The Witness -Nora Roberts

Book Summary:

Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth Fitch finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. 

Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance security systems programmer, her own protection is supplemented by a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. Unfortunately, that seems to be the quickest way to get attention in a tiny southern town. 

The mystery of Abigail Lowery and her sharp mind, secretive nature, and unromantic viewpoints intrigues local police chief Brooks Gleason, on both a personal and professional level. And while he suspects that Abigail needs protection from something, Gleason is accustomed to two-bit troublemakers, not the powerful and dangerous men who are about to have him in their sights. 

And Abigail Lowery, who has built a life based on security and self-control, is at risk of losing both. 

My Thoughts:

This book was a thriller! I must say that I love books that make you really think but every once in a while I like a good "Beach Read," or just a fun story that requires little thought! Ms Robert's is my go to for a "beach read." At the first of the book you quickly get caught up in Elizabeth’s rebellion. Then the “Great Event” happens and I felt SO bad for her. She lets loose one time and it has deadly consequences and changes her life forever. I loved the persistence of Brooks. What woman doesn't want to be chased after?!? It is easy to love the main characters of this novel and I felt like I could relate to their little town being from one myself. I would recommend this book especially if you want a fun light read!

Happy Reading,
