Review: The Liar
The Liar by Nora Roberts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Nora Roberts has contemporary and supernatural romance sewn up. In her latest, society wife Shelby is stunned to discover that her recently-deceased husband had been a liar. He never made a single mortgage payment on their house, the cars, furniture. She's in debt up to her ears and beyond.
She takes her three year old daughter and moves back to her hometown of Tennessee, determined to pay off the massive debt and move on with her life. There she meets Griff, a new-in-town contractor. As their relationship blooms, Shelby discovers even more about her late husband: there's still money out there, and someone wants it. Badly enough to kill.
I wouldn't call this one of Nora's best efforts. While parts were very absorbing, the mystery was thin. I had figured out the "big reveal" by the end of the first chapter. Still and honestly, Nora's worst book is usually better than average. She's spoiled me, no mistake.
The heroine, Shelby, was strong, capable and likable. The hero Griff was *so* perfect. Perhaps one of my favorites.
