Nora roberts whiskey beach review
Whiskey Beach by Nora RobertsFor more than three hundred years, Bluff House has sat above Whiskey Beach, guarding its shore--and its secrets. But to Eli Landon, its 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 Beachs 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...
Thank you! But something is not right at the homestead, and a string of accidents and crimes follows Eli to the coast. Roberts brings her inimitably smooth writing skill, excellent characterization and textured plotting to her newest romantic suspense, which plays out as much a character drama with suspense elements as a crime procedural, since the buildup to and motive for the crimes is fairly languidly paced, though compelling. A sweet, sexy romance with an intriguing historical family mystery that bleeds into a modern-day crime spree, casting suspicion on an innocent man. There was a problem adding your email address.

I have so enjoyed getting back to reading Nora Roberts over the last few years. I read her a lot way back when, then read less and less as I got more and more review books. What makes any of her books so very good is her characters. That is all so very true in this book when you meet Eli Landon and Abra Walsh. He needs the peace after being the number one suspect over the last year in the murder of his wife.

Oh, I didn't know this was romantic suspense, I have never really gotten into that genre. Sorry this one didn't tun out better, though. Alex, yes! Once a year, NR releases a romance suspense book and they're "must reads" for me. I like them because the books are standalones, higher on romance and lighter on suspense.
