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.
