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.

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.

    "It Starts Different...and Slow.."

    But I truly love the beautiful story. Once we got into the ghost. I still had questions about the baby girl that died at the beginning of the story. Wondering if it was the Harper Bride???

    Story
    "Another of my favorite NR series."

    This is one of my favorite Nora Roberts series. Lovely women characters who form their own bonds, and the men who love them. Breck is a little weak in her narration of the audio. Worth the purchase in any format.

    Story
    "Loved!!!"

    I love Nora Roberts and can't wait to finish this trilogy. The story is so dynamic and each chapter flows perfectly. A widow raising her 2 boys. A love connection between 2 co-workers. And a creepy ghost who has a love for children. What's not to love?! The narrator makes all the side gestures to make the characters come alive that aren't in the book (all the sighs, ugh, screams, etc).

    Story
    "Classic Southern Romantic Mystery"

    Although this is an older book, the story is a classic Nora Roberts that never gets old. Part mystery, part romance, part family drama featuring strong, smart women and true southern gentlemen. All three books in this series are entertaining, especially to anyone who enjoys gardening.
