    Story
    "Better with new narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I originally bought this book with a different narrator. I had a hard time getting invested sin the story. Since this was rereleased with Luke Daniels as the narrator, I redownloaded and was much happier with it. I wish there was some way Audible could let buyers know when a book was done with a different narrator.


    What other book might you compare Whiskey Beach to and why?

    Most of Nora Roberts mystery type books have a similar flavor. I enjoy them enough that I usually listen to them at least a couple of times a year and never get tired of them.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Abra fights off her attacker.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Once again, narration is key to enjoying a book.

    "Poor narration"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Nora Roberts books but the use of a male for narration is off-putting. Although the main character is male, the author is a female and writes with a female voice and perspective. Luke Daniels makes the female characters sound whiney and weak. If you want to enjoy the book, you are better off reading it rather than listening to it.

    "Narration is fantastic"
    If you could sum up Whiskey Beach in three words, what would they be?

    One great read


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abra - she was so positive and full of life and energy


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

    Not sure I have ever listened to any of his performances, but I will be looking for them now. He made the book flow and each person an individual entity that you could tell apart just by his voice. Wonderful performance on this book.

    "WORST performance. So bad, it's distracting..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Overacted, distracting performance. Should have been a less affected actor... disappointed. Can't understand how this was so highly rated...


    What didn’t you like about Luke Daniels’s performance?

    Too much! So distracting...


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story was good, performance was just awful.

    "Predictable and Tedious"
    What would have made Whiskey Beach better?

    I probably would have enjoyed the abridged version much better


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    Yes I have older books/audible that I have re-listened to and probably will listen to again. May not buy any new books again, unless abridged


    Did Luke Daniels do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Luke Daniels is the only reason I continued to listen to this book, he is always reliable.

    Story
    "Need an additional narrator for the woman's part"
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Luke Daniels?

    I would. This book was just OK, but some have been excellent.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More of a plot. It was somewhat boring and the woman's voice was irritating


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luke Daniels?

    I thought he did an excellent job for the man's voice, but terrible for the woman's voice. I think they should consider a male and female narrator the next time.


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

    no

    "Poor Plot-Luke Daniels is a great narrator though"

    This was in an Audible "Three books for two credits" deal this week-I'd been bit with a couple of other titles that I returned and I have a feeling this one is going back.

    Nora Roberts writes similar stories-we all know that. I thought Luke Daniels narration would sufficiently save a unsubstantial plot but sadly not even that worked with this story arc.

    I've come to the confusion that I'm never buying books from the "loser list" again.

    Not worth the time or money, even for a real Nora Roberts fan

    Story
    "Average Contemporary Romance/Mystery -Easy Listen"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Again I find myself questioning, "Who is Nora Roberts?"

    I LOVE many of her works but it seems that her best and most interesting are her older books! It seems that her newer stuff is blasée... Whiskey Beach is a romance with history wrapped around a mystery but all aspects are boring to this reader.

    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.…


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect was who murdered Eli's wife. The rest of the book was SO LONG and drawn out... there were so many details that were not specific or needed.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    Eli and his grandmother... Luke Daniels did a good job, it was just SO tedious.


    Was Whiskey Beach worth the listening time?

    No, I may recommend the Abridged version...but I'd listen to other Nora Roberts books over and over. Some of those are: Carnal Innocence, The Villa, Northern Lights, Honest Illusions, Rivers End, Three Fates and The Witness

    "Worst narrator ever!"
    What did you love best about Whiskey Beach?

    The story was good. Typical Nora Roberts. Kept my attention for a week of my commute.


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

    Absolutely not! His performance almost sent me to the print version by Chapter 10. He was ridiculous and made the characters sound stupid and corny. Made it seem like a comedy.
