The Obsession by Nora Roberts

Hardcover, 464 pages
Expected publication: April 12th 2016 by Berkley

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.

My Thoughts…

Nora Roberts use to be my go-to author.   She seemed to always have new books coming out and I always looked for them.    Then I stepped away from her.    This is the first book from her that I have read in quite a while.    I love that it isn’t a series book, that it is so much more than a romance, and that it is from an author I loved.

The mystery of this book was horrific.     I started to tie it all together.   From Naomi’s father, to her acquaintances throughout her life the clues started to pile up.    For a big part of the book I was sure I knew who done it, boy was I wrong.    Entirely, totally wrong.    When Mason shows up the clues start to build even more and I made another guess.   This time I was right!   

I have to mention the romance.  In true Nora Roberts fashion the romance was amazingly sweet and wonderful.     It was not rushed, the flames grew as the story went on, and went it happened it was wonderful.       I love the romance.  I expect it when I pick up a book from Nora Roberts and she has yet to let me down.  

The Obsession is amazing.   From the New York life to the shores on the West Coast to the amazing characters, including The Uncles, there is nothing about this book I would change.      I recommend picking up your own copy right away.
