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….

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.
true love lasts
I don't know
I really enjoyed his performance. He really made the story come alive.
When Avery's father soothed her concerning her mothers unexpected visit.
It was my first my Audible book and I really enjoyed it. Makes the car ride much more enjoyable.
I found that I drifted off from the story occasionally as it moved a little slow. It didn't seem like I missed much in doing so though. The story was pleasant and sort of cute with the ghost.
It was all about acceptance and support toward everyone in the village.....like one big family.
It was funny when Owen finds his mother with Willy B.
OK, here's the thing about this trilogy. the books are not horrible, but Nora Roberts spends soooo much time focusing on details of what ppl are doing (esp at the Inn itself) and so less time developing the romance itself. The writing is still good, but the satisfaction from the romance not as good. I also thought book one was better (i fell asleep a few times with this one)
I listened for approx 10 hours to a 'book' that had no story. The book droned on and on describing decor, shoes, and other inane details. Hard to finish.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
