After reading Heartsick, I couldn't wait to dig into Sweetheart. I had gotten to like many of the characters from the first book and I wanted to see what lay in front of them. Most importantly, I wanted to find out more about Gretchen Lowell's hold over Archie Sheridan; what was it about their relationship that made it so hard for him to let go?

(view spoiler)

Unfortunately, with what Cain revealed toward the end of the book, I found myself no longer interested in what happens to Archie Sheridan because I predict it will be more Vicodin and more daydreams about Gretchen. I know there are three more books to the series, and right now, I don't feel the need to read any more about all that. I also don't care to read any more about hipster journalist Susan Ward. I found her palatable in Heartsick, but in this book, she was just annoying.

I wavered between giving this two or three stars. In the end, I'll stick with three because I did enjoy reading the characters' interactions and dialogues.

I may some day pick up the series again. If I can borrow a copy from the library for free, why not? I still like Archie's partner and friend, Henry Sobol, and I'm still hoping for more clues about Gretchen's crazy, murderous ways. For now, though, I'll be moving on to other books.
