Read in December, 2009

This was the perfect good ole-fashioned whodunnit to read while being wrapped up in the front of the fire poorly. I am pretty new to Mary Higgins Clark but I now know that she can be completely and utterly relied on for comfort reading.

Emily Graham moves in to her ansestoral home in Spring Lake, NJ knowing that over 100 years ago a family member was murdered in that very town. In the following years, two more of her ancestors friends were also murdered and the town now appears to have a copycat murdered over a century later with young girls disappearing on the same dates. The last date that fits with the older crimes is less than a week ago so there is a race against time to find the perpertrator before he strikes again.

As with all MHG's books, there are suspects aplently and you soon learn that, true to form, it could be anyone of them. I love the fact that her books have no gratuitous gore in them, just an old- fashioned whodunnit. I enjoy her books in the same way that I enjoy Agatha Christie's; you know what you're getting and can rely on them.

Thorougly enjoyed!

Jacqui I don't listen to audio books but I do read Mary Higgins Clark. Let Me Call You Sweetheart, Where Are You Know and I'll Be Seeing You are some of my Favourites I am now reading On The Street Where You Live :)
