Publisher's Summary

Paige Donahue has always lived in her sister Camille's shadow. As children, Camille had the grades, the friends, and their parents' love, while Paige was left with hand-me-downs and criticism. Now, as adults, Camille lives an idyllic life with her husband, Pierce, and her two perfect children in a beautiful home, while Paige is stuck in a small condo with bills she can't afford to pay. But no more. With seeds of doubt planted in both Camille's and Pierce's minds, Paige's plan to steal her brother-in-law starts to work. But when he reveals his decision to make his marriage work, a desperate Paige moves from envy to madness. What results from her dangerous scheme is something no one could have imagined.

Good story!

I thought this story was interesting and it kept me riveted. I didn't think the ending was all that great, but overall, I thought it was a good read.

The title doesn't fit the read

I struggle with this book because I didn't like the moral of the story. This book was not a good plot.

Predictable but recommended

At first I was excited about this book because she is one of my favorite authors. Unfortunately, as the book progressed, it became boring and predictable. Overall, I recommend this read to others

Best out of many

I've read plenty of books by this author and she has really outdone herself. I love how redeemable Pierce is and it reminds me that Christ really does still create MEN with hearts after His own. Even Camilla's love endures for them both. Gives me hope & reminds me that the goodness God gives is unbreakable & how much I love my husband.

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.
