The Perfect Hope - Inn BoonsBoro, Bk 3 Author:Nora Roberts 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.... more » 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…« less

With accurate depictions of children, the noise and love that come from extended family gatherings, and romance from a gruff man nudged along by a ghost this book truly was heart-warming. Not only do you get Ryder and Hope's romance, but you also see all the couples from the other books in the series. This happy ending brought tears to my eyes.

I loved this group from Nora Roberts. It was the first book of this author that I read and I couldn't but the books down and ended up reading all three in about two weeks. Definitely a nice easy read where you truly care about the characters and the family.
Ryder Montgomery and Hope Beaumont have clashed ever since she became the Innkeeper for the Boonsboro Inn that is owned by Ryder's family. Ryder wanted someone who lived in the area and knew small town life. He believes Hope, a former manager at a glamorous D.C. hotel, is a city girl who wouldn't like the small town atmosphere. Hope left her old job when she discovered her boyfriend had been cheating on her when he dumped her and married another woman. When he comes to Boonsboro to convince her to come back to her old job and him, she sees red and asks Ryder to play her lover in order to get rid of the old one for good.
The final book in the Inn at Boonsboro trilogy was my favorite of the series. I thought Ryder and Hope worked well as a couple. I could see them falling in love as the story progressed. A secondary plot carried throughout the series. A ghost haunts the restored Inn, sometimes helping the main characters with their individual romances. Her story and the reason why she is at the Inn comes to a good conclusion. My rating: 4 Stars.
