Description

The extraordinary new novel by the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Collector.

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....

Enjoyable

I enjoyed the book even though I figured it out mostly in the first two chapters.

It sort of dragged a bit. There were times Shelby got on my last nerve and No doubt it could have been shorten. But I read/listen to books for entertainment and I was entertained so the book did it's job. Some people were looking for a straight up suspense, I like romance with my suspense.

I guess I must not have read/listen to the books this book was supposed to be like because I didn't feel this was a rehashed book or a couple of Nora's older books re-done.

It is not a great story, but a decent one. You won't be disappointed unless you are looking for a block buster.

Enjoyed it but figured it out too early.

Always love her books. I just wish I hadn't figured it out so early. Instead of spending the book wondering "who did it, "I spent the book wondering how the mystery would be solved. Maybe that was her intent, and if so, she succeeded. I still enjoyed the book immensely.

Not a great book.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Usually fans of Nora Roberts Romance/Dramas. But I'm not sure this time.

Has The Liar turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

What three words best describe January LaVoy’s performance?

Good except for Child's.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

The performance was pretty good. But the Southern accents become grating and progressively more difficult to listen to. The story is less than stellar and so predictable.

Like nails on a chalkboard

Between the southern drawl in the baby talk I couldn't even get past one chapter of this audiobook. I may try to buy the book later and see how it fares to read it but definitely not able to deal with the narrator on this book.

So sappy

Pablum. Pure saccharine. Completely predictable. Unrealistically perfect characters. Uninteresting. It got lots of great reviews which, for the life of me, I don't understand. This is a romance novel.

Insufferable

So formulaic, sappy and annoying.
The performance... I couldn't take the baby talk either. And the stereotypical Southern accents and Southern-isms.
What's to LIKE about this book? Not much.This book is basically a Hallmark channel movie. The story is entertaining enough in its simple and predictable way, but is almost too irritating to get through. I'm about halfway through and can't go any further.

Not Worth Your Time

What disappointed you about The Liar?

The story read like it was written for a 5 year old. The narrator was awful with a very FAKE Southern accent. I tried putting it on FAST play but it was still unpalatable. I should have known better than pick a Nora Roberts book in the first place. I don't think any man would enjoy listening to it. Never again.

Has The Liar turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes. Also, certainly from this author or narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of January LaVoy’s performances?

Never never never.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Liar?

Everything involving the kid.

Any additional comments?

Bad bad bad choice. Yuck!

Not Nora Roberts best.

The story was just OK. I found the plot lacked her usual suspense and was very predictable.

15 hour story that should have been 2

It just goes on and on and on. . Like listening to a bunch of chickens clucking in a hen house. It started with potential, but it's like listening to a scenic tour of the desert salt flats, pretty soon it's not hard to guess what's up ahead. Even towards the end when the tension finally starts to build and go somewhere, it prematurely climaxes and just leaves you feeling unsatisfied... Overall it's vanilla.

Omg

Only could stand it because it was to improve my English skills.
It wasn't a crime story it wasn't a love story.
Just 16 hours of pure boredom.
Sugar coated and exaggerated story.
How could this get on New York Times bestseller list?

Nice Story with happy end

It is a nice Story with some good characters. It is quite forseeable were the Story wents. Kelly is just cute. It is a pleasure to discover her little world. The amicable joy among Shelby's family is quite unrealistic. Nevertheless a pageturner and a Story you want to read/hear right to the end.

Skip it

I really like Nora Roberts, but honestly, this book isn't worth your time!
The story is just boring. I kept listening to it, because the narrator made her job pretty good.

Amerikanischer Lokalkolorit und sonst nicht viel

Auch wenn ich von Nora Roberts nicht unbedingt gehobene Literatur erwarte, so bin ich diesmal doch maßlos enttäuscht, um nicht zu sagen verärgert. In annähernd zwei Stunden gab es allenfalls mal ein oder zwei Andeutungen darauf, dass VIELLEICHT Spannung aufkommen könnte. Tatsächlich ergeht sich Frau Roberts in der Beschreibung verschiedener Frauentypen - die sich aber immer wiedermal als derselbe herausstellen: gute Mütter mit einem großen Herzen, hilfsbereit und kinderlieb. Einrichtungen werden beschrieben, die Dialoge sind zu ausgedehnt und tragen nicht zum Fortgang der Handlung bei. Ja, am Anfang eines Buches müssen die Figuren und die Umstände eingeführt werden. Aber nicht zwei Stunden - oder wie ich vermute - 100 Seiten lang.
Die Sprecherin ist tatsächlich der einzige Lichtblick. Frau LaVoy hat eine angenehm ruhige, nicht zu hohe Stimme und arbeitet die Figuren gut heraus. Sie beherrscht auch den "Southern Drawl". Leider geht mir gerade der irgendwann auch auf die Nerven.
Fazit: das Buch ist ein totaler Fehlschlag.
