The Obsession by Nora Roberts

The Obsession

I’ve always been a fan of Nora Roberts so I jumped at the chance to read this before it is released on the 14th April. I liked that this was really different to anything else of hers I’ve read.



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 has new friends in town who are willing to help, including Xander Keaton – gorgeous, infuriating and determined to win her heart.

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. As her new home is rocked by violence, Naomi must discover her persecutor’s identity, before it’s too late.


The thing I enjoyed most about this book is that it explores the different ways in which violent crime within a family effects each member differently. It was brilliant to see how her brother and Naomi both dealt with their past in vastly different ways. It was good to follow their story from the beginning rather than flashback scenes so that added to my enjoyment of this book.


I find it so impressive that Nora Roberts has written so many books but the attention to detail she has written in this book is astounding. I don’t want to give anything away but once you have read this you will understand. I loved all the characters in this book. Especially Tag! I can’t go into much more detail without giving away spoilers, so a brief summary of this book is all I can do. It is witty, heart-warming, thrilling, gripping and insightful and of course the romance in this book is outstanding.
