What They Say:
When her husband Richard dies in a freak accident, Shelby Pomeroy is devastated. But his death reveals a horrible truth - Richard was a liar and a cheat. Now Shelby is left with the consequences - huge, terrifying debts and mounting proof that her late husband betrayed her in every conceivable way.
Heart-broken but unbowed, Shelby is determined to fix her problems - if only for the sake of her gorgeous little daughter Callie. Returning home to Tennessee and the family she thought she'd lost for ever, she discovers a new sense of strength and freedom. And hope, too, in the handsome form of carpenter Griffin Lott - a straight-dealing man who couldn't lie to her if he tried.
But not everyone is thrilled to see Shelby Pomeroy back in town. And when a shocking act of violence is traced back to Richard's shady business, it becomes clear that she is not safe from him, even in death. With her life in danger, Shelby must face the lies of the past - or lose everything.
What I Say:
I would like to thank Clara Diaz for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
When we first meet Shelby she is devastated at the loss of her husband Richard but the devastation is made worse when she finds out how much she really didn't know Richard at all and how much debt she is in. Shelby sets about getting her life on track and moves back to her home town.
For me the book is really descriptive and although I enjoyed some of the descriptions I also found myself skipping passages. The book was split into three sections and really I didn't see the point of the second one and this became over descriptive and I found myself missing out pages to get to the story.
I have read other books by Nora Roberts and really loved them but I found this too be rather too predictable and unnecessarily long. From a little way into this book I had guest what the story would be and how the love interest would work out. Definitely not the best from this author.
