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…

My Favorite of the Series

What made the experience of listening to The Perfect Hope the most enjoyable?

By the time you get to this book in the series, you're so in love with the characters, the Inn and with the Montgomery family. It was fun to watch the layers melt away and the back story of Lizzie and Billy come to light. Loved it!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Perfect Hope?

There's a scene where "perfect" Hope gets Rider with the garden hose - hilarious, especially when his brother finds out.

What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

I loved how he read the men's character's voices - very charming.

Any additional comments?

I've listened to this series a couple times now and absolutely love it - I would love for the story to keep on going!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend and I have. It is a feel good book. Makes you think there is a special someone out there just for you.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Perfect Hope?

Ryder going to bat for Hope. He was so manly. Not losing an inch in his way of thinking.

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

Avery and Owens.

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

Justin who had much love for all. No judgment of any one - just love.

I wanted to love it

What do you think your next listen will be?

I'm in the middle of Robyn Carr's Virgin River. Love it.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the first book, liked the second, and listened as the third book dragged on and on about ghosts. The wrap up of the main characters was enjoyable and the reader was well suited to the text, but the ghost stuff was awful. I mostly forwarded through it.

Perfect! Loved It.

Ryder and Hope's story was the perfect ending to the trilogy. Figuring out how everything from the first book until now played a part in all their lives. Not sure exactly what to say. Ms. Roberts out did herself with Hope and Ryder as well as with the entire Montgomery family and the people of Boonsboro. Everyday hard working people trying to make it and along the way find long ago past family, friends and additional ties. Small town life at its best.

Loved this series ghost and all.

Ryder was my favourite character, he was rough around the edge and required taming and hope was just the character to do it.

Enjoyable Trilogy

Would you listen to The Perfect Hope again? Why?

Thoroughly enjoyed The Perfect Hope and the entire Inn Boonsboro Trilogy. Although predictable, the writing was wonderful and the narration made the books. Couldn't wait to get back to these books and fell in love with the characters. Wish there were more!

Hope's Book

This one was going to be my favorite as I had a feeling Hope's ex was going to resurface. I disagree with some of the other reviewers about how Clare had her book and this should be dedicated to Hope. I love the way the old characters are still around and it definately added to the story in my opinion. I also love how we hear about Clare's pregnancy, Avery's moving in with Owen to get married and how Ryder and Hope's chemistry kind of started out in Avery's book. We also learn that Lizzy and Hope are related.... =P Anyways, great listen and I'll be looking for more NR books to listen to in the future.

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.

loved the series

thoroughly enjoyed all 3 books in this series. loved the characters and each of their stories, loved the ghost and her story as well. i really did not want it to end.
the narrator was good, at first it seemed that he was bored with the telling of it but once i got used to his slowness he was fine, just he should not be allowed to do children characters because truly all children do not whine every time they open their mouths. that became really annoying.
