I love the characters and I love Nora Roberts. I can only rate this 4 stars because I was left feeling that she didn't develop the story enough, probably because it's part of a trilogy. Most of her trilogies are three complete stores, Boonsboro Inn and now In the Garden made me feel that she was stretching too thin. I would rather she does one great novel than 3. I'm hoping to read the latest Nora Roberts novels and see them as complete. She's been my favorite author, but I feel cheated.

I hated the start of this story and thought I'd stop after 5 minutes until I understood the bigger picture of the story and I persevered through it
I am not big of tragedy driven stories but this truly becomes unbelievable. Each character is introduced with little tid bits of why they are the way they are and you see these characters become a kind of family even though most of them are not related as they work to uncover the historical ghost that is a resident - and really angry about what the home owner's past relative did to her.
This is the start of the investigation and it is unbelievable. You want to know why the ghost shows herself, where she is, who precisely she is and how these characters are going to assist her.
Ghost stories sound stupid I know but these characters are all different. The discussions and quoted conversations are authentic. And you hear them grow.
Roselyn the main character who owns the home is something of a cold creature you think until you move past this book, book one of the series, and to book two and and three and you learn she is a strong but soft woman.
The whole series was great fun! What is better than romance, real life issues that need to be solved with a little ghost looming in the background? Loved it all! Seemed realistic and believable.
I loved this series and after the first couple of chapters I bought the others in the series, I enjoyed every one, I sure wish there was more in this series...
Entertaining, eerie, and exciting
Any Nora Roberts romance
Her dead-on Tennessee accent.
Yes, but I made myself stretch it out.
This is a wonderful romance and ghost story. Nora hits every button with suspense and sense of family. Her love of gardening comes through in a beautiful way. Great book.
voice of narrator
Just enjoy them, I can even do housework while listening and I hate housework
This series ranks high in my listening time
The characters where great..
I am not sure if I have but enjoyed this book
I laughed cried and just really enjoyed my time
Totally. This is, so far, my favorite trilogy of Nora Roberts'. It's about a ghost who haunts a family and the women around it. I just love it.
Stella. As a widow and a mother whose life was yanked out from beneath her, she was really easy to relate to. I could imagine myself in her position.
In this one...Hayley hands down through out the entire trilogy Hayley was the one who wrang with the most amazing... truth.
The past never dies, it reached through time to make itself known.
When Nora Roberts does paranormal, she does it right. I wish I could be in her shoes, the amount of research, through plottin, and wonderful character creation. I just love her!
This is one of my favorite series by Nora Roberts. I love the stories that take place in Ireland but this was so perfect. The characters were great, and as always Ms Roberts gives you a wonderful local description as well as information. In this case about gardening. Susie Breck brought this story to life, I can't think of anyone who could have done a better job with this story. She had the accents without being cheesy. With just enough "spooky" to add interest.
