Another amazing book by Roberts, she is like the author version of Wonder Woman! Never disappoints. I loved this book, it was a little slow in some points, but overall I really enjoyed it.
We follow the life of Eli Landon who is caught up in the murder investigation of his wife Lindsay. He says he is innocent, and they can’t prove that he did it, yet one detective in particular just wont let it go. In order for Eli to have some form of life, he goes back to his roots, and moves into his grandmother’s home, Bluff House, in Whiskey Beach. It is quite and relaxing where he can focus on writing his book, and putting his life back together. Until he meets Abra Walsh, his grandmother’s house-keeper and friend. She drives him crazy, cooking him food and cleaning around him while he is trying to write. She is pushy, and he doesn’t like it. Until one day he does.They begin a casual relationship, and as things become a little tense at Whiskey Beach, and he is in the police’s radar once more, Eli and Abra need to clear Eli’s name and find out who is breaking into Bluff House and trying to frame them for crimes they did not commit.
Whiskey Beach had a little bit of everything. It had crime-solving, suspense, love and romance and a story of family connection and relationships. I really enjoyed it, even though it was super long and took ages to read (I started it last month) it was well worth it 🙂
Thank you for stopping by, and happy reading!
