The Perfect Hope: Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy, Book 3 | [Nora Roberts]

The Perfect Hope: Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy, Book 3

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....

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…

    "Perfect Ending!"

    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.

    "Third times the charm"

    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.

    Story
    ""Is That Code?""
    What did you love best about The Perfect Hope?

    Great use of cute dialogue NR can do in her series books. This is a simple story, nothing deep, but if you know her series books, this one is NOT to be missed. NR does use curse words in this one so if that does not offend, this was a wonderful use of her imagination pulling her other good series together in a new one.


    What other book might you compare The Perfect Hope to and why?

    If you are a long time fan of NR series: The blue dahlia kid slaves, Seaswept dog and brothers, Heaven and Earth and Dance upon the Air women. Wonderful dialogue not to be missed. Yes, there is the some slow dialogue NR uses when she starts to describe areas, but she did that in these other books too. This book was GREAT if you are a fan of the other series named.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    when Ryder is asked to "Go With it" and he requests pie for his reward.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This brought back good memories of those books named. I purchase this one first as Ryder was so appealing. I LOVE MacLoud Andrews and had looked for more of his work after Robert Crasis book he read. He has a wonderful reading technique and his female and kids voices are good.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for NR main stream type of book, this is not it! This is a warm story, with lots of descriptions as NR can write, and lots of cute dialogue you have to be in the mood for. Enjoy

    Story
    "The Perfect Ending to a Good Series ~"
    Where does The Perfect Hope rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lizzy, the ghost. I loved the whole back story there.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Ha. When Hope sprayed Ryder with the water hose! Loved it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Hmmm...I did when Ryder dreamed about Billy's death. Broke my heart.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Positively Natural and Bright"
    Would you listen to The Perfect Hope again? Why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried when Ryder has his moment and that's all I can say without give the book away.

    "NR Thank you....wonderful listen"

    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 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.
