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.

  About the Author
Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, the youngest of five children. After a school career that included some time in Catholic school and the discipline of nuns, she married young and settled in Keedysville, Maryland. Born into a family of readers, Nora had never known a time that she wasn’t reading or making up stories. During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write down one of those stories. It was there that a career was born. Several manuscripts and rejections later, her first book, Irish Thoroughbred, was published by Silhouette in 1981. Nora is a member of several writers groups and has won countless awards from her colleagues and the publishing industry. Recently The New Yorker called her “America’s favorite novelist.”

My Thoughts
Wow what an amazing story! I must admit I’ve never read a Nora Roberts book before…ok don’t hate me! Now all I can say is why haven’t I before?

This book is so great! Shelby was taken by her husband who showed her all that life was worth until he was gone. She soon found out he was liar and cheater and simply put she really didn’t know him at all. She is left with debt and all this mess that he left her with, in the mean time she does back home and with the love and support of family and friends she sets out to sort out everything. In the process she meets Griff who catches her eyes but who is he really and how exactly how does he get caught up in these web of lies she is trying to figure out?

I enjoyed the suspensefulness of the novel and the southern setting. This novel has a little bit of everything in it, it has some humor and suspense but I also loved the family aspect of it. I love the whole balance of the different genres mix in and while I did see some things coming there are plenty of things that caught me off guard and made this a gripping read. Nora Roberts is now an author I will seek out. I see why she one of those authors that people auto buy. She is a wonderfully gifted storyteller that draws you in from the start and doesn’t let you go until the very end. And while this read is a tad long don’t let that scare you away it doesn’t drag, there is so much story and going on that you will be done before you know it. If you are looking for a read this summer look no further than The Liar it has something to satisfy the pickiest reader. 


  1. I'm a Nora Roberts fan from way back. Keeping this one in mind.

  2. Count me in as also having never read Nora Roberts. I've been tempted a few times, but lots of her books are in a series and then I get confused about which one is the beginning. This one sounds like a stand-a-lone, so I'm going to pick it up.
