A Vermont Bed & Breakfast Inn
From This Day, by Nora Roberts

★★½☆☆ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Therese Plummer does a first-rate job on the narration for this one, but she’s fighting an uphill battle. I’ve taken too many Mandatory Workplace Sexual Harassment classes for this one to come anywhere near conceivable, making it too dated. I could certainly see sentences that show-cased the brilliance of Nora Roberts, but others that were painful to listen to and cringe-worthy. Basically the characters were too bipolar for my current tastes. I’m not even sure I would have liked this one way back in 1983. (O.M.G.! That is almost 30 years ago. **sigh**)

Erika It was funny, Lisa :)

Lisa Kay Yes, Erika, on some level it was quite funny. ☺

Erika LOL! the review, nicely said :)

Lisa Kay Thanks, Erika. ☺

Totalmentalcase What when through my head as I read was sexual harassment when he refused to let her leave. Followed by stockholm syndrome when the heroine fell in love with her tormentor. And finally ending with pedophilia when he comments that she looks like a child. One that he is clearly intent on ravishing. I found this book to be repulsive and I would never recommend it to others!
