OMG I loved this book!!! Did I mention that I loved this book? I have to be honest and say that in the past I had thought that all Nora Roberts books were all steamy erotic love stories but I was wrong. The first book I read of hers was The Reef (adored that one too!) which was more thriller style with a bit of romance mixed in. With this book it was another thriller with a bit of romance mixed in and I really loved that mixture. You have poor Shelby who finds out her husband has died and then finds out that he was an adulterer and liar... What could be worse. Shelby is forced into a new life and has to deal with a lot of things following those revelations. What made the story great for me was when she moves back home to live with her parents. There she rekindles old friendships and makes new ones, including meeting Griff. LOVE the character of Griff. Such a down to earth guy who will do anything for the people he loves.
There are a lot of twists and turns in this story; just when you think something is the truth something else happens which puts a massive question mark over it again. I just had to keep reading until I got to the end because I couldn't wait any longer to find out how the story would end!
This book definitely gets the full five stars from me, LOVED it! Can't wait to pick up more books by Nora Roberts - the sooner the better!!!!
