The Witness

Summary: 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.

With a quirky, unforgettable heroine and a pulse-pounding plotline, Nora Roberts presents a riveting new read that cements her place as today’s most reliably entertaining thriller — and will leave people hungering for more.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’ll say it before- I would listen to Julia Whelan read the phone book. I love her narration style that much.

As I’ve been walking this year, I’ve tried to keep my mind active while my legs have been working hard up and down the driveway- and audiobooks have really come in handy. 


What I Liked:

The cover was pretty and fit in with the book!

Abigail. At times she was a bit too quirky, but I really enjoyed her ways most of the time.

The dynamic between Abigail and Brooks- they had chemistry and I loved it.


Bottom line: 2020 has been the year of walking for me, but I’ve also been enjoying more of Nora Roberts’s books. Put your headphones on and listen to this one!

    • She doesn’t do them all unfortunately ( I wish she did!) But another one I listened to narrated by her was The Collector ( which I thought was pretty good). It’s about a house sitter that sees something out the window she shouldn’t see. And then gets involved in the case!
      I’ll keep my eyes peeled for any more NR books narrated by Julia and try to remember to let you know. Nora has a new book, Legacy, coming out in 2021 that I am excited about.
