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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
