The riveting novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Liar.
“She stood in the deep, dark woods, breath shallow and cold prickling over her skin despite the hot, heavy air. She took a step back, then two, as the urge to run fell over her.”
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. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can’t outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes.
Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she’s ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly 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 the sins of her father can become an obsession, and, as she’s learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.

    Nora Roberts is my favorite writer. She’s a skilled writer and every one of her books are excellent! The Obsession was skillfully written with excellent character development. Strong from beginning to the last page! I want more!

    Entertaining read with some distracting inconsistencies. The main character and her brother are well fleshed out, but others (including the love interest) come across as extremely one dimensional. The writing style makes the main character seem decades older than her supposed mid twenties. Unfortunately the writers syntax and adherence to stereotyped gender roles age what could be a modern thriller/romance.
  • Best book ever

    Might be my fav Nora book. Course I think that with every one I read. It’s fast detailed suspenseful and perfect. I’ve read most of her work including the JD Robb ones. You can’t go wrong reading her books. Linda Connally
