Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2012-04-13)

Friends from when five-year-old Avery MacTavish claimed Owen Montgomery as her first boyfriend (complete with first kiss and pink plastic engagement ring), the two now enjoy a casual, sibling like relationship-until Inn BoonsBoro's resident ghost, Lizzy, takes matters into her own hands and literally throws them together. But energetic, risk-taking restaurateur Avery and super organized construction company manager Owen aren't sure they want their lives turned upside down. Though the entire Montgomery clan knows the couple are oh-so-right for each other, it takes the independent, marriage-wary pair a while to figure out that sometimes a first relationship can also be the last.

Verdict: Lively, funny, and rife with wonderfully complex family dynamics and characters you can't help but love, this heartwarming story brings another couple together and the inn's renovation closer to completion while revealing a bit more about the inn's romantic, unquiet ghost. Note: Although each book in the trilogy stands on its own, because of the ongoing ghostly mystery, fans will want to read them in order, beginning with The Next Always; The Perfect Hope is due in November. Roberts (The Witness) lives in Keedysville, MD, a stone's throw from the Civil War town of Boonsboro and the historic Inn BoonsBoro.

Book description

A new novel of a shared past, a fresh start, and a lifetime of love.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts introduces you to the Montgomery brothers--Beckett, Ryder, and Owen--as they bring an intimate bed-and-breakfast to life in their hometown.
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 right on schedule.

The only thing Owen didn't plan for was Avery McTavish...

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...
