Book Review: Secret Obsession by Kimberla Lawson Roby

Book Trailer:

Description from Goodreads:

Paige Donahue has always lived in her sister Camille's shadow. As children, Camille had the grades, the friends, and their parents' love, while Paige was left with hand-me-downs and criticism. Now as adults, Camille lives an idyllic life with her husband, Pierce, and her two perfect children in a beautiful home, while Paige is stuck in a small condo with bills she can't afford to pay. But no more. With seeds of doubt planted in both Camille's and Pierce's minds, Paige's plan to steal her brother-in law starts to work. But when he reveals his decision to make his marriage work, a desperate Paige moves from envy to madness. What results from her dangerous scheme is something no one could have imagined.

My thoughts:
I feel like I've read this book before. It was so predictable, that it will be soon forgotten. It is a mixture of many books I've read before and nothing stood out as remarkable or different. Overall it was still a decent read, not either good or bad, just a time passer. There was a small twist at the end that I never expected so that made it a bit better. I've really liked some of her other books I've read, so I will still be checking more of them out. 

I rate this 3 out of 5 stars

  1. I have to agree it was predictable, even the small twist at the end. Her books on Curtis Black are much more interesting.

  2. I agree! I really do like The Curtis Black series, but this and One and a Million were not the best.

  3. ONE AND A MILLION was okay for a novella.
