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.…

Gardener, knitter, reader, mandolin & violin player for fun. Mostly like mysteries, history and biographies. Listen to almost anything though.
The storyline in Whiskey Beach would have fit perfectly into a short story format. It was frustrating to stop knitting and fast forward through the tedious parts, of which there were many. I listen to Nora Roberts when I'm in need of some light entertainment. This was a tedious slog through nothingness. No more Nora Roberts for me.
In my view, the narration was fine. It's hard to do much with a dull storyline.
There are few things better than a good story well told!
This was not an enjoyable experience for me. I don't normally complain about a book being too long but this one sags and drags. I did not bond with the characters or the improbable plot. There was no suspense for me. Very repetitive and farfetched. The narration was okay, it was the story that disappointed.
Yes. I love Luke Daniels as a narrator. He draws me in to every story he has ever read.
I dont know. Its a nice murder mystery with a bit of romance in it that is not borderline porn! Just the right mix.
All of them
no, I was drawn in the whole time
This was another great book by Nora. I dont know what all these bad reviews were abot and I am mad at myself for letting those comments delay my purchase of this book. NO REGRETS HERE!
Totally addicted to Audible.
I won't disagree that this is not Nora Roberts' best but I always enjoy characters that overcome their circumstances. Narrator was not my favorite but not detracting either.
Her books are becoming rewrites of previous books. I remember other books with lost treasures to only be found by love. The ideas in the book are copies of other books. Change the characters and a few other things. The narrator was boring as well. I used to love Nora Roberts books, and JD Robb, but she has dried up and it's not cutting it for me anymore. I will wait for reviews on future work before purchasing it, hate to waste my money.
I really enjoyed this book. Some might think it is typical Roberts & I guess it is but it is good nevertheless. Berkot did a great job narrating too. I would listen to him again & I definitely will read/listen to Nora again.
A love story and mystery that will keep you guessing to the very end. You know who didn't do I, but not til the end do you find out who did do it.
I love this book
The narrator was excellent!
Daniel getting caught in the act!
Ms. Roberts never disappoint. And Luke Daniels, really, did he voiced all those characters? Wow! excellent. I definitely recommend this book. it's a page turner. This is one for the Library
A better narrator for one that guy put me to sleep I couldn't even finish the voice was annoying and dull
No and I love Nora this book and narrator just were not up to par
slow dull and boring could not even get past the first few chapters
A new narrator would be best because this one stinks
I have already listened to it 3 times. Even knowing the ending, The way the story twists and turns makes me want to listen again and again!
The love story between Abra and Eli.
Hester - Grandmother to 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.
"another great story"
twists and turns
Abra's story - can't say more as it will spoil the impact
