Format: Paperback
Second in the In the Garden series follows the well trodden Nora Roberts paranormal formula; a trio of strong female leads who manage quite nicely on their own, thank you, but meet their equal in a man whilst avoiding danger. Black Rose is the most interesting of the series, despite the fact that Roz (Rosalind Harper) and Mitch, the geneologist she hires to track the Harper Bride's past, are the oldest members of the group.

Roz is very likeable and cares deeply for her grown up boys, because of this the ghost who haunts her ancestral home has always been kind to her, singing her children to sleep with lullabies. Now that Roz faces falling in love again the Harper Bride becomes angry and vengeful. More of the mystery is revealed in this one but the Harper Bride lacks any real menace so far to qualify for Henry James-ian psychological horror.

The romance is very satisfying - if you can get past two older people enjoying sex, which some friends of mine found hampered their reading enjoyment. The two leads have great chemistry but the repeated references to gardening and the obvious withholding of information for the final installment makes this fairly average. My advice SKIM the gardening sections and hold out for the ghostly encounters.

This is a paranormal trilogy that could have been an excellent single stand alone title in the manner of Three Fates. Fans of Nora Roberts in paranormal mode might want to check out the Key trilogy or her latest due out in September.

Now I think that all women when they reached their forties would want to be like Roz. Dow to earth and gorgeous, and she makes this a very entertaining read as she falls in love with lovable Mitch (second love of her life) and tries to get to the bottom of Amelia's mesrtyrious past. Great read and follow up to Blu Dahlia. Worth it.

Loved this book. It is a fabulous romantic novel with fantastic characters. I think Nora must have really enjoyed this partciular novel as the characters are so good and the dynamics between them so lively. Maybe they will make a film. Highly recommended for summer reading and I can't wait for the third book.

A great 2nd part of the trilogy. Showing the strong character of the leading lady. Her family is her 'all' along with her blooming business. The handsome professor is the next instalment of her growing family.
Only part that I am unsure of is that such a strong woman is seen as older when she hasn't yet reached 50 years old. Not the best thing to read when you are close to that age yourself.
On a whole, a fabulous book and I can't wait to read the next book.

I've been waiting for this for some time now, in fact from the moment I put down it's predecessor Blue Dahlia. I meant to try to make this book last, and read a little at a time, but as usual with Ms Roberts books I totally lost track of all time and finished the book in about 3 days.
Nora Roberts trilogies are a total phenomenon. As usual in her other trilogies I've read with a similar supernatural theme the intensity of the supernatural activity increases, and more of the backstory is revealed. Some you can anticipate, some takes you totally by surprise. Of course it's also great to see a little more of Stella [from Blue Dahlia] and her family, and I'm really looking forward to seeing Hayley and Harper get it together, as well as find out the full story of the Harper Bride. If the intensity increases in the next book Red Lily - it should be a good one! I for one will be putting in my order.

Of the many novels out there on the shelf, and I have bought most of them, four books stand out as superb writing and wonderfully romantic. The first on the list is "Black Rose", second being-"Blue Dahlia" both by Nora Roberts as well as third being-Fire In The Ice by Katlyn Stewart and last but not least-The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd!
Nora Roberts shines brightly in this novel (Black Rose)-I can see why it is a best seller. She weaves a wonderful story for all to read.

I love this author and I have very nearly read all the books not just in this series but all series written.

She is an excellent author, I love the story lines, and I love that everything is in 3's I love a series of books and with a triology you have that without having to many books to read to finish off a series.

Perfect thing to take away with you and read by the pool!
