I couldn’t believe it. How had I not read these books years ago? Three romances set around a thriving garden nursery. Romance! Garden Nursery! Romance! Gardening!
There’s a little bit of mystery, too, and a ghost! A little something for everyone.
In the first book, three strong women come together. While each book focuses on one romantic couple, we get to enjoy all of the characters throughout the series. The gardens, the grand old southern mansion, and the ghost are also in all three books.
I listened to the series on Audible. Narrator Susie Breck does an amazing job. All of her voices are good and distinct, but her portrayal of Rosalind Harper is exceptional. She has the sexy, strong-willed, southern grande dame down to an art.
There are a lot of loveable characters in the series. It does get a little scary at times, and the garden chat is wonderful but not overwhelming.
I almost missed out. Don’t do what I did. If you are a gardener, if you like romance or a little bit of mystery, if you just like books set in the south, don't wait. Read, listen, enjoy.
Fly too close to the sun and you’ll get burned. Zechariah knows that only too well. But he hadn’t flown to the sun. She had come to him. And he's absorbing her rays, wanting, needing, desperately reaching for more.
But the sun can’t shine in a cave, which is where he belongs.
Zechariah’s appearance has caused him nothing but grief all his life. Even his mother rejected him. How could someone as beautiful as Augusta Mae Anderson want to even be in the same room with him? Yet he's drawn to her – mind, body, heart.
Augusta Mae has never met anyone like Zechariah Baroudi. Brilliant himself, he appreciates her hard work and her intellect, respects her. He accepts her for who she really is and seems to understand her without even trying. He doesn’t see her as a shallow, stupid blonde like everyone else does. And he has the most beautiful eyes…
Too bad that his bodyguards – aka, his obnoxious brothers – won’t leave them alone. Too bad that her own brother won't, either. Too bad that they're fighting with everyone they love just because they're together.
Too bad Zechariah doesn’t want this for either of them.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth, breadth, and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints – I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! – and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
