|Summary, etc.:||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. 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... --From publisher marketing.|

Library Journal Review
The Perfect Hope
(c) Copyright Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
Betrayed, emotionally drained, and through with the Washington, DC, lifestyle, Hope Beaumont has sworn off love and found her niche on the slopes of Maryland's Blue Ridge Mountains as the innkeeper for Boonsboro's recently renovated hotel. Surrounded by friends, immersed in her job, and even comfortable with Lizzy, the inn's resident ghost, Hope is content-except for her inexplicable attraction to prickly, macho Ryder Montgomery. But when confrontations with her former fiance and his insolent wife put Hope on edge and Ryder on the move, the action heats up, and the sparks begin to fly. An infusion of local history and a dusting of magic add layers of charm to this engaging contemporary romance that bubbles over with likable characters (family matriarch Justine Montgomery is a standout) and is sure to leave readers smiling. VERDICT With stellar pacing, humorous flair, and unerring insight into what makes families tick, Roberts wraps up another winning trilogy that is a natural for fans of down-home, community-based series. Roberts (The Last Boyfriend) lives in Keedysville, MD. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
Publishers Weekly Review
The Perfect Hope
Ghosts, betrayal, misunderstanding, and jealousy take a hand in this enchanting final installment of the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy by bestselling romance writer Roberts (The Last Boyfriend). Hotelier Hope Beaumont leaves her post at a swanky Washington, D.C., hotel following a humiliating romantic breakup with the owner's son, to reunite with friends in Boonsboro, Md., and become innkeeper of the charming Inn BoonsBoro, owned by the Montgomery family. Hope is warmly welcomed by all except Ryder Montgomery, the gauche yet sexy inn owner's son. Teasing sexual tension develops between cool, urbane Hope and unpolished Ryder, culminating in more than one heated liaison. Hope believes their burning obsession is only filling a carnal need; the reader will have less trouble recognizing the truth. Roberts provides a spectral subplot fraught with sightings and physical contact between the inn's resident lovelorn, meddling ghost, Lizzy, and Hope, Ryder, and one very annoying guest. Incredibly, no one questions the existence of the long-departed honeysuckle-scented Lizzy, who is desperately searching for her deceased beau, Billy, a Civil War soldier. Although Roberts sets a slow pace, presumably to mirror life in a small town, she doesn't disappoint when all the loose ends come together at the end. (Nov.) Â© Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
