The Last Boyfriend

The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Some of Ms. Roberts' series have what I call "bridge" books, and unfortunately, to me, that's what this book was.

Avery MacTavish is the owner of Vesta pizzeria in Boonsboro, MD. Since their families were so close, she's always palled around with the Montgomery boys, and while she at one time had a crush on Owen, who played along and even "proposed" to her with a gumball machine ring when she was like 6, and as they've gotten older, they've realized that maybe there's something more there.

Tensions are high on both sides as the inn is about to open, and they're looking deeper into what they're feeling for each other. Lizzy, the inn's resident ghost makes an appearance again, and is giving a helping hand in her thoughts on the romance. Will Avery and Owen be able to figure out what they really feel for each other, or will their childhood romance be nothing more than a fond…
