The Liar by Nora Roberts
This is a romantic suspense novel (Rated NC-17)
(Four and a half Lying Hearts)
The extraordinary new novel by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Collector.
Shelby Foxworth lost her husband. Then she lost her illusions …
The man who took her from Tennessee to an exclusive Philadelphia suburb left her in crippling debt. He was an adulterer and a liar, and when Shelby tracks down his safe-deposit box, she finds multiple IDs. The man she loved wasn’t just dead. He never really existed.
Shelby takes her three-year-old daughter and heads south to seek comfort in her hometown, where she meets someone new: Griff Lott, a successful contractor. But her husband had secrets she has yet to discover. Even in this small town, surrounded by loved ones, danger is closer than she knows—and threatens Griff, as well. And an attempted murder is only the beginning …
Nora Roberts has to be the Queen of Romance. And even after hundreds of books written, she still manages to entertain me every time. I’m not saying every book is a knock em out of the park. But every book leaves me satisfied. This story was no different, and in fact, I was smitten with this story the whole way through despite the predictability of the ending.
I love how she manages to create rich characters and brings them all to life. Hell, I was ready to move to the Smokey’s right along with the rest of them. Parts of me want to know more about other characters brought up in the story. But I have a feeling this is a straight standalone, which is too bad.
If you’ve never read a Nora Roberts (or J.D. Robb) book, you can’t go wrong with any of them. Some of my recent favorites of hers are this one of course. Then there is Chasing Fire and The Collector.
And I really liked this one and the journey that went along with it. She takes her time telling this story and doesn’t rush it for page count. And I could appreciate how that made the characters stand out and ones I’m not likely to forget.
January LaVoy did a wonderful job with the narration. I didn’t have any problems following along.
