Book Review: A Novel Obsession by Jeff Joseph

Hi all,

Author Jeff Joseph was kind enough to offer to send me a copy of his novel A Novel Obsession for an honest review. I did enjoy this unique story very much and would like to share with you more about his book and my own review.

A Novel Obsession
Jeff Joseph 

Book Description:

What could be more peaceful than a small town nestled in the plush and picturesque Appalachian foothills along the Ohio River? Seemingly nothing unless you actually live in such a place and experience the incestuous nature of the meddling, gossip, and desire that can fester there.

Abby Lane has cornered the market on virtue in her small town, yet there are forces that want to take that innocence away from her. Unfortunately, the depths of deception, often undetected by the pure of heart can be harmful to the unsuspecting soul.

As an English teacher, dreamer and hopeless idealist Abby immerses herself in romantic fiction to fill the void in her reality. There is one author in particular who speaks directly to her heart and she foolishly makes him the model lover by whom all suitors are to be judged. When others try to bridge that gap, idyllic small town America becomes a mysterious place to be.

A Novel Obsession is a great mix of Mystery, Suspense, Intrigue, and romance. It will answer the question:

Is it possible for two people to fall in love having never met?


A Novel Obsession is available on Amazon Kindle and in Paperback 


My 5 Star Review:

Abby Lane is an incurable romantic who dreams of one day meeting the perfect man. She believes that romance doesn't have to wane in a relationship, and wants a man who will romance her from the first day to the last, throughout their lives. Secretly, she has a crush on bestselling romance novelist Daniel Shepperd, because she believes he is the only man who could truly understand her feelings about romance and true love. Unfortunately, her best friend, Julie, thinks that Abby lives with her head in the clouds and is always trying to set her up with men. What Abby doesn't realize is that there can be many layers to people, and sometimes, those with the most layers can be dangerous.

A Novel Obsession is a unique story with complicated characters who keep you guessing. A mixture of romance, suspense, and mystery, this novel has many layers that keep the story interesting and intriguing. I enjoyed this novel very much and I look forward to future novels by Jeff Joseph.


About Jeff Joseph:
In spite of being a husband and father, I have always been a daydreamer. I was that guy in high school algebra with the far away expression on his face, and no I wasn't thinking about how to apply mathematics to save the world. I was thinking about the girl of my dreams and how I would make her mine. True love and the inherent difficulty in finding it are what I daydream about the most, and to me writing a book is merely daydreaming and capturing your thoughts in print. It makes them more real and provides the opportunity for others to share in them as well. And so I hope you will.
