Whenever Owen needs a quiet place to make some impor...more

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 bust on his compulsive list-making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open ri

I laughed out loud, I cried, I begged the clock for just one more minute and I raced my way to the end. I fell in love with the Inn when I saw it in real life and this series has just expanded that! The whole story worked for me, Owen and Avery, Clare and Beckett, Lizzy and her mysterious beau, and I was thoroughly surprised with the way some of the relationships developed.
Book Two i...more
'The Last Boyfriend' was better than 'The Next Always', which had the heavy-handed visitor's center advertisement feel to it.
One complaint that I have always had with some of NR's writing is that she really tries to force cursing/crassness into dialogue and it just sounds awkward/not...more
Sometimes my enjoyment of a contemporary romance novel is directly related to how much I can relate to the two main characters. In the first installment of the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy, I couldn't really relate to war-widow Clare and her three young boys. But, book two better introduces us to Avery - perhaps my literary alter-ego. She is a chronically disorganized work-aholic who is full of energy and good will, but also relishes in local gossip and occasionally petty co...more
Now that I've read two of Nora's books, I'd call them gentle, slow love stories. There is no real pinna...more
In More Detail: (spoilers) Because there will be three books in the Inn Boonsboro series it will be no surprise when Hope and Ryder are the next couple paired off, right? And even as I type that I will be very disappointed if it isn’t what happens. I think Ryder is the character I am most interested in learning more about. I also predict that Clare will have a girl. The book was predictable but I still enjoyed reading it. I pretty much ignored the ghos...more
Well, it wasn't as bad as the first. But it wasn't fabulous. Or even just really good. It was Okay. The couple featured in this one is much more inter...more
Owen Montgomery owned the inn along with his brothers and their spouses, among other buildings in town. The brothers know carpentry and architecture. They had plans to open by Jan 15th and it was closing in on Dec.
Avery MacTavish owned and ran the pizza place across the street from the Inn. She often would let Owen sit and do his calculations and other quiet business things before he had to head back to physically work at the Inn.
They meet to help others fix up...more
"I love you, you love me
we're a happy family
with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you
won't you say you love me too
I love you, you love me
we're best friends like friends should be
with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you
won't you say you love me too."
Sorry, I just had to defer to Barney, the Purple Dinosaur on that one.
Okay, so I liked all the characters, just like I did in the first book in the trilogy becau...more
There was a lot of furniture / finishings talk. It didn't bother me all that much. The scene that did was the one with the warped table. It just seemed so unnecessary and felt really long even though it wasn't. Or maybe I'd just reached my limit at that point.
I think the problem for me with this book wasn't the couple or their relationship but the fact that it didn't seem to...more

'The Last Boyfriend', although somewhat predictable, it was pleasantly so and had a few surprises in there too. I would go as far as to say it's a 'feel...more

Her family were avid readers, so books were always important in her life. She attended a Catholic school and credits the nuns with instilling in her a sense of discipline. During her sopho...more

“That’s what I’m saying. And they have been for a couple years now.”
“Fuck,” Ryder muttered.
“Don’t say fuck when he’s telling us about Mom and Willy B. I don’t want that verb and those names together in my head.”
