Mediocre at best

Definitely not one of Nora Roberts' better reads. Story is rather dull and difficult to get interested in. It had the potential to be a good book, but just didn't make it.

The ending was a bit of surprise

This is designed for a "young" girl as the audience. I would not suggest it.

Old Time N.R. Classic

Would you consider the audio edition of Partners to be better than the print version?

Tanya brings classic to life

Who was your favorite character and why?

our heroine as she does not give up on Lewis

Have you listened to any of Tanya Eby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have come to enjoy her since finding out her A.K.A name Tatiana Sokolov which I have many reads

a good read

loved it. It moved along just right with just the right amount of suspense. Almost too short.

Enjoyable Easy Read

A fun mystery. Not an award winning novel, but great for an enjoyable entertaining read.

Simple Nora Roberts Novel

Any additional comments?

The story itself wasn't bad. I was able to figure out the ending nearly halfway through the book. My only complaint would be how fast everything happened with Laurel and Matthew. One minute they dislike each other. The next, he kisses her. Then they have 4 drinks and kiss. The next day, she loses her virginity. The next day, their engaged. I understand that during the year prior, Matthew had feelings for her and showed it by constantly picking on her and annoying her, but still, the way their relationship evolved was way too fast.

Dated

Pretty weak story line. Characters had very dated attitudes, not surprising I suppose, as the book was first published in the eighties. Two main protagonists not really likable. It was difficult to know which character you were hearing as the narrator didn't really pause when moving from one person's thoughts or dialogue to another. My first disappointing Nora Roberts book.

Over acted and predictable

I usually love Nora Roberts but this book was awful. Extremely predictable plot with unlikeable characters and the narration was completely over the top. If I could give it 0 stars I would
