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.… (més)

This was an interesting story. I liked the characters. I did find some of the plot predictable. I figured out who the killer was way before the reveal. I did find the authors descriptions of southern people/families a little stereotypical ( )

Nora Roberts books, the good ones, always make me think, "I wish I had a {family/friend/man/dog} like that." This was one of the good ones. It could have done with quite a bit of editing, but the story was interesting and all the characters were lovely. ( )

Shelby's life is in ruin. Her husband is dead, leaving her with debts and it seems he wasn't the man she thought he was when she married him. Even his name seems to be false. So, she packs everything she still owns and returns to her hometown with her daughter. But it seems that someone is out there watching her every move and soon her peaceful hometown will not be so peaceful anymore...

Before last year I had only read one Nora Roberts book, which to be honest feels a bit odd when you think about how many books she has written. But to be fair I mostly read fantasy, sci-fi and crime novels and hers have always felt a bit not my type of book. But lately I have been given a chance to try out various books written by her and this is the latest and I actually thought that this would be the first book by her that I would give four stars to. That was before I hit the 50% in the book and everything started to fall to pieces when it came to the story.

On the plus side with the book we had some really interesting characters; I liked the main character Shelby and her family, her love interest Griff was OK (yes it was a bit to instalove for my taste, but I can take that sort of). The crime/mystery everything to do with her husband worked for me (mostly) but it was all the Hard of Dixie stuff, feuding with an old enemy from school, playing family and the extremely predictable ending that made this book lose stars. There are three ways to end a thriller, a surprising ending (the best), a not so surprising ending (kind of OK ending, you had an inkling of what should happen, but, for the most part, the ending still delivered) and a terrible, terrible predictable ending, the kind that you see miles away. This one had the number three ending and I can take many things like for instance instalove, well no not really, but I can overlook it, kind of. But this kind of ending, no!

So, in the end 2.5 stars because half the book was good and I still liked Shelby and her family in the end.

Thank you Piatkus for providing me with a free copy for an honest review! ( )

Nora Roberts continues to impress me with her ability to make characters that seem real and engaging, even in the midst of mysteries that are intense and fantastical (not necessarily unreal, but the kind of things that happen to Other People). Sure, one of the big reveals at the end of this book was not really a surprise, but that didn't detract from the amazing people in the story the rest of the time. I do think some of the mystery ran on a little long, and I was glad when we got the HEA part, which was why I didn't give the book 5 stars. Other than that, another fine work from a consistently good author who never fails to make me laugh and cry along with her characters. ( )

I listened to the audiobook of The Liar, and I enjoyed the narrator. My biggest beef with the story is that the mystery axis is Very obvious and predictable, yet no one suspects the truth till the "ta da" reveal in the climax. Given that the whole story revolves around this element, it was a bit of a constant irritation. Without this issue, I'd have rated the story a 4. It was still an enjoyable story, and I especially admired the way the hero treated the heroine's young daughter. ( )
