    Story
    "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

    The love story between Abra and 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.

    Story
    "Extremely Disappointed in Nora's Latest"
    What would have made Whiskey Beach better?

    The story could easily have been told in 10 hours by a better narrator.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    Far too much was said/done that didn't propel the story forward in a timely manner.


    What didn’t you like about Peter Berkrot’s performance?

    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?


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Whiskey Beach?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Enjoyed it but narration spoiled it."

    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.

    Story
    "Totally worth the length, couldn't be better :)"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    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!

    Story
    "For me, one of her better books"

    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.
