JUST TAKE MY HEART was my first book by Mary Higging Clark whom I've heard is an awesome writer. They were not kidding. She IS awesome.

When I started the book, I was a bit confused because there were so many narrators, but, as it went on, I realized that that helped understand better what was going on. I enjoy reading suspense novels, but I don't usually read about the trial. Normally, I read about the investigation. The change was refreshing.

This book starts with the murder of Natalie Raines, a famous actress. Two years later, Gregg, her estranged-and-soon-to-be-ex-husband, is standing trial, being accused of killing her. I was totally involved in the story, almost as much as all those people who watched the trial on TV and debated whether Gregg was guilty or not. I found myself praying everything worked out for him. And as much as I rooted for him, I couldn't bring myself to hate Emily, the prosecutor.

Let me tell you, Natalie's murderer... Wow! That was a SHOCKER.
*COUGHS* Anyway, great book. Totally recommended.
