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.

And an attempted murder is only the beginning …

Review –

I was very disappointed in this new release by Nora Roberts. Normally I have nothing but praise for her work but this left me flat. From the very beginning it was so cliché and predictable.

Girl from small town is swept off her feet by rich handsome man from big city and end up married. They live in a big mansion and she has cars, jewels, clothes, anything she could want. They have a baby and he could care less and becomes distance.  He travels  alot on his job and one day goes out for a boat ride in a storm and is “drown”. After his death she discovers nothing they had was real. Everything was on credit and she owes over two million dollars in debt. She sells everything and moves back home to the small town she grew up in, still a million dollars in debt. She meets and handsome contractor who falls for her and her daughter immediately. She finds out her “dead” husband had many identities and they were never really married and on top of that he stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry and stamps and now some bad guys think she knows where it is. Of course, the husband is not dead and you know the rest of the story …

Sorry Ms. Roberts, I gave it three stars ***
