What could be more peaceful than a small town nestled in the plush and picturesque Appalachian foothills along the Ohio River? Seemingly nothing unless you actually live in such a place and experience the incestuous nature of the meddling, gossip, and desire that can fester there.
Abby Lane has cornered the market on virtue in her small town, yet there are forces that want to take that innocence away from her. Unfortunately, the depths of deception, often undetected by the pure of heart can be harmful to the unsuspecting soul.
As an English teacher, dreamer and hopeless idealist Abby immerses herself in romantic fiction to fill the void in her reality. There is one author in particular who speaks directly to her heart and she foolishly makes him the model lover by whom all suitors are to be judged. When others try to bridge that gap, idyllic small town America becomes a mysterious place to be.
A Novel Obsession is a great mix of Mystery, Suspense, Intrigue, and romance. It will answer the question:
Is it possible for two people to fall in love having never met?
Also, if you think that men can not write a novel containing Love and get inside the woman's head, you are in for a surprise! This was very well written and I loved it!
Shock! That's what it is. Shock! I am just in awe. This was such a good book. This book had everything. A lonely girl, destined for spinsterhood; a meddling best friend; an untouchable man that knew what real love was all about; a man that was sorely in love with the woman he couldn't have; a new mysterious man to town; a sinister plot that this little sleepy town had never imagined could happen to them!
I loved Abby and her take on weak, spineless men that just had no idea what love was. Abby could not stand a man to act weak around her, like they had no idea how to handle her. Love really isn't that hard, or so she thought!
There were some crazy forces at work in Abby's life. Beau, the man who loved Abby so much that he was willing to do anything to have her. The new mysterious football coach, Bill, who obviously was hiding something from his past. Then there's Daniel, the author that Abby follows religiously. Then there's a best friend that is always looking out for Abby's best interests! All of their lives become entangled on one fateful day. Only one person knew how and when everything was going to happen and he will do whatever it takes to see it through to the end. No matter how clever he thinks he is, he makes one mistake. He doesn't know it yet, but he will soon enough.
Will everyone survive to love another day, another person?
You have to read to see what happens!
I give A Novel Obsession 4.5 out of 5 stars!
