This was a very satisfying end to a very enjoyable trilogy. It was also a bit of a scary book as the household ghost started to step up her haunting and actually started possessing one of the main characters. Creepy! Nora Roberts is a very talented writer of romance. She must be because it is not one of my favourite genres but I can always enjoy one of her books. Especially when she adds in a bit of the supernatural. A good read and I am sorry I have finished the series.
This was my favorite in this Trilogy.

At first I thought the trilogy got off to a bit of a slow start for me in Book 1, Blue Dahlia. But for me trilogies seem to hit the ground running and suck me right in, or it's a slower build when the groundwork is being laid and the characters are introduced.

I felt the trilogy built on itself and got better and better with each story, and this was a very fulfilling conclusion. When nearing the end I felt like I knew these characters and didn't want the story

I always hate when trilogies end, and the "In the Garden" trilogy (BLUE DAHLIA, BLACK ROSE, and now RED LILY) is no exception. You get to know the characters so completely, and feel such a connection with them, that they become almost real--and you just want to keep on reading about their lives!

RED LILY is the story of Harper Ashby, oldest son of Rosalind (BLACK ROSE), and Hayley Phillips. Hayley had come to Harper House the previous year, pregnant and alone, to beseech Roz, a distant cousin th

The store and gardening/gardens are very prominent in the trilogy. For those who don't like gardens or gardeni

I really hate to give Nora Roberts low marks on a book, but this one leaves me no choice. Instead of a neat wrap to a compelling trilogy, it was more of a dragged-out ending to a story that just didn’t stretch far enough. In “Blue Dahlia” we met the whole crew starring in this series and got an introduction to the Harper Bride, who haunts Harper House, where most of them live. In “Black Rose” we learned more about the Harper family, and how the Harper Bride fit into it. In this book, the rest of ...more

A very satisfying end to the In the Garden trilogy. Again, as with many of Nora's books, it was Harper, the male lead who I found to be the most interesting character. I liked his quiet, introspective ways, as well as his lean, hot sexiness, of course. And I liked him and Hayley together as a couple. They worked for me.

My one regret about this trilogy is that we didn't get a romance for David, Harper's best friend, Roz's right hand man and housekeeper and the best cook and babysitter alive. *gr

Oh, Nora Roberts of the swoony heroes; you got me with Red Lily .

::: The Plot :::

We first meet Hailey in the first book of the In the Garden Trilogy, Blue Dahlia, when she shows up at Roz's (the heroine of the second book in the series) house -- a distant cousin related by marriage in the way only old Southern families seem to keep track of -- pregnant, alone, and looking for work.

We've known from the first book that Harper, Roz's oldest son and the one who shares her love of gardening and wo

Red Lily by Nora Roberts is book 3 of a series. Each book can be independently read. Young love and new love gives you a special spring to your steps and a glow to your cheeks. Hayley lost herself a little when her father died. A young premed student helped with her loss but unfortunately left her pregnant. She was at a loss, angry at first, but she couldn't have an abortion. When she went to confront the baby's dad, he had met the love of his life and she decided to do all by herself. She sold ...more
I'm totally disappointed with Nora Roberts. I really wanted to like her but I couldn't. I thought there must be a reason for why she is so famous, but this series was not a good one. I only enjoyed the first book in the series, the rest were not very good.

I really hated the ghost story, I really didn't care for it, it was boring. I did enjoy the first book because the ghost was a secondary element in it, but in the 2nd and 3rd book it was mentioned too much.

And about the romance, it never did de

Red Lily was a very romantic book, but kinda freaky. The house ghost decides that she wants to invade Lily's body and Lily decides that Lily must take the ghosts place. The romance goes on between Lilly and Harper and is a wonderful love story with a two year old in the middle. I liked this one just a little bit, not as much as number one, but better than number two. It was nice to finally finish the series. I was disappointed that with all Nora Roberts research, she said that they found the Har ...more

Harper Ashby es un encanto!!! De todos los personajes masculinos de esta trilogía Harper se lleva todos los aplausos!!

El libro final de la trilogía y la historia que faltaba sobre Harper y Hayley; me encanta que el romance entre estos dos personajes es probablemente el que tarda más tiempo en desarrollarse. Desde "Dalia Azul" me encantó Harper, es un personaje centrado, tranquilo, reservado. Es el hijo mayor de Rosalind y la mano trabajadora del Vivero "El Jardin", nunca tuvo la necesidad de sal

I was pretty confused when I first began this audiobook but once again here I am coming into a series at the end . . . The book starts out in the past. A mistress, who apparently has lost all good sense, decides to chase down her infant son whom she was told died. She shows up at her lover's home, mumbling incoherently to the sleazebags wife that she wants her son back. The ticked off wife admits that she has the son and is none too happy about it, let me tell you, but must do her duty and raise ...more

Este tercer libro me gustó más o menos como los otros dos anteriores. La protagonista no me cae tan bien como Roz, la del libro anterior, pero la trama tiene un cariz interesante al centrarse más en el fantasma que habita la casa y en su trágica historia. Me gusta que la autora no haga de ella una víctima total, sino que la vemos con perspectiva, como no todo es blanco y negro.

La relación amorosa una vez más ha ido muy rápido, todo se ha precipitado y no estoy muy de acuerdo con algunos de los h

This was, by far, my favorite book of the trilogy! Of course, this is the book where the storyline comes to a head and all my questions got answered, so I suppose that will always make a book better...but I also enjoyed so much the romance of Hayley and Harper. (I called that way back in book #1, by the way)

The wrap up of the Harper Bride was unexpected and thrilling. I could not put the book (Kindle) down and that is exactly how a good mystery should be!

This trilogy as a whole was a very enjoy

Love this series. Present day setting-three single women brought together by circumstances and how they each find friendship and love. Ghost story intertwined.

Wow!! Grabbed me from the start and held my interest till the end. After I was about 60 pages into the first edition, I remembered that I had read them a couple years ago. I had no trouble reading them again. They were awesome. I could even read them again at a later date.

Roots, blooms and rot: Mother love gone mad; relationships good, bad and absent

The In the Garden series was my first time reading books by Nora Roberts or by the author under any of her other pen names. It was also my first trilogy that I can recall. I don't remember having reading anything in the way of a series of books since my Nancy Drew days.

As I wrote in my first comment about The Blue Dahlia (book #1), this isn't an author or genre that I'd normally choose, but the trilogy was given to me
Well - Roberts did not turn me...I still don't like Hayley. Book three of trilogies always lets me down. But, I still gave it three stars because the other characters were still interesting enough to me to keep me reading until the end even though I knew how things would work out with Haley and Harper.

Red Lily should have been a final ending to what was a compelling and moving trilogy. But what the reader got instead was a very over-drawn and labored ending to a story that didn't really exist
Jacob Proffitt
My least favorite of the trilogy, but it's not a bad book, I don't think. Since Hayley has been my favorite of the three women of In the Garden, I'm sad I didn't like her book better. There's a lot to like with a perky, optimistic girl facing difficulty with a smile and willingness to dig into the hard work to get where she wants to be.

Unfortunately, there were two large facets of the novel that really grated on me. First, and unsurprising if you've read my reviews of the other two, is Amelia Co

True confession: I do enjoy Nora Roberts' romances. Though I feel morally obligated to rate them low because of the portrayal as good of things that I, as a Biblically-oriented Christian, believe to be wrong (such as crude and/or blasphemous language, graphic fornication, occasionally homosexuality as in this trilogy), there are 2 things I think she does well that I appreciate (and seem to keep coming back for, despite the other stuff).
First, she does a great of handling female beauty and self-i

Hayley Phillips had no place to go to safely raise her newborn Lily, so she came to Memphis' legendary Harper House hoping to obtain work from her distant relative forty-something Roz Harper at the attached In the Garden nursery (see BLUE DAHLIA). She has found much more as she becomes friends with her curmudgeon host, Stella and others who shower her and Lily with love. However over time, Hayley realizes she also loves Roz's son Harper, but fears revealing her deep feelings because she worries ...more
An overall satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, although I didn't care for it as much as I had for Black Rose. I did like how the Bride storyline was wrapped up, although it took some time to get there, but I was slightly underwhelmed by the main romance. I would also have liked more hints of what is to come after the end of the book, especially for the other couples.

Also, while the author loves male protagonists with a strong tendency to ignore their partner's wishes/boundaries "for their own

I'm not a flower/garden person so I read over these references. But even with that annoyance, I loved this series! It was great to reconnect with Stella and Roz and even though Hayley was the "star" of this installment, they both played a prominent role. The biggest star was the vengeful ghost Amelia. The team (Stella, Mitch, Roz, Logan, Hayley and Harper) spent a good portion of their time investigating Amelia and trying to find a way to get rid of her. Amelia popped up whenever Hayley got emot ...more

The third and final part in the In the Garden series.
Haleys found her place in life, for her and her daughter, here at Harper House, and although shes found Harper likable, she wasnt expecting the explosive feelings that blooms between them. And the Harper Bride is not happy, at all.
Harper knew there was something between him and Haley since the beginning, but he never thought it would be love. Now that they have to fight the Harper Bride for their happiness theyll need the help of all the fami
I'd forgotten how much Hailey whines in this book after listening to it again, but still it gets 5 stars. It's a great trilogy, the end's pretty exciting, and I'll probably listen to it again someday. I listened to this particular one because I just received the mp3 through bookswap. The reader could have done a better time differentiating the characters; most female readers have more of a problem with the men, which is understandable. Luckily there weren't that many characters to deal with and ...more

Definitely my favorite in the series. When Harper met Hayley in Blue Dahlia, she was young and pregnant. But you could tell even in the first book that he had a crush on her. I could not wait to get through the first two books to finally see how they were going to get together and how the "Harper Ghost" was going to play into their relationship.

Great love story. Great story period. This series will be one of my favorites for years to come.

3.5 *

A good ending to the In The Garden trilogy. The tension was kept up well throughout the story, and the flashbacks into the life of the Harper ghost were excellent.
I wasn't too enthralled by the romance of the two characters, but liked them enough to keep reading.
The big reveal at the end of what actually happened to the ghost was worth waiting for- very different and more macabre than I was expecting!
A good and enjoyable read.

This is the third book of In the Garden trilogy.It takes off with H/h romance growing stronger and Amelia the ghost getting a lot stronger and extremly dangerous as she has periods when she takes over Haleys body-they are still doing their best to find out who she is and where she lived and how she died along with some murderous assauts by Amelia on the household...
