Natchez Trace Ranger and historian Emma Winters hoped never to see Sam Ryker again after she broke off her engagement to him. But when shots are fired at her at a historical landmark just off the Natchez Trace, she's forced to work alongside Sam as the Natchez Trace law enforcement district ranger in the ensuing investigation. To complicate matters, Emma has acquired a delusional secret admirer who is determined to have her as his own. Sam is merely an obstruction, one which must be removed.
Sam knows that he has failed Emma in the past and he doesn't intend to let her down again. Especially since her life is on the line. As the threads of the investigation cross and tangle with their own personal history, Sam and Emma have a chance to discover the truth, not only about the victim but about what went wrong in their relationship.

My Review - 3.5 STARS
This is the first book by this author I have read. Suspense laced with a hefty dose of creep is always good and Obsession certainly provides that.
Whether or not I am missing something because this is the second book in the series, I do not know but I did feel a little lost about Emma’s brother being gone.
I enjoyed the relationship between Emma and Sam. They try to fight their old attraction but their chemistry is electric on the page.
Regretfully, I figured out who the villain was very early on. I am not sure why but I think showing their POV is what gave it away. I was quite disappointed by that and feel like in this instance, if that particular view point had been left out, I would not have guessed so soon and enjoyed the story even more.
Bradley came highly recommended so I would say if you are a fan of hers, or even just the genre in Christian fiction, you will likely enjoy it. The faith theme is well done and there is plenty of action, intrigue, and romance!
