A wonderful story to draw the Inn Boonsboro series to a satisfying conclusion though I wouldn't mind revisiting Boonsboro at some point. I've liked Ryder throughout the series and Hope really was "perfect" and though the antagonism was there between them, I wasn't sure how a relationship would work but as usual Ms. Roberts pulled it off beautifully. It just wouldn't have fit if they had proceeded any other way. It wasn't quite friends with benefits because let's face it, they weren't friends at all. I really liked the camaraderie between family and friends. Since I don't really have that in my family, it's great to experience it vicariously.
