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.
I love how well everything was wrapped up in the end. There were no lingering questions.
Susie was wonderful. All of her lead female characters had such distinct voices that there was never a question about who was speaking. And her southern drawl was like butter.
It's been a long time since I've read or listened to anything by Nora Roberts. This was a great reintroduction!
My favorite books are thriller/mystery series...such as John Sandford, Jonathan Kellerman, Patricia Cornwell, etc.. Also like sci-fi.
Yes. Excellent story and characters-one of her best trilogies.
All of them.
No-just enjoyed hearing it again after 10 years.
Red Lily was the perfect end to a great trilogy by Nora Roberts. I enjoyed all three In The Garden Books. This one was a little more graphic than the others but not so much as to but you off the book just a little more than the others. If you read the first two then you have to read Red Lily it wraps things up for the series and gives you even more information about the Harper Bride.
well o thought blue dahlia was gonna be my favorite but then you just cant help falling in love with lilly and her mom and harper this was read great
I read so I can write
Nora Roberts never disappoints. She has wound a mysterious ghost story through three novels about some interesting and enjoyable characters. Hayley is the kind of girl you gotta root for and when the ghost abuses her it builds the suspense. Great ending.
Ms Breck does a great job throughout all three books.
I had to force myself to come back and finish this book. Long, drawn out story too much filler. Would have been a very good shorter book. The narrator did a good job.
I had a hard time listening to the accent. It distracted me from the story. The narrator did a great job with accent, but it was too much for me and I'm from Texas!
