REVIEW: Sweetheart

Title: Sweetheart
Author: Chelsea Cain
Finished: January 23, 2010
Pages: 328
Published: 2008
Format:  hardback

The second book of the Gretchen Lowell series. This time around Archie finds himself searching for a killer or killers who have been targeting or dropping bodies in the forest. Still haunted by his last encounter with Gretchen and having spent a significant amount of time away from her, Archie finds himself still focusing on the first kill – Heather.

Among everything, Archie finds himself forced away from Gretchen – therefore losing any hope of finding out the truth of all the murders. When the impossible happens, Archie begins devising a plan that could  risk everyone’s life and end his life.

I really enjoyed this second book more than the first. Now that I am familiar with the characters it was easier to jump in and follow. I also enjoyed the conclusion of at least a couple mysteries but also the introduction of a whole new problem. I am looking forward to finally reading Evil at Heart, which I have had since before it was released as an Early Reviewer book.
