Hayley loves her life in Memphis: her precious baby girl, Lily, her job at the In the Garden nursery, and her close friendships with her boss, Roz, and coworker Stella. Hayley isn't about to risk all this on the chance that Roz's son, Harper (his mother's last name), might be interested in her. But when her desire for Harper finally proves to be too strong to resist, Hayley discovers not only that Harper feels the same about her but also that everyone is delighted to see them together. In fact, the only one who seems upset by her new relationship is the "Harper Bride" ghost, who, after nearly a century of unthreatening behavior, is suddenly turning violent. Now if Hayley wants her budding romance to flourish, she must find a way to root the Harper Bride out of all of their lives. The consistently excellent Roberts brings her In the Garden trilogy to a spooky, sexy conclusion with this spellbinding romance that beautifully celebrates the power of love in all its guises.

As for this book I can't say I enjoyed it the second one was the best but to be honest if you find one book in a Nora triloy you like you're doing good. I have read her books from the start so I just didn't pick them up. I find myself getting more disappointed each year it's all so predictable, same characters, same paranormal stories which for me is total boredom I just couldn't be bothered with it and I think this is what is turning me off the books esp series (although the serial murders in the single copy books are starting to mirror each other too). If Nora is going to become a paranormal author I guess she will start to lose some readers cause I'm sure I can't be the only one.
As for this story it's ok hard to believe Hayley arrived at Harper House pregnant and then at the end of the book pregnant again but this is another Nora theme everyone pregnant. She don't do it quite as much as she did before as then the character from the first book would be pregnant in the 2nd trilogy book so by the end everyone was pregnant except the last character. Now there still is at least one character pregnant. I think Nora feels the book has to end happily ever after with a marriage proposal then a pregnancy quite after. So predictable.
Red Lily was the best book out of the three. For me it was much easier to relate to Haley and Harper than the previous characters. Although it was a bit spooky at times with the Harper Bride taking over Haley's body it was a good read.
I always enjoy her books. Can't wait to read another.
Nora Roberts is amazing and I hope she never stops writing
