The Witness Read Online Free - 16 hrs 18 mins
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.

Nora Roberts is BACK!! OK, I know many of you didn’t realize she left, but over the last few years her newer books have not cut it for me. I found several of her latest stories full of filler and irrelevant content, and the core stories suffered as a result. But in The Witness the story was ti...

4 stars (seriously leaning towards 5 stars)
Well, well, well… What a pleasant surprise!
I’m new to Nora Roberts and, to tell you the truth, I didn’t expect too much. I mean, my neighbor was reading her books while I was crying over Bambi’s mom.
Well I was wrong.
Everything was kick ass good, though...

When I tell people that I read romance, they often ask, "Like Nora Roberts?" I'll confess, I used to scoff at those people. I viewed myself as way hipper or cooler than Nora Roberts... but now that I've actually TRIED her stuff, I'll admit that I was dead wrong.
Nora Roberts can write her ass off...

Don't get me wrong. This book is great. But it could have been so much more.
Though I haven't read any other books by Nora Roberts, I know she's a romance writer, not crime, or thriller, but I couldn't help wishing this book was a crime/thriller. The set-up to the main plot was really really good,...

5 stars – Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
It’s hard to deny the talent and mass appeal of Nora Roberts considering The Witness is her 200th book. I mean...wow! That is quite an impressive achievement and a boon for romance readers. I consider myself a fan of hers, and I especially loved her...

“If I wanted friends, I’d join a book club.”
Yeah, I like this girl. She had an extremely shitty day when she was 16.
No, even shittier than this one.
She witnessed a double murder and became the key to taking down a powerful organized crime family. This led to witness-protection, and more murders...

4 1/2 Stars - Fantastic listening and a good well told thrilling plot. I'm to be honest surprised, but this NR romance impressed me...much
I bought this Nora Roberts as an 16:18 hrs audiobook (narrated by Julia Whelan) already back in March. I honestly thought I was finished a...

WARNING*** Contains Spoilers. I'm a big fan of Nora Roberts but I'm not sure why people gave this book such rave reviews. This book started out with a bang. Elizabeth is a 16 year old genius rebelling against her cold,controlling mother. She meets up with a Russian mafia don and witnesses the bru...

Fantastic read featuring one of the best heroines I have seen in a long time. She was so smart and capable, it was fun to see her try to understand how to deal with the friendly people in her new hometown. The hero was such a great personality, he was funny and easy going but had endless patience...

Nora Roberts has always been THAT author for me. The author that you know no matter what mood you were in, her books would be just right. But for some unexplainable reason, I have not read one of her books in such a long time. So when I received The Witness as a gift from my wonderful friend, I...
