In Search Of The Rose Notes: A Novel

by Emily Arsenault

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | May 7, 2013 | Trade Paperback

In Search Of The Rose Notes: A Novel is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.

Eleven-year-olds Nora and Charlotte were best friends. When their teenage babysitter, Rose, disappeared under mysterious circumstances, the girls decided to “investigate.” But their search—aided by paranormal theories and techniques gleaned from old Time-Life books—went nowhere.

Years later, Nora, now in her late twenties, is drawn back to her old neighborhood—and to her estranged friend—when Rose’s remains are finally discovered. Upset over their earlier failure to solve the possible murder, Charlotte is adamant that they join forces and try again. But Nora was the last known person to see Rose alive, and she’s not ready to revisit her troubled adolescence and the events surrounding the disappearance—or face the disturbing secrets that are already beginning to reemerge.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not just a mystery When Rose, the baby sitter,disappears, her two charges decide they can find her using paranormal means. However as time goes on each girl deals with the emptiness in different ways, leading them to drift apart. It is only with the discovery of Rose's remains can they come back together and heal. I found this to be a compelling read that wasn't so much about who had killed the babysitter but about a community that was unable to get beyond the incident and learn to live life again. And the two friends and their relationship through the years made the novel very true to life.

Editorial Reviews

Emily Arsenault’s absorbing second book, “In Search of the Rose Notes,” is at least as much a novel as a detective story.... Ms. Arsenault here reveals strange truths beneath everyday surfaces and shows that truth sometimes isn’t all that strange.
