Review: (This book was gifted to us for an honest review.)
Abby was born and raised in the small town of Shadyhill. Shadyhill is your typical small town. Everyone knows every single tiny detail about each others lives. This can be both a blessing and a curse. For Abby, small town living has offered a quiet life, but is has also provided in a limited love life.
Substituting fiction for reality Abby fulfills her longing by losing herself in the novels of Daniel Shepherd. Daniel's characters provide Abby with the desire, lust and love she is looking for. But what happens when a mysterious man comes sweeping in shaking the cobwebs loose from this sleepy town? Can reality provide Abby with the love she is looking for?
A Novel Obsession was a beautiful and tastefully written novel. The author did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. Each one was created with maturity and dignity. I never saw the plot twist coming, which was a pleasant surprise and speaks to the author's writing. I did find some of the dialogue a bit stiff. Even in a small town, people aren't that polite. :)
If you are looking for a raw and dirty story than this may not be the book for you. However, if you are looking for a suspenseful romance novel then pickup A Novel Obsession today.
