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)
Book not as good as first one. But I am finishing listening to trilogy anyhow. 3rd book a little bit better. Could have done without Ghost.
The book lacks tension, aside from the ghost which is not mentioned in the blurb. I avoid ghost books and I enjoy romance novels that have something that drives the plot. This tells the slow boring story of old friends who start dating and run into zero bumps or hurdles. Multiply this by the incredibly slow narration, and you've got for one boring book. In fact, I fell asleep twice while listening to this book.
I'm really disappointed because I usually really like Nora Roberts, and in theory, I enjoyed the characters, but that's not enough to make me ever listen to this story again.
This book had potential, but it was a slow sappy story. Towards the end of the book, new characters were brought into the story, which made me think it was going to get better... nope, the new characters that gave the book some credibility, left the reader wondering what the hell happened. Wish I could get my credit back😡
For the most of the book, I enjoyed. Right up until the relationship became physically violent. I don't care what the circumstances are. Verbal and physical abuse aren't sexy. I'm sure if I kept listening, they would have made up and everything would have been right as rain, but that's disgustingly similar to honeymoon period following an altercation of an actual abusive relationship. I'm angry that this is what I was exposed to in the couple I am clearly supposed to be rooting for. No thanks. I think I'll be taking a break from Roberts for awhile.
I loved this book and I think they will live happily ever after. I recommend this series and all of her other books that are written as trilogies. She is the best there is at this form of romance book
Oh of course. I love Nora Roberts, and for sure with the amount of books that woman pumps out she will have a few hits and misses. This was certainly a miss for me. Macleod didn't really add anything special to the story for me however I didn't hate the voice.
I think for me it was just boring. Nothing truly exciting happened and I just couldn't make myself fall in love with the characters. Beckett and Clare from the first book remained my favourite and I fell in love with Avery's father but our two main characters put me off a bit. I think perhaps I couldn't relate to them at all.
I've listened to the whole series of Inn Boonsburo now and his first book was the best of the series, this one was alright. He kept up the voices and I knew who was talking at all times. He did a reasonable job.
Enjoyed the way the story teller made the characters come to life. The image of the inn come alive. A place I would love to spend time at. Really enjoyed spending a few evening at the Inn.
