Predictable, Honest, and Mirthful
The remainder of the trilogy creates the same feel-good mood.
I like it when Lizzie lock the doors on them both, forcing them to see each other for who they really are to one another.
There is no running away from love, it perseveres.
If you want a pleasant escape from the harsh realities, then take a trip to Inn Boonsboro in Maryland.
I wasn't sure I wanted to read all three, but each one was better than the last and the story of Hope and Ryder was fantastic. I figured it was going to be a predictable story and but it was funny with a few twists that keep you laughing and entertained. MacLeod Andrews must have gotten the message at how bad he was in the first Book. He was so much better in this one and didn't make the kids sound so awful. I'm very glad I went ahead and purchased this triology. Great Job Nora Roberts. Some of her books are too empty, but not these.
yes, loved the story and the characters
None that I know of
I have listened to 2 other books by MacLeod Andrews, he's pretty good
yes, didn't want to stop
No, not really. Nora Roberts follows a very predictable format. All her series have the same archetypal woman: 1. the defensive ex-victim who's not going to let herself be hurt again, 2. the fragile current victim who has not yet found the courage to enter into group one, and 3. The freedom loving regular girl who's open to love, but isn't quite ready when it comes. There are a few others but they're all pretty similar with the men falling into similar archetypes as well. I wouldn't change this predictability because for some reason I seem to like it. I keep going back for more. I read everything Ms. Roberts writes and I don't see myself stopping.
I love the ghost, Lizzy. She's got a sense of humor and has a great uniqueness to her.
I just don't like a man reading the thoughts of women. This is a very personal preference and others might not care about this one way or another, but it annoys me. Also this particular reader's voice didn't deviate too much between the characters and therefore at times it was hard to tell which character was speaking. This is especially true if the male characters.
Yes. Robert's stories are engaging for the most part and comforting in their sameness. For me the humor she writes into her plots them is the most worthwhile part of listening to her novels.
I so enjoy Audible...helps me get my to-do list accomplished.
Yes...such a wonderful book...loved the characters, the family, the men, the women, all of it.
The best by far! I wish he did more of Nora's books. He is so perfect for the all the characters.
Why can't there be a book 4!!!!
I love how interwoven all the characters are. They feel really real.
Been a while, so I don't remember her name, but the gal that owns the pizza shop...because she is casual, and quirky, and strong.
The narrators voice is extremely sexy. Does men and women with no trouble. Will be looking for more work by him. Wish he did more Nora Roberts.
Read the book instead of listening.
I am a huge Nora Roberts fan but found this trilogy to be mostly an advertisement for the inn she and her husband have restored. The descriptions of the rooms in the inn are lavish; the story is a bit weak.
Nevertheless, having met the characters in the first two books, I was looking forward to the third. I was sorry that I had chosen to purchase the audio book instead of the book itself, as I often found myself wincing at the reader's inflections. I got the sense that he didn't really LIKE the secondary characters, as they come across as being one-dimensional and often silly.
Yes and I did
Ryder and Dumbass
An excellent series, wish Nora had more like this one. Down to earth with interesting characters. Love Ryder and Hope and the ghost!
Tell us about yourself!
How Hope finally breaks Ryder's shield of toughness. I love the way MacLeod Andrews delivers Ryder. He does all three brothers so well and mimics their personality to a T.
Becket is always my favourite because he's just fantastic but Ryder is rough and sexy and I like him too because under it all, he has a soft heart.
Where Ryder gets a bit embarrassed but I don't want to spoil it.
Yes it was, they all were.
I love the trilogy because they're lovely romantic stories and because MacLeod Andrews did an awesome job of delivering.
