Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts (briefly)

As I'm sitting down to write up this book, all I can really think is that I've done this. I've written a similar review about a Nora Roberts book. Don't get me wrong, Whiskey Beach is a perfectly fine book, but there's really not a lot of new things to say about it. To condense a 500 page book into a list of bullet points seems a bit silly, but here you go:

Whiskey Beach is/has:
  • Exactly what you'd expect from Nora Roberts.
  • Easy to read, with a touch of not-really-dramatic suspense. She doesn't hide who-done-it. As usual.
  • Filled with likeable characters, mostly stereotypes. This one has the Lawyer whose heart wasn't in it (-in hindsight), the Earthy Yoga Mama, and the Police Detective Who Knows He's Right, Even if He Isn't.
  • Good, readable, but not particularly memorable.
  • The romance is better than in most Roberts stand-alones, and I particularly enjoyed Abra's honesty, but it wasn't one that had me sighing in happiness at the end. 
  • Has a terrific cover.
And there ya go. I will, of course, continue to read Nora Roberts, but I admit a preference for her 3 and 4 book series to the stand alone titles.


  1. The only Nora Roberts I've read was the Circle Trilogy, just because it had the Celtic element, which I love. It was also ok, but not really memorable.

  2. I haven't read a Nora Roberts book in quite some time -- like you, I always preferred her series and trilogies, though. I guess I got to feeling that her books were all sounding the same after awhile and took a break... Thanks for sharing your review!
