B.J. was manager of an inn. She had worked there since she was old enough to work and she is now 24. She loves the inn because of it's "down to earth, comfortable" manner. It is a simple little place where one would go year after year til they grow old. She also lives there. Taylor is a big shot hotel buyer and has just bought the inn and wants to do all kinds of work to fix the place up to be a "grand" hotel. He instanly falls in love with B.J., but being that she is still young and knows nothing of love she doesn't want him. She hates him because she thinks that he is intruding on her life. They clash a lot in this book over the hotel, (as expected though, being that the place means so much to her.) I did find that B.J. was not that mature and I find it hard to believe that she actually is a manager of that inn. Taylor is demanding and is actually mean to B.J. Especially when Darla comes to the inn. Darla is Taylors decorator. She causes nothing but trouble for B.J. and Taylor. Anyway, this is a really SHORT book, so if you don't like it then really no harm done because it shouldn't of taken that long to read, but I LIKED this book a lot and would highly recommend it.
I am a big Nora Roberts fan; however, I can tell by reading this novel that it's one of her early works because it doesn't contain the character development of her latest novels. Still, it's a nice easy read for a lazy Sunday afternoon. The basis of the novel is that BJ Clark, the protagonist, runs a small, charming and old-fashioned inn, and sparks begin to fly when hotel tycoon Taylor Reynolds comes to town to modernize her inn and destroy its uniqueness. A typical happy ending ensues.
Great romance - old fashion vs new world powerful. BJ vs. Taylor and the heart wins out.
A female Vermont Inn manager is bought out by a Hotel Tycoon and sparks fly!
