What The Next Always is about:
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.
Whenever I'm in the mood for a good book that has a mixture of fun, great location, dream jobs, dreamy men, women who actually like each other, and lots of romance I usually turn to Nora Roberts. I know there are some of you out there that wouldn't be caught dead with a "silly romance" book in your hands and I'm cool with that...but as for me, I say bring them on!! This book was everything I was hoping for and more. The more comes into play because of course this book was just the first one in a trilogy. I loved the whole idea of renovating a run down historic hotel and turning it into the place of your dreams. And Beckett was just one of those male characters that I couldn't resist. And his love interest Clare- well can I just say that I loved her character so much. Robert's creates women who I would want to be friends with IRL and this was the case with Clare. How could I resist a devoted mom who just lost her first love to the war and is trying to make her bookstore a success? I also fell in love with the town and people of Boonsboro. I go into these books knowing that there will be a HEA and everything will be wrapped up nice and neat with a bow on top. That's probably why I enjoy them so much because they're easy to read and I almost always finish with a smile on my face!
Recommend? Sure do! I can't wait to find the time to get to book two!!!
