About The Book
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.
Heart-broken but unbowed, Shelby is determined to fix her problems - if only for the sake of her gorgeous little daughter Callie. Returning home to Tennessee and the family she thought she'd lost for ever, she discovers a new sense of strength and freedom. And hope, too, in the handsome form of carpenter Griffin Lott - a straight-dealing man who couldn't lie to her if he tried.
But not everyone is thrilled to see Shelby Pomeroy back in town. And when a shocking act of violence is traced back to Richard's shady business, it becomes clear that she is not safe from him, even in death. With her life in danger, Shelby must face the lies of the past - or lose everything.

This book blew me away, I love romance novels always have but I also have a huge place in my heart for mysteries and thrillers, The Liar combines everything I love, literally from a strong female lead to an alpha male who has a big soft centre. Add in the mystery and you have my perfect book!
The story is all about the journey of Shelby Pomeroy the country girl who fell in love with a rich business man who gave her a lifestyle of glamour and privilege but it came with a cost, a huge soul destroying cost. The only thing that came from the marriage was her sweeter than sugar daughter Callie. When Richard, Shelby's husband dies in a freak boating accident Shelby finds out that he wasn't just mentally abusive he was a liar, a cheat and he has left her with a mountain of debt that would break anyone.
She drags herself up and gets to sorting the finances and making a life for herself and her daughter she is powerful, she is a mother and she will not be beaten. She decides it's time go home to The Ridge, where her entire family embrace her with love and support. But Shelby has bridges to repair, she has stories and truths to reveal and she has a life to build.
Problem is she also has her husband's past creeping in and threatening everything she holds dear to her. This book is fantastic, its deep, its sweet and it gripping. I fell in love with it all, the setting was magical, the characters complex and thoroughly throughout, they all had their own back story, they all had strong personalities. The family dynamic was what little girls dream of. It was just delicious I was up late reading it.
Swoon appeal ok I love me a book boyfriend, so when you meet Griff who by the way has the full name of Griffin (could you have a cooler name than a mythical creature) you will add him to your own long list of book boyfriends. The gorgeous man is a construction wizard, he has a huge heart and can build a porch swing from scratch oh and did I mention he is protective and bold. He isn't afraid of being himself, he isn't afraid to love hard and go for his dreams. The caring man had my heart from the moment his name was mentioned This book is everything and is definitely my top pick read of April. It is a must read, another smash hit for Nora Roberts and utterly charming.
Will Shelby find herself living the dream or will her past trap her in a nightmare forever? A romance with real heart and a dollop of mystery.
You can not deny this book once you start you will not stop! Addictive and totally absorbing!
