For more than three hundred years, Bluff House has sat above Whiskey Beach, guarding its shore--and its secrets. But to Eli Landon, it's home...
A Boston lawyer, Eli has weathered an intense year of public scrutiny and police investigations after being accused of--but never arrested for--the murder of his soon-to-be-ex wife.


He finds sanctuary at Bluff House, even though his beloved grandmother is in Boston recuperating from a nasty fall. Abra Walsh is always there, though. Whiskey Beach's resident housekeeper, yoga instructor, jewelry maker, and massage therapist, Abra is a woman of many talents--including helping Eli take control of his life and clear his name. But as they become entangled in each other, they find themselves caught in a net that stretches back for centuries--one that has ensnared a man intent on reaping the rewards of destroying Eli Landon once and for all...

Review by Library Journal (2013-04-15)

Having been wrongly suspected of his wife's violent murder and with his law career in shreds, Eli Landon leaves his Boston life and heads for Whiskey Beach to write, sort things out, and take care of the family home, Bluff House, while his grandmother recovers from a fall. But spirited, intuitive yoga expert and housekeeper Abra Walsh is a totally unexpected flash of light in his gloom, and as they work together to unmask the true killer, they find a loving, healing relationship neither had thought possible.

Verdict: With faultless plotting, flawless character development, and a remarkable ability to draw readers into her fictional world, Roberts delivers another dazzler. Sleuthily inclined readers might figure out the real killer's identity, but it won't detract from the impact of the story as readers will already have fallen in love with the characters and immersed themselves in the setting. Roberts (The Perfect Hope) lives in Keedysville, MD.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5★ by 4reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by starts out slow but gets very interesting This is not one of Nora's best books. The first 100 pages or so are kind of boring & leave you wondering if its ever going to get better or if the whole book is going to drag out like this. After you get through the boring part, it starts getting very interesting and you won't be able to put it down. It has just the right amount of romance paired with a murder mystery, including two mysteries of attempted murders and a legend of pirates treasure. I'm a sucker for mystery books so obviously I loved having all that in one book.Anyway back to the topic at hand, basically if you don't have the patience to deal with the overly detailed beginning then I wouldn't read it. It is a very good book & I recommend that anyone who likes a good mystery paired with romance give it a shot. It kept me on my toes until the very end. Just give it a chance before you get bored and put it down, it will end up being one of your favorites. 06/04/2014
