    "Jaw dropping!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Secret Obsession the most enjoyable?

    I always wanted to see what Paige was going to do next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Paige because she was so obsessed with her sister's husband that she would do anything to have him.


    Have you listened to any of Micaila Millburn’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No not yet.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes I was sad because Paige was ruining her sisters life but I felt sorry for her because she just wanted someone to love her.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very good book. I think that the narrator did a very good job telling the story. I want to read other stories that she has narrated.

    Story
    "Unbelievable plot from the very beginning"
    Would you try another book from Kimberla Lawson Roby and/or Micaila Millburn?

    Probably not. The storyline was pretty unbelievable from the beginning, so it was hard to really get into. I was really disappointed by the religious angle inserted at the end of the story. If this is the author's MO, I definitely won't listen to them again.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    After listening to the book, no.
