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.

Love Nora Roberts. Love country inns. Love buildings and the details that go into them. Really sweet story. ( )

This story was delightful. And as a military wife, I must say that she "got" what it is like when the soldiers are gone. I don't know, thankfully, what it is like to be a soldier's widow, but the whole independent nature, do-it-myself, don't-share-the-small-stuff attitude that Clare has is right and true. ( )

Welp, my first Nora Roberts (not counting J. D. Robb) and it was just what I needed after my last intense listen, and a very personally stressful week. I really enjoyed the characters, the setting, and the little bit of paranormal activity that wasn't the center of the story, but was very important nevertheless. I will most likely be listening to the rest of the trilogy, since I really want to see gruff Ryder fall! I loved Beckett's interaction with Claire's boys, that was great. And the reason for Liam wanting a Barbie, that made me laugh out loud. ( )
