Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish....
Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a first-hand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen. Since he was her first boyfriend when they were kids, Owen has never been far from Avery’s thoughts. But the attraction she’s feeling for him now is far from innocent.
As Avery and Owen cautiously take their relationship to another level, the opening of the inn gives the whole town of BoonsBoro a reason to celebrate. But Owen’s hard work has only begun. Getting Avery to let down her guard is going to take longer than he expected - and so will getting her to realize that her first boyfriend is going to be her last….

“No one writes relationships as well as Ms. Roberts, with the subtleties and quirkiness of the give-and-take of friendship and romance.” (Fresh Fiction)
Absolutely. I enjoyed the story line about the brothers, friends, ghost and the Inn.
I don't think you can ever go wrong with a Nora Roberts book.
yes, interesting story line, good character development, and good performance by the reader - differentiating between the characters
This was a long, drawn-out story without a lot of substance. I'll still probably buy the 3rd in the series, but hope it's better than this one. I didn't think the narrator was bad, but you couldn't tell which voices were speaking most of the time. It was even hard to tell if they were male or female. He didn't have much to work with, so I don't fault him as much as my favorite author, NR.
Reader. Painter. Newspaper columnist. Nurse. Humane Society. Lake life. Walker. Happily remarried - was a widow.
Well written and fast paced continuation of this trilogy. Realistic yet sweetly romantic and characters behave as real people. Liked it. Will continue w the series. Addresses the realities of relationships and the obstacles faced but in an entertaining manner that also adds some depth of insight and help in our world. Recommend. Good for driving.
MacLeod Andrews does such a great job with these characters. His interpretation is perfect. I really don't think this series would work with a female narrator. I love the ghost and I love the characters. The hotel reminds me of one I go to one the Oregon Coast each winter. Nora Roberts gives enough hints about the next book, and wraps up enough about the last one to make it all very satisfying. The subplots are enjoyable in their own right. I look forward to volume 3!
The narrator was just ok, but the story was so sweet and lovely that it didn't detract from my enjoyment. I laughed, I cried and I was glad I used my credit on this story. I am hoping that Hope and Ryder's story is as good as this one.
Norah's characters always jump right out at you and grab your heart. I especially like being able to check in with the characters from the other titles in the series
Anyone but MacLeod Andrews. I almost quit listening to the book. I do not recall being annoyed with him in the previous book in the series but this time, his voice just rubbed me the wrong way. He makes some of the characters, especially Ryder, sound sinister. I am not sure what was different but he really ruined the story for me. I think he was trying to make Ryder sound macho but instead he came off sounding like the bad guy or a serial murderer....yuck and yuck. If Andrews reads the next book I am going to need to think long and hard about purchasing it in audio format.
Mr. Andrews should stick with suspense or mysteries and leave the romance titles to someone else.
Yes I would recommend this book. Love reading Nora's triologies!
I thought the performance was well done. He has a nice soothing voice.
Didn't like this one as much as the first as it didn't have the suspense element in it. Looking forward to the third book.
The follow up story was interesting.
The male narrator was terribly confusing. No difference in the male voices or female voices. I found it hard to follow and hard to finish. You never knew who was speaking when! Story was shallow and boring. Very disappointed.
No, boring book would make boring movie.
Just disappointed. Nora Roberts books can be so good, but also can be so bad. Sometimes I wonder if she has someone else writing for her.
Narrator was terrible spoilt the bearly interesting storyI waited a long time for this book and was disapointed
Change narratorMake the story line stronger
I don't know but the narrator of the first was good
Please think before printing next book as I don't like wasting my hard earned money
