Recommended by: Wanda Clark, Okotoks Public Library adult fiction co-ordinator

Description: Naomi Carson is a survivor. As a child, her family was torn apart by a shocking crime. It could have destroyed her, but Naomi has grown up strong, with a passion for photography that has taken her all around the world. Now, at last, she has decided to put down roots. The beautiful old house on Point Bluff needs work, but Naomi is looking forward to making a home of her own. But as Naomi plans for the future, her past is catching up with her. Someone in town knows her terrifying secret - and won't let her forget it.

“Roberts is the master at romantic suspense and proves it again with The Obsession. The first chapter was so creepy, sinister and scary I forgot it was a Nora Roberts novel and thought I was reading someone else. Roberts always blends humour into her stories, and I really enjoyed the witty banter between Naomi and Xander. Fair warning, this book is much darker than her others, and deals with rape and abuse, so if those are triggers you may want to stay away, although like all of her books there is always a happily ever after.” ~ Wanda Clarke
