Publisher's Summary

Within the pages of very rare books, some centuries old, lie the secrets of the paranormal. Abby Radwell’s unusual psychic talent has made her an expert in such volumes - and sometimes taken her into dangerous territory. After a deadly incident in the private library of an obsessive collector, Abby receives a blackmail threat, and rumors swirl that an old alchemical text known as The Key has reappeared on the black market. A number of ruthless people are searching for the book. Some believe that Abby can find it for them.
Abby wants no part of it. But the pressure mounts after a rare-book dealer dies mysteriously. Convinced that she needs an investigator who can also play bodyguard, Abby hires Sam Coppersmith, an expert in paranormal crystals and amber - “hot rocks.” Passion flares immediately between them, yet neither entirely trusts the other. Both are concealing secrets. Both have their own agendas. Sam concludes that the only way to keep Abby safe is to take her to property owned by his rich and reclusive family - a compound in the small town of Copper Beach, on a private island. But small towns are no safer than large cities when it comes to dealing with a killer who has paranormal talents, and a blackmailer who will stop at nothing to obtain an ancient alchemical code....

Something just does not click

Would you try another book from Jayne Ann Krentz and/or Tanya Eby?

YesI like both the Author and Narrator

I am not sure if it's me but i just could not get really drawn into the book

This is an arcane style story with out any mention of the Arcane Society or Jones and Jones etc but this should not matter if the story compels

I also think this will be a series set around the Coppersmith Siblings not the normal arcane past, present and future trilogy format.

Maybe I will feel different after a reread.

It's not as if it's a bad story it's just not one that drags you into it's world deeply . . . at least for me.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Not bad with a twist some may not have seen coming but a bit rushed all the same

What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Tanya's character voices are distinct but as is the case in most books with a male and female lead i think audiobooks would be better served with male & female narrators. This is no reflection on Tanya as All female narrators can't do an excellent full range of male voices just as male narrators can't do female voice really well.

In fact i think female narrators do a more credible job of the male voices as a whole that the male narrators do of female voices

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Movies are never as good as the books . . .

If you like JAK, you will like this.

What made the experience of listening to Copper Beach the most enjoyable?

I have read/listened to a lot of Ms. Krentz's books. I will admit they run together. But they are uniformly well done, consistent in story, with humor and warmth.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not particularly. But this was a book I chose to use in my longer walks.
