Staff Picks for the Month of October are“The Obsession” by Nora Roberts, “The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow” by Rita Leganski, and “Daddy’s Gone A Hunting” by Mary Higgins Clark.

The Obsession-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.

Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she‘s ever known.  Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up—especially the determined Xander Keaton.
