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 enjoy Nora Roberts female characters. They know when to be tough and know when they can't do something on their own. For Whiskey Beach I liked how this was Eli's story more than Abra's. He was the main character.
What to say that hasn't been said about Nora Roberts's books? This had a little less mystery than others, the male was the main character, the setting, while important, wasn't as vast as others.....Usually you get a better sense of the town the story takes place in, but this story mainly takes place inside Bluff House. I wasn't surprised by the killer and I didn't get too much of a sense of characters other than Abra and Eli.
I was hooked and once I got started a tore through the book, but I wouldn't say this was on par with other Nora Roberts books.
