Product Description

Product Description

SKETCHY and SNITCH are right up there with the very best of YA fiction” – James Patterson, international bestselling author

Secrets. Lies. They smother. But the truth—sometimes the truth is worse. It kills. Leaves blood on your hands.

As the days count down to her eighteenth birthday, Bea feels trapped. Trapped by her dark past, by her parents’ expectations, even by her own dreams for the future. The road ahead is unclear, blurred with secrets and lies.

The only constant, sure thing in her life is Sergeant Dan Daniels. He’s faced with a gang-related murder case and asks Bea to use her “skill” to see and then draw the truth out of the suspect...literally. But when she does, it leaves her with more unanswered questions. And then another teen is shot—clinging for his life.

Time is running out. Can Bea find the killer before someone else gets hurt?

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good sequel. 2 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had pre ordered Snitch after reading & enjoying Sketchy but I was sadly disappointed by this second book in the Bea Catcher Chronicles, I felt the plot was weak & so were the characters, If you haven't read Sketchy then you won't have a clue who Chris & Dan Daniels are.
It took me all of 4 hours to read & that was only because I had paid good money for it & was determined to read it to the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series for older teens! 30 Jun 2014
By T. Dunlap - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Bea Washington is almost 18 and she's looking forward to the time when she can finally be an adult and make her own choices. She's made some wrong choices in her past and she is haunted by them as well as her "gift", a gift that can either be a blessing or a curse. Sergeant Dan Daniels has helped Bea in the past and now she is helping him by using that gift and helping him solve a case. Will she succeed in helping him find the murderer before another person dies?

Bea Washington is a great character. She's gritty and real and she's far from perfect. Bea comes from a privileged background and is a recovering addict. She's done things she's not proud of and she's fallen off the wagon, but she's pulled through and is now a stronger and wiser person. I love her character because she's far from perfect. She's one tough cookie that is much "older" than her 17 years.

This is the second book in the Bea Catcher Chronicles (Sketchy is the first), and although there is a good amount of back story, I would suggest reading the series in order. There's so much you'll miss if you don't! After a great debut, I wondered where the next in the series would go. I was pleased - the story captivated me from the beginning and I found it difficult to put it aside to get things done around here. There's something about Bea's voice that draws me to her character and she is what really makes the series for me. Of course, then there's the mystery and suspense that kept me turning pages and that element of "insight" that just gives the story another added dimension.

I'm not sure I find the relationship with Sgt. Daniels believable. It just doesn't sit well with me. He's got so much to lose and I can't totally understand his choices. My other problem with the story is the ending. It seems out of character for Bea, but maybe the answers will be in the next book. I know I can't wait to read it to find out!!

Would I recommend this to family or friends? YES!! However, even though this is categorized as a young adult book, I would recommend it only to the older/mature YA audience since it contains more mature themes: drug addiction, usage, murder, gangs, language, etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay Read 7 April 2014
By LeKeisha - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I requested this book because I was told that it can be read as a stand-alone, even though it’s the second book in the series. It tells of a seventeen, almost eighteen-year-old, girl named Bea who is a recovering addict. Some time during her stint in rehab, she developed the ability to “see” into people’s deepest thoughts, drawing out the truth on paper. I found this somewhat fascinating, and wanted to know more. Bea is sort of lost right now, and the only person that keeps her focused is a cop named Dan, whom she happens to like (and he in return, even if he won’t admit it out loud). She’s under-age, so there can be no…. you get the picture.

It starts off well enough. We get a glimpse into the typical day for Bea. Her complaints about school, the students, her dad, the house, her mom, etc… She meets Dan at their secret meeting spot, and he wants her to come look at a murder suspect, whom he thinks is lying to cover for someone, and “see” the truth in him and draw it out. In her effort to play the part, she asks one of the “hip” boys at school to show her how to act “gangster”. She gets her first “seeing” down on paper and it gives her a slight headache. She nor Dan knows what she draws down means so she wants to try again, by being put in a holding cell across from the suspect. There she decides that she will find the truth on her own, so that no one will know that he snitched.

Bea is quite a character. She’s artistic and quite witty at times, but other times she’s just whiny. I despise whiny characters. And my God, she’s seventeen, why has she been in rehab and had drunken sex? I get rebellious teens, they come a dime a dozen. But Bea, seems more like an adult to me than a teen. And then there’s the obvious longing between her and Sergeant Daniels, which is just kind of wrong- but right? I don’t know what to feel about that.

This was an okay read for me. I admit, I expected more but that just did not happen with this book. Maybe others will enjoy it more than me, so i’d recommend reading it. Especially if you like a little mystery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining sequel 23 Jun 2014
By J. Prather - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It's been a while since I read Sketchy, the first book in the Bea Catcher Chronicles, but it didn't take me long to become reacquainted with Bea and her amazing abilities. This author has a very easy, readable writing style that makes the pages fly by as we follow Bea in her efforts to maintain her sobriety and solve a crime. Bea is an intelligent, big hearted narrator that I found to be very engaging. The premise is unique and the plot is fast paced and filled with action. The romantic elements are nicely written, giving just the right amount of spark to this gritty story.

This series is best for older teens due to language and sexual content. The author does a great job of portraying Bea's struggles with recovery and her search for direction in her life. The book is in fact a countdown to her 18th birthday, when she plans to celebrate being released from the "shoulds" and being free to make her own choices. The only thing that keeps this from a five star rating is a contrived ending, with Bea doing something that felt very un-Bea like. Otherwise, this series remains an authentic, gritty portrayal of one young woman's struggles to come to terms with her amazing abilities while hanging on to a normal life. I will be eager to read the next installment to see what this young lady will do next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down 27 April 2014
By Michele Carbonero - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Great story, keeps you wanting to read right to the end! Any moms wanting to check out reviews for their teens (or themselves!) this book does not have the typical romance scenes that you will read in a lot of YA books. Just enough romantic interest to intrigue the reader. If you haven't read the first one it delves into her background and struggle with drugs and alcohol, while she works to build back the trust from parents. Bea can't seem to keep herself out of trouble though. Her natural inclination to make things right or help those who've been wronged lead her into a great adventure story that you want to read in one sitting. Read Sketchy, book one of the Bea Catcher Chronicles first. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent follow up book 7 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on

Enticing g, just like Sketchy was. This book didn't hold back any punches yet still a good YA read. Wish characters like Wendell and Chris were developed more, but the light touches are enough to fill in the blanks with reader's own ideas.
The concept we or begging Bea's gift still remains intriguing and looking for more of this in the next book.
