Publisher's Summary

B. J. Clark despised him. As the manager of the Lakeside Inn, she could only feel contempt for Taylor Reynolds, the man who had bought the hotel. His reputation for transforming lovely hotels into modern resorts preceded him.

But when Taylor arrives, B. J.'s loyalties become divided between the hotel and staff and the hot, torrid kisses that she and Taylor share.

Classic Romance!

Where does From This Day rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

This falls right in with my favorites! The humor and sexual tension compliments the characters and just leaves you with a smile on your face.

What other book might you compare From This Day to and why?

Seduction by Design by Sandra Brown read by Jenna Stern

Which character ??? as performed by Therese Plummer ??? was your favorite?

Both main characters are great, but Ms Plummer did such an excellent job with inflections, I loved her voice changes from the southern accent of the cook, to the seductive tones of Taylor Reynolds.

NR fan

I enjoyed most of NR's books, some I consider great love stories. This one didn't have much meat on the bones.

“Me too”!

I kept waiting for BJ to report Taylor for harassment!! The characters were not well developed and the plot was week.
Big disappointment! Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors but this book missed the mark.

nothing romantic about sexual harassment.

huge disappointment from Nora Roberts. The male owner of the hotel repeatedly touches and kisses his manager even when she says no. outdated.

This book must have been written in the 80's

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who doesn't mind sexual harassment as a way to romance.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something newer.

What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She was great, I got lost in her voice until the sexual harassment parts.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from From This Day?

I would have had the heroine quit her job and go somewhere where she was valued as a person.

Any additional comments?

I love Nora Roberts, and this book was written well. I was very disappointed in what I thought was just a light romance.

Too “cheesy”

I thought this book was not up to the standard I have come to enjoy from Nora Roberts and she is one of my favorite authors. If I was not already familiar with her work, I would not have finished the audiobook.
The story line was amateurish and too unbelievable even for a fantasy, take me away read.

How disappointing! What a waste of money and time!

What disappointed you about From This Day?

All they did was argue!!! Shallow plot, story was hard to follow because I kept waiting for them to get to a valid point. The author could have done so much more with this book and made it into something that would have actually been worth reading!

Has From This Day turned you off from other books in this genre?

No...just perhaps this author.

Would you be willing to try another one of Therese Plummer’s performances?

No

What character would you cut from From This Day?

OMG...I'm sorry - the entire thing!!

Any additional comments?

What a waste of time. :(

A little too chauvinistic for my tastes

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, in that I read different authors to learn to write better. No, because I think this author's male character was stuck in an earlier era, at odds with a contemporary plot. Men who treat the girl like that now don't get the girl.

Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

Probably not for awhile. Many of her books are similar.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

This narrator, though pleasant, sometimes over-inflects.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A less obnoxious male protagonist.
