My 2 cents:
History and romance buffs alike will swoon over Nora Roberts' newest novel The Perfect Hope. Set in real-life historic Boonsboro, Maryland, The Perfect Hope is the third book in the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy. Filled with the camaraderie of the Montgomery brothers; together with their mother, Justine, the three brothers proudly own and operate a booming construction business.
Beckett Montgomery is married to his high-school sweetheart, Claire, who has three young sons and is expecting two more. Owen Montgomery is engaged to red-haired fireball Avery McTavish, who runs Vesta Pizza and dreams of opening her own upscale restaurant and bar in the town square. Ryder Montgomery, a diamond in the rough, falls hard for Hope Beaumont, the bed-and-breakfast's innkeeper.
Also keeping company at the Inn is Lizzie, a ghost from Civil War times, who is waiting faithfully for her soldier lover, Billy Ryder. Lizzey likes to play with the doors and the lights at Inn Boonsboro, and becomes intertwined in the Montgomery brothers' stories, even as she eventually reveals her own.
The Battle of Antietam, the single bloodiest day in the entire Civil War, plays a pivotal role in this modern-day story. Romance fans will enjoy the intimate love scenes and happy endings. All fans of NY Times Bestselling Author Nora Roberts will enjoy the playful, humorous dialogue. (And will probably make you want to go back and read the first two novels in the Inn Boonsboro series, if you haven't already).
