Publisher's Summary

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....

    "One big yawn"

    It was obvious from the beginning where this story would lead. The narration leaves much to be desired. I cringed every time I heard the child's voice. Speaking of said child, she was a perfect little girl and it got irritating real quick. Nora Roberts has written some interesting thrillers but this wasn't one of them. I think it's time to stop supporting Ms Robert's writing factory.

    "My first and last Nora Roberts"

    Sweet love story but would have been suitable if condensed into a mills and boon romance. Speed read type of book. Not sure small town Southern people actually are the way they are depicted..terribly simplistic. Narration can only do so much for a poor story. The little child was horrendous though, disturbing!
    I'd never listened to a Nora Roberts story and I had to do a double take thinking this was some sort of spoof.
    Anyways if you are after a padded weak storyline this one is a winner

    "Rubbish"

    This is the worst Nora Roberts book I have ever listened to. The story was so predictable, really not up to her standard.

    It's Nora Roberts usual feel good story, like wearing a favourite old and comfortable pair of jeans, but no less good for all that. The narration is excellent especially Cally's voice- she can really make her sound like a little girl.

    "BRILLIANT!!!!"

    This story was just brilliant!!! Intrigue, drama, heartache, romance, humor, thriller suspense, it is all wrapped up in this beautiful and gripping story. Heartwarming characters.

    The narrator was brilliant too. She was absolutely a joy to listen too

    "Classic Nora!"

    As always, wonderful characters (plucky female lead, brilliant love interest, wonderful (and frighteningly realistic) family), a villain and above all else, a plot with a twist!

    This is the first audiobook I'd heard January LaVoy and I was pleasantly surprised. The voices were all very well done, the inflection and intonation was captivating and I soon found myself speaking in a "Southern Belle" accent. It annoyed my husband, but that's the sign of a good narrator and I'll certainly be finding other books narrated by January.

    "Enjoyable listen and good story line."

    The story was enhanced by the narrator's ability to give a voice to every character and emotion in the book. This made the unfolding story very dramatic and more compelling to listen to what was coming next. This has been the best audible book that I have bought. This narrator could make a phone directory sound intriguing.

    Story
    "Predictable and not very believable"
    What would have made The Liar better?

    A better, more believable storyline. The heroine is recently widowed and left with an unbearably cute toddler and a load of debts. In remarkably short order she deals with the worst debts (don't they have probate in the USA), is reunited with her loving and morally upright family and meets a gorgeous man. The twists are predictable and I was on a sugar high by the end.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    I have listened to and enjoyed other stories by Nora Roberts but this was not one of them. I would be more careful in choosing a book by her again.


    What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The narrator had a very pleasant voice and did a good job.


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

    Don't know where to start.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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 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.

    "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!

    Story
    "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.
