Book Beginning : Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts

Whiskey Beach


Through the chilly curtain of sleet, in the intermittent wash of the great light on the jutting cliff to the south, the massive silhouette of Bluff House loomed over Whiskey Beach. It faced the cold, turbulent Atlantic like a challenge.

I will last as long as you.

I like this opening sentence. I can imagine the cold, and picture the sweep of light as it illuminates the house and Whiskey beach is suddenly there in my imagination and the story is open with endless possibility.


I know that as I open the latest Nora Roberts that I am in for a good read. Her books are always pure escapism and she has a wonderful ability to tell a good story, and sometimes that's just what I need on a sunny summer's day.

A bit of book blurb...thanks to goodreads



For more than three hundred years, Bluff House has sat above Whiskey Beach, guarding its shore - and its secrets.

To summer tourists, it's the crown jewel of the town's stunning scenery. To the residents of Whiskey Beach, it's landmark and legend. To Eli Landon, it's home...

A Boston lawyer, Eli has weathered an intense year of public scrutiny and police investigation after being accused of murdering his soon-to-be ex-wife. And though there was never enough evidence to have him arrested, his reputation is in tatters as well as his soul. He need sanctuary. He needs Bluff House.

  6. I just like the way the words whiskey and beach sound together. This looks like a lot of fun. It has been years since I read a Nora Roberts novel.

    Thanks for playing along with Book Beginnings!
