Publisher's Summary

It is 1902. Emily is 16 and blissfully in love with John, two years her senior. Together they are secretly planning a life, when they are brutally driven apart. Denied a man she loves and dominated by a brutally possessive uncle, Emily is devastated when she is cruelly taken advantage of. When a child is born, her life is in tatters. And she cannot reveal the identity of the father to anyone, or there will be a terrible price to pay.

If you don't mind reading a book where you can predict the plot from start to finish, then Lovers and Liars is for you. Don't get me wrong, the writing is good but its far from innovative and a little too sickly sweet for my tastes.

Here's the plot: Emily loves John a handsome farmboy, but her evil uncle Clem hates John and does everything he can to keep him apart. John's well-intentioned Aunt does the same to a lesser degree. But through it all, and despite some amazing prospects Emily LOOOOVESSS John and refused to move on. Likewise John LOOVESSSS Emily and never forgets her. (Yawn).

Frankly I grew bored with this story. Instead of it being sweet and romantic that Emily loves John and vice versa I kept thinking to myself MOVE ON. You people are way too obsessed. Also the author makes liberal use of the 'big misunderstanding' plot. This plot device rears its ugly head at least twice and it was very annoying.

About the time Emily's dad hooks up with John, I began to find my eyeballs rolling in pain at the series of too-good-to-be-true-coincidneces which plague this book.

Three stars. It wasn't bad. But It was far from innovative.

Another brilliant Josephine Cox! Fantastic narative too - really allows you to get fully engrossed in the storyline.
I was unable to put it down at times. Some of the script made me laugh and cry at times. Well worth a listen!
