Friday Favorites #10: Obsession

Friday Favorites is a weekly meme hosted here, that spotlights a favorite author, book, series, publisher, cover, blog, etc. Basically whatever bookish thing that you love, recommend, and want to tell others about. Just pick one and link up to my post each Friday to share. You can use the graphic I used above, the other one here, or your own.

This week I've decided to spotlight one of my favorite books by Traci Hunter Abramson. She is an LDS author and this is an LDS book, but that plays a small role. Unlike some other LDS books, this one I would actually recommend to all readers regardless if you know anything about Mormons or not.

LDS Romantic Suspense

Goodreads summary:
Pop singer Kendra Blake grew up in the spotlight as the daughter of a prominent actor. Now famous in her own right, she’s had enough with bodyguards shadowing her every move. So when a bomb goes off backstage at one of her concerts, she gives in to her urge to flee. In search of the privacy she’s lacked her whole life, Kendra escapes to a remote cabin in Arizona. Little does she know, FBI agent Charlie Whitmore has been assigned to keep her safe and is staying right across the street.

Stranded in severe weather, the two develop a friendship that hovers on the verge of romance—with Charlie frantically trying to keep his personal and work life separate and Kendra enjoying a new-found freedom from her glamorous world. But when law officials discover that there may be a link between a notorious serial killer and Kendra, she has far greater concerns than her independence.

This was a really fun read - even though it is intense in parts too. I also enjoyed the romantic tension. I reviewed this a while back and need to re-do my review, but you're welcome to read it anyway on Goodreads. I actually own about every book this author has published, but that discussion is for another day. :)

About the Author
(from her website)

I am originally from Arizona and I often visit my family who still resides there. After graduating from Brigham Young University with a degree in business, I moved to northern Virginia where I worked for the Central Intelligence Agency for six years. Though I loved working for the CIA, I finally decided I loved being a mom more. With my husband's support, I started my new adventure of full-time motherhood.

My husband and I have four very active children who enjoy a broad range of activities. They are all rather tolerant of the time I spend on the computer writing, as well as the four months I spend each year coaching the North Stafford High School swim team.

As for my writing career, I started writing over ten years ago after resigning from the CIA, and it took me more than seven years to finally create a manuscript that was worth submitting. (I tried submitting earlier novels and I have the rejection letters to prove it!) The idea for Undercurrents had been rattling around in my head since college, and it took that long for it to finally take shape. Thankfully, submissions have gone much smoother since that first novel made it into print.
