This is one of those books where the phrases "couldn't put it down" and "kept me up late into the night" are the honest truth for me.

I started the book one evening, and read about 25% of the story. The opening chapter hooked my interest, and then the more detailed story started. On the second night, when I continued reading the book, I honestly could not put the book down! I had to know what was going to happen, and I read until late in the night, just to finish it.

A great mix of horror, paranor

This was a free download for my Kindle. I thought I would read the first chapter quickly one afternoon to see what it was like. I ended up reading about 25% and only stopped because I had to start on dinner! Once my son was in bed I was eager to get back to it and I ended up reading well into the night just to see what was going to happen.

This was a gripping read and an absoloute page turner. Chilling, well described, strong characters and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. There is a

Avenging Annabelle has a mix of paranormal and psycho thriller all rolled into one. Starting with a gripping nightmare, the author pulls us into the story with a thorough job at profiling the key characters, then speeds up all the way to the final climax. The plot is well developed, with layers of intrigue and horror unveiled at just the right time to make the reader think he/she knows what is coming, only to be surprised and shocked at new revelations. A riveting read

I was lucky enough to read some sneak peaks of "Avenging Annabelle" long before it was released, but even these snipits didn't prepare me for the finished book.

Mandy White has written a story that compels you to read through the night, if necessary, just so you know how the story ends. She approaches very sensitive subjects with grace and decorum, never becoming more graphic than absolutely necessary to propel the story along. Her descriptions of the characters, as well as the surrounding locale

This book was fantastic. Not the usual book I would read as I love reading chick lit books but I was spellbound by this novel.

I didn't want to put the book down until I had found out what had happen to the little girl and then I couldn't wait to find out what the ending was like. The ending was nothing what I thought it would be, it was better.

I will be recommending my friends to read this, favourite so far this year.

Another book I read in 2012 and loved. This reads like an agonized descent into madness. The characters are well thought out, and the internal conflict of the main character is front and center. The plot has enough turns and twists to keep you on your toes. Very dark. And all too real. Great stuff.

This was a free book through Amazon for my Kindle. It was a very fast read and an absolute page-turner!!! If you can ignore some editing bloopers, then you will find it very well written. The author does a fantastic job of describing the bond of a man and his daughter. Loved this book!

YAAAAAYYYYY! Another editing project is now a published book! Don't miss out on this tight, complete story of a father and his daughter and their special bond.

Dreadful. The book primarily tells you everything that's going on. I don't need a book to list events as they happen, or to list to me the reasons why something didn't happen. A unique idea, I suppose, but the execution was clumsy and confusing.

I have some criticisms about this book although I read it through and enjoyed parts of it. The characterisation of the husband and wife were good and their relationship touching but I felt some of the violence to be excessive and the point might have been better made with less. Especially in the disposal of 'Doug'. I was a little disappointed in the end as I thought they had been through so much that maybe the horror would be over, but there you go. The book would have benefitted from some editi ...more

Wickedly clever tale of the vengeance of a broken father. A little gruesome in places, but one would expect that, given the subject matter. Some unexpectedly explicit sex (married couple), just a little but it seemed slightly gratuitous to me (in the sense of not being needed for the story). Good characters, especially Jim, and Annabelle was also particularly well drawn. The setting and logging work were convincing, and the pace was perfect. Mandy White is very, very good at drawing the reader i ...more

I was intrigued with the opening and wanted to see how the story developed. Unfortunately it didn't hold my attention for long and I had to put it down for long periods of time. However,I was determine to finish reading the story and it did get better halfway through but I was some what disappointed with the ending.

This is a good twisted tale of abduction and murder, too descriptive in the beginning, but stick with it for a different ending to most of these type of stories. It would have made a good 'Twilight zone' story (or am I the only one who loved those growing up?)

ok this book took a while to get into and I nearly gave up. I am glad I finished it. It's odd and a bit supernatural but could not figure out if he was mentally ill from the accident and brain damaged or if they were ghosts.

What a surprising book! Not what I thought it was going to be! A fast read for me because I was on the edge of wanting to know what happened next! Lots of twists! I also enjoyed the family dynamic and connecting with the characters. Highly recommended!
No stars utter rubbish.
