The Liar by Nora Roberts Book Summary

In a “sexy, suspenseful read,” #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts delivers “a slow-burning fuse of a plot that ultimately explodes in a nail-biting conclusion.”*
 
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...

The Liar (Nora Roberts) Book Reviews

Good story, but....As a die hard Nora Roberts and J D Robb fan, I've read almost every one of her books (many more than once). While this story is a really good one in theory, it falls short of Roberts captivating storytelling style--so much so that I wondered, at times, if it was penned by a ghost writer. Being from the south myself, I appreciate that Roberts tried to evoke part of the culture of East Tennessee by including the colloquialisms and rhythms that are distinct to the region. Unfortunately Shelby's character too often came across as less than she was, due to her dialog. The characters of Griff and Violet were much more believable. The character development fell short in comparison to other NR books of this genre, as well. Even though I can easily say the was my least favorite Nora Roberts book, I still admire her as a storyteller. Everyone--even our favorite authors--gets off their game now and then. She bounced back and still has my loyalty as a fan!.Score: 3/5

It takes you in . . .From the first words, this book captures you and takes you along until the very last! Ms. Roberts has outdone herself with this story, characters that you can visualize so easily. I would have to say this is my favorite Nora Roberts book!.Score: 5/5

It’s no lie... This is a great book!The Liar is a wonderful book from this mega popular author! In my opinion, it’s one Nora Roberts’ best! Yes, as one of the negative reviews said, I DID predict whether or not her husband was really dead, right from the beginning. Doesn’t mean I will reveal that in this review. Still, this is an exciting, suspenseful scary, unpredictable suspense tale that not only delivers a chilling conclusion, but also features a wonderful, realistic love story! If you’re a fan of Nora Roberts’ golden, perfect brand of romantic suspense, this book is to be treasured!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.Score: 5/5

LIAR is amazingI like stories with plenty of intrigue, romance, bad guys getting their just desserts, and admirable law enforcement thrown in for good measure. Could have done without the sex specifics, but at least they were few, compared to contemporary romance, thus easy to skip. Great read..Score: 5/5

Started good.......A big fan of Nora Roberts and loved the sample which led me to buy the book but the book went on and on and the plot didn't seem to move. Found myself skipping paragraphs to see if the book would start moving. My favorite part was the funny texts. Makes me wonder if this is one of her first books that she rewrote. Doesn't seem like her normal caliber of books..Score: 1/5

The LiarI thought the book was ok .. I haven't read Nora Roberts in a long time and unfortunately I found this story to be predictable, I was hoping that she would add a better twist but it was not tobe. I loved the characters and the small town setting, especially the ladies in the salon. It was a good read nevertheless..Score: 3/5

A nice change.This is the warmest Nora Roberts book in years. An absence of the supernatural, the strong presence of family and friends, and a plot with real struggles make the suspense believable. It's a good read..Score: 5/5

The Liar ...The beginning of " The Liar" has a bit of a slow start, Shelby the main character Is picking up the piecesa of her life after her husband's sudden death and some shocking revelations that come to light as Shelby works to settle her husband's estate. I found the beginning of the book a little boring, but when Shelby moves back to her hometown The Ridge and begins to connect with her friends and family, the book comes to life with rich descriptions of the setting and supporting characters and an exciting love interest. As Shelby finally begins to put the pieces of her broken life back together, trouble comes back into her life in the form of some suspicious visitors in The Ridge. Suddenly accidents, murders and break Ins start happening In the Ridge and every thing that happens is somehow connected to Shelby, her dead husband and the suspicious strangers. This is when the plot of the book really takes off and I couldn't put It down. The book doesn't disappoint with this story line until the end, the conclusion of the big mystery felt a little rushed and flat In my opinion. It was like this huge build up to an event that was over in a few short pages. Overall I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery or a romance, it's worth a read but like I said there are a few things that could of been improved upon. 3 stars.Score: 4/5

"The Liar" reviewI absolutely loved this book! Thank you Nora Roberts for another fabulous read! I could barely put this book down to get some sleep, since I started reading it 5 days ago. But bills have to be paid somehow. A beautiful story of love, of building existing and new relationships, and always the exciting drama, mystery and sparkle I always enjoy from Ms Roberts. Thank you so much and I look forward to hopefully reading the other stories about Emma Kate, Matt and maybe even a spin off about Forrest?? Thank you a million times for filling my evenings with wonderful stories and lowing me to escape into another world for just a little while! A forever grateful fan!
