The Liar by Nora Roberts
Published by Berkley on April 14, 2015
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 ReviewIn the end it turns out to be the right move because The Liar is one great read and very entertaining.
I started it by listening to the audio book and got so excited that I continued reading at home and listening to the audio every time I went outside.
Okay, there is one little mistake in the plot, but that mistake is needed to bring some tension into the novel and for the main character a reason why she does what she does. So I´ve graciously oversaw that and enjoyed the book as what it was: a great read.
The author has a wonderful way to show why her characters act the way they do and why they are as they are. Mrs Vi is besides Callie, another fantastic figure in this novel. As Shelby´s grandmother she is the only person Shelby can speak open and free about everything that´s bothering her.
Nora Roberts, born in Silver Spring, Maryland, is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 200 novels. During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write. It was there that a career was born. Several manuscripts and rejections later, her first book, Irish Thoroughbred, was published by Silhouette in 1981. Having spent her life surrounded by men, Ms. Roberts has a fairly good view of the workings of the male mind, which is a constant delight to her readers. It was, she’s been quoted as saying, a choice between figuring men out or running away screaming.
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.” She is also the author of the bestselling futuristic suspense series written under the pen name J. D. Robb. There are more than 500 million copies of her books in print.
