Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out - with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except, apparently, Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro....
As the former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be - except for in her love life. Her only interaction with the opposite sex has been sparring with the infuriating Ryder, who always seems to get under her skin. Still, no one can deny the electricity that crackles between them…a spark that ignited with a New Year’s Eve kiss.
While the inn is running smoothly, thanks to Hope’s experience and unerring instincts, her big-city past is about to make an unwelcome - and embarrassing - appearance. Seeing Hope vulnerable stirs up Ryder’s emotions and makes him realize that while Hope may not be perfect, she just might be perfect for him…

I really enjoyed this final installment in the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy. I love series. The romance is good & the storyline is fun. Highly recommend. The narrator did the first two in this series & greatly improved in the last two. Enjoyed him as well
It's pretty close to the top ~ it's a little soft around the edges, but Nora's trilogy's tend to be, so I expect that. I still love her writing no matter what ~ but this one was so focused on Boonesboro & the rebuilding of the town it was interesting, but almost edged out the rest of the story.
Lizzy, the ghost. I loved the whole back story there.
Ha. When Hope sprayed Ryder with the water hose! Loved it.
Hmmm...I did when Ryder dreamed about Billy's death. Broke my heart.
Again, Nora writes an amazing story ~ so when I rate this a 4, it's still made of awesome, just not my very favorite by her, and that's just because I tend to like her grittier books better, lol. The narrator for this book was excellent, he did an amazing job w/ the characters, and I loved, loved the whole thread of the ghost and her search for her lost love ~ and how it was tied up in a neat little bow in this book.

Yes because the story has such natural character development and the underlying story line about the Lizzie the ghost is captivating and how she works her way to become part of the family leaves you wanting more.
I like how Nora Roberts surprises you at the ghost's connection with the family and weaves her history into the family's story today.
His voice is perfectly paced. He never has a problem giving characters different voices in fact he is the best I've listened to after more than 20 audiobook purchases. He is not slow. He is not fast.
Looking for someone to read you a story and speak the quotes in the book like they are actually sounding like conversation? Cloud is your voice. He doesn't deliver lines like he is reading. He delivers it as if he is talking exactly what other narrators should do.
I cried when Ryder has his moment and that's all I can say without give the book away.
Say something about yourself!
It must be so fulfilling to share these wonderful stories with so many people. I enjoyed each in this series but she saved the best for last. It had so much humor in it....I laughed out loud alot. It was charming and you completed Lizzie so well. A solid 10 on all counts as far as I am concerned.
NRoberts writes the stories that I go to for a second or third or more listen more than any other author. She has the ability to take us out of our lives and into a lovely place. She is a gifted writer. I look forward to your future books.
I love this narrator....I find his voice smooth and calming. Involving without being jarring.
I love this series. I wish they didn't have to end. A perfect mix of love, turmoil, indecision.... just a really good listen. The whole series was
I absolutely loved it--wish she had introduced a cousin or other relative to continue the series. I most definitely will listen again. Good story with a little suspense!!
I think the narrator has become one of the favorite readers of women's romance books. You could hear the difference in the voices of the characters.
One Excellent Story
The two moments when Lizzy appeared and spoke with them. It sent chills down my spine.
I loved this whole series. Not only did we have the storyline of the 3 brothers and their women, we had another story of Lizzy and her Billy. I found myself wanted to read the books nonstop because I was so interested in both stories. I only wish that when Lizzy and Billy were reunited, it would have been more detailed. I would have certainly cried if Nora Roberts would have done into more detail and gave them a more thought out reunion.
Pretty close to the top!
The graveyard scene toward the end.
Really good interpretation of different voices. And, the exact replica of emotion!
I abso-poso-tively Cried!!!!
Great series - Nora rocks again!!
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I didn't really care for book 1 or 2 in this series but had to get the third because it was Ryder's story. He made all the books more interesting and funny so this was a must read for me. Much like the others it had some boring parts and I didn't really care much for the ghost story. Overall I thought it was an easy "read" and I don't regret using my credit. I just wish his story was first.
Ryder and Hope's story was the perfect ending to the trilogy. Figuring out how everything from the first book until now played a part in all their lives. Not sure exactly what to say. Ms. Roberts out did herself with Hope and Ryder as well as with the entire Montgomery family and the people of Boonsboro. Everyday hard working people trying to make it and along the way find long ago past family, friends and additional ties. Small town life at its best.
"An excellent listen"
I loved this whole trilogy, Nora Roberts is one of my favourite authors. This book is a very satisfying conclusion to the whole story, set in a lovely place, it was moving, funny and sad, interesting to follow the characters and their relationships.
Macleod Andrews' narration was wonderful and brought the whole thing to life.
Hope snags the third brother, Ryder; but will the resident ghost be united with her man?
"Good but not great book!"
As a fan of Nora Roberts I was looking forward to this final book of the trilogy and thought I would try it in this format. A good book not a great book, however really enjoyed listening to it in this format.
