really liked it

Classic Nora Roberts- good characters, great setting, involving storyline and plot. A great read about a trio of brothers and their mother, who have bought a historic building in their town with the goal of renovating it and turning it into an inn. As an added bonus the inn has a friendly ghost. A great read and everything you've come to expect from Ms. Roberts.

My one complaint about this book is that it seems like Ms. Roberts has gone a bit overboard trying to make the novel contemporary by listing popular music, trends, electronic devices, etc. that will date the book in 2-5 years. I didn’t find these elements crucial to the storyline at all, and in some places, these details almost detracted from the story and appeared as if Ms. Roberts was trying too hard to make the story appear “trendy.” The elimination of these things would have gone a long way towards keeping the story more classic and timeless.

A good read nonetheless, and I look forward to the next two in the series!
