This is book 3 of 3 in the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy by Nora Roberts.
I start this from the very first book in this trilogy and this book was a great ending to an overall wonderful tale. You must definitely read them all in order to enjoy, because you will be lost otherwise.
In this we get Hope, hence the name of the book, and Rider's story, plus the conclusion to Lizzie and Billy's story(which ran throughout the entire series). Yes, the rest of the gang was there, but this is mainly about the two mentioned first.
Anyway, from the moments these two meet you know that there is going to be something between them. Of course neither wants to acknowledge it, so they just try to remain distantly civilized with one another. This is a hard thing to maintain since Hope is the innkeeper in an establishment owned by Rider's mother, Justine. Add to that love is in the air, what with one of his brothers married, with babies on the way, and the other engaged to be married(to Hope's friends no less) it hard not to finally give in to what they both feel.
This being a romance we already know that is going to happen, no surprise, but it is the way they get there that makes the story.
Nora Roberts is fantastic at this type of story. She catches you with the first story, and keeps you enthralled to the very end. You fall in love with the characters and then you just have to see what the final outcome is going to be for all included. Heck in this case you will fall in love with the inn, the town, Vesta, Turn the Page, just everything that she gives description to. It is all described in such a way as to make you wish you were there to see it and experience it all for yourself.
