Publisher's Summary

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....

    "Narration leaves room for improvement"

    I love Nora, have read/listened to every book but the male narration and specifically this person just threw me off. He was "ok". The story is not bad, but not my favorite audio book by far.

    "The worst perfomance I've heard"
    What would have made The Next Always better?

    The performance was dreadful and distracted from the story. Perhaps if the book had been


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    Yes, in fact I'll probably read this book once I've had a chance to forget the audio version.


    What didn’t you like about MacLeod Andrews’s performance?

    It was demeaning to the author, characters and the audience.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, the attention to detail about the rehab of the Inn was interesting.

    "My ears almost bled "

    For what the book deemed well behaved children, the narrator made them incredibly difficult to listen to. I was caught completely off guard when the volume seemed to increase so drastically.

    "Needs a different Narrator"

    I love this first book from Nora, but the narrator sucked!!! Sandra Burr would be excellent for this continuing trilogy!

    "Narrator Not Up to Par"

    I am listening to THE NEXT ALWAYS right now---The narrator stinks. I do not dislike male narrators. I have many male narrators I like. My favorite male narrator is Scott Brick. Victor Slezak narrates most of Sandra Brown's books and does a wonderful job. Nick Poedhl did a good job reading Nora's BLACK HILLS. This MacLeod Andrews must be new. He's not very good He doesn't do a very good job with the females characters. Had I not started the series I wouldn't finish it because of the narrator.

    As one of the reviewers said IT'S THE NARRATOR THAT MAKES THE BOOK. This narrator does not make it in my book.

    Wish this book was read by Susan Ericksen or Suzie Breck. They are my favorite female narrators.

    "Classic Nora Roberts"

    Overall, I enjoyed this book. If you are a Nora Roberts fan you will too. It was a bit slow in places, but not for very long. The set up for the next books in the series are obvious, but I am looking forward to reading them. I like the family dynamic between the brothers and their mom, and the small town setting.

    "Liked the story but..."

    I really disliked the narration. In the beginning I wasn't sure I could continue but I kept going and like the story. I'm looking forward to the next book but if it's the same narrator I won't be listening to it.
