Hooked: A Thriller About Love and Other Addictions by Matt Richtel

I remember when this book was added to the library in Kelso (way back when in like 2006), but it was my first book to check out at Fort Vancouver! The cover was always alluring...maybe you can see why. So anyway, it is about Nathaniel ("Nat," a journalist) and how a mysterious lady who looks like his dead ex-gf (Annie) from 4 years ago passes by his table at a cafe and leaves a note warning him that it will explode soon and he must leave. He is more intrigued by the woman, since Annie's body was never found after she disappeared on a boat, than by the note, and ended up leaving the cafe anyway after her. The second he stepped out of the cafe, everything went boom, and he and a waitress (Erin) are the only ones to survive. Everything is super mysterious and Nat is desperate to find Annie (if she really is alive and who he thought he saw) since he is still deeply in love with her. Things turn sour quickly when he becomes friends with Erin and she tells him about one of her friends that died and his computer addiction. One thing leads to another, and soon Nat and Erin are the number one suspects of the cafe explosion while also trying to understand what is on Erin's dead friend's computer that made him lose his mind. The entire time I read this, I knew there was something I was missing...that the author was for sure holding something back from me! And of course there was. I won't spoil it for you.
