The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in 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 sixteen.
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. Though busy and 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 both the building and the man behind it.
With the grand opening inching closer, Beckett is happy to give Clare a private tour - one room at a time, in between blueprint meetings and kindergarten pickups. It’s no first date, but these stolen moments are the beginning of something that could arouse the secret yearning that resides in Clare’s independent heart - and open the door to the extraordinary adventure of what comes next....

Enjoyed every minute was really sad when it ended
Yes I would. It was a really good story and I was left wanting more. I hope there are going to be sequels where the other friends get a good life too.
I wouldn't compare it to anything. I thought it was quite original in it's story especially a woman with three kids getting a love life!
I enjoyed his reading very much as he brought the characters to life. The choice of narrator is extremely important to a story and I think whoever chose MacLeod Andrews got it spot on with this book.
Widowed, business woman with three kids gets herself a love life....there's hope for the rest of us yet!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and could have listened for a whole lot longer. I really wanted her friends to end up with his brothers too....but, that could be a whole other book!
