Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Classic Nora Roberts, exciting, eventful and romantic. This one is a tad predictable, perhaps not her best, but still a lovely read of a man cleared of murdering his wife but badly scarred. They were in the midst of a divorce when she was killed but although found innocent, his friends and work colleagues turn against him. He flees to his family home in Whiskey Beach. Here, assisted by a local Girl-Friday (note the love interest) and the police, the case is solved. It is a highly satisfying read.

If you like Nora Roberts you might also like to read books by Jane Lovering, Sandra Brown and Linda Gillard.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Eli Landon seemed to have it all until his stunning wife was murdered and he became the main suspect. Despite the case being dropped, he is hounded by a tenacious detective, deserted by his friends and relinquishes his high-flying legal career. It seems so fortuitous that his grandmother’s house at Whiskey Beach is available as a retreat, whilst she recovers from an accident with Eli’s parents. Here Eli meets Abra, who has a hidden past, and as their relationship develops it becomes clear that there are still convoluted and unresolved issues. Another riveting page-turner from the much-lauded Nora Roberts.

Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts

Eli Landon seems to have the perfect life. A beautiful wife, a wonderful house, a dazzling legal career. But when his wife is brutally murdered after confessing to an affair, Eli is named prime suspect. After a year-long ordeal the case is dropped for lack of evidence, but Eli's world is in tatters. Abandoned by his friends, hounded by the media and a detective with a grudge, Eli retreats to the small-town sanctuary of Whiskey Beach. Camping out in his grandmother's atmospheric house by the sea he meets Abra Walsh - compassionate, courageous and hiding secrets of her own. But as Abra and Eli take their first tentative steps towards each other, a deadly enemy is watching them from the shadows. An enemy determined to make sure Eli Landon will never have that 'perfect life' - whatever the cost ...
