I might as well just admit that I have become a Nora Roberts junkie I can t seem to make myself stop It s like crack or in my case chocolate.I guess there are worse addictions Look at how stupid the bird guy looks To like this book, you have to really really like remodeling renovation shows And, be willing to read all about it, instead of seeing it It takes vision to read all about the furniture, flooring, fixtures, and paint colors of a room that is being built And, maybe a little patience Luck [...]
I have never been so disappointed in a Nora Roberts book It felt like she basically phoned this one in There was no romance, no plot, no storyline basically It was a bland account of how to build an inn in a small town, with a few interactions between a man and a woman with three kids Blah Oh, and then there was the supposed bad guy tossed in the mix, I guess to try and create some tension in the story I m not sure what the point was, really This is definitely one of those books I wish I hadn t [...]
I absolutely loved this book I will admit, I m biased My review is slanted to my love of beautiful packaging and this book is beautifully presented in this pretty cover I m also biased because I m from MD and I have had the opportunity to visit Boonsboro, and the Inn this book is based on.To the book, I absolutely enjoyed the story of Beckett and Clare rediscovering each other as than friends and finding love The banter between grown brothers Beckett, Owen and Ryder was also such a cute and cle [...]
After her last series, The Bride Quartet, I had high hopes that Nora Roberts had found her voice again However, with the first book in her new The Inn BoonsBoro trilogy, I can sadly say that is not that the case.I found the three Montgomery boys to be typical Nora Roberts male leads and the three females also seemed to fit the typical mold for a Roberts trilogy Now, don t get me wrong, as a long time romance novel reader, I understand that there are really only a handful of character types that [...]
3.5 stars Fairy tales, she mused She d always been a sucker for them And for a happy ending where everything wrapped up as pretty as a bow in a little girl s hair Clare It s nice Being close to you without pretending I m not trying to be close to you Beckett Montgomery People or dogs, I d say it s about how you re raised than bloodlines Beckett Montgomery
Ah, it was nice to drop back into a world created by Nora Roberts She has a gift with character creation and storytelling, and this book was no exception Usually in Romance we find that it s the heroine that has had a secret crush on the hero for quite a while The author decided to flip the standard here and cast the hero as the one with the secret crush Beckett has been in love with Clare since high school He s a self assured guy who has never had a problem with the ladies unless that lady is C [...]
Infelizmente s dou 3 estrelas porque achei que era mais do mesmo dentro do estilo dos livros da Nora previs vel e achei que o casal n o funcionou bem para mim E a Nora continua com a mania de p r toda a gente noiva quando o espa o temporal do livro s o de poucas semanas ou poucos meses e as rela es t m t o pouco tempo um pouco irreal O Beckett n o se revelou uma personagem t o f cil de gostar como eu achava Sinceramente at achei o muito p ozinho sem sal, n o senti aquela chama que senti com outr [...]
3.5 Stars DListened to the audio version of this story It had a male narrator, which I LOVED and I believe the whole trilogy is like that, so I m really excited Clare is a widow with three boys, owner of the local bookstore and the secret or not so secret crush of Beckett Montgomery since they were in high school It was adorable, the way that Beckett just silently loved Clare from afar He was insecure only when it came to her in all other ways, he was a tough, no nonsense architect with enough c [...]
Okay, I love Nora Roberts I usually buy her new stuff right away This one I held off on for a long time Mainly because the Inn she is writing about she owns.The positives in this story I like the brothers They are funny, snarky and pretty much just like all of the brothers she writes about.The growing relationship between the two MC was sweet and believable.The kids Those three kids were adorable.The growing relationship between the kids and Beckett was also sweet.The negatives It read like a br [...]
Reviewed 05 11 12 So, I just got the latest in the series The Last Boyfriend in the mail the other day I was about to jump right in and thought I d re read my review from this book to sorta catch myself up, and saw it was a very brief and sorely lacking of detail Of course, I had just got it on audio as well, and decided to listen to it this time and not only write a slightly better review, but also refresh myself with the characters.I kinda wish I had just re read the book This audio version is [...]
I loved this Beckett and Clare were as sweet as apple pie A good read Can t wait to read the next.
I would feel bad about this if I wasn t prepared for this exact outcome I was initially going to read this trilogy along with a friend who bought all three books She s also the friend who always prods me to keep reading the In Death series that Roberts writes under JD Robb as well I was worried this book would not work for me it didn t but since I do love reading HGTV Magazine and other magazines dealing with decorating I didn t think it would be too bad I was wrong.I had to stop reading at the [...]
This was terrificIt has the same feel as her Bride Quartet with this trilogy focusing on a family of men.I loved the humor and the interactions between Beckett and his brothers I liked Clare as a strong, independent woman who doesn t really NEED a man The inn sounds wonderful and I m really enjoying watching it unfold The ghost was certainly interesting, Ms Roberts has added varying levels of the supernatural in many of her trilogies I m completely ok with the scent of honeysuckle and the doors [...]
3 5 Me ha gustado bastante, se lee en un plis y deja con ganas de seguir leyendo para conocer las historias de las otras parejas y para saber m s sobre el misterio del hotel
Maybe like a 2.5 rating Nice solid Meh So this was my first Nora Roberts book I ve avoided her in general because I d gotten the impression that she was a romance writer as in verging on erotica romance So why this book It was the cover Seriously I feel very lame admitting that, but the cover looked like somewhere I wanted to go Yeah, yeah don t judge a book by that I know.Well, it was not as bad as I d thought, content wise I ve read much smuttier sex scenes in non romance novels Roberts seems [...]
This is another book where I really, really wish we had half stars I don t want to give it a three, but it doesn t reach four either Sigh.Overall, this was a cute story I liked all of the characters a lot Even the kids, though they were written like real children, unlike most romance novels where they re like fantasy children and unbelievably sweet and unobtrusive They didn t just magically disappear and they whined, but they were also cute In my review of the last Nora Roberts book I read I com [...]
I read this book because I d hoped to review it for my local library s blog but I guess I feel like I have to recommend books on that blog, and this isn t a book I d recommend, even to the avid Nora Roberts fan.The premise of this book starts out as pretty typical Nora Roberts Woman returns home as a widow with three boys in tow She gets reacquainted with an old high school friend who has had a romantic interest with her for many years but wasn t able to show it because he was friends with her h [...]
Sinceramente, quando acabei n o sabia bem que dizer Dou as 4 estrelas por lembrar me dos filhos de Clare, gostei muito das cenas com eles, eram um mimo h uma certa noite de homens em que Beckett entrou tamb m que fica na mem ria e, bolas, merece as 4 estrelas, sim senhor LOLDe resto, gostei, mas n o delirei os personagens n o foram assim t o impressionantes como j aconteceu com muitos e muitos livros de Nora Roberts Os irm o Montgomery s o bons, sim, gostei da intera o f cil e descontra da entre [...]
Review of audiobook This was well narrated by MacLeod Andrews Some people might not like his falsetto voice for the female characters, but I got used to him This first one in the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy putters along at a leisurely pace, but that was fine with me Still, it ends with a bit of an adrenalin rush Getting to know the residents of this small Maryland town was pleasant and the romance between Beckett and Clare was sweet I ll definitely listen to the next one, if only to find out what hap [...]

I am normally a huge fan of Nora Robert s work I admit that I was sincerely disappointed with this book My feelings of ambivalence started with the Bride quarter and are now confirmed with this book Every business reference in this novel is in fact owned by Nora or her family They re real businesses in the town of Boonsboro, they all have web sites and are all exactly as portrayed in the book I felt like the character s were people we ve already seen in several previous novels Even some of the s [...]
3 to 3.5 I can t quite decide if I ve read too much NR, or if NR has started to lose her touch While I certainly enjoyed this book, I can t help but be disappointed at that same time The characters and even some of the story line were so obviously recycled from previous stories The characters were carbon copies of some from her In the Garden series and her Brides series I think even some of the conversations were taken directly from those books This is something no NR fan would miss either.Howev [...]

3.5 STARSI enjoyed this one and it would have easily been 4 STARS, but the ending felt too rushed The boys were so adorable, and I love how the town was incorporated into the story I can t wait to read Ryder s book either he really intrigued me.
It was the very first book I read from Nora Roberts, and I liked it a lot A nice sweet romance
I haven t read a Nora Roberts book in forever I used to read her all the time, I have every book on her backlist tucked away Then I added a few and then quite a bit than a few authors to my ever growing list, and then I started reviewing books, so a few of my favorites got pushed to the background So I was doubly excited when I received The Next Always to review Nora Roberts is the perfect comfort read Reading her stories is like coming home after being gone a very long time It s so nice to be [...]
Primer libro de la trilog a Hotel Boonsboro de una de las grandes reinas del g nero de romance.Hace poco me lo regalaron y creo que estaba destinado a ser una de mis lecturas del verano.Terminado en un suspiro, este libro ha sido todo lo que esperaba dulce, bonito, rom ntico y ligero Una lectura 100% recomendable para las amantes del g nero.No te esperes la novela del siglo, simplemente, si ntate, brelo y disfruta.La trama es bonita, ver que tanto el hotel como la relaci n entre los protagonista [...]
