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.

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.…

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!

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.

Excellent

I absolutely love it. I read the reviews and was really worried about getting it but I am so glad I got it. This is a great story. I love the characters (Abra is just AMAZING). I ADORE Luke Daniels. He makes books really come to life!!!

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.
