When her husband Richard dies in a freak accident, Shelby Pomeroy is devastated. But his death reveals a horrible truth – Richard was a liar and a cheat. Now Shelby is left with the consequences – huge, terrifying debts and mounting proof that her late husband betrayed her in every conceivable way.
Very much enjoyed this tale, I’m a bit of a closet fan of Nora Roberts – not my usual reading genre but I have dipped in and out of her novels and have always liked them, great storytelling and great characters, mostly with a very emotive edge.
The mystery element in “The Liar” is actually very low key in that I pretty much worked it out very early on which I did not mind at all, I was hooked into Shelby’s story – and the theme that you can never really know a person. When she loses her Husband in tragic circumstances, Shelby discovers he was not all he seemed. In fact he was not a nice man at all. Nora Roberts does a brilliant job of portraying the devastation upon top of devastation Shelby experiences before finally putting her on the path to happiness once more.
Admittedly it dipped a bit in the middle, but what you will get is an immensely well written family drama, the “romantic lead” Griffin was not your standard super good looking hero type and I really rather adored him. Add to that a really terrifically drawn snapshot of small town life as Shelby returns to her roots and enough of a suspense element to keep you intrigued, overall a really great read. One for a Sunday afternoon in the sunshine when you fancy a bit of romance, a dash of intrigue and a darned good yarn.
