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…

Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
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.
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 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
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.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
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.
Absolutely-she is a good author
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).
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.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I have not read the printed version, but I am so addicted to listening that I cannot imagine reading it could be any better.
I do like Nora's books and have read several but I've moved on to a more "hotter" storyline, Nora is tame.
I know I did not like Ryder's voice, it did not seem natural.
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.
Yes, I usually like Nora Roberts
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.
MacLeod Andrews was a good reader and did a fine job
Foul Language. The story would have been much better without it
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.
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!
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.
Hope snags the third brother, Ryder; but will the resident ghost be united with her man?
"Good but not great book!"
As a fan of Nora Roberts I was looking forward to this final book of the trilogy and thought I would try it in this format. A good book not a great book, however really enjoyed listening to it in this format.
