Trying to escape the ghosts of the past, young widow Stella Rothchild, along with her two energetic little boys, has moved back to her roots in southern Tennessee - and into her new life at Harper House and In the Garden nursery. She isn't intimidated by the house - nor its mistress, local legend Roz Harper. Despite a reputation for being difficult, Roz has been nothing but kind to Stella, offering her a comfortable new place to live and a challenging new job as manager of the flourishing nursery.
As Stella settles comfortably into her new life, she finds a nurturing friendship with Roz and with expectant mother Hayley. And she discovers a fierce attraction with ruggedly handsome landscaper Logan Kitridge.
But someone isn't happy about the budding romance...the Harper Bride. As the women dig into the history of Harper House, they discover that grief and rage have kept the Bride's spirit alive long past her death. And now, she will do anything to destroy the passion that Logan and Stella share.

"Roberts, the queen of romance, launches a new trilogy with a captivating tale in which her considerable talents at creating richly compelling characters and witty, spellbinding stories come into full bloom in a paranormal-tinged romance." (Booklist)
I am not finished with the book. The plot moves right along without too much conflict, but the narrator is fascinating. I really am amazed at her skill
at narrating. I'll read other books read by her.
Sue Breck can make the characters come to life as she changes her voice for each character.
have not finished it yet. I listen to an hour every night.
Yes, it is another great Nora Roberts book and the narrator was very good.
This is my first Susie Breck performance. I look forward to hearing her again.
Yes, it definitely is.
Nora Roberts lives up to all expectations in this book of the trilogy. I couldn't wait to read the next one.
I loved all things gardening related.
Susie did a great job with voices and accents. I enjoyed listening to her southern twang.
This is one of those trilogies I will read over and over. Each book in this series stands alone, and you don't need to read them all...BUT, each one builds on the ghostly presence and tells her story perfectly to the end. I was left wanting more!
I was disappointed in the quality of the audio book. The narrator's voice was jarring and something about the quality made for background noise that I can't quite explain. This poor quality was in both of the books I bought for $4.95. I think they are just a lower quality that audible should have told me first. I couldn't even finish the book.
I didn't finish it.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Awesome story didn't miss a beat Susie play all the characters superbly my favorites would between the kids and Logan. I wasn't impress with the ending but still gave 5 stars on 2nd book now
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...
