The stalker. Really. Please. There is one and he is creepy.
This book should come with a warning! The book ends in a situation where the main woman is attacked by a violent, psychotic, narcissistic stalker.
While I enjoyed the beginning of the story and loved the main and side characters I wish someone had warned me about the main story line. The summary for the book sounded sweet and endearing so I thought I'd give it a try. But, halfway through it took a turn for the worse. One of the characters, who you could tell was going to be an annoying headache, turned out to be a narcissistic stalker. This turned me off the book in a huge way. The character/ scenario was unfortunately too believable seeing as how the character in question was shockingly like real people that many women have to deal with on a daily basis. I'll admit that my view point might be a little skewed after past personal experiences and hearing about the experiences of many of my close friends, however it was disturbing to have my nice light charming romance novel degrade so quickly into a horror and terrifying story. The ending was happy, but only because of the interference of a friendly neighborhood ghost. If there has been some warning I would not be so violently against this book, but coming as it did out of the blue really disturbed me up.
This romance turned horror nightmare kept me listening for many hours after I normally would have taken a break to go to bed because I knew I could not stop before the ending otherwise I would have nightmares. While I like staying up because I was too engrossed in a book to put it down, feeling forced to do so was a different matter. Like I said I loved the main character and how the guy took on the kids and how they became a family the interactions between the woman and the man, the kids and the guy etc really made me smile. Nora Roberts also has a gift for writing about different careers and situations in a way that makes them absolutely fascinating. She made me want to learn more about architecture and the buildings I live and work in because of the main character. I just wish the story had remained that way. Or, had a hint or a warning of what was to come. Probably wouldn't sell quite as well but it would help women who have been in a similar situations (and let's be honest what woman hasn't been in a situation where the guy thinks she's his property and won't take NO for an answer?) not stay up an extra night terrified of falling asleep or of going out to work in the morning. sorry for the TMI but someone had to write this review.
A very nice read and the Narrator has a great voice.
The flow and the story about family. Must read!
His Sexy Voice and just makes you want to listen.
Love can have a second chance!
Yes, read and you will enjoy a modern love story, with just the right amount of heat and thrills to keep you reading.
There were so many things that made me laugh. There are many scenes reminding me of real life.
The ending was unrealistic, could have been better.
Pretty slow reading, but you could get acclimated.
maybe - cheap night
I would rate as Fair.
Nothing, the book was awful, made worse by the truly horrible narration.
I played this book at 1.5 times the normal speed, because the narrators attempt at sensual was beyond awful. He sounded like he had a very bad fitting set of dentures that moved around in his mouth, making it impossible for him to pronounce anything with an "s".
I like Nora Roberts, but this is such an unbelievable story. A whole family dedicates all their resources to a hotel? It seems very unrealistic. I guess they are rich, and can afford to squander their money as they please
.The only thing missing was the local Newspaper reporter to make up the cast of completely unbelievable and unrealistic players in this story.
I would not recommend this book to anyone but maybe the most hardcore fan of Nora Roberts.

NO but he was easy to listen to.
Recommend and I hope this is a series.

A really nice story. Lovely romance and three husky admirable brothers. MacLeod Andrews has the most sexy easy voice to listen to. Just love his narration. I would buy any Nora Roberts book narrated by MacLeod in preference to a female voice.
I could not even make it through this book. The narration is horrible
His narration was slow and his female and children voices were horrible
I wish I could get a refund for this book
I'm on book 3 of the trilogy and I've enjoyed every bit of it. I listen to them on my drive to and from work. I find myself not minding running errands on the way home or going the back way, just so I can listen to more..the story and characters pull you in, it's a well put together story line and the readers voice is very nice and fits the characters well...the transition is smooth from one book to the next. I don't want it to end! I hope you take a chance on them and enjoy them like I have!
I'm a book loving fool! lol No time to sit down with a good book so I take my books with me! I love audible!
The story was great, it didn't leave lags or any boring parts, I really liked it.
A lot of ppl said that they didn't like this series and that it seems more like she (NR) was pushing the Inn instead of telling the story. I don't agree, yes the pride in the Inn is there but it seems to come from the characters as odd as that sounds. I liked it and can't wait to read the others!
definitely would listen again. I like to listen to hear anything I might have missed.
I think my favorite character was Beckett because he was so very understanding and patient and so very good with the kids and a gentleman.
I liked most of his voices, except the kids at times.
I liked this audio book because I lost my husband when I was very young and Clare aptly reminded me of the feelings I had. It was good to know I was not alone, even if it is fiction.
