The past is never over. It just gets dusty.

Lisa Grant was a rising star in a prestigious law firm in Lexington, Kentucky, when the firm went bankrupt and she lost her job. With an ailing mother to care for, she takes the first job she can find: research assistant to District Attorney Scott Buchanan. Scott is as disagreeable as he is sexy, and Lisa suspects the only reason she got the job was Scott's fond feelings for her mother, who treated him well when he was just a farmhand on the Grants' large horse farm while Lisa was growing up.

After she misses an important court date, Lisa doesn't get any special treatment from Scott. As punishment, he sends her to organize cold-case files in the basement of the courthouse. What Lisa expects to be a mind-numbingly boring task turns into anything but when a missing-persons case draws her attention. The details of the case are engrossing: an entire family - father, mother, and two children - disappeared without a trace more than 28 years ago. Except that's not all: the mother in a photo Lisa finds could be her own twin.

Before Lisa can learn more, a series of catastrophes strikes close to home, and she realizes that finding the photo has put her in terrible danger. Determined to uncover the truth, she confides in Scott, and their relationship develops into something beyond that of employer and employee. Together they unravel a terrifying web of criminal connections that could shatter what Lisa knows of her past. And it's clear someone will go to shocking lengths to make sure certain secrets stay hidden.

    " A chance review of a old case, gets Attorney Lisa Grant intrigued about an entire family that disappeared. She looks like one of the family members and continues to dig around despite "warnings" to stay away. It turns out she is not who she thought she was. Read the story to unravel the twists and turns. "

    " Good story, a little suspense. Setting is in Lexington. Recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaine Cantrell | 2/11/2014

    " I loved this book. The hero is drool worthy, the heroine spunky, they mystery consuming, and the ending satisfying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pauline | 1/29/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/19/2014

    " Good story, well-told. Steamy sex scenes 3/4 the way through the book as always. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie Kropp | 1/17/2014

    " My first Robards. I feel like much of the exposition was unnecessary and almost nothing of consequence happened until the last few chapters. The book was anticlimactic and kind of annoying. I liked the hero and heroine, but the story was not altogether compelling until too late. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Applefruit | 1/14/2014

    " This is my third Karen Robards book, and so far it's the best one. The plot is good, and the two main characters (Lisa and Scott) are likable. It's not a memorable book, but OK for a one-time read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harriet | 1/13/2014

    " This was a great book, very exciting. There was a lot of suspense and the ending was a total surprise. I gave it four out of five stars because there were parts that dragged a little bit, but I will definitely read more of Robard's books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elvis | 1/9/2014

    " A spine tingling page turner. hard to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nina | 1/4/2014

    " Good romantic suspense novel. I did think the ending was rushed, but other than that it was a good mindless read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Kully maccauley | 12/21/2013

    " I enjoyed the romance and suspense. It was interesting to see it all work out in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 12/17/2013

    " Pretty good - fast read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheri Zuccarelli | 12/7/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. I do feel that Karen Robards goes into an obscene amount of detail. We don't need a whole page telling us about how a house looks, etc. This book could have been 50 pages shorter and still have been just as good. It was a good story though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 12/1/2013

    " SHATTERED is romantic suspense at its finest. Dark family secrets drive a story filled with romance, grief, compassion, and hope. Susan Ericksen, who also reads J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas series, really brings life and emotion to the audiobook version. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 11/17/2013

    " I really enjoyed the story in this book and the characters. I do think this one would be more enjoyable in the non-audiobook format as the lady seemed to drag it out longer than it needed to be! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Me Lin | 11/16/2013

    " This was pretty good even though the ending was a little less than I'd hoped for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Duane Enoch | 10/1/2013

    " Did get frustrated with the characters at times. Could get a little Puttzzz "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karina | 8/1/2013

    " Characters were very real and had a lot of depth. Scott and Lisa made the story even better with their romance. I truly enjoyed reading this and recommend it to anyone the likes reading mystery and romance "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Grandma Jo | 7/10/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donnaleslie | 2/10/2013

    " Another author I read everything I can find. Her books are easy reads but very intriguing. She has me from the first page. Sometimes there is a little more romance in these books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janna | 12/28/2012

    " I liked the main characters, but didn't really like how the mystery was resolved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 8/2/2012

    " I found this one a bit slow. I had a hard time getting into the first couple of chapters. Overall not a bad story. Typical Robards. I liked that the H/H didn't take forever to admit their feelings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 6/7/2012

    " Romance mystery story. I listened to the audio version and it was pretty good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelli Stephenson | 4/8/2012

    " Great little mystery, but there was some cuss words (just watched Fantastic Mr Fox, so now everything will be called CUSS to me) and a pretty steamy 3.5 PAGE long sex scene. The end was quite the twist, wasn't expecting it. "

    " It's been quite a long time since I've read a Karen Robards book. I forgot how much I enjoyed her. That being said, the ending seemed very slapdash, and I just didn't buy the "reveal."

    "
