    4. John moved to another town in the belief he was going to forget his former wife. But he was hunted down by her picture
    whenever he stayed alone. Do your mean "haunted"?

    10. Peter movedwith his wife to the farm of his parents, believing they would warm up to her,
    but they treated her with suspicion, as if the young woman was planning to poisoned them.
    I am not a teacher.

    tedmc,
    I mean "hunted down." John is, of course, not literary hunted down, but symbolically.
    Regarding the verb "warm up", as I understand in BrE you can use "warm" without "up", just warm to someone.
