One evening, a wife asks her husband a question: who else would you go for, if you could?
It is a simple question – a little game – that will destroy her life.
Carly and Rob are a perfect couple. They share happy lives with their children and their close friends Craig and Jenny. They’re lucky.
But beneath the surface, no relationship is simple: can another woman’s husband and another man’s wife ever just be good friends?
Little by little, Carly’s question sends her life spiralling out of control, as she begins to doubt everything she thought was true. Who can she trust? The man she has promised to stick by forever, or the best friend she has known for years? And is Carly being entirely honest with either of them?
Obsession is a dark, twisting thriller about how quickly our lives can fall apart when we act on our desires.
This book was brilliant! The two main characters, Carly and Jenni pitted violently against each other mentally, emotionally and physically until the very end. Both wanting the same thing and thinking they can outsmart each other. But it all comes tumbling down and not what either of them expected!
This book had me hooked from the beginning and each time I thought I knew where the storyline was going...I was proved wrong!! The chapters were nice and short, sometimes just a few lines, which helped to keep interest in the story. The clever twists regarding each character had me continuously guessing who was sane and who was not, and who was the real culprit!
This book was a truly gripping psychological thriller and another good read for 2017!
