This is another romantic suspense book that I’ve enjoy by Nora Roberts.
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.
This story is about a young widow who was left with a huge debt by her deceased husband. Not only that, she found out that he’s a fraud and didn’t even know if she marry the correct man with the correct name. It tells us how Shelby try to “restart” her life with her daughter. What makes the book interesting are the secondary characters who happen to be Shelby’s mother Ada Mae and her forever young looking grandmother, Viola MacNee Donahue. The way they talk to Shelby always make me smile especially when they’re talking about their sex life with her. The other interesting character in the book is Shelby’s little daughter, Callie. I like the way she “flirt” with Griffin. She is so cute. Anyway, this book is more of a fun read. Yes, there are suspense in the book but it’s very easy to guess “WHO”. If you enjoy romance book with a bit of suspense in it, you might want to pick this up. ☺️
