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 enjoyed this last book in the trilogy but it wasn't as good as the other two. I loved how they found Billy for the Ghost at the Inn.
I LOVE Nora Roberts and I haven't read a book yet from her that I didn't like.
Yea read another Nora roberts book
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
Hope's story and how she gets together with Ryder is a wonderful wrap up to this trilogy. I enjoyed the banter and the layers that each character showed. As I noted in my review of the first book (The Next Always), the narrator still reads more slowly than I like, but he's fixed the terrible child voices and carries the strong along quickly enough that I only switched to 1 1/2 times a couple of times during the story. Although this isn't my favorite NR trilogy (Three Sisters and Born In hold that position), it was still a delightful way to spend my commute time.
I enjoy Nora Roberts but this is not her best. I didn't connect to Hope as much as the two other female characters in books 1 & 2.
When Rylie drives down to the city and sorts out the ex'es family.
This is the first book that I have read of Nora Roberts that I cannot say anything positive about it. I had thought it would be a nice easy going relaxing story.
The story line was poor - you were expected to believe in a ghost appearing and talking to everyone looking for her lost love.
Tell us about yourself!
Just continuing the story and seeing Ryder's defenses fall.
Just the other books in the series
Love this series and Nora Roberts!!!!
The third book always makes me want more!!!!!!
I haven't read anything of Nora Roberts i didn't like!!!
I felt as if I came to know the town of Boonsboro and the main characters. I looked forward to hearing what they were up to each time I listened. Nora Roberts seems to have a way of making you feel as if you are part of the story.
The family. It's a great story about family, about loyalty and about friendship.
He was ok, not the best and not the worst. Once you got absorbed into the story his shortcomings faded away.
Sure, but since that wasn't possible I found myself looking forward to each time I could listen.
This is the third book in the series. After listening to all of them, I wanted to hear more about this family and the small town they live in. It was an easy listen.
Moved to Stratford Ontario in 2014. Listen to my stories at night in bed mostly. Like narrators that aren't too loud or shrill!
Loved the way Nora worked in all the characters - including the ghost!
The stories flowed well from one to the next.
The voices of the young boys were true to kids that age - thought I was hearing my own Grandsons (3 of the same age grouping)!
Would be best to start with #1 if possible.
