AVAILABLE DIGITALLY FOR THE FIRST TIME Gwen Lacrosse has no reason to doubt that famous novelist and infamous womanizer Luke Powers is taking advantage--romantically--of her mother. His name is mentioned in fawning terms all over her mother's letters to Gwen, which is why she now finds herself jetting from Manhattan to her hometown on the outskirts of New Orleans.

Her Mothers Keeper Reviews

  • Elena

    This book was somewhat an annoying read. The heroine is a presumptious little thing, assuming she can control her mother's life and that she knows better. But that's not even the problem ! The problem (to me!) is when there is a clear miscommunication that the author forcefully pushes until the end of the book, when in reality it would have been resolved in the first 10 minutes of the conversation (i.e. "Hi I am Gwen! You must be my mother's new boyfriend! Oh you are not?" The End!).Don't get me [...]

  • Mariana Americano

    This book, made me laught a lot! It's a great book and Gwen and Luke's are a lovely couple.

  • Pilar SC

    La trama muy predecible. Le falta algo a la historia. Eso sí, muy buen narrada. Roberts nunca decepción en ese sentido.

  • Jesi

    I really didn't like the main character in this one. She was too young, maybe. Making assumptions, "trying to protect her mother" which really read as her deciding what was okay and how her mother should be, being manipulative and seeing nothing wrong with it I would have decked her, had I been the male lead. I usually enjoy Roberts, but this book just didn't sit well.

  • Corinne

    I like some of Nora Roberts books, but this wasn't one of them. It had no redeeming qualities and was just pure romance shlock. No mystery, not a strong central character, no interesting side plots. I would recommend skipping over this one.

  • Loes M.

    So in this book, Gwen was raised by a single mother who has her head in the clouds and who sometimes has people stay over to be able to afford her big mansion house. Gwen herself was always much more practical, growing up as a tomboy and now working at a fashion magazine as a big-shot editor in the big city. She keeps in touch with her mother through letters (because phones apparently didn’t exist in the nineties) and she is convinced that her mother is having an affair with a man twelve years [...]

  • Ashley Christensen

    She spent most of the book thinking her mom was having an affair with him, and let him kiss her and fall in love with him anyway. What is with these romance novels in the 80s? I'm glad this isn't a trend anymore. I feel like I should just update all of these with "Standard 80s Romance" and move on.

  • Aishwarya Damodar

    I like some of Nora Roberts books, but this certainly wasn't one of them. I am glad she evolved as an author eventually. Spoiler !!Awful plot, weak characters especially the central one - Gwenievre who is messed up in her head and actions. Such poor characterization and predictable story. Don't recommend it even for a light read.Give it a miss!

  • Tena

    Enjoyed the story line. A good read, just not as great as her other books. It teaches a lesson about jumping to conclusions.

  • B_becka

    Not one of her best If you suspect someone to be involved with your mother I would be really disgusted with myself if I didn't turn down his advances before I have all cards on the table.

    Kurz-Meinung:Das Hörbuch war ein Reinfall für mich – sowohl vom Inhalt als auch vom Sprecher.Der Inhalt war extrem kitschig und kaum nachvollziehbar. Und das sagt jemand der Kitsch sonst wirklich gut findet. Die Beziehung zwischen Gwen und Mortimer entwickelt sich viel zu schnell. Es wird mit keiner Silbe glaubhaft erklärt warum sich da überhaupt etwas zwischen den beiden entwickelt und schon liegen sie sich in den Armen und schmachten dahin. Noch lächerlicher wird das ganze dann am Ende [...]

  • Maura

    Ugh. Not a good book at all. We start out with an annoying heroine who leaps and bounds to all the wrong conclusions, feels the need to control her mother's life, is outright rude to people she doesn't know and is actually something of a whiny spoiled brat. The hero isn't much better. He spends a good portion of the book being a complete asshat. He seduces the heroine knowing that she thinks he's sleeping with her motherah, try to follow that He never bothers to correct her. He's mean to her, he [...]

    I rated this one a two because, after a little break from it, I was able to finish it. That can't be said about all books so that earned it a star.There were lots of wrong things about this book. The main character is 23 and is treated as if she has 15 more years world experience. In reality, her brain is still growing for about two more years. She acts like a child and can't seem to control her emotions or actions, and yet, the book refers to her as if she's approaching 40. Luke treats her as a [...]

    Gwen comes back home to Louisiana to end her mother's affair with a writer who she thinks is merely using her, and ends up falling for the guy herself.A premise (and plot) that could be solved with a single conversation (between mother and daughter or the hero coming clean from the start), an idiotic heroine that thinks she's all that but in the end really is just a child, and a story so paper thin it was laughable.I rolled my eyes at the dialogues, I rolled my eyes at the heroine's inner monolo [...]

    Yay another HerlequinHmm kali ini temanya pulang kampung dan ketemu cowo cakep yang ternyata lagi ngekost di rumah Woooaaa saya berasal dari keluarga yang rata-rata bule-bule dan bude-bude saya pengusaha kos2an, bahkan ada yang khusus cowo, tapi nggak pernah ada yang cakep *sigh*Anyway, ceritanya sih simple, Gwen denger katanya mamanya punya kekasih baru dan jauh lebih muda. Itulah alasannya kenapa dia memutuskan untuk pulang kampung, dan kesalahpahaman itu terjadi sepanjang novel. Padahal, kalo [...]

    I can honestly say that I am not sure if it is the narrator or the author that so quickly and completely drew me into the world of Gwen and Like. From the beginning I had to keep listening in order to find out what happened next. I liked the relationship that developed between Luke and Gwen, despite all of the misunderstandings and misconceptions.Gwen's mother, Annabelle, was also a very likeable chatacter. It felt completely realistic that her mother would respond to Gwen's inquiries in the way [...]

    Okay, So I recently read 3 of Nora's older books, this one, "From this Day", and "Less of a Stranger". All 3 are very similar in that the women seem much less strong. They all wind up giving in to the men that come into their lives, and the men push them around alot. It's like in their minds they never want to kiss or be intimate with these men but the men just grab them and they wind up giving in. Also, I guess because these are older books, the men don't have sex with them, but wait until they [...]

  • Linda Bogaard

    Very typical, very predictable romance novel by Nora Roberts.Everyone is exceptionally good looking and talented and the main character can't stand the other character at first (this time its the young woman who doesn't like the guy) but through a series of events, just can't resist him and falls in love and they "live happily ever after". Gag! Was a light listen while driving in the car.Daughter thinks man is taking advantage of her mother and that mother is falling in love with the guy.

  • Tania Martins

    Engraçado dentro do estilo Nora anos 80 mas as tantas achei a protagonista meio tontinha das ideias, quer dizer o Luke tambem não ajudou mas achei que eram demasiadas confusões desnecessariamente, salvou-se as personagens secundárias como os pintores e mesmo a mãe dela tambem a achei meio insonsa, achei aquele final muito abrupto. A Gwen era muito madura para umas coisas e para outras, porque e que a mãe dela não podia apaixonar-se por alguem mais novo mas ela podia apaixonar-se por um ho [...]

    A very lighthearted book for a lazy summer afternoon. The Heroine Gwen we get to know quite well but the Hero, I don´t know anything about him other than he is a writer who likes to get down to earth at times and chop trees. He was just to sketchy for me. And I wonder if it´s because it´s a rather old book that the story is about age differences and why the Hero doesn´t make love to the Heroine. He likes his bride to be a virgin and he is afraid she will lose her alluring innocence.No I didn [...]

    À semelhança de Ash e Ty de "Mundos Opostos", Luke e Gwen foram um casal também ambíguo: gostei deles, como personagens individuais (mais do Luke) mas como casal senti que faltava ali algo, e depois aquele pensamento da Gwen, que fazia com que se sentisse culpada pelo amor por Luke foi um pouco parvo, porque tirou conclusões precipitadas e podia muito bem ter resolvido logo os problemas, ao perguntar à mãe as suas dúvidas.

    Waktu mengambil buku ini dari tumpukan dosa di lemari, aku sempet ngira kalo buku ini belum terbaca. Tapi setelah beberapa bab pertama, langsung ingat kalau aku udah baca buku ini sebelumnya. Terus terang aku ga terlalu suka sama ceritanya. Tapi buku ini punya pesan moral agar kita ga mencampuri urusan orang lain, dan bahwa cinta itu ga mengenal batas usia. Apalah artinya perbedaan usia 12 tahun bagi sepasang manusia? (ecieeeee)

  • Mona

    I happened to read first "From this day" and the type of story is so alike. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the book. It's so catchy and funny (thanks to the character Luke, in my opinion) I quite dislike the way passion rose between them in a few seconds and how the girl gave in just like that. But I must say, this is something personal. The end was disappointing, not much, but it was. So predictable It's a summer read or a weekend read. Nothing outstanding, but entertaining.

  • Joy Naitore

    What can I say about Gwen and Mr. Powers.m I saw the spark despite the 12 years age difference. I did not blame Gwen at all when she thought Mr. Powers and her mum were having an affaireir age blended very wellWho wouldn't leave the expensive New York to go and save her mum from this Bold 'Atrocious' and 'Beastly' man Gwen has a wild mindI don't blame her.hehe

    its a fun bookcu pokoknyacurigaan adalah buah dari ketergesa-gesaan, hikmah yang bisa diambil dari nhe book adalah kita emang ga boleh berprasangka, baik itu prasangka baek . lagi buruk ^_^di sisi lain nda baik juga mencerminkan sesuatu yang nda benar dan nda meluruskan apa 'yang kelihatan'
