Kelsey Byden grew up believing her mother had died when she was three. Now, at 26 and freshly divorced, she receives a letter from her mother explaining that she is alive and living on a Virginia horse farm. Deeply strung by lies told to protect her, Kelsey takes her anger out at her college professor father by going to visit her mother, who Kelsey learns spent over 10 years in prison for murder.

But there are more secrets to be found out, and Kelsey decides to stay at her mother's splendid horse farm where she falls in love with horses and the man next door - handsome gambler Gabe Slater. When murdered men and injured horses turn up, Kelsey finds evil lurking where she least expects it, and risks all to restore her mother's honor. Download and start listening now!

    " I will never understand the lengths some people will go to too protect a name or families reputation. To rip apart the lives of an innocent woman destroy a child and not even accept basic responsibility for your actions is horrible and disgusting. "

    " A good 'vacation' read, won't change your life! "

    " I'm a sucker for stories set in the world of racehorses, or horses in general, so True Betrayals had an advantage going in. That said, I wasn't overly impressed with the book. Part of that was that the pacing which, especially in the first half, was slow. The reader gets introduced to all the players but not a whole lot else happens. Secondly, it took me a while to warm up the Kelsey. I didn't dislike her, and was even sympathetic, but she's a very reserved individual and it comes across. Perhaps that's more a testament to Ms. Roberts writing than a flaw, however. I liked the main characters, and the mystery was solid. Some of the "bad guys" are stereotypically bad, but others are not. Overall it was a good, solid effort, but somehow lacking the fire of some of Roberts other romantic suspense novels like Carnal Innocence, or the really fine suspense plotting of books like High Noon. "

    " Sometimes your life is not what you think it is. What if on the day your divorce is final you receive a letter from your mother. Not unusual, except you have been lead to believe she died when you were 3. So begins this romance by Nora Roberts set in Kentucky horse country. "

    " ready good book sorry havent read it before now. brilliant baddy and the love story is realistic "

    " Listened to the audio cassette version in order to check for reported damage to library copy- it played just fine (patron probably needed new batteries in their player-grumble, grumble.) The setting in the world of thoroughbred racing had lots of color and showed that Roberts is comfortable in the horse world so that was OK but otherwise I found it far too long and drawn-out a story. . .really dragged for me. This was my first (and probably only) sampling of the unfathomably popular Roberts. Having said that I will admit that I do enjoy the J.D.Robb books! Go figure. "

    " This was such a great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Myra Boles | 1/1/2014

    " Really good story line that unfortunately could be true. I'm an avid horse lover so this book appealed to me more so than others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 12/27/2013

    " This is my first time reading a Nora Roberts book. The storyline developed well, characters were likeable if a bit transparent. It felt like it moved a little fast in the end, but overall a good, easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy | 12/22/2013

    " Wow this book reminded me so much of NR's "in death" series. The banter of the main characters Kelsey and Gabe was so like Eve and Roarke I kept giving Gabe an irish accent in my mind! Really good mystery and fun romance--excellent choice for a holiday weekend read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Della Wilson | 11/24/2013

    " Good entertainment. Mild mystery with romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 11/21/2013

    " I would say I liked the beginning of the book very much, but by the middle I could tell that it was going to end the same way as the rest of Nora's books. Not that that's a bad thing, who doesn't love a happy ending? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherri True | 11/13/2013

    " This book was fun because it was all about horse racing and the Triple Crown - along with murder, love and everything else Nora Roberts throws in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Ann | 11/5/2013

    " I loved this book. It has many interesting characters, murder and horse racing. Definitely worth reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Francesbean | 12/19/2012

    " I'm not really a Nora Roberts fan. Decent writing, Okay subject matter. A little corny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christel | 8/4/2012

    " A really Good Curl up on a cold day book!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 4/1/2012

    " Adding books to my list. I will have to go back and reread to write an accurate review. "

    " You can never go wrong with Nora Roberts! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rose Hill | 12/6/2011

    " Loved it! Definitely plan to re-read it again! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindi | 10/13/2011

    " Good book. I like how everything came full circle. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 7/16/2011

    " Immerse yourself in the world of championship horse racing. Interesting storyline--not my favourite protagonist, but an entertaining read, nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 5/13/2011

    " I love how Nora can bring you into any world. I could practically smell the horses and the dirt. And I could "feel" Kelsey's pain, anger, frustration. I believe I even vocalized it some. My husband asked often while I read this, "What did she do now?" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 6/6/2010

    " This was quite a bit different....she can just write about anything....and make it interesting! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy Lee | 3/5/2010

    " I have read 3 books from this author and this was my favourite. The romance was better in this book than the others and there were family betrayals spanning 2 generations which made it more interesting. The setting was in a racing horse stud. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it a second time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 2/13/2010

    " This book about love, sacrifice and forgiveness was very refreshing. It was a little slow in the beginning with the character set-up but I enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 10/17/2009

    " I really wish there had been more to the story it was over way too quickly. "

    " Great book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ocean | 4/1/2009

    " Listened to the audiobook while running. Another easy listen. Not quite as predictable as some, but still went as I suspected. Sweet story. Got a little confusing at times, lots of names and I sometimes forgot who was who. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brianna | 9/5/2008

    " good. but felt lacking in some areas of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine Wolffe | 9/2/2008

    " Another of her best. "
