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. Whiskey Beach’s resident housekeeper, yoga instructor, jewelry maker, and massage therapist, Abra is a woman of many talents - including helping Eli take control of his life and clear his name. But as they become entangled in each other, they find themselves caught in a net that stretches back for centuries - one that has ensnared a man intent on reaping the rewards of destroying Eli Landon once and for all.…

Basically it's unbelievable. Roberts must have had a great massage and thought describing it was enough. Characters not interesting.
No, but narration was Ok . You can't do much with a boring book
I have already listened to it 3 times. Even knowing the ending, The way the story twists and turns makes me want to listen again and again!
The love story between Abra and Eli.
Hester - Grandmother to Eli.
I wish I could have listened in one sitting. Listened to some at work - hated it when someone would ask a question and I had to pause the book.
happily ever afters
The story could easily have been told in 10 hours by a better narrator.
Far too much was said/done that didn't propel the story forward in a timely manner.
Wouldn't you know one of the few times I find a male narrator who can successfully pull off a female voice is a dud as a hero. Where are James Daniels, Jack Garrett, Steve West & Dennis Boutsikaris when you need them?
While several scenes differed in setting, their purpose ended in the same results - more of the same. Thereby the story didn't progress fast enough.
A good audio book has me glued to my audio device, absolutely can't miss a word. Meaning I've got to stop/start & some times back up because our home sweet home runs like Grand Central Station. But when I can leave the room for a snack or prepare for bed, including an arsenal of miracle promising potions, while the book plays on and on, return to discover I haven't missed a thing, then this isn't a good story.
The narrator was great with the male voices. Hated the female narration. Made her sound like a crazed old woman. Hard to get through that at times. Enjoyed it immensely other that that.
Absolutely, perfect blend of romance, action, drama, and comedy, all rolled up in the imperfect packages of the leading lady and man. You'll fall in love with both of them and by that time you wont be able to stop listening since you'll have to continue the story
Everything! It was actually him as a narrator that let me find this book, there are a few narrators that I'm so addicted to that I'll search for the narrator instead of the author, and Luke Daniels is one of them. Luke Daniels has the same qualities that I get addicted to, he portrays the emotion so well you can't help but feel it too, he switches between characters seemlessly, and I love his voice!
Nora Roberts is romance, with a little thriller thrown in. The thriller component is superficial. Once you adjust your brain to that setting, her books are quite nice. The Witness was very good, but some of the Roberts's other books put me off. I thought Whiskey Beach was one of her better ones.
I loved the whole book. The characters, the setting, the atmosphere.
I loved the main protagonists and how they dealt with the hardships that life had thrown at their path.
I loved the very last scene.
It was. I had planned to listen to an hour before going to bed and ended up listening all night.
"another great story"
twists and turns
Abra's story - can't say more as it will spoil the impact
