5.0 out of 5 stars A keeper!, 1 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Whiskey Beach (Kindle Edition)
When I read about this novel prior to its publication I decided that I was not so keen on the story as such. I stand corrected! It actually reminded me a lot of NR's 'Sanctuary' (which is on the list of my favourite NR novels), and ended up exceeding my expectations by far. Eli is the kind of protagonist that you cannot help identifying with, even if his life story is far from ordinary. His struggles are easy to relate to, and anyone who has ever been in the position where uncertainty rules one's day-to-day life (for whatever reason) will be able to relate to what he is going through. Yes, he is from a wealthy, privileged background and has a loving family, but his fears work as powerful reminders of the misfortunes that can befall every single one of us.
Although, Abra's character is not as strongly developed as Eli's and I had trouble suspending my disbelief in regards to her background, there is something edgy about her that I really liked. She has made mistakes and is not afraid to change direction in life in the most radical of ways.
It is true that this novel is heavier on the romance than some of NR's other romantic suspense novels, but this is far from off-putting in this instance. There is something refreshing and very uplifting about this novel, although, it begins as a story of loss and includes elements of a murder mystery.
