I actually read the In The Garden books when they first came out. This is my second time around, and they are just as gripping as they were the first time. Roberts has earned her reputation as one of the greatest romance-suspense authors, and I'm never too bored with her books to read them again.

Not as good as newer books

In the Garden (#2) series –set in Memphis, TN - listened to book on audio and the narrator was too southern and country for me which was annoying. The book in itself was ok; however, not as good as some of Nora’s newer books.

In the Garden (#2) series –set in Memphis, TN - listened to book on audio and the narrator was too southern and country for me which was annoying. The book in itself was ok; however, not as good as some of Nora’s newer books.

Rosalind Harper, a 47 strong woman and queen Bof the mansion and owner of In the Garden, a nursery and thriving business. Newlywed Stella and new mother Haley live in the home, her stylish gay assistant, and her son in the guesthouse with some back stabbing southern women and vengeful ex-husband who keeps turning up. A ghost from the past Amelia is still making trouble (a man hater and past relative, whose lover stole her baby at birth as she was the mistress.)

Rosalind hires Mitch and he and Rosalind fall in love and develop a romance, while investigating the ghost and how she died and her connection to the family. Most of the book is about attacks from the ghost Amelia to uncover the truth about the ghost in order to put her to rest. Not one of my favorite series.

    Not as good as Blue Dahlia

    I was really looking forward to reading the 2nd book in the trilogy but I must say I was a little disappointed. Not that it was terrible, but I just didn't find it as interesting and fast paced as the first. I already have # 3, Red Lily, and will be reading that one shortly.

    A good book, but not her best!

    As an individual read this was an interesting book. As always, Roberts creates lovable well-rounded characters who leap into life off the pages. In comparison with her many other books, I felt the plot design was not the greatest. While I love the witty banter and appealing nature of all the characters, I felt myself waiting quite a while for the core of the story to become apparent.
