Nora does it again
This was a real page turner, and as with most of Nora Robert's books, i'm anticipating reading the rest of this series. Her writings always seem to touch the heart and make fictional characters come to life, or atleast make us feel as though we know them.
"I LOVE N.R's Trilogies"
I won't bore you with the storyline, as you can read alot of the other excellent reviews on story narration published here.
I love N.R's Trilogies. This is one of my favorite. I OVER LOVE the Three Sister's Island trilogy, my most favorite of all.
In this one, we start out with a ghost haunting... it takes the lives/loves of three fabulous couples to find the answers to Who? What? Where? When? and How? Kinda like a mystery within a romance.
I am not big into mysteries, cuz I am a romantic at heart, so the mystery does not overshadow the romanace and gives a little intrigue.... I DID enjoy this haunting.
You start with Stella, widow and mother of two boys, who finds Logan; continue on with Roz and Mitch, 40's, three grown boys and the 'matriarch' in this storyline. No, not the mother but the one who brings the 3 women together in her fabulous home and creates a sisterhood/family throughout this trilogy. It will end with Hayley, young pregnant and brave, who struggles with herself before she falls for Harper.
I absolutely LOVED David in here as well, and wish there had been a storyline for him that ended in a romance as well.
This is not the first time I have read this trilogy. I keep and reread these stories every few years. I never want to put the books down.
Great read, but plan for a full week of reading. And, DON'T start the first one unless you have the other two ready to go. "Black Rose" and "Red Lily".
Stella Rothchild widowed at a young age with two boys to raise, uproots her life and moves to Tennessee to take a job managing a thriving nursery. Almost immediately, she feels at home at the home her employer Roz Harper provides her and her sons. As they bring in another lost soul Hayley into the fold, Stella feels a bond with the other two women, and feels like she belongs at Harper House, and couldn't be happier about her decision to move.
When she meets landscape designer Logan Kitridge, sparks ignite, and as Stella finds herself drawn to Logan, things start to happen that she can't understand. It appears that the ghost living within the confines of Harper House doesn't like Stella and Logan exploring a relationship. While everyone admits to the ghost always being a presence, they have never suffered the ire that the ghost directs toward Stella.
This is a very well written mystery, and the characters are wonderful. While we are introduced to the key six main characters, the supporting characters like David are priceless. Only pieces of the story of the Harper bride are disclosed, and the rest of the story promises to be exciting.
"Blue Dahlia" was a good introductory book for the In the Garden series. The story line is good and I like that it makes the characters research the family history.
This book is about Stella Rothchild who is a mother of two and recently widowed. She moves to Tennessee with hopes of a new job and to be closer to her dad and stepmom. She meets Logan Kitridge, a landscaper at her new job, while they clash at first sparks fly a little later. While their romance is heating up, the ghost that also resides in the Harper House makes it known that she doesn't approve of this new relationship.
Like one of the other reviewers noted it seemed like the relationship between Stella and Logan was a little rushed. I found myself wanting to read about Hayley and Harper more, since they had sparks from when they first met. This book was pretty good and I will be reading the rest in this series.
The book was fabulous, as always, but the audio is even better. Susie Breck has a lovely voice and is especially good with a southern accent. I was absolutely enthralled.
