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 love almost everything Nora Roberts writes. This book is no exception. Great characters, good story line. Tied the trilogy up nicely.
Always enjoy Nora Roberts books. I read the first two in this series and thoroughly enjoyed them Due to time limits I decided to get the audible version of this book. I enjoyed the story, but the male narration threw me for a loop! He was OK - but when I listen to Nora Roberts I prefer a female narrator - -
It is such a shame that the narration is so bad on this trilogy. The story is good, and I could, "almost", identify with the characters. However, the narration continues to be a problem. This time, I was unable to speed the narrator up to a reasonable speed by increasing the playback to 1.5x ... it was way too fast in this novel. So, I just had to suffer through the LONG pauses and drawn out sentences.
The story is good.. the plot and romance was typical Nora..
I'd just avoid this narrator in the future.
I have mixed feelings about recommending this listen.. if you can stand long, long pauses.. and a slow reader,.. ok.
Actually, it is a great substitute for a sleeping pill!
I haven't read a Nora Roberts trilogy in at least 5 years, but the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy reminded me why I like her writing so much. I would recommend all three books in the trilogy. The characters are well developed and the relationships that are formed are deep and abiding. I especially like the auxillary characters and the sense of family in these books. All three are very entertaining.
This was my first Nora Roberts series. They are pretty predictable but a nice and easy, fun romance
I like listening to books on tape so I prefer listening to it.
In this book Ryder
I just like that it was consistent with the other books.
I did find the recollection of war moving but otherwise I still found the whole ghost aspect of the book quirky.
I like a good trilogy and I think this one fits into that description.
If you have read/listened to the first two books in this trilogy, this one is worth it but was SO predictable. The story line followed the previous two with the same bad guy from the past interfering. I didn't get the chemistry, if any, between these characters - it was too forced. I prefer Nora Roberts suspense stories.
It's worth reading if you have read the previous two books in the trilogy.
I enjoyed the narrator and he certainly added to the experience.
Caffeine needed beforehand.
This was an enjoyable listen. I do not think I would have made it through the book but the narration is excellent and made it worth it.
Pronunciation is good.
But what a pity, I can only listen to part of them.
Listen to the story for many times.
This book is comparable to the other books in the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy. Nice story, good characters, easy listen - a definite feel good story.
