I always enjoy Roberts' romantic suspense stand alone novels, and this one is no exception. It's got a twisty plot (I didn't see who dunnit coming, although in retrospect I should have), and a nice, slowly developing relationship between the protagonists. Whiskey Beach doesn't have Roberts' usually well-defined cast of secondary characters, and the family relationships that make Roberts so much fun mostly take place off-stage - all the book focus is on the two main characters, really, with even the antagonists being mostly off-stage.
It's not as good as Blue Smoke, but it's better than Chasing Fire.
anyone. Peter Berkrot just reads the book, makes no real attempt at differentiating voices, even of the male characters - this makes it sometimes hard to follow, given that Roberts usually avoids the "he said, she said" style of dialog.
The lead character and his family are an old Boston family, and there's no attempt to sound East Coast at all - it's all read pretty much in a midwestern accent.
The very beginning when a hear-sick and weary Eli first comes to the Bluff House, his retreat from a life in Boston that had become intolerable.
Not good. I can't get through this version either. The new version with narrator Luke Daniels makes the main charactor, Eli sound like a gangster. His tone is rough and too dramatic. Eli is a successful criminal attorney, who should be a smooth talker and not cursing his ex-wife like some hoodlum. Don't know if this gets better, I can't get past the first few chapters. Again, I expect better from a Norah Roberts novel.
Books are my escape. Some books are even more inventive with someone else to make the right decisions on tones and inflection.
I love Nora Roberts for a reason. This book is wonderful and keeps you on your toes.
He is one of my all time favorite readers. I always know when it's him that im in for a good listen.
Yes. I had to stop to get some sleep but first thing the next day it was back on till the finish.
Absolutely - I just really enjoyed the storyline and the characters.
It was a series of moments really - watching this interesting man regain his balance and re-engage in life. Just a sweet transformation.
Not necessarily - but it was one I enjoyed going back to. I definitely wanted to see what would happen next with this fun and interesting couple. Great story.
Just a really good feel good book! NR rocks again....
I don't agree with the decision to change narrators
Nora Roberts books are always fresh and interesting
definitely not up to nora roberts quality. I have read all of her books and this was awful.
not much story line
