Summary

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts come a classic tale about finding the man of your dreams right under your nose.

Ex-model Zoe Fleming is now a hardworking single mom - and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Though she would like a tenant to share household expenses. What she gets is confirmed bachelor J. Cooper McKinnon. Coop quickly befriends her son and in no time has the reluctant Zoe charmed, too. But she has zero room in her life for a man! Either this was a recipe for disaster or the best mistake she’s ever made.

Too short and typical

What did you like best about The Best Mistake? What did you like least?

I love Nora, but this was more like a generic love story, very short and predictable. Fun for a quick trip, but not a keeper after you hear it once.

Expected more

This is definitely not one of Nora Roberts’ best. Character and plot development is light, perhaps partially due the short length but I’ve listened to other books with similar length and found them much more engaging. There’s nothing wrong with the story, there’s just not much too it. The best I can say is the narration is good.

is this an abridged story?

For the first time ever I shall be returning a Nora Roberts book. I love her stories as they have well rounded characters with human flaws, the story line has a good flow, not with this one. . it felt like there were crucial parts of the story skipped or removed in the name of limited time, feel saddened.
