TYCR – 28 Jul 2020 – The Obsession – Nora Roberts

Hola, Book Dragons, how are you? If you follow my blog, you know what a crazy fan of Nora Roberts I am. Lol. Disclaimer: I don’t claim to have read all her books or even loved all of them. But I’ve read about 100 or so and a majority of that hundred is among my favorites. She’s one of the top-notch storytellers I have ever seen. The best part? Her writing is simply, magical.

I’m on a re-read of The Obsession because I was missing Xander a lot. 😍

The Obsession – Nora Roberts


“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.

I love Xander. He’s one of my best guys. He’s a total book dragon, too and man, how can you not love him? 😍😍😍 If you haven’t read this book, definitely give it a try.

What about you guys? What are you reading?

I'm a die-hard Book Dragon and also an advanced introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami and cross-stitch.

      1. Hehe – I love re-reading old favorites. Just re-read After the Night by Linda Howard, and now I’m re-reading Breathing Room by SEP – they are all OLD favorites.
