Book Review: "The Perfect Hope" by Nora Roberts
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 tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except apparently Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro… — As the former manager of a D.C.... more » hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be -- except for in her love life. Her only interaction with the opposite sex has been sparring with the infuriating Ryder, who always seems to get under her skin. Still, no one can deny the electricity that crackles between them…a spark that ignited with a New Year’s Eve kiss.
While the Inn is running smoothly, thanks to Hope’s experience and unerring instincts, her big-city past is about to make an unwelcome -- and embarrassing -- appearance. Seeing Hope vulnerable stirs up Ryder’s emotions and makes him realize that while Hope may not be perfect, she just might be perfect for him…
This is the last in the "Innsboro" triology. The first two are: "The Next Always" and "The Last Boyfriend". This book featured Ryder and Hope. You could see from the other two books that this would be the premise of the third book, but still....
I enjoyed this one as well. I loved how all the characters interact with each other - a big family. The chemistry with Hope and Ryder was undeniable starting I believe with the second book. The book was like the other two - I couldn't put it down. The underneath storyline throughout the book of the 'ghost' of the inn was intriguing. I am not into 'paranormal' books, and I didn't consider this storyline that big on the paranormal.
The story was all tied up at the end just like a triology should. I enjoyed the series. I would highly recommend this series.
