How 'Bout Them Reads: Red Lily

I'm blowing right through these books, aren't I? This blogs is turning from a blog about where I had interesting topics to a food blog to a book blog. You know me, however the wind blows me. Anyway. I finished my third book in my 2012 Reading Challenge, and the final book in this trilogy.

Red Lily follows Hayley and Harper. (First book, Blue Dahlia, followed Stella and Logan. Second book, Black Rose, followed Roz and Mitch. Just making sure you're keeping up.) Hayley is a very distant cousin through a married line, so barely related to the Harper family but comes to Roz in the first book six months pregnant and needing a job. She doesn't expect a hand-out, but Roz gives you a job and a place to live and a family. At the end of the first book, Hayley has her daughter, whom she names Lily because Harper had brought in red lillies while she was in labor and she loved them. And throughout the course of Hayley's time at the Harper House, both Harper and Hayley have been realizing they have feelings for each other but neither doing anything about it.

Hayley, however, develops another problem as well. She is being possessed by the Harper Bride, and seeing what really happened to her. The others are having the opportunity to actually talk to the Harper Bride, Amelia, through Hayley when she takes over. Through all this, Hayley and Harper begin a relationship, realizing that this is it for them. Hayley fights to keep control of herself despite Amelia pushing her to lose all that she is, and to lose the relationship that they are building. Amelia thoughts begin to take over and Hayley struggles with where she ends and Amelia begins. So now, all of them know it's time to get rid of Amelia once and for all.

------------

And all that being said, I'm a little sad. That's the problem with books through isn't it? You get into the book and start throwing yourself into the story and the characters but at some point it has to end. And I'm usually sad when it does because I have gotten so into the world that was created. So my opinion? I bet you already know my opinion of this book. Just like the other two, I loved it. It was a quick read. It was a fun read. It was just everything a book really should be. I loved stepping into this world and I look forward to one day picking up these books again and going back into it.
