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 give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn't plan for was Avery MacTavish....

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....

This was different.  They didn't all of a sudden fall in love.  It was there, just simmering and they decide to take the plunge.  But before they actually do the plunging they take some time to think about it.  It's all very civilized for a romance novel!

It's fun to see all the ins and outs of the Inn & the restaurants & shops.  I'm hoping that the next book will have the opening of the newest restaurant in it.  It's funny how invested I am in the businesses!  I'm curious about Lizzy's story and what will happen with Justine too.

Justine KILLS me!  When she went to box Ry in the ears for being rude to Hope I actually laughed out loud.  More about the brother's reactions than the act itself, but it was probably the first time I've ever actually laughed out loud reading a Nora Roberts book.

So now we're onto Ry & Hope.  Shocker.  Let's see how that one plays out.
