The funeral of her husband was difficult to go through, and now Stella finds herself wondering if she will ever find love or happiness again.

Stella is overjoyed when she meets Logan Kitridge, and it isn’t long before sparks start to fly. Stella is finally beginning to feel like love may be in the cards for her again. But not everyone is happy about the budding romance between Logan and Stella.

The new couple may face unexpected obstacles when it comes to their romance. A mysterious woman is lurking out there called the Harper Bride. This woman has become something that is not hardly human. After all these years, blind grief and surging rage have trapped her spirit in a place that it isn’t supposed to be.

But can someone whose physical body died long ago really come between Stella and Logan, two red-blooded human beings that are very much alive? Surely a ghost cannot interfere with the affairs of the living, right? You’re going to have to pick up the dynamic and mysterious first novel in the In The Garden series by author Nora Roberts to find out!

Black Rose is the exciting sequel by Nora Roberts and the second installment of her intriguing Garden trilogy. Harper House has always been so-named because a Harper has always lived there. This old mansion sits on the skirts of Memphis, Tennessee, and the house is literally centuries old.

Generations have come through these doors and raised their children here. However, there are also whispers that the house is home to more than just the living members of the Harper family through the years. Anyone that lives near that area can tell you that the Harper Bride is said to walk through the halls at night, singing lullabies. But is that really true, or just a legend that people started to believe was true?

Rosalind Harper is the main character in this story. She is 47 years of age, and has lived and seen enough to fill up a lifetime. She’s no stranger to hardship, but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Such is the case with Roz, who has become strong enough over the years to take just about anything that life throws at her and weather anything that comes her way.

Part of that is the fact that Roz is a widow. She has three sons that are now grown and has gotten through a second marriage and made it out alive. Ever resourceful, Rosalind Harper forged a nursery on her own, building it from the ground up.

She ended up naming the business “In the Garden”. Now it is so much more to her as years have passed. In the Garden is more than just her business, it’s symbolic to Rosalind of not only hope but independence too. She runs the business with two women that keep it thriving. With the help of Stella and Hayley, the nursery is in good hands.

They all have families to support as well; Stella is newly married, and Hayley just recently became a mother. Rosalind thinks that the store is doing well, and everything seems to be going fine. But recently, the nursery that they all love and depend on for their income has come under attack.

Rosalind knows that she’s going to need help to fight this battle. She may find it in an unusual place: Dr. Mitchell Carnegie, a genealogist. She originally hired him to look into her ancestral background, but Roz is surprised to find that she is growing more interested in Mitchell by the day. The feeling is mutual, as the doctor is falling for this intriguing woman too.

The pair are engaged in a race to find out the identity of the mysterious Harper Bride. Roz wants to help her find peace– but is it a task that is beyond her? Will she find love with the genealogist? Read Black Rose to find out and check out Red Lily, the last of the In The Garden series by Nora Roberts.
