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.…

    "Awesome "

    Love Nora Roberts but this story was so great with the historical aspects of it. Love the beach setting and mystery of the Bluff House with it's passageways! It was interesting how the families were connected so far in the past and not know it. Thanks Miss Roberts for all your stories!

    Story
    "Nearly same plot as Angel Falls"
    What would have made Whiskey Beach better?

    If all her plots were more researched. Feels like she is getting lazy as she's using nearly exactly the same formula and recycling plot lines of many of her books. I really used to like her, but please, oh please... never use the quote "Dumb as a box of hair" again. She has used this eloquent quote in several books now. There are many more insulting comments she could use, trust me, I'm a teacher.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    Feels like she is recycling plot lines. Its all sounding the same. Literally, all female characters have a difficult past, overcoming a current insecurity, happen to be thin and beautiful, horribly opinionated and quite stupid. The guys all happen to be good, stand up men who are going through personal crisis and usually both charachters 'take the law into theie own hands' as they forgo common sense and 'risk it all' for love. All that changes is charachter name, career, a few personal details and location. Otherwise, its a fill in the blank template.


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

    He's not so bad, but a woman for a womans voice would be nice. But its just obvious hes trying his best, but, even he sounded bored in some parts of the script.


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

    I would eliminate innane comments, which make up half the book. They are stumbling blocks over the stoeyline and what makes the story sound repetitive. I like the old man at the bar, it was a nice character who had just enough 'screen time' to make a scene interesting, provide key information, gave meat to the story, and mentioned in passing before disappearing. The rest of charachters are waaaay to chatty and overthink a situation.


    Any additional comments?

    Nora does have a way with words, she can make a descriptive scene but bogged down by her past plot lines. Can you get a woman who is in her forties, a little soft, tired and has a intersting backstory but is revitalized by love, personal transformation, not trying to solve a puzzle but gets swept up in getting involved with life, finds new goal, happiness in achieving and finding the guy? Her target audience is getting older, and kinda tired of reading about mid twenties love stories. Life gets more complicated and interesting after forty anyways.

    "Good Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recomend this book to friends. I felt like I was there at Whiskey Beach and I exploring the Bluffs - and trying to figure out who was threatening it.


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

    The last part when Eli & Abba were waiting to confront the threat.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Good page turning book to listen to.

    "Couldnt finish"

    Very disappointing. I have listened to a number of N Roberts audible books and enjoyed them. The narrator on this was terrible. The heroine sounds like Mrs. Doubtfire. I couldnt get into the story because I couldnt get over that narration. What a waste of money.

    "Great Story"

    I always enjoy Nora's books. She has likable characters and well-plotted stories. The narrator has a smooth voice for Ely, but his voice for Abra is not even close to believable. I liked the story anyway.

    "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.

    "Too soppy and soapy for me"

    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.

    Story
    "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!

    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!

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

    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
