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...

Critic Reviews

"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)

Great finale

This was the best of the three books. The romance was mild, but sweet. The ending could have been a little longer, but it was still good.

I really enjoyed all 3 of the books in this series

Miss Roberts is a brilliant author, I'm hooked. I cried at some point in each book. Beautifully written, the characters were very well thought out.
I could really picture them and at times guess there next move, I felt like I really knew them.

ENCHANTING

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book was read so beautifully. This book is just a wonderful, beautiful escape. The trilogy is fantastic.

What about Susie Breck’s performance did you like?

I truly felt the change in Susie's voice and inflection of her tone created characters I loved.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I drive a lot for work so i couldn't wait to get to it each time i got into my car<br/>

narrator so good I was talking "southern"

If you could sum up Red Lily in three words, what would they be?

delightful southern accents

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What does Susie Breck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.
