From the Back Cover
Nora Roberts - the World's Greatest Storyteller
The historic hotel in BoonsBoro has endured war and peace, changing hands, even rumoured hauntings. Now it's getting a major facelift from the Montgomery brothers.
As the architect of the family, Beckett Montgomery'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.
After losing her husband, Clare Brewster has returned home with her three young sons to run the town's bookstore. Clare finds herself drawn across the street by Beckett's transformation of the old inn, wanting to take a closer look . . . at the building and the man behind it. These stolen moments are the beginning of something new - and open the door to the extraordinary adventure of what comes next . . .

It is populated with some interesting characters, but all in all, I was relieved to reach the end of the story.
I'm so sorry that I can give only two stars for this, but I know that Nora Roberts has a wide fan base and many do enjoy her stories.
I always try to find something about a book I like too, and I suppose this was cosy, middle town America that we all know and love, but that's it.
Unrealistic, 2 dimensional people, endless DIY information. Perhaps somewhere after the pages and pages of boring details there was a plot, maybe a bit of adventure, but sadly I had to concede and bin this.
Now I hear this is an actual hotel, so it all seems like a cynical way to plug that. I should have realised.
Montgomery family contractors are restoring the two hundred year old BooksBoro Inn and turning it into a high class B & B. Under their mother's vision, her three sons make a great working team. The small town has a great community and everyone is keen for the day of the big reveal.
This book is about Beckett, he's the architect and has designed the refurb. His one distraction is his school crush Clare Murphy Brewster. Clare returned to BoobsBoro with her three sons, after her husband was killed, she now runs the town bookstore. Back among friends and family, in time, she allows her new feelings for Beckett to grow.
With the Inn rebuild moving forward the need for a manager rises; Clare and Avery are delighted when one of their friends returns to take the job. I really liked all the details about the construction of the Inn, I could picture the rooms as the team worked on them daily. The addition of a ghost was a delight, I enjoyed her quirky ways and her ability to be unselfish when danger threatened.
Fans of Nora Robert's romances should be very happy with the start to this series.
I don't often pick up romance novels so I believe that The Next Always is the first Nora Roberts novel I've read. It's certainly the first in a very long time and likely to be the last too. I was disappointed at just how bland and formulaic the story was. Essentially just a long advertisement for the Boonsboro Inn - is Roberts an owner? - most of the book is taken up with lists of the luxurious furniture and fittings. We also meet a perfectly nice widow, Clare, who has nice children and falls in love with the nice man, Beckett, doing up the Inn. Surrounded by their nice friends and community, they overcome minor perils and, presumably, go on to live happily ever after as a Family.
Based on this one novel, I have no idea how Roberts sells so many thousands of books. I have read far more inventive fare from relatively unknown indie authors who could seriously benefit from 1% of her publicity, yet are ignored in favour of this drivel. Yawn.
