Desperate for better ratings, radio psychologist Madeline Blair tells her listeners she’s being stalked, unaware that her long-time listener and biggest fan, Seth Brown, will do anything to protect her. When her publicity stunt is revealed, Seth becomes enraged by her deceit and dangerously unhinged.
 
When her friends mysteriously begin to vanish and damning evidence points to Madeline, she turns to private investigator Lizzy Gardner for help. Lizzy knows her way around a murderer’s mind, after surviving her own horrifying ordeal at the hands of a serial killer years ago.
 
As Lizzy closes in, Seth Brown is undeterred. Madeline wanted a stalker and now she has one. Nothing is going to stop him. He’s obsessed.
 
 

My Review 

 
A special thank you to Amazon Publishing and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 
 
OBSESSED#4 in the Lizzy Gardner series, TR Ragan brings an intense mystery into the dark side with strong female characters, for a page-turner suspense thriller.

Madeline Blair, a radio psychologist tells her listeners she is being stalked in order to boost ratings. Seth is the devoted fan who decides he will be her protector until he discovers she is deceiving her listeners to improve ratings, then the real nightmare begins, as he now wants to teach her a lesson. He becomes totally obsessed (and he is one sick guy-damaged and dark). 

When her friends mysteriously begin to vanish and the evidence points to Madeline, she turns to private investigator Lizzy Gardner for help. Lizzy knows her way around a murderer’s mind, after surviving her own horrifying ordeal at the hands of a serial killer years ago.

There is another story going on with character, Hayley as she continues her search to find Brian, who raped her as a teen and killed her mother. (She is obsessed as well, but for the good guys, not the bad, like Seth). She is quite the spit-fire, and a flawed character, with a dark side (who wouldn’t), due to her past; however, she has a softer side as well. Lizzy hires Hayley’s friend Kitally, (liked her character) who proves to be razor sharp, and resourceful for an unstoppable team! 

Loved the gal power, with brains and strength, as these women are kick-ass and can handle any obstacle! With obsessions being the underlying theme, readers see how their minds work and what drives them. I cannot wait to read the other prior books in the series and the next one in the series, to catch up with all the characters. OBSESSED can be read as a standalone, however, after reading you will be hooked.

My first book by TR Ragan and wow, she will knock your socks off! Fans of Karin Slaughter, will love these strong and powerful female characters for a tantalizing crime thriller! 

Looking forward to next installments in the Lizzy Gardner series, Almost Dead and Evil Never Lies (2015).
