    13. Many of my readers know that I m a fan of suspense thrillers but over the years I ve become quite selective and I don t often venture into new author ground I m a little conflicted about Lovesick whilst I enjoyed the plot the execution didn t really grab me, the storyline itself kept me turning the pages but the writing felt unpolished The plot was engrossing in a morbidly fascinating way When forensic psychologist Lisa Boyers is called in to assess Paul Ducharme, accused of the murder of his be [...]

    14. Lovesick starts off by introducing the reader to Paul, a teenage boy who is found crouched over his best friend Lee s body, covered in blood and holding a weapon Seems like an open and shut case, right It s not Paul claims to have amnesia and not remember what he saw at the crime scene, but never stops proclaiming his innocence Psychologist Lisa Boyers is brought on board to interview Paul about that night, and she begins unraveling secrets about the victim, Lee, and his girlfriend, Wendy, who i [...]

    18. From the cover of Lovesick, I wouldn t have given it a second glance but the blurb was worth looking into I have enjoy reading Lovesick It has two stories One is about a murder in a love triangle and the other is about the character Dr Lisa Boyers past From the beginning of the story, the reader will wonder if this is a love triangle murder Did Paul killed his best friend Lee over Wendy or Did Wendy killed Lee and framed Paul for the murder The ending is shocking As I approached the middle of th [...]

    19. A friend of mine who has exquisite literary tastes highly recommend Spencer Seidel s debut novel, Dead of Wynter, which I loved so when I received the opportunity to review Lovesick I immediately knew I had to read this book I should start out by saying that Lovesick is like two stories in one book and while I had hoped that both would be equally intriguing that was not to be I found myself highly interested in Paul s story while I had to force myself to focus on Lisa s story Lovesick was a qui [...]

    23. Author done a great job with keeping the story going as it was quite lengthy The doctor forensic psychologist personal connection with the victim was quite intriguing The most enjoyable character had to be Lee although he never really was developed Actually, none of the characters really developed in the traditional sense of development as it seemed to be along the lines of self discovery.

    24. I ve read some of Spencer Seidel s work before, and he delivers brilliantly again in this novel He cleverly pieces together a complex story of past and current relationship abuse and domestic violence using multiple story threads The author has clearly done a lot of research, and the characters and situations are frightening real as a result.
