I'm about half way through this book and am LOVING it!!! Nora Roberts is an excellent author!
My Boss gave me this book, she had bought at a sale. She knew that I love Nora Roberts. Since it was the second in a trilogy and I am a vivid Nora reader I knew I had to read the first book " Blue Dahilia" then "Black Rose" and ending with" Red Lily" Great read thru and thru..
Book 2 in the Trilogy Awesome book
Second book in the Garden Trilogy
Book Two of the In the Garden Trilogy. EXCELLENT - READ THE SERIES!
"Nora Roberts at her best"
In Memphis, forty-five year old Rosalind "Roz" Harper for the most part feels good about life mostly because of the young that has brought her family home Harper House back to life. Her "son" David takes good care of the estate. Her In the Garden's nursery manager Stella Rothchild does likewise although the mother of two young sons will probably leave once she weds her beloved Logan. Finally her beloved employee Hayley Philips has a delightful newborn who makes Roz feel like an indulgent grandmother.
The two flaws in Roz optimistic outlook are the return of her sponge of an ex husband Bryce Clerk doing what he does best trying to live off someone else with Roz his target and the mystery of the Harper Bride ghost. The former is a question of ignoring him though Bryce keeps pushing; the latter is to much a presence to pretend she is not there so Roz hires genealogist Dr. Mitch Carnegie to look into her past. Mitch quickly becomes a ghost believer even as he falls in love with his reluctant client, who ponders a second chance after the failure of her first attempt at marriage.
This paranormal family drama is a Nora that can stand alone but reading the previous novel, BLUE DAHLIA, enhances the experience as the audience will have a taste how far the Harper "extended" family including ghosts has come. The ensemble cast seems genuine and clues to the mystery of the ghost augment the novel. Nora Roberts is at her best with the first two novels of the Garden trilogy leaving readers to anticipate quite a finish to the miniseries.
Another really great book by Nora Roberts
Book 2 of the In the Garden Trilogy. Loved it.
Wonderful continuation as the 2nd book in the "In the Garden" trilogy.
I am really enjoying reading this series.
Second book in the Garden Trilogy. The mystery continues as love continues to grow.
I truly enjoyed this series from Nora Roberts. It mixes the present with the past, and eventually everything makes sense. Black Rose is about Roselyn, the owner of a gardens store, who is the only daughter to inherit her families old house/mansion. She eventually finds love, despite having a nasty divorce.
I just love Nora Roberts.
I loved this trilogy. Mystery-Romance with a little gardening mixed in.
This is number 2 in a trilogy from New York Times bestselling author, Nora Roberts. Rosalind Harper is an independent woman who thought love was behind her when romance takes her by surprise. However, the secret of the Harper house tries to keep her from this second chance. Along with two other women who meet in a crossroads in their lives, she find the courage to embrace the future.

Excellent book as usual from Nora Roberts.
this book was a great read.
I was a bit disappointed that this book wasn't all I remembered "Blue Dahlia" to be, but it was an okay read. More predictable than I wanted, but I'm still looking to read "Red Lilly".
