Secret Obsession by Kimberla Lawson Roby is the tale of two sisters, Camille and Paige, who are so different in nature that at times they could be total strangers. The sisters come from what seems like the perfect upbringing with two responsible, loving parents. Except early in the book it becomes plainly clear that one sister is favored more so than the other.
Camille lives the ideal life; perfect kids, amazing career, and most importantly, she has the dream husband. Paige, on the other hand, lives a life less than ideal; or at least her family seems to think so. Tired of living her life in the shadow of Camille’s. Paige plots to take the life she feels is rightfully hers, starting by ruining her sister’s picture perfect marriage and claiming her brother-in-law for herself.
The sisters’ story is so twisted and juicy it makes it difficult to put this book down. Only when the author starts to revel the truth behind the sisters’ upbringing does the reader begin to gain insight into the torrid relationships that ensue. But by then all seems a lost cause.
I would recommend Secret Obsession to anyone who loves a thrilling story. Kimbrela Lawson Roby does not disappoint with this one!
