Publisher's Summary

The riveting new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Liar.

Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father's crimes and made him infamous.

Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, thousands of miles away from everything she's ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up - especially the determined Xander Keaton.

Naomi can feel her defenses failing, and knows that the connection her new life offers is something she's always secretly craved. But as she's learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.

Thrilling Story of courage, change, and chance.

I would not listen to all the bad reviews. The beginning was the hardest for me; however, other reviews state great enjoyment from the first few chapters. Perhaps, I encompass a much weaker stomach than the average. Vivid imagery, violent in nature is hard on me. The last half is super thrilling and the end was shockingly amazing! Some of the middle can feel a bit long. if you just wait, it gets better, and better, with a climatic ending that wasn't expected!

Brilliant

This book has it all, love, suspense, and murder. This is a beautiful love story with twists and turns along the way to keep you guessing until the very end.

Wish I hadn't Wasted Days on this Audiobook

What disappointed you about The Obsession?

There were too many details about her renovating a house, her adopting a dog, her making omlets, etc. I had originally purchased the unabridged version and got bored with all the detail so returned it. Now this abridged version is just as bad.

What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

The excruciating level of pointless details that in no way contribute to the story.

Which scene was your favorite?

The beginning when she discovers what her father is up to. After that, it goes down hill in a hurry.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
