"America's favorite writer" ("The New Yorker") begins an all-new trilogy-inspired by the inn she owns and the town she loves. 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...

It's the first time I read one of Nora Roberts books (*gasp* I know..) but I'm really glad I did. It was cute, sweet and refreshing, just what I needed.
Beckett is one of the Montgomery's brothers. He and his brothers are restoring an old inn Booksboro, and it's going to be amazing. The whole town is curious about it, including Clare. I loved Beckett, he's just a regular guy, close to his family and with a big heart, which has been throbbing for Clare since they were teens.
Clare is a young widow, with three kids and a lot of work. She owns a bookstore, and it has been a while since she had some time for herself. But when Beckett starts to enter their lives, she's ready for him.
I usually stay away of widows romance books because I can't relate to them, but in this case I really liked Clare and Beckett's relationship. Clare was very easy to like because she was a real mom and young woman. She took care of her kids but knew when she could use some time for herself. Beckett was so in love with her, it's obvious they had to be together, and I'm glad they realized that soon. Their romance was sweet, just what they needed. Also, the kids were so cute!
I loved the writing, I think the characters were very realistic. I felt like I was with them inside the story and their thought were exactly the same I'd had in my mind. But, I think the whole stalker thing/ghost were not necessary.
Overall, I'm glad I finally read Nora Roberts. The Inn BoomsBoro trilogy is definitely on my to be read shelf, I really enjoyed The Next Always and I can't wait to read what will happen with the rest of the Montgomery's brothers.
Praise for "The Next Always" "Paints a charming picture of small-town life."--"Publishers Weekly" "Touching, funny, sweetly sexy, slightly paranormal, and just plain satisfying."--"Library Journal" "Leaves you celebrating love with a warm [and] cozy touch."--"USA Today"
