Roberts always delivers a romance that is worth checking out! ~ Under the Covers

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-face with Ryder Montgomery, the brother she kissed once at New Year’s. Their chemistry cannot be ignored because as much as Ryder and Hope try to pretend like nothing is happening, everyone else knows that it is only a matter of time before they realize it themselves.

THE PERFECT HOPE was a little slow at times. The plot really centered around Hope and Ryder and the development of their relationship. I noticed that there is a ton of dialogue in this book and hardly any descriptions. This, for me, is good in that you definitely get a feel of the characters and you feel like you know them personally. But at the same time, I missed the feeling of being in the inn, with its lavish descriptions and such.

The ghost, Lizzy had both good and bad times for me as well. At times I thought it was sweet that she was trying to protect and bring together Hope and Ryder, but also at the same time, it was a little freaky, especially when she started communicating.

All in all, it wasn’t my favorite of the series, but you cannot deny the fact that Roberts always delivers a romance that is worth checking out!

About Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, the youngest of five children. After a school career that included some time in Catholic school and the discipline of nuns, she married young and settled in Keedysville, Maryland.

She worked briefly as a legal secretary. “I could type fast but couldn’t spell, I was the worst legal secretary ever,” she says now. After her sons were born she stayed home and tried every craft that came along. A blizzard in February 1979 forced her hand to try another creative outlet. She was snowed in with a three and six year old with no kindergarten respite in sight and a dwindling supply of chocolate.

Born into a family of readers, Nora had never known a time that she wasn’t reading or making up stories. During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write down one of those stories. It was there that a career was born. Several manuscripts and rejections later, her first book, Irish Thoroughbred, was published by Silhouette in 1981.

Nora met her second husband, Bruce Wilder, when she hired him to build bookshelves. They were married in July 1985. Since that time, they’ve expanded their home, traveled the world and opened a bookstore together.

Through the years, Nora has always been surrounded by men. Not only was she the youngest in her family, but she was also the only girl. She has raised two sons. Having spent her life surrounded by men, Ms. Roberts has a fairly good view of the workings of the male mind, which is a constant delight to her readers. It was, she’s been quoted as saying, a choice between figuring men out or running away screaming.

Nora is a member of several writers groups and has won countless awards from her colleagues and the publishing industry. Recently The New Yorker called her “America’s favorite novelist.”

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Thanks for the review! I was actually the opposite. Liked this one the best out of all 3 but this wasn’t my favorite trilogy. Too much Inn Building!

I’m sad to see this series finished. I really enjoyed the first two books in the series, but haven’t read this one yet. Hope to soon. Thanks for the review.

I haven’t read this triology by Nora Roberts–and it sounds really good. I have been a long time fan of Roberts books, especially her trilogies. My fave has been her sisters in Ireland–what a wonderfully, talented, writer for sweet romance.
