About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Sella Rothchild thinks that she has lost everything when her husband dies and leaves her a widow with two small boys to raise. What she needs is a change. A change comes with the chance of moving back to southern Tennessee in order to manage a plant nursery. She is going to work for Roz Harper and help her organize her already successful operation. One catch, she must live at Harper House, a wonderful old plantation manor that just so happens to have it's very own resident ghost. Oh, and one member of the staff does not want to be organized. This of course would Logan Kiteridge. Could a man be more madding???
It's not long before Stella is butting heads with garden designer Logan Kitridge and the sparks that fly from the first meeting only get brighter with each meeting there after. Soon Stella is florishing in her new situation, and she is even allowing her heart to open again to a new man, but someone on the plantation is not happy about it. Does Logan and Stella have half a chance at finding happiness that they both want, or will someone ruin their relationship before it even gets off the ground?
This was a fast-paced read that had this reader glued to the pages until the very end. Stella and Logan are a great couple, and the sparks they set off each other are fun to read about. As per normal when reading a Nora Robert book you will find both laughter and tears which is probably why she is a NY Times Bestselling author. I highly recommend this read and I look forward to the next in the series.

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.
The basic story is about widowed mother of two, Stella Rothchild. Stella is a nut about organization. She then falls for Logan Kitridge, the scatterbrained landscaper. In the story you also meet Roz and Hayley, heroines of the next two books in the trilogy, and the Harper Bride, resident ghost.
I'm hoping the other books will be more interesting, as I found Roz and Hayley to both be more fascinating than Stella. Stella was kind of boring, unfortunately. Also, I think too much of the story focused on other people and on the ghost, not enough on Logan and Stella. Their relationship seemed rather rushed and almost unrealistic.
Also, the gardening aspect was just plain boring. Maybe it's because I have no interest in gardening myself... but one of the things I always liked about Nora Roberts was the interesting jobs her characters had (treasure hunters, stage magicians, talk show hosts, writers, etc). Gardening isn't quite as fun to read about as a couple who fall in love while searching the ocean for buried treasure.
To be fair, Nora Roberts at mediocre is still YARDS better than most other writers at their best. I finished the book in a matter of hours and while it was not as good as some of her other stuff, it was still interesting enough to keep me reading. If I get bored with a book, I'll toss it aside and not bother finishing it. So, she gets 3 stars from me and I will be spending the money to read the other two books in the series. :)
