However, all is not right at Harper House. Amelia, the ghostly presence that has lived in the house since the late 1890s is getting more violent, more unpredictable. She's been taking over Hayley's body, using Hayley in order to get her story across. It's taking a heavy toll on Hayley, along with Roz and Stella and company. This close knit group must find a way to rid Harper House forever of Amelia's ghost, while also providing a fitting ending for a woman who was treated shabbily in life. Can they do it, or is Amelia destined to haunt Harper House forever?
Red Lily is the fabulous conclusion for Nora Roberts latest trilogy. This is a truly creepy novel, more so in my opinion than previous Roberts' trilogies have been. The way Amelia subtly and slyly takes over Hayley's body is spooky to read about, but is counterbalanced nicely by the blooming relationship between Hayley and Harper. Also enjoyable for this reader was catching up with the other tenants of Harper House.
This is by far the best of the three stories, and even if you weren't all that thrilled by Blue Dahlia and Black Rose, as I myself wasn't, I think you'll find Red Lily to be a fast-paced, and action packed romance that definitely shows off Ms. Roberts romance talent once again.
All in all, this is suspenseful and romantic tale that will keep you on the edge with the mystery surrounding Amelia.
Amelia, the Harper Bride escalates her violent tendencies as soon as the love between Haley and Harper becomes evident. Haley, Harper, Roz, Mitch, Stella, and Logan race against time to solve the mystery before something tragic happens.
The final book in the garden series did not disappoint!! I loved the entire series, and it will be a permanent addition to my library.
Nora comes back alive in this book as she describes Hayley's winsomly darling baby daughter, Lily--one cannot help thinking that the author is describing her own adored grandbaby, it seems so real and true! The romance is perhaps a bit less graphic than in past books, but just as pleasing as always, and the dialogue is fresh and "now" and right.
I'm so glad to see Nora back in the groove. I believe that she has settled happily and comfortably into the third stage of a women's life--wife and grandma--and this book positively shimmers with that happiness. I lift a glass of wine to her and this wonderful book.
Hayley Phillips appeared at Harper House in "Blue Dahlia," pregnant and alone in the world. She's a distant cousin by marriage of Roz Harper, the mistress of Harper House, and the owner of the gardening center she started. Even six months pregnant, Hayley caught the eye of Harper Ashby, Roz's eldest son who lives in a guest house on the property and works with grafting and other technical aspects of running the garden center. Hayley's daughter Lily was born in the second book, and loves Harper like she would a daddy, so Hayley is fearful if she follows her feelings for Harper that everything will get messed up and she'll have to leave her wonderful new home. When she finally acts on her feelings and finds that Harper reciprocates, there isn't much more to be said. So, instead of having their budding relationship develop, there are too many scenes where Hayley discusses her feelings with Roz, while going on and on about how odd it is to discuss her love life with her lover's mother.
Meanwhile, the Harper Bride is becoming a lot more than a benign ghost who sings to children and breaks the occasional dish.Read more ›

This entire trilogy is a pleasure to read, so giving this one less star than the first two is only because, by now, the romance is pretty predictable. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Monica Rouse
