The Witness
Daughter of a controlling mother, Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking at a nightclub and allowing a strange man's seductive Russian accent lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman known as Abigail Lowery lives on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she designs sophisticated security systems-and supplements her own security with a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. But Abigail's reserve only intrigues police chief Brooks Gleason. Her logical mind, her secretive nature, and her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something-and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

Loved this book!! My fave so far. Some say this author always writes same kind of book all the time..but that is where her popularity lies. You always know what you're going to get with this author and sometimes that's just what we want. She's comfort food for her fans. If we want scary its King or Koontz...if we want sexy its EL James...if we want soul searching drama its Jodi Picoult...but if you want a good romance with a great story and a guaranteed happy ending then you can't go wrong with a Nora Roberts book.

I really enjoyed this novel. I read it in less than a week. It was emotional, fresh, and believable. I didn't want it to end. I wanted to know and see more of Abigail aka Liz or Elizabeth. Great read. Highly recommend it!

What a book!!! Two days it took me to read this and I wanted more. Nora Roberts can tell a story. The Witness was one of the best books I've read all year and maybe last.

I loved this book. I devoured it in 1 day and then passed it on to my mom. Favourite Nora Roberts by far.

As usual, Nora Roberts has done it again with this book. I love the way she writes her mystery/suspense novels. Perhaps it is just me, but she always has me on the edge of my seat. I loved this book...definitely a "read-again"!
