“Not as impressed with this book. It was okay and I had to read it since I'd started the series and feel compelled to finish, but definitely lacking in oomph. Nora Roberts definitely has more talent than what was showcased in this book. I enjoyed the first one, but this was just mediocre. However,...”see full review » see other reviews »
“Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family's construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn't plan for was Avery MacTavish....
Avery's popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a first-hand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen. Since he was her first boyfriend when they were kids, Owen has never been far from Avery's thoughts. But the attraction she's feeling for him now is far from innocent.
As Avery and Owen cautiously take their relationship to another level, the opening of the inn gives the whole town of BoonsBoro a reason to celebrate. But Owen's hard work has only begun. Getting Avery to let down her guard is going to take longer than he expected - and so will getting her to realize that her first boyfriend is going to be her last....

“O dear. Another sales/decorating brochure. If I wasn't a long time fan of NR I would have given up on this book before page 40. Luckily it improved a little bit after a while, but it was still far, far below her usual standard. Too much research, not enough emotion, tension etc.
Again - apart from a short scene nearly at the end of the book - there's no tension between the main characters. They glide into love effortlessly... boringly. There's barely any story there.
Sniff, I want the old Nora back.

“Nora and her trilogy's good way to sell books... this is the second installment of the Inn Boonsboro trilogy. I did enjoy them. Read them in order then you will get all
the idiosyncrasies of the characters. Good easy read. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy”
“This was different. They didn't all of a sudden fall in love. It was there, just simmering and they decide to take the plunge. But before they actually do the plunging they take some time to think about it. It's all very civilized for a romance novel!
It's fun to see all the ins and outs of the Inn & the restaurants & shops. I'm hoping that the next book will have the opening of the newest restaurant in it. It's funny how invested I am in the businesses! I'm curious about Lizzy's story and what will happen with Justine too.
Justine KILLS me! When she went to box Ry in the ears for being rude to Hope I actually laughed out loud. More about the brother's reactions than the act itself, but it was probably the first time I've ever actually laughed out loud reading a Nora Roberts book.
So now we're onto Ry & Hope. Shocker. Let's see how that one plays out. ”

“2nd book in the Inn Boonsboro trilogy. With determination and talent, the Montgomery family renovate a vacant building from the Civil War era and turn it into an Inn. A strong minded mother, three handsome sons and a ghostly visitor at the inn takes you to Maryland and to the real town of Boonsboro. Incidentally, the inn itself is real, it is owned by author Nora Roberts and her husband.”BZ wrote this review Friday, April 26, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Ugh. This is by far her worst series. Girls chattering like jr high school girls. Guys without any flaws. The inane conversations and descriptions are very boring. The best part of the story is the backstory of the ghosts!”My Books wrote this review Monday, February 11, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
