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)
Love Nora Roberts. Her books are always a joy to read whether it be a sunny day at the beach or pool or cuddled up by the fire on a chilly night. Each book, though different, all have that dream quality with mystery, suspense, romance and happy endings. Makes you want to be that special character. Thank you to Nora Roberts and her amazing imagination coupled with the ability to put her thoughts into words.
All of her Trilogy's are enjoyable.
Where is Book 3???
I am a readaholic! I will read anything - cereal boxes, etc. if there is nothing available. I have a long drive to work and back and listen to books every day.
As always, Nora Roberts brings her characters to life. The people in this story are real and imperfect, just like me. I thoroughly enjoy her work.
Yes, Enjoy the story and characters
The small town and family ties.
How the brothers help each other and kid with each other.
Another great book by Nora Roberts
I am a audiobook NUT !!! I Can't Get Enough Romance Books!!!
YES this great i have been waiting for this book and it was worth it big time one more to go i can wait for the last book. i know it will be great aswell !!!!!!!
the most memorable moments was when Avery pulled out the ring Owen gave her when she was five she kept it all those years!
My Favorite is Rider that is why i cant wait till the last book!
BoonsBoro with the most established Family in town The Montgomery's
I love the overall story line. This series has been so amazing. I can't wait for the third one to come out. I really enjoyed the first book but I think I like this one a little more, just because of the history between Owen and Avery.
I could not stop laughing when Owen walked in on his mom and Avery's Dad in her kitchen making out.
Again, the part when Owen walked in on his mom and Willy B was hilarious!
The title is perfect just the way it is.
This series has easily become one of my favorite of all times and I cannot wait for the third book!!!
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!
"Opening the Inn"
As the Inn is prepared to open, Owen falls for Avery. Personally, I found Avery to be a bit of a "nippy sweetie" as we say; and I would have liked Owen to fall for someone else! Ha! However, the story continues, leaving way for the final segment and brother to find a mate.
As it's the first I've listened to it can only be prime.
Avery, she is such a complex character.
Yes, but I become engrossed in many books and want to keep going.
Whilst I enjoyed the book and the reading I feel that a female voice, reading the women's parts, would improve the audio. A man is limited in how many different female voices he can produce.
"Great ending to the trilogy"
The way the story brings together the characters from the previous 2 books and the third girl gets the third Montgomery brother
Ryder Montgomery, as he is a grumpy guy with 2 brothers who have both got the girl but he cannot see what's happening to him.
He has a great voice for audio books and made the stories very easy to listen to.
Both, the characters draw you in the their lives and there are some emotional chapters and some comic conversations.
Nora Roberts is a master at stories like this.
A really relaxing heart melting love story. Enjoy with the other books in the trilogy
"Another amazing audible journey"
Another brilliant story from Nora Roberts and superbly narrated by Macleod Andrews - he is fast becoming my favourite narrator of all time. Where most people listen to music on their commute to work - I have listened to Owen MacGomery fall in love with Avery and the inns and outs of the MacGomery family as they complete the Inn in Boonsboro. I feel I know them all! Have already bought and started on Book 3.
