haven't read the print but loving this and wish there was a Book 2 on Whiskey Beach
The love interest
Was able to easily tell the different characters apart.
I love a book where the main character has great respect for the women in his life and the affection Eli had for his grandmother, Hesta was well written, as was the gradual integration of Eli into Whiskey Beach and with the love of Abra Walsh helping him to taking control of his life again. It was a nice journey to be part of.
I would. He did a surprisingly good job of the men and women's voices and making sure you always knew who was talking.
I love Nora Roberts but this book could not compare to the Witness or Montana Sky which I consider her bests.
He captures the unique voices and feelings if each character.
No. There really isn't that much action. This is just an easy listen if you're looking to pass the time.
I hope Nora Roberts gets back to her greats like northern lights. This book didn't feel very well thought out to me. I enjoyed it but would not listen to it again like I've done with many of her books.
When downloaded, the reader was Peter Berkrot. I listened to eleven chapters and received an email from Audible informing me that the audiobook had been replaced due to listener reviews. The remainder of the book was narrated by Luke Daniels. I had no problem with narration.
Honestly, I'm struggling with the proper tone of this review. I admire Roberts, any struggling author would. The J. D. Robb In Death series alone is enviable, let alone all the other best selling books and made-for-TV gems this author has penned. The story of Whiskey Beach is okay, I guess, typical boy-gets-girl love story, ultimately. Throw in some murder, mystery, and an ancient mansion overlooking a wind-swept beach and you have a winner.
One of my issues with this story doesn't have anything to do with a tried and true formula, which Roberts has perfected. It's more along the lines of writing conventions that successful veteran writers ignore. An example is point of view. In Whiskey Beach, today's acceptable standards are ignored. If submitted by an unknown writer, this book is likely headed to the slush pile. Personally, the double standard is a bit hard to take. If you're a Nora Roberts, the rules don't apply.The book is enjoyable, albeit a bit formulaic. A three-star read.
A clever story with twists and turns as well as many personalities. Even though the characters are as different as night and day, Ms. Roberts makes them work.
This is a great listen. The story was captivating and the narration was superbly done; far better than the original.
Whiskey Beach is very much in the category of Nora Roberts' Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy...full of suspense, humor, and of course ROMANCE! There are parts where you just have to laugh out loud!
I listened to Luke Daniels in the Iron Druid Chronicles series by Kevin Hearne, and was so excited to see that he was the narrator for this re-record. He was OUTSTANDING as usual!
I would have LOVED to listen to this story all at one time, but, as that was not possible, I made sure to do what I usually do and re-listen to the last few minutes where I left off so I could get back into the story. However, that really wasn't necessary because I found that I was quickly and totally submerged within 30 seconds of returning!
Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors, so I did enjoy the story the first time I listened to it when I originally purchased it. However, the narration of the re-record was such a vast improvement over the original version that it was like I hadn't really heard it before at all! It was entertaining and full of suspense and fun! I truly believe that Luke Daniels' talent was the perfect compliment to Nora's! True synergy!
A blast from the past.
The strong grandmother, a family value.
I felt it was a little drawn out, but the writer covered all the angles.
Where to begin. I enjoyed my last Nora Roberts book on audio so much I decided to listen to this one on audio too. Big mistake. Sorry, but the narrator's voice was way too distracting for me. It was raspy and comical when he tried to do female voices. It took me till almost 3/4 of the way through before I stopped hearing his voice and actually hearing the story instead.
I am sure I would have enjoyed this book much more had I read it, but I paid for the audio and wasn't going to just waste that money
Not on audio
The voice- my heavens. Terrible narration.
I was able to get through the whole book, but the mystery seemed fabricated. I love all of her earlier stories, but have been dissapointed lately with her new ones.
Say something about yourself!
I learned long ago that Nora Roberts has a formula, but it works. Anytime I want an easy read with great character development, a little mystery, some hesitation before admitting love, and then a happy ending, I know to grab her latest book. I'm not sure how she keeps coming up with different combinations, but I always enjoy them and am always missing the characters just a bit.
She didn't disappoint. Great beach read!
