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...

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We love it when a writer blends romance and suspense and keeps our hearts pounding for all the right reasons. Reeling from her husband’s sudden death, Shelby Foxworth discovers that the man she married was an illusion. Richard wasn't a successful businessman but rather a philandering con artist—and his sordid past haunts Shelby as she tries to rebuild her life. The Liar kept us up way too late, enthralled as Shelby uncovers Richard’s deceptions and tries to move on with a new love.
Nora Roberts does it again. Spellbinding, with little twists and turns. All in all, a great story. I know Nora doesn't write many sequels anymore, but I would love to read Forrest's story.
Couldn’t stop reading.
Easy read. Enjoyed!
