#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.

I've read dozens of Nora Roberts books and this one is good but not one of her best. I thought it was too long with lots of unnecessary conversations that didn't contribute to the story. I did enjoy the overall story line, so if you have time to read one of her longer books you may enjoy it.

This book is okay, but not Nora's best. The hero Eli has too much angst, and the lady Abra is too New Agey and somewhat occult. Do not like her at all. Her name should be Abra-cadabra.
Originality is lacking. I can picture someone saying, "It was a dark and stormy night..."
A disappointing read. Skimmed the last third to look for plot. Nora should not have created a female character who is a bar maid, and reads tarot cards, as these types are the dregs of society.

Really enjoyed this book. It was one of her better ones.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. The plot -- a man suffering from the murder of his wife, and whom the court of public opinion has declared guilty who returns to his (of course) palatial family home on the beach -- could have been trite; add to it pirate treasure (!!), a freewheeling housekeeper/yoga instructor, a dog named Barbie... you get my drift. But WHISKEY BEACH is a fun, and touching read, rising above the cliches to give us a pretty good legal thriller, family history, and love story.

Once again, Nora Roberts excels at her craft! I loved this book. The plotline kept you hooked from the beginning. I didn't want to put it down and I felt I could connect with the characters. Definitely will buy this one to reread! :)

I thought the book was good but much to repetitive and way longer than need be to give the story,

One of Nora Roberts best. Great story and characters. Couldn't put it down, read in just over one day. Can't wait for her next one!
