Read a book you can read in one calendar day.

I know that this book is not literary in any way, and it is probably not as good as most books I gave three stars to, but I'm giving this a 3.5 because, you know what?

just so we're clear.

I know these books are cozy mysteries. I know they are predictable. I know that I have read 80% of this woman's collected works and can guess the whodunit at like 20%. I know that the writing isn't good. Guess what?

Because I breezed through this cozy mystery in less t

I really enjoyed this book until the last page or two, and then I remembered being disappointed by one of the Clarks before.

Mary Higgins Clark obviously does her research and she sets a well paced story with interesting characters. Her process of educating the reader is integral to the narrative rather than a thinly veiled attempt to show us how much she knows. (Thank you so much!)

The last "note", however, was as anticlimactic as possible. Had she placeced that tidbit a littel earlier, it would

We have a winner. This book is officially my favorite Mary Higgins Clark. ❤️❤️

What an intriguing book full of so many secrets and lies, fantastic characters and historical elements.

Well written suspense.

Reread for book club- good mystery and I had forgotten everything. The climax was saved until the very last few pages and everything seemed to resolve quickly. Logically the motives seemed a little far fetched, but was a still a good Mary Higgins Clark book.

Read in 2005: One of my favorite suspense/mysteries! Full of thrills and ghost stories, I had to keep my roomate up with me just to go to the bathroom afterwards.

This is my all-time favorite Mary Higgins Clark book. What I like most about Clark is that I can count on the book to be clean, yet entertaining--a combination that's hard to come by these days. This one is set along the northeast coastline and has a windswept, cottage feel. ...more

This book was so amazing! I had no idea how it was supposed to end and when Mary finally wrapped it up I was blown away! She will always be my favorite author!

This was one of my favorite authors when I was a teenager and I think I read this back then as it seems familiar. All I can say now that doesn't give me the same "wow" feeling! But fast paced satisfactory story! ...more

I've always been a fan of Mary Higgins Clark and this book just increases my love for her work. Remember Me is a beautifully written novel that blends intrigue, suspense and drama into a delightful little package.

The story centers on Menley Nichols, the wife of the high-profile defense attorney Adam Nichols. She is plagued by the unfortunate death of her two-year-old son Bobby, and suffers from Post-traumatic stress disorder. Hoping to mend their failing marriage, the couple move into Remember

The ending was a bit of a surprise. Not about Scott, at all. He was pretty obviously repulsive throughout the entire book, despite the author's attempts to make him seem charming. But the twist of the girl mastermind behind the whole thing was a bit of a shock. Truthfully, I kept waiting for Adam to be the bad guy in this. Honestly, I found him almost intolerable the entire story. I was completely annoyed with him not trusting his wife at all. Especially when it came to the care of their

LOVED this! Restored my faith in the mystery genre!

This review will be a half talking about what I liked about the book and half complaining about the mystery genre.

Here are some things about the mystery genre that are way overused and I’ve started to hate that this book does not rely on
1. Melodramatic and stupid characters. Especially more in the “thriller” genre, some of the characters just suck so much and their motivations make no sense and their actions just seem so forced.

We all know that this is not the type of book that is popular nowadays, but I dare to say that lots of people will like it and here's why: this book is about a certain type of American life that has faded in the past years. A certain type of American lifestyle that was shown to us (the rest of the world) in the movies and sitcoms of the '90. This book reads like an old-fashioned mistery, it's like a movie that you forget once it's over, but the power of this book relies exactly in the parts that ...more

Super impressed with Remember Me. I wasn't expecting a murder mystery novel that I couldn't put down!

There was a ton of moving parts in Remember Me. Scott and his wife Vivian are out sailing one day and decide to go scuba diving. A storm comes when they are down in the water and Vivian is swept into the ocean and is later found dead. One of the police officers is sure that this wasn't an accident. Minley and Adam are trying to overcome the tragic accident leading to the death of their son. They

I was in the mood for a mystery and when I was in Providence, on my way to Cape Cod for the summer, this book was the first book I picked up when I was proozing in Salvation Army. It was really fun to read while I was in the Cape because a lot of the places, streets, restaurants they talked about, I knew where they were. It was a super easy read (almost equivalent to how I remember a Nancy Drew). I had trouble getting into it at first, especially since there were a lot of characters and the chap ...more

this is one of Mary Higgins Clark,s older books that somehow got pushed way back on my bookshelves at home. I'm glad I found it. Loved it as most of her books. A great psychological thriller that leaves you guessing right up to the end. If you like thrillers and haven't read this one yet I recommend you do. I think you'll enjoy it. ...more

Mary Higgin Clark truly is the Queen Of Suspense!
Looking forward to read the other ones she's written.

Awesome, I didn't expect that ending.
Like always, she has blown my mind away with a beautiful but kind of dark and misterious story writen in a way that makes me feel inside of the plot, in the story.
Claire Willeford-Carrillo
Picked up this book completely by chance in a collection of donated books. Fun, fast, suspense read; my favorite part was probably the old-fashioned mystery feel (no cell phones or email, everyone writing on note pads etc...) of reading an early 90s thriller. Not quite Agatha Christie but nothing like a 2021 detective story. Beautiful beach setting on Cape Cod also helped me escape daily life for a bit.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I really enjoyed this murder mystery. Menley and Adam are renting a house on the Cape for a vacation. Menley is suffering from PTSD from the death of their son. Adam decides to defend Scott Covey while I on vacation in the death of his wife of 3 months. Is Scott innocent or guilty? Is Menley well or does she need hospitalized? Such a good book.

Rounded up for MHC, as I liked this one more than many others, despite the villain explaining things to the victim and the kind of nonsensical ending.

Mary Higgins Clark illustrates suspense and deception with perfect ease.
This is my first high-school book read, and I thoroughly enjoyed, right from the beginning until the very end. She reels more and more suspense into her novels with the turn of every page, making it impossible for you to keep the book the down. The unique combination of haunts, ghostly feelings and a detective criminal story line, makes this story a memorable one.

I will surely remember you ;)

Wonderfully written, can't wait t

As much as I liked the unexpected end, the whole story seemed to me a lot like the Rebecca's, by Daphne du Maurier, and that's the reason I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have. But it was very interesting and captivated me from the beginning. The plot twist was just perfect!

Mary Higgins Clark writes a good mystery, but this book was not one of her best. The storyline was excellent; however, too many viewpoints muddied the waters. Had she narrowed the field slightly, I would have it enjoyed it more. I also thought the ending was trite. How convenient that Menly would be descended from the daughter of the seafaring captain who built the house.

Loved it. This one is about Menley and Adam. Menley lost her two year old son in an accident, then had baby Hannah. They vacationed at Remember House on the Cape for the summer. Adam is a lawyer who represented Scott Covey who supposedly murdered his wife. Awesome twist at the end. Enjoyed the whole book.
