Now before I go any farther I want to throw it out there that I highly recommend the full series. I thought this was the weakest in the series, however, as it spent a lot of time setting up the basis for the remaining books so I have a few things I’d like to mention.
In the beginning Roberts had me tearing up reading about Stella’s first husband and the circumstances that brought them back “home”. I was fascinated by the gardening tips and I was ready to go plant everything I could get my hands on by the end of it. My only problem with the story was that I didn’t find myself completely intrigued by the romance. The romantic story followed a fairly standard recipe though I loved the way Logan interacted with the boys. That aside, the Harper Bride was just enough creepy without giving me nightmares at night. I thought this was a very solid book and I would certainly recommend it.
Rating: 4 stars!
Who should read it? Romance fans looking for something with a little more background and side-story.
