Mystery Review - The Liar

Hey y'all, 

Today I'm reviewing The Liar by Nora Roberts. 

Summary from GoodReads: 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 …

Review after the jump! 

Review: I’ll never understand how writers like John Grisham, Stephen King, Debbie Macomber, James Patterson, and Nora Robertson can just churn out book after book without them realizing that the quality is sometimes suffering. I’ve read plenty of great books by Nora Roberts, the Inn Boonesboro trilogy, the Bridal Quartet, but this one just felt dialed in. As with Macomber’s Dashing through The Snow that I read back in December, this plot was just a bit too formulaic. Verdict: If you’re a diehard NR fan, you’ll love it. Otherwise, try another series as this is one of her rare misses. 

Stars: 3/5
