Book Description

Nov. 1 2011

"America's favorite writer" (The New Yorker) begins an all-new trilogy-inspired by the inn she owns and the town she loves.

The historic hotel in BoonsBoro, Maryland, has endured war and peace, changing hands, even rumored hauntings. Now it's getting a major facelift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect of the family, Beckett's social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there's another project he's got his eye on: the girl he's been waiting to kiss since he was fifteen...

3.0 out of 5 stars Must like Nora Roberts! Nov. 12 2011
By Lotusland Lady TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book for Nora Roberts fans of which there are millions. I am one of them, although I have my favourites and others I likely will never read again. The Next Always fits into the second category. It is the first of a trilogy, of course. Did Nora Roberts invent that form of marketing? She certainly plumbs it regularly. The main male characters of the series are three brothers, naturally, and there is no secret their love interests are three best friends (BFFs.) Standard stuff. The three men are all regular, blue collar kind of guys, the sort of 21st century heros I imagine we are supposed to find familiar. As a 20th century reader with a taste for the more romantic hero I found them a little crass but they are all tall, lean but muscular, with protection of the innocent and their womenfolk firmly imprinted in their DNA.
Their trash talk tends to be more scatological and profane than previous NR heros. Lots of brotherly banter regaining their private parts and sex lives goes on while they wield their skill saws and hammers. Actually I found them a little boring and their fascination with action figures and video games would likely keep them out of my fantasy bedroom but the theme "boys and their toys, gotta love 'em" runs through this book and likely will continue through the series.
There is a ghost which is fun, and a marvelous old inn where the guest bedrooms are named after romantic couples from literature (one is the Eve and Roarke Room, a little private advertising from Nora Roberts/J.D.Robb.) I still don't know who Wenzell and Buttercup are but I suspect that is a cultural gap and my own fault.
I was impressed with the detail in the book about construction and renovation. I had to go online to find out what a coffered ceiling is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel the magic in small town inn Feb. 23 2014
Format:Perfect Paperback
I love Nora Roberts' books and this latest one from her does not disappoint!

Clare is a widow that owns a bookstore across from the Inn that the Montgomery brothers are doing a renovation on with the help of their Mom.

Beckett is one of the brothers who has been sweet on Clare since high school. He watched her drive away with her husband and kept his feelings hidden from her. Now, Clare is back with three boys to raise and a business to worry about.

Do they have time for each other? Drawn through chemistry and with the help of the Inn's ghost this romance is sweet and full of small town quirks. These two see survive a dangerous moment with an obsessive client and come through committed to each other. Clare's sons are the comedic relief in a world that Clare and Beckett build a foundation in.

Great book! Great heartwarming read!

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing Nov. 23 2011
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was extremely disappointed in this book. This is simply a slightly altered version of her previous book "The Return of Rafe MacKade" copyright 1995. Instead of The MacKade Inn at Antietam, we now have Inn Boonsboro, instead of 4 brothers, we now have three. Rafe owned his own construction company, Beckett is an architect. In the first book, the heroine runs an antique store, this time it's a book shop. Both are threatened in a vaguely sexual way, blah, blah, blah. The first book had much better writing, more interesting characters, better all around. This architect seems to be more of an interior decorator and all the details are boring. In fact, boring just about sums up the whole book. What a let down.

Nora Roberts is a great writer for Sunday in the sun on the deck! I am sure a cozy chair by the fire would be good too!

These books are so phony, if they weren't so bad you could laugh! It must be nice for one family to own a whole town!

3.0 out of 5 stars excellent advertisement March 12 2013
By Laurie
Format:Perfect Paperback
I have enjoyed reading this series, however it's hard to miss the fact that it is at heart a description of and advertisement for Roberts' own BoonsBoro Inn (and perhaps the real life & family owned bookstore across the street). As such, it is an excellent and attractive advertisement!
