Quinn is looking forward to her senior year at Poe University. She has big plans to hang out with her best friend, flirt with a certain boy genius, party at her favorite dive bar and figure out what she's going to do after graduation with her not-so-useful art major. But that's before she meets Luke, a hot townie who's moved back home to help take care of his dying sister. And it's before a weird epidemic sweeps across campus, mysteriously turning people's eyes purple.
Is it an odd side effect from a new party drug?
Is it a rogue virus developed in a campus lab?
Is it the mark of the devil?
Soon the town starts blaming the university and the student religious group becomes frighteningly aggressive in their on-campus accusations. Quinn and Luke are caught in the middle—until a tragic accident forces Luke to reveal the one part of himself he's kept carefully hidden. That he's so much more than the happy-go-lucky boy next door Quinn had believed him to be isn't a surprise…but this truth might be too dangerous for her to handle.
All Quinn wanting was quintessential college experience, a little parting, a little studying, some flirting. Her only problem should be what is she going to do after college. That's how they start out in Heartsick for Quinn, but the don't stay that way for long. Then her roommate Mandy starts getting sick and strange things starts happening. Twilight zone, anyone?
This book had a little romance, I mean just a little. It was more mystery and a whodunit, Quinn is an art student turn Nancy Drew. I could really see this book on Lifetime, with all the little sound effects that goes along when the characters look off in the distance to ponder if they figured out the real person behind the chaos. This book has a lot of chaos and drama that kept my pages turning. It defiantly wasn't your typical college based book and I don't remember ever reading another mystery book based like this either. This one is in a class by itself in my opinion.
I give Heartsick 4 out of 5 stars!
