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)
I'm addicted to Audible. May need an intervention!
I love this trilogy! I think the narrator has improved since book 1. If you like Nora Roberts, you will not be disappointed.
It put me in a zone. Good, realistic psychological messages and character dialogue. No major tragedy. Well written, just never drew me in to the story.
Yes. Some of her books are quite good. This wasn't bad, just okay. No big laugh, no big cry, not much mystery...I kept guessing the story plot.
The scene where the main character talks to her boyfriend about her abandonment feelings.
Reinstilled the importancy of the past not getting in the way of the future.
Not much to convince me to listen to the sequel.
I really enjoyed this book. A great Nora Roberts story. Fun to listen to. The characters are interesting, funny and engaging. It has just the right amount of reality and ghost story, which,for me, is fun and intriguing. The narrator did a great job in playing all these different characters and capturing their personalities.
Enough about the characters from the first book, at times I feel the other couples are barely mentioned. Great series.
I listen on my long commute to work.
I really enjoyed book 1 so I listened to book two. I was disappointed that it did not follow the written format for book one in the development of the story. I enjoyed the story and the narration but it was lacking details in the plot line for me to enjoy.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I have not read the print version
Seems like all nora's love stories are similar.
I have a sackful of paperbacks i no longer want to read because I am addicted to audible, narration brings the characters to life.
Still the ghost, I am anxious to learn her story.
I like to read series. Some of my favories are by Nora Roberts and Debbie Macomber. I am a widow and my books help fill in the empty spaces for me. I have 12 grandchildren, who are very active in my life too. I live in the mountains of WV.
The person reading the book.
I just could not buy into the man reading as a woman. It was awful.
Please I hope Nora Roberts searches for a different reader. I love her books, but was so dissappointed.
I had only read one Nora Roberts book before this one. Loved it, so felt encouraged to begin another. After listening to about half of this story, I decided that I would definitely want to hear the other two that followed, so ordered them both. I listened to all three in succession even though each on could stand on its own. However, I enjoyed prolonging the pleasure of following the characters throughout the series. Now, despite recognizing a degree of formulaic style to Nora Roberts' novels, she has such a great imagination and ability to find new plot lines, believable characters and challenges for them, I don't mind her formula for entertaining her fans. I plan to read many more of her books.
If they are reading the series yes.
Predictable. Which I know all love stories are. Just needed some more excitement.
I work in the field of scientific research by day, and I write the rest of the time. My nonfiction historical articles appear in numerous magazines. I am presently working on a contemporary and a paranormal romance.
This is the second of the series of three, which I read out of order. At first, I thought "I already know what happens in Book 3, so this one won't be interesting." I was wrong. As usual, NR does a superb job of characterization, and creates a world I want to visit, people I would love to meet.
In the first book I was turned off by the male narrator, but since this series is mostly from three brothers' point of view, it works. Overall great listen. Highly recommend.
