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.…

    "History of Bluff House "

    Great story line. Lindsey's murderer was good for surprise ending. Recommend it but didn't like Abra's voice. sounded silly & childish.

    "great book but....."

    This is a great book and I really enjoyed reading it and wanted to listen to it. But It was REALLY hard to listen to it !!! I wish that they would have men do men and women do women !!! You would have even better sales !! I tend to want to lean towards books that do just that .

    "A ice blend of mystery & romance"

    Good story line and interesting characters. The romance part was a little to sappy and bodice ripping for my tastes,but for those who enjoy romance novels will enjoy it. Suspenseful and not so easy to guess the who done it parts. A light, fun read.

    "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.

    "TYPICAL NORA ROBERT"

    This story is a typical Nora Roberts. It is filled with wonderful characters, humor, romance, plots with lots of unexpected twists and turns, a book that keeps you want to know more. Being a Nora Roberts fan I enjoyed the book.

    "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 !

    Story
    "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!

    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    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.

    Pretty daft storyline of a previous family member burying treasure on the beach and lots of people trying to find it; while present day family deals with an ailing grandmother and false accusations of murder.

    As always, I tried to work out who had "done it", and as usual remained wrong until the final couple of chapters.

    Any Nora Roberts fans will enjoy this hugely.

    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!

    Story
    "unromantic horror"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know who might enjoy this book. I have enjoyed other Nora Robert's novels & like a good romantic suspense but here the woman spends every waking hour bending over backwards in every kind of way, cooking, baking, cleaning, laundry, running errands, waiting tables, and giving the odd massage in between exercising... so I guess anyone who finds hearing all about that might enjoy this.

    This felt like a book Nora Robert's wrote when she needed a break from writing.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    The macho meatloaf loving man who can’t cook. The housekeeping woman who upon first meeting insists on cooking a man’s every meal, giving him massages, folding his underwear and cleaning his home while being super yoga flexible and putting up with his sulking. To me that’s romantic horror not romantic suspense. Every major female character seems to fit rusty typecasts. This is not so much sexy or suspenseful, it’s more stereotypes. I deal with the author’s unrealistic idea of how people talk because normally Nora Robert’s female leads have a more sass and a bit more going on in their present lives than getting the guy and making him happy. Nora Roberts also normally writes a good plot. This female lead, despite her back story, seemed pretty weakly drawn though half the book was focused around her, and the narrative seems slow without strong characters to carry it.


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

    I enjoyed the setting of Whisky Beach and Bluff House. The book was also fairly well narrated, (though the female characters could get a little bit squeaky occasionally.)
