4 out of 5 stars.
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 …
The Liar by Nora Roberts is a page-turner. I wouldn’t quite classify it as the best Nora Roberts ever as I had a hard time getting into it at first. Once Shelby took her daughter back to her home town in Tennessee, I really started to enjoy the book. The majority of the characters were very lovable, well-rounded, and easy to relate to. The setting in Tennessee sounds beautiful and like a wonderful small town to live in.
I had a feeling/thought about the ending before I got there and was correct in that feeling/thinking, but even being right, it didn’t take away from the excitement of the story.
I recommend it to anyone who is a Nora Roberts fan or likes suspenseful romance books.
