After two long years of planning, rehabbing, and rebuilding, the Inn at Boonsboro is getting close to being completed. Owen Montgomery takes care of the money and the details for the project. He has been visiting Avery MacTavish at her pizza shop across the street, sometimes just to get a quiet place to make phone calls. Avery doesn't mind. She's been friends with Owen since they were kids. As a matter of fact, Owen was her first boyfriend. Now an impulsive kiss may have changed their relationship forever.
The second book in Nora Roberts Inn at Boonsboro trilogy starts while they are still completing the finishing touches to the Inn. I wish the book was illustrated. I'd love to see the finished product. Some of the rooms sound fabulous. This book is about longtime friends Owen and Avery whose relationship has changed. They were nervous about what this would do to their friendship in the long run. There were no real problems in their relationship, so I found their romance to be kind of boring.
My favorite part of this story was the ghost subplot. I'm looking forward to seeing what information the characters dig up about the ghost. I also enjoyed the tidbits of Ryder and Hope and their New Years Eve kiss. I'm looking forward to their book since they have a turbulent association. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
Of the three, this one to me had the most laugh-out-loud moments. Great continuation of the family and the story was well told and unfolded well. Really enjoyed this trilogy from start to finish!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read it in one day. The storyline is believable and the characters are developed further. There were some moments that I laughed at loud. I can not wait to read the last book because I really want to see what is going on in Ryder's head. He is so rude to Hope! When his Mom called him out on his rudeness it was so funny to see him squirm!
An excellent story of 3 young women and 3 brothers who work together to own and run several businesses. Funny, tender, and sad at times. Nora Roberts can spin an authentic tale including a ghost.
