Whiskey Beach

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts weaves together passion and obsession, humor and heart, in a novel of two people opening themselves up to the truth—and to each other.

For more than three hundred 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.

  1. Running out of ideas? Nora Roberts (and her alter ego J.D. Robb) are auto-buys for me, but she isn’t always on top of her game, and here she bobbles the ball. From the very first pages, I was disappointed. First – though this would probably be the least of the problems for the average reader – there wasn’t enough editing. I’ve noticed this over the past couple of years, and it may be due to churning out too many books on schedule. Ms. Roberts claims to write all her own books. Now consider that she produces two…

  2. Whiskey Sour I never write reviews. And, I love Nora Roberts (one of my favorite authors). Yet, I have to say this book – in one word is – Disappointing. Was the problem with the writing or editing? It was honestly like reading someone trying to write ‘like’ the author, yet not quite getting it. And parts that needed cutting just go on for pages. Her normal great scene setting is evident at the start. And then? It doesn’t stop – for pages! The whole thing is choppy…a nice read interrupted by excesses, dry…

  3. Sorry Nora, but I hated it! I’m a huge Nora Roberts fan, but I just stopped reading after 50 pages. It was boring – Eli moping, Eli shoveling snow, Eli making breakfast, I think you get the picture. And Abra – just annoying. Small wonder there was no chemistry! And where did that name come from? But I’ll still read her books, hope this is a fluke.
