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)
Hayley. She's an amazing character that I could also put myself into her shoes. I could in all of them.
Hayley and Lily. They were adorable and true to life.
Both. It was really easy to put myself into the shoes of everywoman in this series, but Hayley espically, because it reminded me of myself if my husband had never come home from Iraq. He did, so I'm not complaining. But I could totally see myself in her shoes.
Wonderful end to the series. I was seriously seriously seriously sad to see it go.
this story is romantic the setting is a very. Oriented story referencing the 18 hundreds and the present time a wonderful family lots of personal interrelationships to enjoy in the story with lots of detail and suspense. Great Ghost Story. Loved it!
I am a salesperson on the road everyday, mother of 2 grown children. Happily married
A great conclusion to a great three book series. Nora Roberts never disappoints. Enjoying this book was pleasurable
This book was read so beautifully. This book is just a wonderful, beautiful escape. The trilogy is fantastic.
I truly felt the change in Susie's voice and inflection of her tone created characters I loved.
I drive a lot for work so i couldn't wait to get to it each time i got into my car
delightful southern accents
This is one of Nora's trilogies: you get three women in different stages of their lives becoming friends and meeting their true loves. These happen to be great women in an interesting situation, dealing with a fourth: a ghost who haunts them all in turn. I like the characters and the situation. Always makes me want to drop everything and go garden, then drink some sweet tea or co'cola.
Again: delightful southern accents. She gets the difference between Tennessee, Georgia, and Arkansas accents. Her intonation is spot on, she can age her voice as appropriate, and she adds emotion beautifully. She really makes it delightful to listen to one of my favorite series.
I love this series, so when I needed an audiobook for a road trip, I decided to pick a favorite. I'm so glad I did--the narrator is perfect and adds to much to the story.
Say something about yourself!
Less of a silly, unbelievable, ridiculous story. Not every thought a person has needs to be put down on paper!!!!!
Not Nora Roberts
Just about anyone. The whining tone that Hayley had was SO absolutely annoying I had to stop after chapter 7. Listened to last 2 chapters and was even more glad I didn't waste my time listening to the middle. Sometimes Nora Roberts is good, and sometimes she can just stink. This one was a real Stinker.
Hayley. Could anyone whine more than this woman?
