Julian--dumped her at the altar. The local police department hasn't been able to turn up the 6.1 carat diamond engagement ring.

"In the first Denim Blues mystery, Wiesner pens both an excellent love story and mystery while bringing the Lord's words and forgiveness into the story to help Sylvia with her healing process." ~RT Book Reviews http://www.rtbookreviews.com 5 Stars! “This is an excellent start to a newest series by author Karen Wiesner. With a mixture of Nick and Nora Charles, throw in a little bit of Perry Mason and you have a page turner that will keep the reader involved in the plot right to the very end.” ~Miss Lynn's Books-N-More 5 Stars! “This is an excellent start to the newest series by the author Karen Wiesner. I’m reminded of some of my favorites from the past: Nick and Nora Charles and Perry Mason. This is a real page-turner. It held my attention to the very last word. Mystery fans will not want to miss RETIRED AND ON THE ROCKS.” ~Readers... More > Favorite 4.5 Stars! “This is a story that presents wonderful characters, romance, mystery, and a forgiveness message in a clean, fun and engaging read. Denim is sexy, charming and handy to have around in a crisis. The mystery unfolds while Sylvia and Den engage in sharp, snappy dialogue with lots of humor that will make you smile. Underlying the romance and mystery is Sylvia’s emotional and spiritual struggle. The faith based messages are not preachy but are clear and direct as part of the characters’ life fabric. The emotions and mystery keep you pulled into the story from start to finish as you read to discover Sylvia’s secrets, how she resolves her love choices and how they solve the mystery. Ms. Wiesner has a great talent for writing real to life characters and issues with warmth and humor. If you enjoy inspirational stories, romance and mystery this is a story you won’t want to miss.” ~Reviews by Martha’s Bookshelf 4 Stars! “I do not read much Christian Romance, but, when I do, Karen Wiesner is one of my absolute favorite authors. This story will clearly show you why. The case involving an expensive ring begins and ends here. It is a stand-alone tale. The private lives of the main characters get equal time. The author does not force religion down the throat of the reader, but the characters' beliefs certainly help each one to deal with personal troubles. I find this jewel to be a fulfilling story of trust and faith. Memorable!” ~Huntress Reviews< Less
