    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 try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Luke Daniels?

    I would. This book was just OK, but some have been excellent.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More of a plot. It was somewhat boring and the woman's voice was irritating


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luke Daniels?

    I thought he did an excellent job for the man's voice, but terrible for the woman's voice. I think they should consider a male and female narrator the next time.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no

    Miss Amity Doncaster, world traveler, is accustomed to adventure and risk. Benedict Stanbridge, a man of science and a spy for the Crown, has faced danger in the darker corners of foreign lands. But they are about to face a threat that is shockingly close to home . . . One does not expect to be kidnapped on a London street in broad daylight.

    What could Amanda Quick have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It was so out of line from her other books that I thought it must've been written by someone else.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator wasn't bad

    It's been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River. The last time she visited her aunt Sara there, as a teenager, she'd been sent home suddenly after being dragged out of a wild party - by the guy she had a crush on, just to make it more embarrassing.

    Mary Beth Maschner says: "Bad narrator, cookie cutter story"

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

    I enjoyed the story, but felt the narrators voice was somewhat irritating and made listening somewhat unpleasant.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Amanda Leigh Cobb’s performances?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story and think I would have enjoyed the book more if I read it myself, because the narrator was bad. I've been spoiled by the narrators like Jim Dale, or Justine Eyre, and I would highly recommend Ms. Krentz finds another narrator for her next book.

    Under the plain gray skirts of Miss Beatrice Lockwood’s gown, a pistol waits at the ready. For Beatrice is a paid companion on a secret mission - and with a secret past - and she must be prepared to fight for her life at any moment. Yet she is thrown oddly off guard by the fierce-looking man who joins her in foiling a crime outside a fancy ball - and then disappears into the shadows, leaving only his card. His name is Joshua Gage....

    If you could sum up The Mystery Woman in three words, what would they be?

    Fantastic Narrator


    What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is an amazing narrator and is able to portray each character individually and appropriately


    Any additional comments?

    I would highly recommend this audio book, and would highly recommend this narrator.
