“Crazy eye-opening romantic suspense...my all-time favorite by one of my very favorite authors.”—Fresh Fiction
“The first part of this absorbing book explores how Shelby Foxworth discovers her strength in adversity, and then segues into a charming courtship tale laced with a hint of danger. Proof once more that when it comes to romance, Roberts is in a class by herself!”—RT Book Reviews

Bless your heart!
'The Liar' is not a bad book. However, it reads more like the Harlequin novels that NR wrote in the past. There are the standard NR phrases that she uses in every book. For example, her characters never remain angry, but they hold on to their 'mad.' It's never rain, but 'the wet.' There are a lot of flower, food, furniture descriptions, a prerequisite for any NR novel. I have noticed that the author generally creates one of two types of female characters in her novels, the strong, ball buster independent career woman, or the passive, weak male dominated woman. In 'The Liar' we meet Shelby Foxworth, the latter type, recently widowed, and doing her best to pay down her late husband's debts, while bringing her daughter back to her hometown to start a new life. The plot is slow moving, the romance between Shelby and Griffin is slow and sweet, lacking real sparks, and the suspense is really non-existent.
So many reviewers seem to love anything that Nora Roberts writes, and I truly wish that I could be one of those reviewers. I feel sad that 'The Liar' is just the most recent disappointment from an author I used to love. I judge the quality of a book by how badly I want to do a reread, but this book is one that I will definitely not be reading again.

Shelby returns to her family and home town with her tiny daughter in tow and falls in love with the first handsome man she meets. The whole book is one huge, if readable cliche. It is written in the style of a Hallmark movie and if it were on TV I would probably watch it. A decent,, undemanding summer holiday read.
Shelby is married to Richard, after he dies in a freak accident she finds he's not all as he seemed to be. She has to put her life back together for the sake of her daughter, so she does what she needs to do and then goes back home to start again.
Griff has moved to Tennessee to work with his friend and they've built a reputable building and renovation business. He notices Shelby but realises she's fragile so gives her space to come to terms with what's happened to her, but can he carry on like that?
Things start to happen which puts Shelby's life in danger, who is doing this and what do they want?
A really good read!
Shelby's husband was a douche as a husband and father. I also wasn't overly keen on her childhood best-friend/
An easy read, and re-read in this case, whilst not a favourite when it comes to my collection of Roberts' work it helped me relax for a bit when I found a moment to read, helping me for a bit escape the stresses of the day/week.
