    For more than 300 years, Bluff House has sat above Whiskey Beach, guarding its shore - and its secrets. But to Eli Landon, it’s home.… A Boston lawyer, Eli has weathered an intense year of public scrutiny and police investigations after being accused of - but never arrested for - the murder of his soon-to-be-ex wife. He finds sanctuary at Bluff House, even though his beloved grandmother is in Boston recuperating from a nasty fall. Abra Walsh is always there, though.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Whiskey Beach to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I love Luke Daniels as a narrator. He draws me in to every story he has ever read.


    What other book might you compare Whiskey Beach to and why?

    I dont know. Its a nice murder mystery with a bit of romance in it that is not borderline porn! Just the right mix.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of them


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no, I was drawn in the whole time


    Any additional comments?

    This was another great book by Nora. I dont know what all these bad reviews were abot and I am mad at myself for letting those comments delay my purchase of this book. NO REGRETS HERE!

    With the legends and lore of Ireland running through his blood, falconer Connor O’Dwyer is proud to call County Mayo home. It’s where his sister, Branna, lives and works, where his cousin, Iona, has found true love, and where his childhood friends form a circle that can’t be broken. A circle that is about to be stretched out of shape - by a long-awaited kiss. Meara Quinn is Branna’s best friend, a sister in all but blood. Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator was awful


    Would you recommend Shadow Spell to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend reading the book, not listening


    What didn’t you like about Alan Smyth’s performance?

    Too many pauses. Couldn't tell one character from the other. Too much emphasis on annunciation to whereas it sounded like he was reading the book for the first time.

    Kelsey Byden grew up believing her mother had died when she was three. Now at 26 and freshly divorced, she receives a letter from her mother explaining that she is alive and living on a Virginia horse farm. Deeply stung by lies told to protect her, Kelsey takes her anger out at her college professor father by going to visit her mother, who Kelsey learns spent over 10 years in prison for murder. But there are more secrets to be found out and Kelsey decides to stay at her mother's splendid horse farm where she falls in love with horses and the man next door, handsome gambler Gabe Slater.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a good story, but the narration made it diffcult to listen to and follow. It sounded like one big run on sentence. The character voices lacked any feeling and it was read way too fast.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It needed to be read slower and with more emotion


    Did True Betrayals inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me never to get an audiobook with this narrator again.
