The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.
After losing her husband and returning to her hometown, Clare Brewster soon settles into her life as the mother of three young sons while running the town’s bookstore. Though busy and with little time for romance, Clare is drawn across the street by Beckett’s transformation of the old inn, wanting to take a closer look… at both the building and the man behind it.
With the grand opening inching closer, Beckett is happy to give Clare a private tour - one room at a time, in between blueprint meetings and kindergarten pickups. It’s no first date, but these stolen moments are the beginning of something that could arouse the secret yearning that resides in Clare’s independent heart - and open the door to the extraordinary adventure of what comes next....

Probably about an 8
The end was good
Have only lisrened to three. Rates very good.
Not one special moment,
A little unrealistic but a good listen. After all it is fiction.
No, his attempt at women and children's voices was like chalk on a blackboard.
The sameness as her other books.
As stated above.
Awful! Awful! Awful! It's hard to enjoy a romantic story when the narrator can only o manly voice!
I wasted my money buying the trilogy when the narrator is the same or all three books.
Great love story
The love and friendship relations between all the characters
He did an okay job on the women voices. However loved the men voices.
Yes,it made me laugh and cry.
I love Nora Roberts books. She's a wonderful author!!
I love the storyline, but I always love Nora Roberts books. The only thing that slightly turned me off to this book was the narrator. His "kid" voices are terrible. Other than that I didn't so much mind, but he is not my favorite narrator.
Say something about yourself!
I think this series would be best sent to Harlequin and combined so as to save time and money. Something truly lacking in the story, no depth and the narration is as slow as frozen molasses.
I am a Nora Roberts fan btw just not this series and certainly not for the cost.
I really like Nora Roberts books but this one I almost found unbearable. The narrator tried hard but with so many characters especially three children it was difficult. I felt the story was good and thankfully it picked up near the end but there was toooooo much information on the Inn the discriptions seemed to go on and on. I got tired of hearing about it. I felt it took too much away from the story.
It was okay. Pretty predicatable in some ways. The ghost adds a little dimension. I plan to read the whole series.
This is really fun light weight listening. I enjoyed the whole series. If you enjoy books with humor, kids, dogs and romance buy this book.
Yes. It was a good book. As always, Nora did not let me down.
The narrator was good. Love the way each person had their own personality.
It took me a couple of days to get through becuase of the time I had available to me to read but I could've read it all at once if I had the time. I moved right into the second one and now the third one in the trilogy.
