I loved this series. Happy endings. ( )

This books is a lovely start to a new series. There is a great cast, a beautiful environment, and a little bit of the supernatural thrown in. I have to admit, I went and look up the Inn Boonsboro website to check the pictures against the descriptions in the book, and I loved how meta Nora got by actually include Eve and Roarke as a couple for one of the rooms. Beckett and Claire are a great new couple to follow, and now I cannot wait for book two. ( )

As I began to read this book I thought it was just a simple romance story. Widow (Clare) returns to her hometown with her children, the boy (Becket) who loved her in highschool becomes her friend and eventually it becomes more than that, and eventually they get married. Well, this was all in there, but there was more to the story. This is the first book in the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy featuring the three Montgomery brothers. They are renovating and old Inn hoping it will become a boutique hotel and bring in tourists to their small town. The dynamics in this family are great, they love their mother and have such a wonderful relationship with her. The Inn has some surprises in store for the reader and there is also a rather scary situation involving Clare. Becket has to convince Clare that she doesn't have to do everything on her own and it is okay to accept help from friends and that is not as simple as it sounds. It is a nice romance but there is some drama and suspense thrown in as well. I am looking forward to the rest of the series. ( )

The three Montgomery brothers, Beckett, Owen, and Ryder, and their mother Justine, have bought an old inn and are rehabbing it to reopen as a high-end bed & breakfast.

Widowed Claire Brewster is raising her three boys, and running a bookstore called Turn the Page across from the old inn. Her best friend Avery runs a restaurant, Vesta, nearby.

Their other best friend from college, Hope, is a hotel manager who wants to relocate away from DC.

Since this is a Nora Roberts romance novel, it hardly seems like a spoiler to say that this book is Claire and Beckett's story.

The setting is small town Virginia near a variety of tourist attractions. Roberts as always makes the character's likable and interesting, and adds a bit of the fantastic with ghost haunting the old inn. There's also an all too realistic, believable villain. It's a satisfying, enjoyable romance, with just enough excitement to keep it interesting.


I bought this audiobook. ( )
