Description

Against the backdrop of a house steeped in history and a thriving new gardening business, three women unearth the memories of the past in the first novel in #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts’ In the Garden Trilogy.

A Harper has always lived at Harper House, the centuries-old mansion just outside of Memphis. And for as long as anyone alive remembers, the ghostly Harper Bride has walked the halls, singing lullabies at night…

Trying to escape the ghosts of the past, young widow Stella Rothchild, along with her two energetic little boys, has moved back to her roots in southern Tennessee. She isn’t intimidated by Harper House - nor by its mistress. Despite a reputation for being difficult, Roz Harper has been nothing but kind to Stella, offering her a comfortable place to live and a challenging new job as manager of the flourishing In the Garden nursery.

As Stella settles comfortably into her new life, she finds a nurturing friendship with Roz and expectant mother Hayley and a fierce attraction to ruggedly handsome landscaper Logan Kitridge. He’s difficult but honest, brash but considerate - and undeniably sexy. And for a sensible woman like Stella, he may be just what she needs...

mmmm...not a big Susie Breck fan

I love Nora Roberts. she's my all time favorite author! this story was, of course, perfect. I love how Nora writes for women who are yearning to discover themselves. I can't wait to finish this trilogy.

Susie Breck on the other hand.... not a fan. she did a great job, but her voice is so generic and almost fake. I enjoy narrators that have a flow and read the book like they are telling a story about something that happened with them that day. Brecks reads a book, and it is almost annoying. her accents are annoying to listen to sometimes especially when it came to her characterization of male characters and young characters.

Wonderful!

Would you consider the audio edition of Blue Dahlia to be better than the print version?

I've never read the printed version of Blue Dahlia. I did however love the audio version!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Luke and the children. Luke is charming and has his own style.

What about Susie Breck’s performance did you like?

She was fabulous! I thought she did a brilliant job with the different characters voices.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book every chance I got for 2 days. Its Halloween and this book was a wonderful way to get into the spirit!

Any additional comments?

Loved it! I can't wait to listen to the next ones in the series. Usually Nora Roberts can be a little tame in the sex scenes but this book has some detail but not enough to be offensive. Wonderful!

Story great, reader has never been south

Would you listen to Blue Dahlia again? Why?

No. The narrator was simply awful, with her totally inaccurate and annoying southern accents. Ugh!

What didn’t you like about Susie Breck’s performance?

As above, her accents are awful and quite distracting.

entertaining but doesn't captivate

Any additional comments?

The male character is easily seduced with minimal encouragement and the love is found in an astoundingly quick time. I like the ghost in the story. Perhaps the most complicated character in the book. :)

Great Story, Excellent Narrator

This series is one of my favorites from Nora Roberts, and Susie Breck makes listening a major treat! Within the range of western Tennessee accents, she gives each character a distinctly different voice, and even the laughs and giggles stay true to the age and voice of the characters.

I want to grow a garden

It grips you from the get go and gets you into the lives of the characters.

The Harper bride is a bit scary but you do get to feel for her and want to assist the characters to find her past!

good read, good listen - always the best.

Thank you Nora!

Hate the Narrator

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A different narrator, she speaks so fast that you cannot absorb what is being said.

What didn’t you like about Susie Breck’s performance?

Everything!!!!!!!!

Very Enjoyable!

Loved loved loved this audiobook - the story, the characters, the narration, all of it. The following two in the series are just as good, and I couldn't wait to get to them. A must!
