Customer Reviews

Not what I was expectingWell, the other one I bought first, was not what I was expecting; I had a somewhat better idea about this one. Nora Roberts' strength is character development. She really fleshes her characters, makes them come alive. What bothered me about this one was the number of times she described sex between two of the characters. I don't consider this necessary to a story, and I don't like reading it. Oh, she isn't totally explicit. And she does weave a rather colorful picture, and makes it different each time. It's just not what I want to read. The mystery (or whatever you want to call it) behind the situation isn't really given that much attention. In fact a reader gets well into the book before any hints start to get dropped, although I was able to figure out who the culprit was for most of the crimes. The whole thing with the necessary details only takes a few pages at the end.The other thing that bothered me about this book is that it is very New Age. Not my cup of tea. I especially found the occasional references to Tarot to be most disconcerting and unpleasant. Also, I am no fan of yoga. The female character is quite interesting otherwise, and it's too bad she was spoiled by these details.This is much more of a romance novel than any kind of mystery story. I am more interested in police procedurals, detective stories, stuff like that. But if you like a romance done in a way that appeals more to adults than teenagers, you might enjoy this book. But after sampling two of hers, I think I'll pass. I don't have enough time to read her other 200 books anyway.My rating is just my personal opinion. She is truly a skillful writer, and I did really enjoy her character development in general, but it's just not my cup of tea with the problems duly noted.3Just OKI love Nora Roberts and buy everything she writes but this one is a disapointment. It never caught my attention. In fact, it took me almost 3 weeks to finish it because it was so easy to put down. Eli was ok but I didn't find Abra believable at all. Sometimes I felt like she was more like his mother than his girlfriend. I didn't think she had enough development. Yeah, she was this this and this, but I just couldn't see it. I think Roberts needs to focus more on quality vs. quantity. Justin Suskind needed more development too. I hate it when you can't figure out the ending only because the author gave you absolutely no clue where it is going and when it gets to the end it just doesn't make enough sense. I just think this book could have used more development and I hope Roberts tries harder in the future. I feel like she is cheating her fans that know she is capable of so much more.3One of my favesSo, I don't really know how many times I've read this book now. All I know that I love it every time I read; its like the best Christmas/birthday present you can open again and again. NR always writes great books and I have never been able to choose an all time favorite but this is right up there. I love Eli and Abra (isn't abacadabra the best nickname ever?), I love their story. How both went through traumatic events, events that shattered the lives they had and thought they wanted and from that wreckage they built lives that best suited them and together they created a life based on love, trust and joy. It's a story of the resiliency of human spirit and the power of human will. It shows what man and woman can accomplished, even when everything else is taken away, for good and bad. How love can redeem and save you and how much damage it can do when its twisted and abused.5Okay book. Interesting mystery. Not a lot of chemistry. Not her finest hour...I'm a big fan of Nora Roberts and have been reading her books for years and one of the things that she's always exceptional at is bringing you into the characters' emotions, feeling the chemistry, getting pulled into the story. Even when there are flaws in the story that's usually there. But in this case, that's the one thing that was really lacking.The story of the characters' personal trials and development, the story of the house, the murder mystery, all that was interesting. And overall everyone was well written. But I felt like the emotion of the book was deadened. The main characters felt more like just friends and you didn't get a feeling of the growth of their connection at all.I think it was an interesting change for NR, going more into a murder mystery. It had elements of her past work: a past hidden story, blah, blah, blah. I had this feeling though throughout the story that literally a word here, a sentence here to give us a sense of the characters' views of each other and growing interest is what was lacking. I wouldn't say it felt like it was rushed, but rather as if someone else was writing in the style of Nora Roberts.I enjoyed it but I definitely put it down here and there and didn't feel compelled to read it. Usually I devour her books and can't put them down, but this one...I was interested in how it turned out but not really drawn in. Because of that it felt like a very, very long book that took a long time to get going.I liked both characters, though if I'd been Eli I'd have been really annoyed by meddling Abra at the beginning, and she seemed a bit disconnected as a character, her past and her present not meshing into one person. Obviously there was a point to that, that you could see she wasn't happy in her old life, but Eli's character you could see doing both, though being happier in current. Abra - even giving her a hippie name, but then saying she had this totally different kind of life before, just didn't jive. I think that may have been a fatal flaw in the story...you felt for Eli, you believed in him, you believed him as a human being...but Abra seemed disconnected and you didn't always like her. Not that you hated her, but she was irritating at times.Not a bad read, but definitely NOT worth the price that the publisher tagged onto it for the Nora Roberts name...3Decent, but Not My FaveNora Roberts is generally a master of romantic suspense, but her more recent efforts have been a bit lacking in her usual crackling chemistry and dialogue. Eli Landon, ex-attorney and writer, returns to the family manse outside of Boston at Whiskey Beach to recuperate after a rough year: his wife's murder (of which he has been accused) and his grandmother's injury during a mysterious fall at Bluff House. He is tended by Bluff House cleaner, yogi, jewelry designer and general Jacqueline of All Trades, Abra Walsh. I feel that the minor characters, one of Nora's greatest strengths in past novels, were flat, and the plot plodding. Abra and Eli ultimately had so much in common that the obstacles between them were virtually nonexistent and the murder mystery narrative was not nearly engaging enough to compensate. If you're looking for works with a similar setting and feel, I recommend the Dream Trilogy instead.3Terrible - no true Nora Roberts fan will enjoy thisFirst off, something is off with the positive Amazon reviews for this book. It isn't just that some had a different opinion, but anyone that is an avid Nora Roberts fan will hate this book. It was like she phoned it in, and really didn't take time to develop an interesting story. This is so unlike her, and I find it hard to imagine all the positive reviews.First off, she took a plot and a story that could be been told in 300 pages MAX, and made it over 700. What?? It meant it was an incredibly boring read, but made it really easy to speed through it because it was the same conversation, the same "dilemmas" being told by the main characters over and over again. No one would believe that an Abra would exist as a real human. Typically, Nora Roberts likes her heroines strong, but with character which means they have to have at least ONE flaw. This girl was unbelievably perfect. As a couple, they were boring and basically the whole story was just unbelievable, boring and predictable. I am very disappointed in it. I have loved so many books by Nora Roberts, and many in hardback and paperback are still kept so I can re-read them. As a reader that knows her style, I will say this book is a real departure from her typical well-drawn plots and characters. As to the reviews, I am starting to wonder if they somehow get masses of people to give positive reviews in order to "cook the books" I hate to be so cynical, but this was really bad and was not Nora Roberts worthy. I got another one for my kindle by her based on the reviews. I can't wait to see if that is all a big farce too.1Bleh!Ms Roberts no longer has the gift of fleshing out her characters, to make them seem real, to make us care for them. Maybe SHE no longer cares. Ever since Northern Lights, her characters have become 2 dimensional bores. This book no different. Abra was more android than human. Housekeeper to major mansion which she somehow kept immaculate, full of fresh flowers while at same time taught several yoga classes, made jewelry, cleaned other houses, worked as a waitress, cooked/baked from scratch and was still constantly cheerful, never tried, cranky? Please!! And poor morose Eli. How many times did we have to hear "You were in a dark place....Whiskey Beach is good for you, blah, blah!" Story was waste of time, too long, plot not worth mentioning. The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of the 1 I thought it deserved was for the first time I can remember Nora not giving male lead a "mommy" complex. In most of her novels, I find the relationship between the male lead and his mother a tad uncomfortable. Give this a pass!!!2An okay read, though definitely not my favorite storyThis book was okay. Not great, not bad, but okay. Honestly, I thought the story was really goofy about the mansion s secret treasures hidden in the basement and some crazy man secretly breaking into the house at night to dig up the treasure that was rightfully his. Eli s family is very wealthy and yet no one thinks of installing a high quality alarm system? Something other than a code to get in, (which these days practically everyone has) and it wasn t until the end of the book that Eli finally hooked up video cameras to catch the culprit. Eli s character was believable to some extent, but Abra s character seemed too eccentric to be real. She was very cool, but she never seemed to be sure of what she wanted, especially in the end. I felt the chemistry between her an Eli was overplayed at times as well as Abra s whole motherly attitude toward Eli. Caring about someone is one thing but making your boyfriend feel guilty because he doesn t hang his jacket up in the right spot is overboard. Especially, when she s in his house! I know Abra s uniqueness was part of the attraction for Eli but it made her seem kind of flaky at times. I did like the surprise ending of who actually murdered Lyndsay. I thought that part was really good. Not a bad book, but definitely not my favorite.3Slow burn romance, couple communicates, they're scarred but get a HEA fantastic journey!"I learned to accept I was a victim, but I didn t have to stay one."YES! Another Nora Roberts and romance winner! I'm all for her series but this stand alone was fantastic.The story did drag in some parts, but I loved the slow burn romance between Eli and Abra. It was wonderful seeing their relationship go through different stages, how they lived every moment and there was no need to rush. They got to know each other, trust each other, and talk with each other. Couples who communicate are my favorites. Seriously, we don't always need the keep-secrets or misunderstanding clich . Trust and communication are essential for a relationship to work, and Eli and Abra proved it.Yes, yes! I loved them individually and apart. I loved how they developed throughout the book, especially Eli. He started as an extremely broken man after being accused of murdering his wife. Thanks to Abra, he slowly got ride of his walls and became the man he was always meant to be. I absolutely loved him. And her. And both! THEY WERE THE CUTEST! AND FUNNIEST! AND SWEETEST!Another great aspect of the book was the mystery surrounding the book. I guessed the killer of one of the mysteries pretty early on (yes, they're various but they're connected and make sense in the end) but that didn't lower my enjoyment to see Eli finding out.**OVERALL:Though Nora Roberts' newest books had either been a hit or miss with me, there's no denial that when she hits the jackpot, she's the best.'Whiskey Beach' was a wonderful, heartbreaking, mysterious, funny, romantic, lovely, and incredible journey. Eli and Abra won me from the very first page and it was sad to see their story ending. Luckily, I can always go back and re-read it.Definitely recommend for fans of: slow-burn romances, couples who communicate and scarred main characters that finally get their HEA.4Classic chick-lit...and that's not a complimentNow I remember why I never read chick-lit. Competent enough writing (grammar, sentence structure and spelling all A+!). There are the bones of a good story in there somewhere....but geez. Plucky (obnoxious, pushy) heroine saves broken man. This woman can do anything. Anything! Lots of breezes wafting through sensuous curly hair. Beds being humped across the room after a long dry spell. Dancing tongues and fingers. Will they be together? Won't they? Who cares? Hope I can remember not to buy any more Nora Roberts, no matter HOW high her ratings are. Really vapid.3
