Product Details (as per amazon page)
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.
This is the first book by Nora Roberts that I’ve had the pleasure to read. I know, where have I been, Nora Roberts is the bestselling author of over 200 books?! How can an author pack so much in a book … Nora Roberts knows how.
This book was exciting, dramatic, full of twists and turns. It had romance and some wonderful heart warming moments.
I loved how the storyline showed how you can gain strength from adversity and learn to survive battles one step at a time.
Shelby’s life had certainly been turned upside down when she was flattered by a charming, wealthy man. This charming man however, wasn’t what he portrayed to be.
After the untimely and shocking death of her husband Shelby returns to her hometown in Tennessee to rebuild her life and her relationship with her family and old friends, who she abandoned four years ago after being seduced by the charming Richard.
Shelby is shocked many times by what secrets are unearthed regarding Richard. She becomes fearful for her daughter’s and her own life. Can she escape the past for good?
In between all this drama a friendship from a handsome stranger blossoms for Shelby. Can she learn to trust her feelings for Griff and let love in?
Absolutely, fabulous 5/5* read.
