Book Discussion Questions

I have enjoyed reading everyone's comments about Nora Roberts! I hope you are enjoying the book The Next Always.

I would love to hear what you think about:

  • Typically in romance fiction, it is the female lead character that is secretly in love with the lead male character. Did you like the twist in that it was the male lead (Beckett) that was chasing the female lead (Clare)? Why or why not?
  • Do you think the book accurately portrayed the trials of being a single parent and dating?
