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.…

    "Review by Kim Isbell"

    The story, characters, and performance were all wonderful. I enjoyed every second of this extremely well written novel that had it all. Suspense, romance, growth of many characters, and a full feeling at the end. I love concrete endings!💜

    "Suspense & Romance at its best!"

    I found myself wanting to listen to this until I finished it. I normally listen to audio books during my long commute to & from work. I listened to this at every opportunity! I love Nora Roberts style & character development. The performance by Lee Daniels was great also. . .the voice of the characters are so different. This is one I will listen to again and again.

    Story
    "Predictable but reliable Nora Roberts"

    I have listened to a number of Ms Roberts stories now. She always delivers what I expect, lightweight love stories of strong albeit damaged souls seeking love. Usually the male voices have been less satisfying but I give this narrator higher marks. He did make his female voice a bit giddy and sometimes silly. It was so nice to hear a novel include a cell phone and ipad! Thinking I am starting a new novel only to find out it was only recently made audio has been at times disappointing. For this story, poor little rich boy goes back to family home after his wife is murdered. He meets a yoga instructor, bartender, jewelry maker. Her care taking opens his hurt heart. She has an MBA and her mom won the Nobel Prize but hey, she wants to teach yoga? Really? Like I said predictable. It is a good choice for the lightweight puff piece Ms. Roberts is known for. I have found her stories of the Witness, Chasing Fire more to my liking. The Collector would be also listed but her heroes propensity to tell the women to "shut up" makes me want to slug them not quietly be a good girl for him.
    It would be nice to have folks meet and fall in love while actually having to work for a living once in a while.

    Like I said, good lightweight, puffy all ends well romance for a sick day in bed.

    "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.

    "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
