The Perfect Hope (Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy #3)
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 toolb...more

In the final book of the Boonsboro Trilogy, the focus is no longer on building the Inn Boonsboro, but rather a couple different storylines take center stage. The first being the obvious romance that’s been building between Ryder and Hope from the moment she stepped into town and was hired as the inn keeper. The ghost, Lizzy, stills plays a major role as her story gets wrapped up. It wouldn’t be a book in this trilogy if the Montgomery men w ...more
As I read, I couldn't help thinking that this book is so aspirational. The 3 heroines are beautiful. Intelligent, strong and accomplished. The 3 heroes are strong, skilled, handsome. They are all young people and most of them own successful b ...more
Especially this year my too high, maybe even unreasonable expectations have ruined quite a few promising books for me, so I was hopeful and anxious at the same time when I started reading.
So like I said, sometimes they can ruin everythi ...more

SUMMARY (50 words or less)
I think this is my favorite book of the series slightly edging out Beckett’s story. Riley is just soooo hot. Anywho, this book has a lot more tension and build up, I think that also adds to the story. Very good. I likey.
Why read this story when I know going into it that I'm not going to enjoy it? It's the completist in me, I guess. I do enjoy Nora Roberts and I have read all of her books. I just find this particular series incredibly self-indulgent as it focuses around Robert's family businesses. I may have enjoyed it more if these were fictitious but not by much I suspect.
I've never been happy with the jargon heavy stories like the Bride Quartet or this series and while I enjoy home improvement shows...watc ...more
The Perfect Hope finds us back in Boonsboro, Maryland and engaged in the in life (and romantic entanglements) of the final Montgomery brother, Ryder, and the sophisticated innkeeper, Hope. Ryder is a rough and tumble construction worker who is slightly annoyed by the Perfect Hop ...more
1. Hope - the Inn Keeper, Mrs. Adorable ♥
2. Ryder - the Carpenter, Mr. Man
Hope and Ryder have been fighting since she arrived to be keeper of the family's newly built inn. An old friend of Avery and Claire, she fits right in with everyone....exxxxxcept Ryder. Why? He's not very good with women. NOT!! But once they get together -- thanks to the help of a friendly ghost [Lizzie, not Casper] -- these two explode in such a good way...
And a good way...
And a good way.. ...more

I loved the whole ghost story thing and the conclusion to it. But I also loved how it was interwined with Ryders and Hopes story.
Ryder and Hope were wonderful the chemistry was awesome and I totally enjoyed reading about them.
The book left me with this wonderful cozy feeling!
Despite that, I've generally enjoyed her trilogies. Chesapeake Bay and the Key trilogies are some of my favorites. The Bride quartet was also really good, and I had high hopes for the Inn Boonsboro series, but it just fell flat.
The Perfect Hope suffered from some of the same nonsense as The Last Boyfriend. T ...more
I was always kinda 'meh' on Lizzie the Ghost, but I actually liked her in The Perfect Hope. As the reader learns more about Lizzie's love story and the u ...more
The Perfect Hope is the final installment of the Inn Boonsboro trilogy. The trilogy revolves around the Montgomerys: Beckett, Owen and Ryder. In the first and second book, Beckett and Owen are hooked up with the loves of their lives... so you can guess whose turn it is now!!
Ryder is surly. Period. Done. He's a man's man or a manly man. He doesn't speak a l ...more
In the last book of the Inns Boonsboro trilogy, America’s favorite author, Nora Roberts gifts readers with a sweet, sensual story of love and family.
Innkeeper, Hope Beaumont has found a new home at Inns Boonsboro where the staff has been more than accommodating, the community has been friendly and the owners - well, one brother in particular – has been surly. But that doesn’t stop Hope from enjoying her time here.
As she continues to excel at their job, she comes face-to ...more
Ryder is a man of very few words and emotions. To-the-point and no nonsense - he gets around but has never been in love or set on one woman. Until the beautiful, OCD, perfectionist & city girl, Hope, entered the town and took over the Inn. Once he saw her, he was smitten and no ...more
I have to be honest -- of the three books in the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy, this was the one I thought I would like the least. Because Hope and Ryder had already been introduced through the first two books (which I would definitely recommend be read in order), there wasn't the same kind of lead up to the romance that there had been for the first two couples. And although I was drawn in just as I tend to be with most of the Nora Roberts books, I wasn't quite invested in the pairin ...more
This is the ...more
think it is the best out of the three books. Not only is there a touching love story between Hope and Ryder, we get to finally find out who the ghost of the inn is and why she is haunting the place. One thing I loved about this trilogy was the banter and obvious affection between the brothers and their families. There are quite a few laugh out loud moments.
Ryder and Hope are such opposites that they really compliment each other. R ...more
Once more the descriptions of the Inn and the construction on MacT's drew me in and made me want to go visit the place. Clare and Beckett are still madly in love and awaiting the birth of their baby. Avery and Owen are planning their wedding ...more
