Red Lily: In the Garden, Book 3 | [Nora Roberts]

Red Lily: In the Garden, Book 3

Hayley Phillips came to Memphis hoping for a new start, for herself and her unborn child. What she found was a home, said to be haunted but surrounded by beauty and friends - including Roz's son Harper. 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.

Publisher's Summary

A Harper has always lived at Harper House, the centuries-old mansion just outside of Memphis. And for as long as anyone alive remembers, the ghostly Harper Bride has walked the halls, singing lullabies at night...

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...

    "Great Listen!"

    First of all I read the book years ago and loved it. Of the three this one is the best. The narrator is excellent (great southern accent.) Credit worthy listen!

    "Great Series"

    Romance part predictable. The story itself kept you listening. Enjoyed the series, Nora always does a great job. Most are so predictable its hard to listen to after second book, not the case with this one. I only reviewed last book since it was a series. No regrets on purchase, buy it you wont be sorry.

    "So Sad this is the LAST book - I love it!"

    There is nothing better than a story you don't want to put down. This Garden Series in my opinion is the best of the Nora Roberts' series I've listen to thus far.

    She perfectly mixes the characters in like the best mix of salt and pepper on creamed corn. You learn about each character and listen to each of their lives develop before you, watch relationships grow - all while being addicted to learning, like the character do, more about this "family ghost."

    I was absolutely sad to be at the end of the series and honestly felt a pain in my heart.

    All characters come full circle and the story is completely unveiled and you learn more by hearing the characters visit neighbors who had stories from their own ancestors passed down.

    It's just perfect...absolutely perfect and the voice over artist speaks in different tons and conversational and not slow - she speaks at a faster pace and I loved it.

    "An enjoyable book for readers of romance"
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Susie Breck?

    This is my second book of Nora Roberts. I chose this one because I had listened to THE WITNESS and loved it.


    Would you recommend Red Lily to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not unless they were really into romance. A bit too drawn out for me, but I still enjoyed the story.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably


    Any additional comments?

    If you can't sleep this book will be helpful.

    "Profound exploration of woman character"

    The way characters are pictured is a sign of deep penetrating into the human nature. Besides, the narrator is a real enjoyment!

    "Yikes"

    5 stars for all the books in this series. This one gave us more of an interaction between the ghost Amelia, Lily and Harper. Scared me pea green in more than one part. Of course not being real brave with thing's I can't fight. It would scare me silly. Seems as though when Ms. Roberts writes a good book, no one does it better for sure. And this whole series has been very good as far as I am concerned. The narration is also very well done by Susie Breck.

    "A Perfect Ending To A Wonderful Trilogy"

    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!

    "Wonderful ending"
    What did you love best about Red Lily?

    I love how well everything was wrapped up in the end. There were no lingering questions.


    What about Susie Breck’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    It's been a long time since I've read or listened to anything by Nora Roberts. This was a great reintroduction!
