The Liar by Nora Roberts

Published April 14, 2015 by G.P. Putnam’s Sons

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 …

My Thoughts…

It has been quite a while since I have read a Nora Robert’s book.  The Liar just proved to me that I need to get caught up.    Her style is unique and one of a kind.    The characters are always relatable.  The storyline is amazing.  

While Nora is known for her romance novels, this one is a true mystery.    Richard dies on a boat accident and Shelby’s entire world comes crashing down around her.    The man that Shelby married is not the real Richard.  Was she even really married?   I am still not sure who the real Richard is.   The mystery surrounding Richard and his extracurricular activities just intensifies as the story continues.    Who is Richard?  Who is killing or trying to kill the people in Shelby’s hometown?    Shelby handles all this with so much strength that it amazed me.   She deserves to just break down  but holds it all together for her family, herself, and her daughter.   

Now let me get to the romance.   Shelby and Griff.  SIGH!   The romance started with the first eye contact and went fast forward from there.   I love that Griff wanted to take it slow but Shelby took things into her own hands and made her own blue print to follow.    With all the drama and happenings surrounding Shelby, Griff never gives up on Shelby, never lets her down, and is always there to pick her up when things do not go so good.   Not only does he take care of Shelby but he takes care of her little girl.   Falling in love with them both and being determined to make them his family makes him a hero to me.   

I am very excited to share this book with my friends.    Nora Roberts has wrote the perfect romance mystery story.    I definitely recommend everyone picking up a copy.
