Installment #3: The Liar by Nora Roberts
I’ve previously read 2 other titles by Nora Roberts (The Obsession, Come Sundown) and enjoyed both immensely. She seems to have this natural ability to combine a personal past mystery with a new romance and whilst her strong female lead characters inevitably end up in trouble, they also end up in the arms (and bed) of a handsome, usually-local fella. It’s feel-good fiction, set in great locations and I find them a welcome remedy after a tricky or disappointing read.
“The Liar” appears no different to the traditional Nora recipe, so I hope it’s going to be filled with the same amount of deliciousness I’ve enjoyed before. The blurb reads:
“When her husband Richard is killed in a freak accident, Shelby Pomeroy is devastated. But she soon learns a horrible truth – Richard was a conman and a cheat, and their life together was a lie.
Returning home to Tennessee, Shelby discovers a new sense of strength and freedom. And hope, too, in the form of handsome carpenter Griffin Lott.
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, Shelby realises she is still not safe from his lies…”
If it ain’t broke, don’t change it… I am looking forward to getting stuck into this read over the upcoming Christmas period, and especially at a time when there’s a lot of uncertainty around, one thing I am sure of is that once I get under a cosy blanket with this novel I won’t want to move until it’s finished – GJ
