I like to read stories about dogs, mysteries that are a little but humorous, stories about relationships that are not too explicate, Christian fiction and stories revolving around knitting and quilting.
This series was a nice break from cozy mysteries I have been reading. More corse language and intimacy than I am accustomed to but I am going to finish the series.
I thought book one had a slow start but once I got into it it was good. The story seems to draw me in a little more in book two. I am anxious to see how Nora Roberts finishes this one off.
I loved the careful and descriptive character development of Roz and Mitch.
I enjoyed learning a few things about gardening.
Nora Roberts puts careful work into fully developing her characters and plot. Her books don't come to an abrupt end that leaves you feeling cheated of time spent on a happy ending!
I think the narrator was awesome!
I can't wait to read the third book in this series.
Not quite the top but up there.
The other In the Garden books. All three books were connected, but they could stand alone.
I really loved Hailey, she was so funny.
I wanted to listen to the WHOLE series in one sitting......and I did listen to it twice in a weeks time.
The love scenes where hot, but very tasteful. It ignited the fire in me again, Roz was the closest to my age so it was so much fun thinking about she and Mitch making love.
Enjoy this series, on the third book right now. The favorite part of the book for me is the gardening thread running through it. Like the strong character of the female boss and matriarch. Not real deep reading, but wanted to keep listening until the conclusion.
With the second book in this series, the anticipation and excitement continues. After finishing the first book in this series, I immediately had to red book 2. Wow! The Harper Bride really has a temper and Susie Breck, the narrator, comes through again by drawing a picture with her voice of just how she feels. Once you’ve finished this book, be prepared to dive head first into book 3. It is irresistible and compelling. Did I mention I love this series?
Great story and series but once again southern does not mean stupid. I will never understand why actors & narrators think everyone from the south is a hick & should sound like one. The character of Hayley is read in such a way you think she doesn't have a lick of sense when she's quite intelligent. However, that is my only complaint. Otherwise, the book is perfect.
This is an interesting story about a bipolar ghost and a band of people working together to make sure she rests in peace.
Ros was a great character. She is confident and doesn't tolerate nonsense. I liked how the relationship blossemed between her and Mitch. I appreciated how Mitch could so easily admit his downfalls and mistakes in the past. It shows us as readers that not everyone in these stories are perfect. I really liked this book and look forward to the finishing the series.
I have read most of Nora Roberts books. The In the Garden Trilogy is my favorite and Black Rose is my favorite of the three. It was fun to revisit the books in audio format - hearing the characters accents make them even more real.
