What a off pairing! But a beautiful one. Anyone can be a friend, no matter how old, what color, any diet!, any religion. It just takes kindness in thisworld. THAT IS WHAT WE NEED MORE OF! Since 9/11, things in this country have gone BACK to the way it used to be 9/10. I AM SADDENED BY THIS FACT. Aren't you? What happened to the flags, the kindness, the silence on the city streets? What happened to people being friendly? Yes, we may go through longer lines at the airports, but isn't it worth it? Just think what could have been prevented had these security measures been enforced then. PREVENTION! Why does it ALWAYS takes a death to make necessary adjustments? Why? My daughter was little and had nightmares because of this country. I fixed that. With a trip to the firehouse .a thank ypu.

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....

Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.
