Publisher's Summary

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.…

    "Not all that well written."
    What disappointed you about Whiskey Beach?

    Basically it's unbelievable. Roberts must have had a great massage and thought describing it was enough. Characters not interesting.


    Has Whiskey Beach turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Peter Berkrot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but narration was Ok . You can't do much with a boring book


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    "I Could Not Even Finish the Book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't have a clue.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    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.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator.

    Story
    "In spite of itself, I enjoyed it."

    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.

    Books are my escape. Some books are even more inventive with someone else to make the right decisions on tones and inflection.

    "Nora Roberts I love you"
    Where does Whiskey Beach rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Nora Roberts for a reason. This book is wonderful and keeps you on your toes.


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

    He is one of my all time favorite readers. I always know when it's him that im in for a good listen.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I had to stop to get some sleep but first thing the next day it was back on till the finish.

    "Great book! Nobody does it better than NR!"
    Would you listen to Whiskey Beach again? Why?

    Absolutely - I just really enjoyed the storyline and the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Whiskey Beach?

    It was a series of moments really - watching this interesting man regain his balance and re-engage in life. Just a sweet transformation.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a really good feel good book! NR rocks again....

    "Easy Reading; No Brain Needed"

    I have liked the Nora Roberts books I've read. I purchased a series on a Black Friday promotion a couple of years ago, and one or two since then. I've enjoyed each of them. These are the books to read when you want to relax without a brain challenge. This doesn't keep you on the edge of your seat but it does keep you reading. The first third is pretty much fantasy but by the end of the book, I found myself appreciating some of the characters. Great for beach day or traveling. The narration was ok and fit the characters fairly well.

    "Second recording so much better"

    Revisited this since it's been recorded again with a new narrator....and it's a completely different listening experience. Luke Daniels gives the characters' life and personality, which was lacking in the first narration, and makes it incredibly easy to care about and empathize with them. You know immediately who's talking, each character has a distinct voice, brilliantly done. The story took on a different perspective with much more depth and was like a first listen. Loved it this time round.

    Not sure what attracted me to this book but it was far too soppy with a far fetched story line .
    I like a good Chicklit book but this of course is under the romance genre .
    My fault, I finished it, but not really sure why !

    "Does not disappoint"
    If you could sum up Whiskey Beach in three words, what would they be?

    Enjoyable, interesting, worthwhile


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eli as the main character. It was great 'seeing' his journey back to health.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No but would be prepared to.do.so. His female accents do come across as a little camp but not annoying


    Any additional comments?

    Read the paperback so knew the story but thoroughly enjoyed the audio version.

    "Unsuitable narrator unfortunately"
    What did you like best about Whiskey Beach? What did you like least?

    Nora Roberts writes great books so a no star review will not affect her in the least, but the narrator was unsuitable for this story as his 'female' voice sounded ridiculous. Why did he have to resort to a simpering man to get the heroine's dialogue across!?


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    DNF


    Would you be willing to try another one of Luke Daniels’s performances?

    No


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

    Yes, probably.


    Any additional comments?

    Will be more careful when ordering audio books!

    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Many many wonderful scenes impossible to pick a favourite.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the 1st book I've read by Nora Roberts, but it won't be the last. The characters were brilliantly written by her and portrayed by the narrator. They were people you began to care about, wanting things to go well for them and whilst the story was fairly predictable it was told well and kept me listening, not wanting it to end.

    Story
    "Not up to her usual standard"
    What disappointed you about Whiskey Beach?

    I am a big fan of Nora Roberts, and when she makes an effort her standalone romances are often her best work - The Witness was great - but this has a knocked off feel to it. Boring plot, and the lead female character was AWFUL. So smug and annoying, even worse than Mia Devlin in Face the Fire. Eli really should not have let her get away with dictating to him so much and "knowing better" than him constantly. I feel very sorry for him if he's stuck with her ever after.


    Has Whiskey Beach put you off other books in this genre?

    Nope. Nora is very variable, so you take pot luck. She can write extremely well, but she doesn't always bother to.


    What character would you cut from Whiskey Beach?

    Abra!

    the detail descrinig bluff house


    What aspect of Luke Daniels’s performance might you have changed?

    Abra's protrayal in the last 5-6 chapters she was a bit giddy and annoying.


    Was Whiskey Beach worth the listening time?

    Whiskey beach was a worthwhile listen
