Adult Review: The Next Always
The architect and eldest brother Beckett Montgomery lives and breathes work. He's a work-a-holic but treasures the time he has stopping to the town bookstore. Beckett's always happy to see Claire - the one that got away in high school.
She's now a widow with three young boys. She tries to manage everything on her own, but as Beckett comes to her rescue a few times she gradually begins to open up and allow herself to relax.
Could there be a new addition to the Montgomery family?
My Thoughts: The first book in a new trilogy was charming. I loved the descriptions of the inn - from the building to the decorating. I loved the moments in the bookstore. I loved Beckett hanging out with the boys and their conversations. I liked the idea of the ghost in the inn, I thought that was an interesting touch. I hated the issues Claire had to deal with and how scary her life became. I loved the banter between the brothers and their bond. I think this is my first Nora Roberts book and I'm sure it won't be my last. I'm anxiously awaiting book 2 - The Last Boyfriend coming out in May.
Cover Thoughts: Cute
