The Liar is the perfect title for the latest romantic suspense novel by Nora Roberts. Richard Foxworth, the man who swept Shelby Pomeroy off her feet and whisked her away from small town Tennessee to the most exclusive suburb of Philadelphia, fathered her child, and bathed her in luxury, was one of the biggest liars of all time. When he is declared missing at sea in the Atlantic Ocean, all of Richard's lies and deceitfulness are revealed and Shelby, and her three-year-old daughter, Callie, are left to pick up the pieces.
