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.

Could have been great. Needed a different narrator

What made the experience of listening to The Obsession the most enjoyable?

I have enjoyed countless NR books and generally can't wait to listen to the story. And have listen to many several times. The narration made this less enjoyable.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There was no emotion. this book screamed emotion in places. It could have been so much better.

While it took me a couple of listens for me to warm up to this book. I didn't really LOVE it the first time I listened to it but since I usually love Nora I decided to give it another try and then multiple other tries. I like it much better but it is still not my fave. I wish it gave me a bit more at the end.
