Thank you to the publisher for the ARC of this book to read and share my review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Sean Suh is done with killing. After serving three years in a psychiatric prison, he’s determined to stay away from temptation. But he can’t resist Annabelle–beautiful, confident, incandescent Annabelle–who alone can see past the monster to the man inside. The man he’s desperately trying to be.
Then Annabelle disappears.
Sean is sure she’s been kidnapped—he witnessed her being taken first hand—but the police are convinced that Sean himself is at the centre of this crime. And he must admit, his illness has caused him to “lose time” before. What if there’s more to what happened then he’s able to remember?
Though haunted by the fear that it might be better for Annabelle if he never finds her, Sean can’t bring himself to let go of her without a fight. To save her, he’ll have to do more than confront his own demons… He’ll have to let them loose.
Hunting Annabelle follows the story of a young man named Sean. Sean lives at home with his mother, and spends his days drawing pictures of people as he watches them in a nearby park. He used to kill people but after spending 3 years in a psychiatric prison, and being on medication, he tries his best to ignore the temptation. one day while people watching in the park he meets a young woman named Annabelle. They begin talking and hit it off as friends. Sean really seems to like this girl, and she even seems to see past the monster that is Sean and enjoys his company and friendship. They begin to hang around together more and more, and seem to become inseparable.
One day while they are together Annabelle suddenly disappears and Sean is heartbroken. He will do everything he can to find the person who took her and to bring her back to safety. However, everyone suspects him due to his past of killing people. He tries to convince everyone, including the police and his mother, that he had nothing to do with her disappearance. Who took Annabelle and why?
This book was an interesting read with a good plot and storyline, but I found the middle part of the book to drag on a bit. The story picks up a bit again near the end, with a few twists I didn’t see coming, which made the ending quite enjoyable for me.
Thanks for reading my review and I hope you enjoy the book.
