Today I’m super excited to participate in the blog tour of ‘The Liar’ by Nora Roberts. ‘The Liar’ is a new book by the third most bestselling author in the world, and as a fan of Nora’s books I’m so thrilled to share my review with you guys. And just look at that beautiful cover!
‘The Liar’ was published by Piatkus on April 16th.
About the Book:
Betrayed by the man she loved. Can she ever trust again? The brand-new novel of love, drama and hope from legendary Nora Roberts.
When her husband Richard dies in an 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 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 forever, 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. 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.
A couple weeks ago I was invited to participate in the blog tour of ‘The Liar’ by Nora Roberts. Since I love almost every book I’ve read by Nora Roberts, I was super excited. I still had some weeks to go before the book arrived but during those weeks I kept looking in my planner and counting down the days before I could finally start reading this book. Sounds weird maybe, but I was just so excited to start reading this one. The book description sounded really amazing and when I was finally able to start reading I closed myself of from the outside world and started.
In ‘The Liar’ we meet Shelby, a twenty four year who just became a widow. Shelby is living with her three year old daughter in a huge house going through her husband’s stuff when she find out that everything she believed in for the last 4 years was a lie. Not only was her husband not who she thought he was, but Shelby is also left with a huge debt. Now everything Shelby wants to do is go back home, to the town she grew up in and the family she loves, back to Tennessee. Back home Shelby soon learns that she never should have left her home town and her family. Her family is more than happy she is back and soon Shelby also meets a handsome carpenter who moved to her hometown just a year ago, Griffin Lott. But not everybody is happy that Shelby is back and Shelby still isn’t free of her past.
I was so looking forward towards this book that I was a little afraid that my expectations would be too high. But fortunately for me this book was everything and even more than I hoped it would be.
‘The Lair’ is a story of family, and small-town life. But more importantly it’s about mistakes we make in life and how to come back from them.
Just like all of Nora Roberts books this book is very addicting. From the moment I started reading I felt myself being totally addicted to the story of Shelby and her family. I just loved it. I loved the way Shelby began reconquering her life and trying to fix the mistakes she made. But most of all I loved the way she interacted with her little girl, Callie and how she did everything to make sure her little girl had a great life. Reading this book almost felt like I was a part of Callie’s life and I just really enjoyed it.
This book was a perfect mix of family life, mystery and also romance. I mean Griffin Lott, is just a perfect male character. I loved how he became enchanted with the two redheads Shelby and Callie and the way he tried to win Shelby’s hart.
Even though this book is 501 pages long, it was still too short for me. I couldn’t get enough of the little town in Tennessee. I even told my boyfriend we should totally move to a small town like that in real life. (You should’ve seen his face!! LOL)
I already was a Nora Roberts fan, but this book made me even more so. I would totally recommend this book. The way Nora writes her books is just amazing, it’s an incredible journey to read through and I can’t wait for her next book.
