There are few things better than a good story well told!
This was not an enjoyable experience for me. I don't normally complain about a book being too long but this one sags and drags. I did not bond with the characters or the improbable plot. There was no suspense for me. Very repetitive and farfetched. The narration was okay, it was the story that disappointed.
Yes. I love Luke Daniels as a narrator. He draws me in to every story he has ever read.
I dont know. Its a nice murder mystery with a bit of romance in it that is not borderline porn! Just the right mix.
All of them
no, I was drawn in the whole time
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!
Gardener, knitter, reader, mandolin & violin player for fun. Mostly like mysteries, history and biographies. Listen to almost anything though.
The storyline in Whiskey Beach would have fit perfectly into a short story format. It was frustrating to stop knitting and fast forward through the tedious parts, of which there were many. I listen to Nora Roberts when I'm in need of some light entertainment. This was a tedious slog through nothingness. No more Nora Roberts for me.
In my view, the narration was fine. It's hard to do much with a dull storyline.
Her books are becoming rewrites of previous books. I remember other books with lost treasures to only be found by love. The ideas in the book are copies of other books. Change the characters and a few other things. The narrator was boring as well. I used to love Nora Roberts books, and JD Robb, but she has dried up and it's not cutting it for me anymore. I will wait for reviews on future work before purchasing it, hate to waste my money.
A better narrator for one that guy put me to sleep I couldn't even finish the voice was annoying and dull
No and I love Nora this book and narrator just were not up to par
slow dull and boring could not even get past the first few chapters
A new narrator would be best because this one stinks
Christal - Plano,
I don't have a clue.
I could not even get into the story. The Narrator was terrible. The worst I have listened to and I have 527entries from Audible. I don't think I even made it to the first hour. Very distracting. I love Nora and have read and listened to almost every one of her books. Please find another narrator for the Nora Roberts books.
I really enjoyed this book. Some might think it is typical Roberts & I guess it is but it is good nevertheless. Berkot did a great job narrating too. I would listen to him again & I definitely will read/listen to Nora again.
I'm not sure who would like this book more. I love Nora Roberts and this is the first one of her novels that I couldn't wait to end. Usually I can't put her books down but this one never really grabbed me.
I'm not sure yet but probably a romance because those are my favorite.
He did an okay job. All the women sounded weird but I think that's because it was a man trying to do women's voices.
Nothing, that's the problem.
I really hope this book was a fluke for Ms. Roberts because prior to this I never read one of her books that I didn't love. I read the reviews before buying this but I thought people must be wrong since I don't always agree with reviews.
Addicted to books, especially audiobooks. Read lots and prosper!
It is Nora Roberts. The story line is pretty much from formula. I did enjoy the protagonists - they were atypical. Our hero was not macho alpha and our heroine was more running the show. But it was written with nice balance and I loved Barbie (the dog). Was it a fantastic best ever? No. Did it absolutely stink? No. It was not my absolute favorite NR, but far from my least fav. I like male narrators and so I did enjoy the reading of this book. The main story line is from the male point of view. It was a good read/listen to be entertained but not rocking ones whole world. Select with care but no fear.
I am a huge NR fan,I but this & the other recent books are very one dimensional writing. I'm no writer, but I've listened to hundreds of audible books, and this barely kept my attention. Yes, it's a mystery, but no real story there. Sorry to all NR fans. This is not worth a credit.
