In a "sexy, suspenseful read," #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts delivers "a slow-burning fuse of a plot that ultimately explodes in a nail-biting conclusion."*

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 is another of her finest novels. There is so much going on and it stays exciting as it progresses. I enjoyed it immensely even though I had a feeling about the ending. I highly recommend it. I liked the Southern background coming from there myself though not small town like this one but I could still relate.

Enjoyed the characters even though the plot was a bit weak and very similar to Obsesssion.
Not sorry that I read it.

Don't have one yet as I will read this next. Hanna recommended this book 5 stars and she is the boss. :)

I have never been a Nora Roberts fan and reading this book told me why. The plot is weak and the red herrings, I'm sure, will not fool anybody. If you have a day or two in which to read a light book and nothing else handy sure pick this one up otherwise move on.

My first Nora Roberts read and the last.
Mediocre, boring characters and too many of them. Trite dialogue, too much description of scenery. An unrealistic plot and an unlikable heroine. The hero and heroine are straight from the Catherine Cookson mould, unbelievably perfect in every way. When she gets her first kiss, the silly cow practically goes into a coma. There are a lot of good writers out there so I suggest you don't waste your time on this one.

Have read ALL this author's books under both names. Enjoyed this but impossible to believe someone can save themselves by sending text messages whilst their phone is in their pocket and driving as well!!!

First book of hers I really didn't like-didn't care for the main character (thought she was weak) and was sick of the whole town feeling bad for her. This probably stems from me prefering this author as J.d. robb and her murder series.

Nora Roberts never disappoints me. This was a great book. It held my interest from beginning to end.

Another good one by Roberts. It did start rather slow, but you see the reason as you read on. Excellent characters and situations. Loved the ending! Definitely 5 stars.

So much filler I forgot the story line. 500 pages, the author was obviously paid by the word.
