Waiting on Wednesday

The Perfect Hope by Nora Roberts

The Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother are breathing new life into the town of Boonsboro, Maryland, by restoring its historic hotel. And they’re finding their own lives revamped by love. This is Ryder’s story…
Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out — with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except apparently Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro. And though the Inn is running smoothly, thanks to Hope’s experience and unerring instincts, her big-city past is about to make an unwelcome — and embarrassing — appearance. Seeing Hope vulnerable stirs up Ryder’s emotions and makes him realize that while Hope may not be perfect, she just might be perfect for him…

I just finished The Last Boyfriend, book #2 in the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy, and I am quite anxious to get my hands on this one.  It involves the ornery older brother, Ryder, who I LOVE and the sweet, smart, beautiful Hope, who reminds me A LOT of Robert’s heroine, Parker, from the Bridal Quartet series.  There’s a lot of chemistry between these two, and I want to know what’s going on with Hope’s reactions to Ryder.  And I can’t wait to hear more about the ghost at the Inn, Lizzy.

The Good Dream by Donna VanLiere

1950 Tennessee, a time and place that straddles the past and present. Ivorie Walker is considered an old maid by the town (though she’s only in her early thirties) and she takes that label with good humor and a grain of salt. Ever since her parents passed away, she has hidden her loneliness behind a fierce independence and a claim of not needing anyone. But her mother’s death hit her harder than anyone suspects and Ivorie wonders if she will be alone forever.
 
When she realizes that someone has been stealing vegetables from her garden—a feral, dirty-faced boy who disappears into the hills—something about him haunts Ivorie. She can’t imagine what would make him desperate enough to steal and eat from her garden. But what she truly can’t imagine is what the boy faces, each day and night, in the filthy lean-to hut miles up in the hills. Who is he? How did he come to live in the hills? Where did he come from? And, more importantly, can she save him? As Ivorie steps out of her comfort zone to uncover the answers, she unleashes a firestorm in the town—a community that would rather let secrets stay secret.

I don’t usually gravitate towards adult fiction anymore so they really have to stick out to me and this one does just that.  Just from the blurb I can tell this is going to be a great book, something I can relate to on some level and just for kicks I like how the lead’s name ends in an “ie”.  🙂

    I love Nora Roberts! I’m always amazed at how different each of her books manage to be and how unique the characters are. I loved The Circle Series she wrote, as well as Midnight Bayou. There are others I’ve read… but those stick out in my mind!

    Maggie, I’m kind of like you… I don’t read much adult fiction anymore, so it’s gotta be either an author I know is going to deliver or the book has to sound really good. The Good Dream sounds amazing!
