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 Nora's best work."

    I enjoyed the characters in this book and the beach setting but the story was predictable and dragged quite a bit!

    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.

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

    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.

    "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.

    "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....

    Story
    "Luke Daniels"

    I disliked the character "Abra". I think Mr Daniels made her sound unbelievable as a female and Nora Roberts wrote her character sound pushy, know it all , and was into everybody,s business weather she was asked or not. Her take charge attitude would never make any man attractive to her as she treated him like a child. Do to that. I usually enjoy Ms Roberts books this one left me disappointed.

    "Great story poor choose of narrator"

    I really liked this book but almost stopped early because of the choice of narrator, while he was good, the female parts were spoken too phony for lake of a better word.
