Obsession by Patricia Bradley

Book Description: 

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 Thoughts:
Loved this book.  Who ever wants to have to be stuck with someone who broke their heart?  No one!  Emma doesn't get a choice when she has to work along with her ex Sam in an investigation.  I really liked both Emma and Sam.  Theirs isn't an instant relationship, but one dredged up from the past.
The storyline is great and keeps you on your toes.  I like that the action doesn't stop but continues to pull you in.  The book didn't feel like it was harping on any particular subject or moral, but a couple good ones come through (second chances and forgiveness) and I think different people can take different things from it depending on the stage you are in your life.  This is just one of those don't want to put down books that I love.

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
