Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Really, would it kill Ryder Montgomery to at least be polite to Hope Beaumont in public? After all, Hope is in charge of the Montgomerys’ Inn BoonsBoro, and Ryder is constantly underfoot while working on some new Montgomery construction project, so they need to find some way to maintain a professional working relationship. Yet whenever Hope and Ryder cross paths, the best she can expect from him is a kind of surly sexiness. But when Hope’s romantic past in the form of her old lying, cheating boyfriend, Jonathan Wickham, comes to BoonsBoro with an offer he believes Hope can’t refuse, Ryder proves to be an unexpected ally. Now Hope finds herself reassessing Ryder in a new and quite possibly romantic light. With her customary literary skill, Roberts wraps up her latest emotionally engaging, exceptionally entertaining contemporary trilogy by not only matching up the last Montgomery brother with his perfect romantic counterpart but also resolving the mystery of Eliza Ford, the ghost haunting the inn. --John Charles

Nora Roberts books just keep getting more and more formulaic. I have already given up on her "In Death" series because the last few have bored me to tears. There is no spark in them anymore.

Despite that, I've generally enjoyed her trilogies. Chesapeake Bay and the Key trilogies are some of my favorites. The Bride quartet was also really good, and I had high hopes for the Inn Boonsboro series, but it just fell flat.

The Perfect Hope suffered from some of the same nonsense as The Last Boyfriend. The characters spend a lot of time talking and very little time doing anything. Hope and Ryder (the couple of this book) have a small kiss. We then have to slog through pages upon pages of Hope talking to Clare and Avery about it. Then Avery and Clare talking about it without Hope. Then Hope talking about it with Ryder's mother. Then Ryder talking about it with his brothers. Then the brothers talking about it without Ryder. None of these conversations was THAT important. Did we really every single character's opinion on a kiss between two unattached adults?

In The Perfect Hope, Roberts also continues her new trend of having her characters schedule sex. I'm sorry, but this is NOT sexy or romantic at all. Hope and Ryder admit to each other that they want to have sex, so they decide to schedule it for the following Tuesday. Avery and Owen did this in The Last Boyfriend as well. It's not funny, or sexy, or interesting at all.

Considering Roberts' publisher also charges $10 an ebook (sometimes closer to $15), I think I will be stopping here with her novels. There are so many other books out there that I can't continue wasting my time and money on stuff that just isn't magical anymore

I enjoyed this trilogy and The Perfect Hope was no exception...However...I can understand the frustration voiced by other reviewers and the book was not quite as good as I had hoped it would be.

This final offering in the Boonsboro Trilogy wraps things up with the blossoming relationship between the oldest Montgomery brother, Ryder and the sophisticated and beautiful innkeeper, Hope. We have gotten to know these two already from the previous two books and know that Ryder can be rude, abrupt and a very "Me Tarzan - You Jane" type of guy. Nora is great with her brother relationships and it's usually pretty easy to break it down, one is sweet (Beckett), one is smart and the calming influence (Owen) and one is the classic type A male, ready to hit first and ask questions later. This combination helps define the relationships but in Ryder's case, you hope there's more than meets the eye under that rough exterior. Hope is Ryder's complete opposite in most every way except they are both loyal to friends and family and both easy on the eyes. Since Hope is best friends with the women who are married and engaged to Ryder's brothers (Clare and Avery), it was a foregone conclusion that they would end up together and they do, but it just wasn't as exciting a ride as I hoped it would be.

Nora inserts all our favorite characters from books one and two, like the Montgomery boys' mother and her boyfriend, Clare's cute and rascally sons, Harry, Liam and Murphy (who in my opinion add so much to the story) and the still mysterious ghost Lizzy that occupies the inn. This time around, Lizzy has some fun encounters with the guests at the inn and does her best to nudge Ryder and Hope in the right direction, all the while still waiting for her long lost love Billy to appear.

This was not an action book. This was not a real romantic romance. This was not paranormal. This was not suspense. This was not a thriller. I'm a little stumped as to what this book was.

This was a book where a lot of people did stuff- constantly. They talked. They drove to a construction site. They looked around a construction site. They had meetings. A lot of meetings. They went to the bakery for donuts or sticky buns. They demolished walls and roofs. They texted. They telephoned. They talked to several people on the telephone. They made cool beverages several times. They complained about tile work. They made notes on their cell phone to transfer to their email. They talked about a slate-y blue color. They marinated flank steaks or chicken. They whisked salad dressing. They ran up the stairs and down the stairs changing light bulbs. They fetched cocktail olives. They talked to people about pizza. They went to get a fresh bottle of wine. They were receiving, ordering, carrying, weeding, or checking on flower deliveries. They constantly gave their dogs treats. A lot of dogs ran around. Breakfast was made at least three times. Someone made potato salad twice. They talked and talked and talked (oh, except for the Hero- a most taciturn fellow). They had internal monologues. I could keep going.... and going and going and going. This may have been the most minutely detailed book where people just ran around doing things that were not remotely connected to the actual story. It was sooooo boring. All that stuff. At first, I thought okay- it is an easy read and it paints a nice picture. Then, when I realized at least a full quarter of the book is people doing stuff that is completely unconnected to the actual plot, I felt pretty cheated. What a bunch of fluffy filler.
