Short & sweet – throw in a ghost

The Next Always Nora Roberts

The Next Always….  clearly I didn’t quite get this book as I have no idea why the book is called the next always.  And I’ve spent a day thinking on it.

It was a kindle freebee for the start of the year.  Mostly it was a nice read, a cute and sweet romance.  The main characters are all likeable and the addition of a spooky ghost and a bit of a villain were very welcome – even if the ending was telegraphed very early on.

I would like to find out what happens to the other two brothers and Lizzy, but…

The book’s setting is a supposedly an amazing historical inn that’s being refurbished and refurbished and refurbished.  The endless discussion of the tiles, light fittings, ceiling colour, desk types and kitchen cupboards started to grate (ha! ha!).  But the endless chat about the baths and shower fittings completely did me in….  Enough already – he’s an architect and his family has a building company – I got it the first time.

I’m going to put it down as a mystery read giving me 10 of my 2015 book challenge 52 reads.
