Publisher's Summary

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.

    Where does The Perfect Hope rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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 - -

    "Again, bad narration, good story"

    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!

    "Nora Roberts Can Still Deliver a Good Story"

    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.

    Story
    "Good ending to a quirky trilogy"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Perfect Hope to be better than the print version?

    I like listening to books on tape so I prefer listening to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In this book Ryder


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    I just like that it was consistent with the other books.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I did find the recollection of war moving but otherwise I still found the whole ghost aspect of the book quirky.


    Any additional comments?

    I like a good trilogy and I think this one fits into that description.

    "Good Listen - Great road trip book"
    Would you listen to The Perfect Hope again? Why?

    Yes - just like a good movie sometimes you miss something the first time around. Worth listening to again.

    Story
    "Predictable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Would you recommend The Perfect Hope to your friends? Why or why not?

    It's worth reading if you have read the previous two books in the trilogy.


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed the narrator and he certainly added to the experience.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Caffeine needed beforehand.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "a nice book"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Pronunciation is good.
    But what a pity, I can only listen to part of them.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    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.
