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…

    "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.

    "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.

    "Great End to a Delightful Series"

    I really enjoyed this final installment in the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy. I love series. The romance is good & the storyline is fun. Highly recommend. The narrator did the first two in this series & greatly improved in the last two. Enjoyed him as well

    Story
    "Not-So-Wonderful Book, Not-So-Wonderful Reading"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Read the book instead of listening.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    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.

    Story
    "NOT a fan of this series but this is the best of 3"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is difficult to answer as, overall this was my favorite of the series...I found the series very tedious.

    I bought the set on sale - I think each book was $4.95-$6.95. I took a chance as I love many of Nora Roberts (not a fan of her JD Robb works). I would not use a credit or pay discounted member price.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    Absolutely-she is a good author


    Would you be willing to try another one of MacLeod Andrews’s performances?

    I am rarely critical of readers however the answer to this is: No, no, no.....his male characters were o.k. - females sounded like effeminate males and children were like nails on a chalkboard (actually nails on a chalkboard would be preferable).


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    The family is restoring an inn and the series is full of descriptions of renovating, decorating, etc. While this info may be close to NR heart I think for the casual reader like me it was grating & tedious.

    Story
    "The 3rd..had to listen."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Perfect Hope to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the printed version, but I am so addicted to listening that I cannot imagine reading it could be any better.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    I do like Nora's books and have read several but I've moved on to a more "hotter" storyline, Nora is tame.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    I know I did not like Ryder's voice, it did not seem natural.


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

    This was the 3rd so it was nice coming to a conclusion and finding out the secrets of the Inn but it was a bit of a let down.

    Story
    "Liked the First Two disappointed in Third"
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or MacLeod Andrews?

    Yes, I usually like Nora Roberts


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I really enjoyed the first book so when I could I ordered books 2 & 3. Book two was pretty good (liked one better) but book three had so much unnecessary foul language that I really think it took away from the story. The book would have been just fine and entertaining without having to use that much foul language.


    What didn’t you like about MacLeod Andrews’s performance?

    MacLeod Andrews was a good reader and did a fine job


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Foul Language. The story would have been much better without it

    "Not the best in the series but still a good story."

    I love Nora Roberts and have never read or listened to anything of hers that I didn't enjoy. I completely loved the first two books in the series and thought this one was just average. That said, Nora's average is better than many author's best. You know what to expect when you pick up one of her books and she never disappoints.

    "I loved it!"
    Where does The Perfect Hope rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 10!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It took me in as if I were actually a guest at Inn BoonsBoro!


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

    Vision through her animated reading.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I even looked up the details and told my husband I wanted to go to Maryland and stay at the Inn BoonsBoro!

    "Performance not good"

    The story, as always, is a wonderful Nora Roberts tale. She is consistently a joy. Why are we settling for one voice on audible performances? This voice is a great man's voice. As a woman it is quite evident that what we need is two performers doing audible books. Is there some reason we aren't demanding this?

    "An excellent listen"

    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.
