A woman is dead and before her trial starts, a bunch of her former friends gather together at a spa, including her sister, the star witness and the fiance Ted, the man on trial for her murder. The killer is apprehended at the end. The premise is interesting enough and the suspense is sustained throughout the book, especially since everyone has something to hide and people keep lying in order to protect themselves or someone else. The author also introduced Alvirah Meehan in this book, who goes o ...more
I read many books by Mary Higgins Clarck, some i liked, others not really! This one is really great!!
I enjoyed the story a lot, and it's one of her best thrillers.

Leila LaSalla, a famous actress, is murdrered and her fiancé, a rich businessman, is accused of her murder. Her sister, Elizabeth Lange, is the main witness to this accusation. She is invited to Cypress Point Spa, where she find herself surrounded by many friends that all seem to have some hidden secrets regarding her sister!

This novel was my first foray into Mary Higgins Clark, and my expectations were pretty high considering she is well known for being the queen of suspense. I didn't find this book to be all that suspenseful or mysterious though, so I was disappointed. I'm not all that clever, and even I had the killer pegged from the beginning! I feel like this book was formulaic and very much like all the other books being produced by the likes of John Saul, Dean Koontz, Stuart Woods, and Heather Graham.

This is one of my favortie mystery books. I never saw the end coming. And thats what makes it great. Its full of twists and turn ands secrets that keep you guessing. It is extremely well done to make the ending exciting. This also makes the rest of the book suspenseful with clues about different characters dropped here and there.
It also draws you in because of the beginning. The young life/conditions lived in it displays for these girls is deplorable really at best. But then they get out and w
I finished this book today and liked it very much. I did guess who had murdered Leila, but still enjoyed how everything was tied together. This one had Alvirha Meehan in it and I am pretty sure this is the first book that she was introduced in. She is quite the character. The only complaint I have and it is a minor one, is that some of the sentences appear to be choppy. But I did like the book and plan to read more by this author.
Mary Higgins Clark è una piacevole scoperta fatta grazie a mia madre, assidua lettrice dei suoi romanzi gialli.
Non ero una fan del genere, ma ho voluto provare..e ne sono rimasta entusiasta, tanto che ho sullo scaffale due altri suoi titoli pronti per essere divorati!

La trama è molto ben articolata, la protagonista è una giovane donna la cui sorella, modella e attrice di successo, è morta in un misterioso incidente del quale viene accusato il ricco fidanzato.
Tutto fa credere che sia lui il colp
Having not read any Mary Higgins Clark since my teens (more than a decade ago), I recently grabbed a few of her works at the used bookstore. This was the first that I picked up.

I'm not really sure if my sleuthing powers have drastically improved, or if this was simply not one of the author's best novels. I had the mystery (or the killer, anyhow) figured out within the first 20 pages. I stuck with it for two reasons: first, I kept expecting some twists and turns to make me doubt my initial hypot
This book was so fantastic! I mean, of course it was, but wow! This is the very first of Mary Higgins Clark that I've read and I'm so happy I started. No going back after this.

Elizabeth Lange is getting read to testify in court against her late sister's fiance and is invited to a wonderfully fancy spa to relax before going. All kind of trouble happens, secrets unearthed, and lots of glamorous characters find themselves in the middle of a murder mystery.

I loved all of the different point of views
I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I'm giving up on this one, since I am a great reader of mysteries, and Mary Higgins Clark is a great writer of mysteries, and so I thought we would be great together . . . but I'm just not that into it. As a librarian, I've often talked to non-mystery-readers who say things like, "I don't get it. Who cares whodunnit? Why should I care who the murderer is?" And I always think (in my head, quietly), what do you mean who cares?!?! What is wrong with you?!?! I ...more
This is a good book for a day at the beach or vacation read. I do like Mary Higgins Clark novels, but was a little disappointed that she didn't make this book a little bit of a mystery because the outcome was a little predictable. Its still an enjoyable read, sister looking to find her killer, lifestyles of the rich and famous, love affairs, a lucky lottery winner, star sightings, and a mystery involving a circle of friends one group trying to free a mans name and another set on making sure the ...more
I have read almost all of Mary Higgins Clark's books. I DO NOT read those by her daughter Carol nor those that were co-authored by Carol. The daughter is NOT the writer that Mary is. I have enjoyed almost all of Mary Higgins Clark's books though there were a couple that seems far too similar. I suppose that can be a problem when you are trying to put out so many books. There was also ONE book where a woman was buried alive and that freaked me out so that particular book rates a little lower than ...more
To understand Leila, you had to have lived that childhood, that trip to New York, the fear and the disappointments.... And you had to know that however good it sounded in people magazine, it wasn't a beautiful story at all." The Leila in question is a gorgeous, successful actress, who has been pushed to her death from her apartment terrace. Elizabeth, her younger sister, is to be a witness at the murder trial of Leila's fiance, a wealthy building contractor.

Since most of the book consists of spa scenes and eating at nice restaurants, it's a must that you actually enjoy reading about these things. For me, it was a breeze. I loved reading about the spa, and it's inspired me to someday get myself into a luxury spa (you know, once I save up the money first...). I can't comment on how easy I felt it was to guess the murderer, since I first read it so long ago and I had much less in the way of detective skills at that time. I will say, though, it was eng ...more

It took me three tries to finally get through this book. I always got suck about 50 pages in. I would get bored and put it down and not pick it up until much later. I guess this time around it was the right time. I picked up the book and didn’t put it down until I was finished. The thing I love about Mary Higgins Clark is how she manages to keep you guessing until the end, although I actually figured out who the killer was way before it was reveale

Another MHC’s story huh? You might be thinking that I’m now back on digging another of hers for one straight month eh? I don’t think I am It’s just that, I miss reading her stories and FYI there’s still a ton of hers in my reading list :P

And about this story, well, it’s just actually a short read. I could possibly finish it in just one sitting, but surprisingly, it took me a week. Well, I have some good reasons for that. First, I was busy with my job; second, I was also working on my so called

I remember REALLY enjoying A Cry in the Night and While My Pretty One Sleeps in my youth, but these novels just don't hold the same magic that they once possessed for me. I've been picking up her novels to gulp down in brief chugs between some of the heavier titles (War and Remembrance, Exodus, etc.), and they definitely serve as something of a sorbet, but nothing more. I have one or two other titles that I'm considering giving my time to (if for no other reason than that I've already purchased ...more
Mary Higgins Clark captures the 'who done it' in a way Christie would be proud of, and this was no disappointment.
Set in the back drop of an exclusive spa the plot twists and turns, pointing its finger at everyone, for a murder the protagonist thinks she already has sewn up.
A little longer and slightly more drawn out than some of Clark's other fictions. Not quite as fast paced and the love interest was a touch more slushy. Still a good read that kept me wondering until the end.

I enjoyed reading this mystery while lounging on the beach! The setting is a high end spa where a cast of interesting characters are drawn together by the owner of the spa. One of the characters is accused of murder by the sister of the deceased. The owner of the spa doesn't think the accused did it. Did he or didn't he? An interesting story unravels with a lot of twists and turns.

This was the first time I read a book by Mary Higgins Clark. I enjoyed this one & will read another.

This is Mary Higgins Clark's sixth novel. Written in 1987. I have to say that Mary Higgins Clark definitely put her best work into this book. The plot intrigued me like no other book of hers I have ever read. In Weep No More, My Lady, Elizabeth Lange, a young actress, is grieving over her sister's death more than one year later. Her sister, Leila LaSalle, was murdered at her New York apartment. Preparing to testify against her dead sister's lover. Following his murder indictment in the case, an ...more

S'all right. I liked it because this was a fast-paced multinarrational text about an off text committed murder. It runs a little like an isolated manor text, but not really. The characters and plot line are a little contrived. The sister of the murdered woman goes to a spa (who does that) to rest up for her testimoney in court (okay, believable) only to find the man she believes (and will be tried for) killed her sister. Instead of leaving immediately she stays and thank goodness (thank goodread ...more
Somehow Mary Higgens Clark always manages to draw me I with her interesting tales of murder, mystery, and suspense. I really enjoyed reading of Alvirah Meeham in one of her earlier roles. I also thought that Elizabeth Lange was a likable character, although her wishy-washing convictions and side love plot seem very unrealistic for her circumstances. Overall, this was a likable and enjoyable read, although not her best novel out there.

Tranen om mijn zusje
het leest lekker vlot. Tijdens het lezen dacht ik meer dat ik een roman aan het lezen was. Hoe Elizabeth tracht uit te zoeken waarom Ted haar zus Leila had vermoord. De personages zijn goed uitgewerkt. En zo'n beetje net over de helft begint de spanning toe te nemen. Toch een thriller. Het was lastig te ontdekken hoe het in ekaar stak, maar uiteindeijk had ik een vermoeden wie de dader was. Toch wel een aanrader!

"Elizabeth Lange is haunted by the loss of her sister, Leila, who died mysteriously. Invited to Cypress Point Spa by a friend, she finds herself confronted by a cast of characters who all had motives for the killing. And she quickly discovers her own life may also be under threat." (From Amazon).

It was a fair mystery.
I enjoyed this book a lot. I actually could not guess the killer until a few chapters from the end. Impressive. I usually have it figured out pretty early on in mystery novels. Interesting reading something from the early 90's after reading so much lately from my time. No cell phones or computers were even talked about.
Cypress Point Spa scheint ein Traum zu sein...direkt an der Pazifikküste, den Tag vollgepackt mit leckerem Essen, Fitness- und Wellnesseinheiten. Welche Frau wäre nicht glücklich, eine Woche dort zu verbringen?

Neben diesen schicken Elementen gibt es aber auch genügen Intrigen, Mord und Totschlag...da scheint ein Aufenthalt im Spa doch nicht mehr so verlockend, oder? Denn die Chancen liegen für alle Beteiligten recht hoch, Opfer zu werden ;)

Der Krimi war anfangs recht langatmig, dann jedoch spann
