Through the years, In the Garden has become more than just a thriving business - it is a symbol of hope and independence to Roz, and to the two women she shares it with. Newlywed Stella and new mother Hayley are the sisters of her heart, and together, the three of them are the future of In the Garden.
But now that future is under attack, and Roz knows they can't fight this battle alone. Hired to investigate Roz's Harper ancestors, Dr. Mitchell Carnegie finds himself just as intrigued with Roz herself. And as they begin to unravel the puzzle of the Harper Bride's identity, Roz is shocked to find herself falling for the fascinating genealogist.
Now it is a desperate race to discover the truth before the unpredictable apparition lashes out at the one woman who can help her rest in peace.

Ghost on the rampage amidst the fragrant flora
These books just get better and better. I immediately dug into Black Rose upon the completion of Nora Roberts' 1st in this series, Blue Dahlia. Black Rose focuses on Roz Harper, the matriarch of the Harper extended family and owner/gardener extraordinaire of In The Garden Nursery - a business about which I might have fantasized had I known it might ever exist. A sprawling garden shop, offering all aspects of floral cultivation on the ancestral homestead (besides the huge and elegant home and warm, cozy cottage where her grown son Harper lives).
Didn't really get enough about Roz in the first book, so I was delighted the second locked in on her trials, tribulations and triumphs - A very feisty, generous and caring women with a green thumb that knows no bounds.
A gardener's delight, an inspiration for those who have never gotten dirt under their nails, a lovely glimpse into Southern culture and a gripping mystery, with a surprising amount of humor thrown in.
A very fun romp of a listen indeed.

Nora Roberts is the best
Rosalind is the type of woman you seldom if ever get to meet. Who takes in 2 strangers based on nothing but a gut feeling!
What confidence she has. She's had it hard but her life is now falling into place and she deserves to be happy.
The Harper bride almost keeps you up and makes you thankful she isn't with you!
Nora again - your research and insite you offer make these a have to read not a want to read!
