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.… (mehr)

As always, Nora Roberts has come up with another winner. It was a good story with engaging characters. However, it seemed as though this was the first of one of her trilogies rather than a stand alone story. It was easy to see that the supporting characters could have had their own books. The romantic suspense was fairly limited, but still this was a good stand-alone story. ( )

Nora Roberts has another hit. Shelby finds herself widowed with a three-year-old and massively in debt. While going through her husband's stuff she discovers unexplained cash and a few different sets of IDs. The man she thought she married, and was no longer in love with, wasn't at all who she thought he was. After trying to get a handle on all the various lies that he told her, she decides to go back home to her family in Tennessee. That's when the story really takes off for me.

I loved the close relationships that Shelby has within her family. Her mother and grandmother are strong women who are very competent. Her father, grandfather, and brothers are find examples of men who understand responsibility and relationships. Shelby does have some fences to mend with her best friend because her husband had kept her from her friends and family. He was the type to constantly belittle her and, while he gave her access to credit cards, wouldn't let her have any cash. He also kept the family moving from place to place to make it impossible for Shelby to find any friends in the new places they went.

When Shelby gets home, she has to rediscover her strengths and rebuild her confidence. She meets a new man too. Griff Lott is a transplant from up North who has a successful contracting business with his partner who is engaged to Shelby's best friend. Griff falls for her and for her daughter Callie. He is just the sort of strong, loving, reliable man that Shelby and Callie needs but Shelby is afraid to trust herself again.

Shelby is also dealing with the problem that her husband was probably responsible for a multimillion dollar theft of jewelry and stamps and his former partners and a private eye are convinced that Shelby knows where he stashed his loot. All of them follow her back to her home in Tennessee and cause problems for her. When both one of the partners and the private eye are killed, Shelby, Griff and her family band together to protect Callie and Shelby herself. Then there is the jealous local woman who is more than willing to cause trouble for Shelby.

I had a pretty good idea what the plot twist would be by the time I was halfway through the book and was pleased that I had guess correctly. But I don't read Roberts for the mystery. I read her books because of the characters and the relationships. This book overflowed with wonderful characters and had so many wonderful relationships. ( )

Such a disappointment. For the last 15 years I have read every Nora Roberts book as fast as I could, reading even on breaks at work. I usually consider myself lucky if I can stretch it out to two days because they're such a joy to dive into.

I bought this the day it came out and it took me almost three months to get through it. The characters were cardboard, especially her mother.

Nora Roberts has given me hours of joyful reading over the years, so she can be forgiven for an "off" book. I hope this is not the start of a trend. ( )

Hurrah! I'm done!

That was a terrible mistake. I'm obviously not hip to the romance scene, because I had no idea who Nora Roberts is, but the blurb made the book sound so full of mystery and suspense ... noooooooope. Colour schemes for houses and weddings and engagement parties and sundresses, yes, as well as ideas to freshen up your home decor without breaking the bank. (The bright side is that skipping over all such descriptions shortens the reading time considerably.) Then there's the sassy, self-assured heroine, down-to-earth best friend and coterie of handsome men with toned muscles who like fixing things and being in touch with their emotions. Admirable qualities all round, but not my cup of fictional tea. ( )
