Staff Picks for the Month of April – “Shadow Play” by Iris Johansen, “The Liar” by Nora Roberts, “The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes” by Diane Chamberlain, and “Random Passage” by Bernice Morgan.

“The Liar” – Shelby Foxworth lost her husband.  Then she lost her illusions.

The man who took her from Tennessee to the most exclusive suburb of Philadelphia, fathered her child and bathed her in luxury, was not what he seemed.  As Shelby is shocked to learn after Richard Foxworth drowns in the Atlantic Ocean, he’s left her in crippling debt.  He had a vasectomy without telling her.  He was an adulterer and liar, as fake as the diamond he put on her finger.  And when she tracks down his safe-deposit box, she finds cash, a gun—and multiple IDs with Richard’s picture and other men’s names.

The man she loved isn’t just dead.  He never really existed.

Selling off what she can—and fending off questions from a private investigator who shows up at her door—Shelby takes her three-year-old daughter and heads down south to find comfort in her hometown and her granny’s beauty salon.  She also finds the promise of something more than comfort in Griffin Lott, a successful contractor with a cute Yankee accent.
