Carly and Rob seem to be everything that a couple should be.
They share fun times with their close friends Craig and
Jenny along with their combined children. These people have
been close friends for years and, on the surface, they are
two very happily married couples. All of that changes one
night in an instant by something so simple. Carly and Rob
are on a camping trip with their children and start enjoying
a bit of wine after the kids are asleep in their tent. They
are a bit tipsy and laughing together over silly things.
Then Carly asks Rob a question.
She wants to know which of their female friends that Rob
would like to be with if he was not with her. As it turns
out, Rob's answer is a game changer for several lives. Carly
is not so easy going as she thought she was when she finds
out that Rob might just have a thing for Jenny, albeit
innocent. From there, things just spiral out of control
leading to the commission of crimes that no one could have
OBSESSION by Amanda Robson is a jaw dropping, absorbing,
terrifying book that
is nearly impossible to put down for any reason once you
begin reading it. Nothing is as it seems at first and, just
when you think you have it figured out, there is
yet another 180 degree turn that takes you to an even darker
Be forewarned, these characters are not nice people. Even
the ones who might seem so at first. It turns out that they
are simply weak willed with plenty of character flaws. When
their true selves start to emerge, you really will not see
it coming because the revelations are such shocking ones. Of
course, that type of plot is always what makes a book so
thrilling, and you will find plenty of thrills in OBSESSION.
The way that the secrets are revealed in OBSESSION will
cause you to gasp and, possibly, make you go back and
re-read something that you just read to be sure that you saw
it the right way. Amanda Robson writes to catch you and
continue to carry you along while allowing each suspenseful
moment to build. It is difficult to believe that OBSESSION
is her debut novel. The timing of each new event as well as
the fact that each one is stronger than the last makes Ms.
Robson seem like a seasoned writer who is intimately
acquainted with her audience.

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.
Perfect for fans of B A Paris and Paula Hawkins.
