Description

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...

    As a die hard Nora Roberts and J D Robb fan, I've read almost every one of her books (many more than once). While this story is a really good one in theory, it falls short of Roberts captivating storytelling style--so much so that I wondered, at times, if it was penned by a ghost writer. Being from the south myself, I appreciate that Roberts tried to evoke part of the culture of East Tennessee by including the colloquialisms and rhythms that are distinct to the region. Unfortunately Shelby's character too often came across as less than she was, due to her dialog. The characters of Griff and Violet were much more believable. The character development fell short in comparison to other NR books of this genre, as well. Even though I can easily say the was my least favorite Nora Roberts book, I still admire her as a storyteller. Everyone--even our favorite authors--gets off their game now and then. She bounced back and still has my loyalty as a fan!

    I love this book I couldn't put it down. I just read it for the second time. I always find things that I missed. It will make you laugh and cry. I felt like I knew the characters. Beautifully written.

    I like stories with plenty of intrigue, romance, bad guys getting their just desserts, and admirable law enforcement thrown in for good measure. Could have done without the sex specifics, but at least they were few, compared to contemporary romance, thus easy to skip. Great read.
