oops! started to answer a question that already had an answer. First thriller great! Second just did not do it for me. The cop was too enamored of this psycho.

thanks! I love these kind of books

They say that into each life
some rain must fall,
and we all know it's true
But there is reassurance to
be found in the rainbows that follow
and in the wonder of people like you

Today is a gift - that's why it's called the present!

Great to learn about new books. I'll go by the library and order Heartsick on Monday night after work and Curves workout.

I couldn't have said it better. Cain is great. I am only about halfway through Heartsick and I am loving it! I got the recommendation from my librarian! I am so glad to have found her. :-)

Her first book was a spoof: very funny. Then, she started writing thrillers. So, yes, same very talented author.

I just checked, Chelsea Cain's new book is called "Evil at Heart" to be released Sept. 1, 2009

From amazon.com:
Gretchen Lowell is still on the loose. These days, she’s more of a cause célèbre than a feared killer, thanks to sensationalist news coverage that has made her a star. Her face graces magazine covers weekly and there have been sightings of her around the world. Most shocking of all, Portland Herald reporter Susan Ward has uncovered a bizarre kind of fan club, which celebrates the number of days she’s been free.

Archie Sheridan hunted her for a decade, and after his last ploy to catch her went spectacularly wrong, remains hospitalized months later. When they last spoke, they entered a détente of sorts---Archie agreed not to kill himself if she agreed not to kill anyone else. But when a new body is found accompanied by Gretchen’s trademark heart, all bets are off and Archie is forced back into action. Has the Beauty Killer returned to her gruesome ways, or has the cult surrounding her created a whole new evil?

Chelsea Cain continues to deliver heart-stopping thrills and chills in the latest entry in this dynamic bestselling series.

I loved Heartsick but I didn't care much for Sweetheart. She has a new one but I haven't read it yet (not sure if it is out!).

I'm confused. Are posts talking about the same author, Cain?

How can Hannibal Lector equate to Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys ?

Her first book was extremely different. It was a spoof of the Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys books. Terrific and funny! Also, nostalgic for those of us who grew up with these 2 and Cherry Ames,...Nurse. I like the first thriller but I did not find the 2nd nearly as good.

For any of those who love to read murder/suspense/thirllers... check out Chelsea Cain! Her main character makes Hannibal Lecter look like a Circus Clown!

She is an amazingly gifted author and has 2 books in her series, the new one will come out in September! I'm biting my nails in anticipation! emoticon
