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)
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.
It is a nice way to wrap the series - fills in enough holes without trying to tie up every loose end that there is.
The scene when the old boyfriend shows up..
The ability to give each character a different voice - male and female alike..
Hmmm... that is a hard one. I would prefer to take out the whole family rather than one specific character..
yes, its a good story, and romantic
when Owen realizes he loves her.
the first real kiss
Tell us about yourself!
Yes I would because I absolutely loved the first one in the trilogy, and although this one was as good it still was very enjoyable. I just prefer the other two brothers. But MacLeod Andrew's voice made it perfect as always.
When she finally realises and gives in to her feelings and allows him to be part of her life.
Yes I have and he delivers every time. I think he has an incredible voice and I love the way he narrates. I think he should do more Romances because a good mans voice makes them a lot more enjoyable.
I think it would be Beckett or Ryder, but probably Beckett because he's just perfect.
I think everyone will enjoy it.
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
This was my first romance novel, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I liked the characters and the small town yet contemporary setting for the story. All of the characters were very likeable, and the romance between Owen and Avery was very flirty, well-developed and believable. The love scenes were described in a very classy and somewhat symbolic way, yet it was easy to visualize and imagine their passion. I would have liked a more interesting background story, but even still I found myself anxious to listen as often as I could to this audio book. The narrator was very good, and I thought he had a perfect voice for Owen and his brothers. I will probably wait a few years, but I will listen to this story again.
Ranks in the top 10
Ryder is my favorite but I really enjoyed all the characters
The stalker story line was a little extra creepy. In real life I would hope they would have taken the threat more seriously.
Chosen a different adversary than the stalker
Sure. There are two more main women that need mates.
I say this is your basic Nora Roberts book because you know within the first couple of chapters who the main male and female love interest will be and the book just develops the relationship with various ups and downs. I'll read the next two in the series and I'm sure more Nora Roberts after that because I enjoy a happy ending.
I have already listened to this book twice!
I fell in love with the characters in the first book, and this book made me feel like I was part of the BoonsBoro family. I want to stay in The Inn!
I loved the descriptions of the town and the shops. I feel like I have been to BoonsBoro
The discussions between the three brothers is very easy to relate to if you have siblings of your own. The friendships between the girls is also something I experience in my own life. Justine's knowledge of her own boys makes me giggle every time she shocks her boys with a comment they had no idea she knew about.
Loved this entire series, not suspenseful as some of her other work, but entertaining none the less. The third in the series is even better. I enjoyed the narrator also.
