Another Audible Book

Nora Roberts, Mystery, Thriller, audio book, audible
This will be brief.  

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I joined audible and finished Ready Player One as well as Fierce Conversations within a month I think. After completing those books I started Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.  The best part about that book was the narrator (also the author).  He actually changed his voice for each of the characters.  It was awesome!  The storyline was a bit slow and somewhat predictable but it was enjoyable.  After finishing that book I started this one.  Nora Roberts The Obsession.  It was like Ready Player One in that the narrator was not impressive at all to start.  I also wasn't sure about the storyline and turned it off thinking I would just look for another book when I had a chance.  Thankfully the radio wasn't doing it for me so gave it another try.  The narrator became more engaged as the story went on and the storyline hooked me!  I am only on chapter 3 and new to Nora Roberts, although I know she is very popular, so I am anxious to continue.

Here's a little bit about the book I pulled from goodreads.com:
Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father’s crimes and made him infamous. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can’t outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes.

Update:  I finished the book quicker than I anticipated.  This was my first Nora Roberts book and I will continue to try others.  I love the language she uses, the way she develops the characters and the storyline.  Although I had a feeling about how it was going to turn out, it didn't take away from the suspense.  I didn't want the book to end.
