As truck drivers my husband and i listen as we drive. This entire series is fantastic. The characters are amusing, touching, and truly unforgettable. Normally, once I hear a book, it takes a while before I am ready to listen to it again. This series however, I find myself re-listening the next day while he's driving instead of going to sleep as I should, and laughing out loud again, even though I just listened to it the night before.
Boonsboro, the small town in Maryland has both male and female characters who are strong successful individuals, yet vulnerable in their own ways. Nora Roberts always entertains, but this series may become my all time favorite of hers (which in the past was the In Death series she writes under JD Robb). Don't miss the fun nor the ghost in Inn Boonsboro as the Montgomery boys meet their individual matches, in women, dogs, and kids.
And as Hope says in the final book of this series, what women wouldn't want to grow up to be Justine Montgomery, the mother and driving force of the Montgomery clan.
The engagement with the boys
I do not think so.
Same as "Memorable Moments"
A little predictable. And was different for Nora Roberts. I liked it and was left with wanting to listen to the other two books. Which I will do soon.
Yes, Story kept you wanting to listen for the end.
What was Lizzy going to do nest?
none, love the narrator,
I am not 1 to see a movie after reading or listening to a book. Movie always makes me upset. Never like the book.. Book is always better.
It's definitely a 4-5 ranking of keeping my attention to the story and the variety of characters.
Definitely the steamy love-making and the ghost on the third floor of the Inn.
Restoring an antique inn isn't the only thing needed restoring. A certain spirit helps bring old friends together in a steamy romance.
Not fast pasted. But the love stories were really great. I listened to all three books in a row.
I really liked all three and the characters are all really likeable.
I have loved Nora Roberts for a number of years now and this book is completely up to her standards. Her trilogies stay in mind and keep me wondering about the characters even when I am not reading them. This book is no different. I can't wait until I get her next book in this series so I can see what happens next. I particularly love that the book takes place in Boonsboro, a place I have visited and in buildings that really exist.
Someone else's voice. I couldn't get through the story because of the guy's voice.
Couldn't make it past the first few pages
Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.
A predictable story with a slight leaning into the super natural with a female ghost that might or might not influence two potential lovers. Roberts writes this book with a light hand and little imagination, but as always, her competent craftsmanship is appreciated.

NEVER have I been the reader of bodice rippers, Avoided them like hornets nests. My life has always been rich enough in the real thing to even consider, want, enjoy anything even slightly resembling . . . . .
Well, this Nora Roberts is an outrageously capable writer - who knew?!, She knows how to weave a story that holds your interest as it encompasses ALL the emotional experiences of real life: the visual, the scents, the absolutely subtle. Never have I so often giggled, laughed out loud, cried deep in my chest for poignant, or fear, or just plain joy as with this book. Whew, she really knows how to write.
This woman writer is absolutely rich in the language of the heart.
So, the book took me totally by surprise. Even just her writing took me by surprise. Sheesh!
The story, well, you had to have been there.,.it sucked me in like a soft warm beginnings of a tornado, that part before you realize it might become dangerous, suck you in and smash you to pieces. The story is just amazing,
I am pretty sure this Nora Roberts is a woman but she understands men way better than I ever or any other woman I know has. Her men are so. . . . . real. Never just place holders.
I may not be the best person to review this book.
Who knows what the rest of her books are like.
Could be a fluke.
Can hardly wait to find out.
Oh, and did I mention her narrator? Perfect!
The exceptional plot and characters of "Witness," my first Nora Roberts novel, inspired me to buy this entire trilogy. I wish I had not wasted the second two credits. Soft, squishy, predictable. A white, upper-middle-class family grows up in a small eastern seaboard town; I could not relate to any of them. I admittedly would have better tolerated a similar story on the left coast.
