Hayley Phillips came to Memphis hoping for a new start, for herself and her unborn child. She wasn't looking for a handout from her distant cousin Roz, just a job at her thriving In the Garden nursery.
What she found was a home surrounded by beauty and the best friends she's ever had - including Roz's son Harper. To Hayley's delight, her new daughter Lily has really taken to him. But to Hayley's chagrin, she has begun to dream about Harper - as much more than a friend.
If Hayley gives in to her desire, she's afraid the foundation she's built with Harper will come tumbling down. Especially since she's begun to suspect that her feelings are no longer completely her own.
Flashes of the past and erratic behavior make Hayley believe that the Harper Bride has found a way inside of her mind and body. It's time to put the Bride to rest once and for all, so Hayley can know her own heart again - and whether she's willing to risk it...

"The consistently excellent Roberts brings her In the Garden trilogy to a spooky, sexy conclusion with this spellbinding romance that beautifully celebrates the power of love in all its guises." (Booklist)
"Susie Breck portrays Hayley with an appealing Southern accent....Tight pacing, clear narration, and expert timing make this a suspenseful addition for anyone who enjoys an erotic, romantic, AND spooky story." (AudioFile)
What a twist.
All through the book you think you know what the end will be yet it catches you totally by suprise!
It is difficult to say which is my favorite between books 2 and 3. This book, as expected, explains much about what happened so long ago. There is very little down time in book 3 and a great deal of surprises. The Harper bride is stronger than ever in this novel and even the publisher’s summary doesn’t come close to describing how much she forces herself into the lives of all the characters. The way the truth is revealed and the path they take to find it is worth both the time and investment. Again, if possible, try to read these books in order. It only adds to the experience and makes the truth so much more satisfying. This is a wonderful series and I can’t recommend it enough!

Yes............entertaining! I really liked her story line...........in the trilogy, she told everyone's story. It was a complete series and that takes talent!
Ghostly encounters and story line!
Write another trilogy like this one......
Say something about yourself!
This is the 3rd book in her "In the Garden" series. I was hooked before the middle of the first book and by the time I made it to the 3rd I KNEW these people and did not want the series to end.
I loved the "family" they had all became.
She is to be applauded for the southern accents, made it come alive to me,
I search for Nora Roberts books now. I am a fan.
The house on trad street because of the old southern home that was haunted by a ghost who cannot Passover.
The whole book did.
No, I prefer the audio version due to all my driving.
I have read several Nora Roberts' books. I would compare it to Vision in White and that series.
She did voices that worked for the locale and helped me understand who was speaking.
Not possible in my situation
it flowed beautifully, also showed how much I skip when I read, as I've pretty much always read books first.
It was a great book and provides a good ending.
When Harper tells Hayley that he not only wants to marry her and be a farher to their new baby but to adopt Lily and be her true father as well.
Very good. Her voice and accents were helpful in feeling like part of the story.
The part where they found out what happened to the Harper bride.
