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…

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
I enjoyed all three stories in Nora's trilogy. This one was by far the best! The mystery of the lost/ghost lovers was solved in a very satisfying way. Hope and Ryder were a fun couple to watch in action. Although I would have liked a lil more story on the ex-boyfriend, that was not resolved to my satisfaction. These were fun, light listening to stories, something to occupy the mind, remove you from the daily stresses of life.
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.
In the top 10!
It took me in as if I were actually a guest at Inn BoonsBoro!
Vision through her animated reading.
I even looked up the details and told my husband I wanted to go to Maryland and stay at the Inn BoonsBoro!
what a great ending to a great trilogy, never disappointed in anything that Nora writes
Mom w/3 kids 23 22 & 19. Luv audible. listen while I editing photos I take.Portrait wedding family Mystery Historical N.Roberts,I.Johansen,
Yes...such a wonderful book...loved the characters, the family, the men, the women, all of it.
The best by far! I wish he did more of Nora's books. He is so perfect for the all the characters.
Why can't there be a book 4!!!!
This book the third, of three, is as good as the other two. All three are wonderfully written and then wonderfully read. Read it, you will love it.
I love how interwoven all the characters are. They feel really real.
Been a while, so I don't remember her name, but the gal that owns the pizza shop...because she is casual, and quirky, and strong.
The narrators voice is extremely sexy. Does men and women with no trouble. Will be looking for more work by him. Wish he did more Nora Roberts.
This was the book to tie everything together. I love the way Nora Roberts connects her books through the characters and I love learning new things about each character with every new point of view. This was a lovely end to the series, sufficiently enticing me to move to a tiny town and open an inn. Aaannd perhaps find my own Montgomery brother.....Excuse me while I go pack my bags.
Read the book instead of listening.
I am a huge Nora Roberts fan but found this trilogy to be mostly an advertisement for the inn she and her husband have restored. The descriptions of the rooms in the inn are lavish; the story is a bit weak.
Nevertheless, having met the characters in the first two books, I was looking forward to the third. I was sorry that I had chosen to purchase the audio book instead of the book itself, as I often found myself wincing at the reader's inflections. I got the sense that he didn't really LIKE the secondary characters, as they come across as being one-dimensional and often silly.
Yes and I did
Ryder and Dumbass
An excellent series, wish Nora had more like this one. Down to earth with interesting characters. Love Ryder and Hope and the ghost!
