The historic hotel in Boonsboro 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. Beckett is the architect of the family, and his 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.
After losing her husband and returning to her hometown, Clare Brewster soon settles into her life as the mother of three young sons while running the town’s bookstore. Busy, with little time for romance, Clare is drawn across the street by Beckett’s transformation of the old inn, wanting to take a closer look . . . at the building and the man behind it.
With the grand opening inching closer, Beckett’s happy to give Clare a private tour - one room at a time. It’s no first date, but these stolen moments are the beginning of something new - and open the door to the extraordinary adventure of what comes next . . .
Ok so it did take me 3 months, not cos it was bad or anything, but because it was my own book, and then I had 2 review books etc . You get the point. There was always something in the way. And I do not listen much either, if I manage I listen to 15-1 h at work at most. So yes it took some time, but with a good book you can listen one week, have weeks when you do not listen and still feel up to date.
The book is about Beckett and Clare. He had always been in love with her, and she is a widow with 3 kids. Let the romance begin.
But it was also the book about them renovating this old building...that has a ghost. For real. Which was weird. Getting to know his brothers who are getting books and brides of their own (obvi who will end up with who.) The small town. Lovely place by the way.
And then there was Clare and Becket. Both good people. Getting to know each other, getting to know her kids. Falling in love, falling in lust. It was great seeing their romance evolve, and since it took monhs for me to finish, well it felt like it took a long time for them too. Which felt very natural.
I would listen to more by this narrator. A nice pace, nice voices. Good work.
Good book too
