*Starred Review* Despite what his grandmother might believe, Boston attorney Eli Landon doesn’t need a keeper. Eli had come home to Bluff House, his grandmother’s home on Whiskey Beach, to put his life back together. Although he had been cleared of murdering his wife, Lindsay, in Boston over a year ago, some people still believe that where there is smoke, there is fire. All Eli wants to do is get away and put in some serious time working on his novel. But when he arrives at Bluff House, he discovers his grandmother has asked her neighbor, housecleaner/yoga instructor/jewelry maker/massage therapist Abra Walsh, not only to take care of her house, but also to look after Eli. Eli attempts to keep Abra at arm’s length, but she gradually wears down his resistance with her home-cooked meals and kind words. What’s more, Abra firmly believes Eli is innocent, and, with her help, Eli sets out to finally clear his name, and not only for himself. With its compelling characters and irresistible plot, this is a perfect synthesis of romance and suspense, guaranteed to keep Roberts’ fans up long past their bedtimes. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: As the sole author of more than 200 novels, Roberts knows a thing or two about writing page-turning romances, and Whiskey Beach’s number-one spot on best-seller lists is a sure bet. --John Charles
