Anabel Unraveled by Amanda Romine Lynch

Anabel Unraveled is a story that mixes memories with the present. How the characters remember the events is nearly as important as the events themselves. In retelling their stories, Anabel and Jared must relive the events that brought them together and face the emotional consequences. The book moves effortlessly between characters, times, and places giving the reader a larger picture than the individual characters are able to see.

I never particularly liked Anabel but I got caught up in her story anyway. I even stayed up late to finish one night because I was so close to the end and wanted to see how things turned out. Although Anabel is not someone that I would probably relate to in real life, Amanda Romine Lynch provides her a great back story that explains why she reacts to situations the way that she does. So much of Anabel's life has been out of her control that it is no wonder she grabs on to control when she can.

Anabel Unraveled is an emotional, character driven novel with a bit of mystery and action. Once you start reading Anabel's story, you won't want to stop until you reach the end.

Anabel Martin’s world was destroyed the day her father was murdered. After spending seventeen years of her life trapped on a Top Secret island in the South Pacific, she now finds herself in Washington, DC in the care of her former politician brother and his unwelcoming wife. While she wants nothing more than to be left alone, instead she is thrust into the limelight as a key witness in the Congressional hearings investigating the murder of her father and the very existence of her former home. For Anabel, it’s hard to concentrate on these proceedings when the thing she wants most in the world is for Jared Sorensen to die.

What's even worse is that Jared is the only reason she’s still alive.
