"What I'm Reading" Wednesday #21

         This week I'm diving into a book I've been looking forward to reading for months...

The Obsession by 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.

Why I Chose This Book / What I Think So Far:
Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors and when I read the blurb for this book, all the way back in November when I was on Barnes and Noble's website doing some Christmas shopping for my grandmother I knew I had to get this book. Waiting five months for its release was tough but I can't wait to dive into this book. So far I'm only about a page in since I've been busy working on my own work-in-progress, but the first page grabbed me and I feel sad that I haven't been able to spend more time reading over the past few days. My plan is to curl up this afternoon and get lost in The Obsession.
