the liar nora robertsSummary:

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 …


As a longtime fan of Nora Roberts, I was thrilled when I was asked to read this one and review it. I can say without a doubt it does not disappoint! The Liar is a fantastic standalone that crosses several genres. It has a great romance to it with several steamy scenes; it’s got the mystery/thriller feel to it that keeps you turning pages until the end. Added to that is the amazing depiction of a quaint small town Rendezvous Ridge in the hills of Tennessee with amazing secondary characters that just round the story to perfection.

There is such a feel of home and the love that you get from being wrapped up and supported by family in this story that it leaves you craving a visit with those you love. Without a doubt that sense of home and family is my favorite part of the book!

Along with the feel good feeling and the unique sense of how wonderful a small town can be, you also get a fantastic mystery with a story that keeps the pages turning and leaves you wondering how it will all tie up at the end.

There is no doubt that this story is different from other works by Nora Roberts, but it is not to be dismissed as a great story and I truly enjoyed reading it and find myself wanting more.
