Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"Roberts paints her story with a broad brush, but its colorful canvas, easily identifiable heroes and villains and swirling action add up to another winner for this popular author." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Awesome story"

    This story was totally riveting. The story flowed, kept you going It was hard to put down when I needed to do other things. The characters were very likable and very real. I felt the love story blossomed in a very realistic manner. My one and only problem with this book was the person reading it. She seem to be very monotone and didn't make a lot of changes in the voices between the characters. At first it was very off putting, however the story was so good that eventually that became a noticeable. Even with the bad reading, I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "Bad narrator!"
    Any additional comments?

    The story was OK at the beginning, but got boring about 3/4 of the way through. There was too much about the ins and outs of horse racing, but I could have finished the story if it wasn't for the narrator. Not only was her voice annoying, but she kept pronouncing words incorrectly. She kept saying "show-der" instead of shoulder and "so-ger" for soldier. There were other words she got wrong as well, which distracted from the story. I found myself constantly wanting to correct her. I would recommend reading this book yourself, instead of listening to the audiobook.

    "Hope I can finish it"

    I hope I can get through this book. This narrator is awful!! The accents sound ridiculous. I like Nora Roberts, but she should not get this narrator again.

    "Loved it...but"

    I absolutely loved it, but I wish the ending wasn't so abrupt. It was very disappointing 😥. It didn't do the story justice.

    "Enjoyable - light mystery, bit of romance "

    Story was engaging. True to Nora Roberts Style. The ending felt rushed. But all in all worth the time to listen to.

    "Good story - Terrible performance"

    The over-dramatic and sing-song voice of the narrator made this book very difficult to enjoy. She should stick to reading children's stories.

    "great story"

    I was annoyed by the inflection of the narrator in the beginning, but became drawn into the story. the plot was good and I learned a lot about horse racing. I would recommend this to all. if you don't like the narrator, hang in there, it's still a good thing.

    Story
    "All Characters sound the same"
    If you could sum up True Betrayals in three words, what would they be?

    Great story!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The setting, the characters and the story line


    Did Rose Anne Shansky do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    All characters sounded the same which means you have to listen very close so you can tell who is who. I even had to back up a couple times to ensure I had the storyline correct.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
