MFOB featured book: A Novel Obsession
Bookseller, writer, and New Yorker Naomi Ackermann is desperate to write a novel—but doesn’t have a story to tell. When she meets Caleb, a perfectly nice guy with a Welsh accent and a unique patience for all her quirks, she feels she’s finally stumbled upon a time-honored subject: love. Then she learns about Caleb’s ex, Rosemary, who was supposed to be out-of-sight and out-of-mind overseas. But Rosemary is in New York and, worst of all, she works in the literary world.
Both threatened and intrigued, Naomi sets out to find all she can about Rosemary. But when casual Instagram stalking turns into a full-blown friendship under false pretenses—and Rosemary is suddenly both Naomi’s close confidant and muse—what isn’t Naomi willing to sacrifice to write the perfect ending?
