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

Σκευωρίες, κρίσεις πανικού, παραισθήσεις, αμφιβολίες, ένας μυστηριώδης θάνατος και… φαντάσματα!!! Όλα αυτά συμβαίνουν σε μία έπαυλη του 18ου αιώνα! Πώς να μην ξετρελαθώ; Απρόσμενα καλό, αν σκεφτεί κανείς ότι αυτό το βιβλίο ούτε το ήξερα, ούτε το άκουσα ποτέ, και όταν το βρήκα απλώς το προσπέρασα. Το πώς έφτασε στα χέρια μου και μάλιστα πως έτυχε να το διαβάσω είναι μια άλλη ιστορία! Σίγουρα ήταν πάρα πολύ καλό, δεν ήθελα να το αφήσω με τίποτα. Κρίμα που είναι εξαντλημένο.

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

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.

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

Mais uma vez esta autora não desilude. É sempre um prazer ler os seus livros e este não é exceção! Gostei bastante da Menley e da sua família. O toque de sobrenatural deu mistério ao enredo, o que apreciei.
Gostei ainda de conhecer as histórias do passado. Quando ao assassino, não me surpreendeu...mas mesmo assim gostei muito da história. Esta é uma autora que toda a gente devia experimentar ler, mesmo aqueles que não costumam apostar em policiais!

Lembrem-se de Mim (Remember House no original) é o primeiro policial-thriller que leio de Mary Higgins Clark. Enquanto recente apreciadora do género, confesso que o romance estimula facilmente a leitura graças ao ritmo ocular, espaçado e ligeiro, que o caracteriza e ao vocabulário francamente prático e de rápida absorção da autora. O suspense, por outro lado, é apenas o necessário para nos manter activos na leitura durante dois terços da obra, havendo uma quebra distinta no compasso da acção a p ...more

Mary Higgins Clark ist einfach die Krimi-Queen für mich!
Auch dieses Buch hat mich wieder von Anfang an gefesselt: Denn nicht nur ein unglücklicher Tauchunfall passiert, bei dem man sich fragt, ob es auch wirklich nur ein Unfall war. Es passieren auch merkwürdige Dinge in einem alten Kapitänshaus, bei denen man verrückt zu werden scheint.
Die Autorin vermischt die beiden Erzählstränge geschickt miteinander, in dem sich die beteiligten Personen treffen und miteinander interagieren. So wird die Gesc

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

Stars: 3 / 5
Recommendation: Looking for a thriller with chills, love, history and of course a murder, this is the one to pick.

Remember Me is a 1994 suspense thriller by Mary Higgins Clark. Another of her chilling novels that always send a shiver up your back. The plot this time around is set in Cape Cod, MA.

The book opens with Vivian Carpenter goes missing when she and her husband Scott Covey were hit by a five-foot wave while scuba diving in Chatham, MA. Her body was found two weeks later washe

أول قراءاتي للكاتبة ولن تكون الأخيرة إن شاء الله

الفكرة كبداية مطروقة عن البيوت المسكونة وربطها بالأمراض النفسية, مستوى اللغة أقل من المتوسط وهذا بطبيعة الحال ليس من أول العوامل التي أبحث عنها في رواية بوليسية ومن الواضح أن الترجمة مؤثرة بشكل فعلي على لغة الرواية فبانت ركيكة في بعض المواضع كما أزعجتني بعض الإخطاء الإملائية مثل انتقاص الهمزات وهو أمر يستفزني كثيراً على الرغم من أنه لم يؤثر على السرد والمعنى

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

A spooky murder mystery set in Cape Cod. A lawyer takes a vacation at the Cape but then ends up taking on a high profile murder case. His wife is still trying to get over the loss of their two year old son. She keeps reliving the night she lost her son and is now worried about her baby Hannah. She tries to tell herself she is ok and immerses herself in writing a children's book set in the early days of the Cape. The book ends with climatic twist on a stormy night.

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.

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.

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.

No ha estado mal, pero me ha parecido algo predecible. Y si se hubiera ahorrado la nota del final, mejor.
