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....

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.

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!
