Red Lily by Nora Roberts

Title: Red Lily

Author: Nora Roberts

Genre: Romance

Summary: The conclusion to the In the Garden Trilogy. The ghost of the plantation owner's mistress is finally put to rest as the youngest of the three women finds love.

The Take-Away: As long as the plot isn't trite, the characters shine. There is a reason for Ms Roberts to have over 150 titles in print. Time and again she creates fantastic characters. The sparks flying between Hayley and Harper are no exception. I especially enjoyed that as a woman in her twenties, Hayley had a good command of today's slang. It sounded natural coming out of her mouth, a feat not easily accomplished.

Recommendation: Pick up the others first, then read this one.
