But even as the doctor assures Kerry that her daughter's scars will heal, she spies a familiar-looking beautiful woman in the waiting room and is seized by an overpowering sense of deja vu. When, on a return visit, she sees the same haunting face --

I still remember this book. I even bought a copy for myself. Let Me Call You Sweetheart is actually one of my favorite books by Mary Higgins Clark.

Every story has their own uniqueness, something that will set them apart from other books. And for this, I can say that this book definitely fits into that category. This book has an unusual twist -- a plot that involved plastic surgery. The author really knows how to keep her readers interested and hooked from page one up to the last.

The heroine, Ker

Prosecutor Kerry McGrath sees a woman she thinks she recognizes in the office of plastic surgeon Dr. Smith while accompanying her young daughter, Robin, for an appointment. Kerry realizes this woman eerily resembles a murdered woman, Suzanne Reardon, found strangled to death with sweetheart roses scattered over her body. It was a vicious crime the media dubbed the 'Sweetheart Murder' case. Suzanne's husband, Skip Reardon, was charged and convicted, due mostly in part to the suspect testimony of ...more
Clark, Mary Higgins - standalone

Beauty has its price... Kerry McGrath had only begun to work in the county prosecutor's office at the time of the infamous "Sweetheart Murder Case" -- the bizarre slaying years ago of strikingly beautiful Suzanne Reardon. Now, ten years later, Kerry has gained a reputation as a smart and relentless prosecutor -- so much so that her name has been given to the governor as a candidate for a new judgeship -- and her new life and career
If you missed the TV movie version from a decade ago, get ready for an intense thrill ride in Mary Higgins Clark's Let Me Call You Sweetheart. Kerry McGrath was a devoted mother and a successful prosecutor. When her daughter's face was cut in a car accident, it sent her to Dr. Charles Smith's office for plastic surgery. Little did she know that two faces bear an uncanny resemblance to Suzanne Reardon, a young woman was killed eleven years ago by her husband, Skip, who spent his life in a life se ...more
This was my second book by Mary Higgins Clark and I am already in love with her mysteries... The way she portrays a strong woman's character is the most appealing... The book kept me glued to my ebook reader the whole night... Looking forward to read more of her works....
I loved this book - I have read all of Mary Higgins Clark's books and liked all of them.

What I Adore
I would not deny the fact that Marry Higgins Clark is one of my favorite authors. I became a fan of hers after reading "Loves Music, Loves to Dance", the very first of her books that I've read. I always love how she makes every reader will not stop on reading her books.

This book kept me glued to it. Never really saw the ending coming. I also like that it's even a suspense book, she incorporated some humor and romance to it. I'm even one of Kerry and Geoff's loveteam fans!

Kerry McGrath, prosecutor and candidate for judgeship decides to reopen a criminal dossier at the insistence of a (handsome) defense lawyer who thinks his client is locked up for a murder he has not committed. This angers one of Kerry's friends, who happens to be one of New York senators and thinks that this will compromise her future as a judge. He might not be able to recommend her if she stirs up the past. Political reality, or threat?

At the same time, Kerry's daughter, who was in a car accid
This was a pretty standard Mary Higgins Clark. I have read a lot of her books, and she has a pretty consistent style.

This novel had a lot of suspects, and I did not get very suspicious of the actual murderer until like two pages before we find out who it was. So, I was kept guessing. So many people saw the victim dead! That makes it hard to figure out who actually did it.

This book concerns itself with a ten-year old murder case. The accused is still in jail and still protesting his innocence. A

Mi madre es asidua a este tipo de novelas, y últimamente ando viendo qué lee ella, así es como llegue a este libro.

Mary Higgins Clark es de ese tipo de escritoras que te dan todas las pistas y que sin embargo no terminas por adivinarlo hasta que el personaje te lo dice en tu cara.

Es el segundo libro que leo de ella en estos meses y no consigo acostumbrarme tanto a su estilo que pueda encontrar las pistas. Eso es bastante agradable y sorprendente, tomando en cuenta de que todos los personajes est

It ended in a way I didn't expect and it was a better ending than the one I thought.
It's the first book I read from this author and I enjoyed it:)
Another excellent book from this author...complex storyline with lots of characters, but maintains
good character development and a storyline that's interesting and easy to follow....The story revolves
around a murder done 10 years ago, called the sweetheart murder, and new information/evidence now coming to light. The main character is an assistant prosecutor now discovering new items of a case where potentially an innocent man has been imprisoned for a decade for. The ending was unexpected which

The book “Let Me Call You Sweetheart” by Mary Higgins Clark is a fantastic book that will keep you guessing at the end of every chapter. The novel begins in a doctor’s waiting room as Kerry McGrath patiently waits for her daughter’s stitches (from a recent car accident) to be removed. However, she feels a slight chill after she notices a familiar, beautiful face. She later comes to the conclusion that that woman has the same face as the gorgeous victim (Suzanne Reardon) of the “Sweetheart Murde ...more
It was lunch break when I decide to take a nap in the library. But I was not able to sleep so I decided to read some book. I saw this book on the shelf. At first, I thought the book was some kind of a love story. But in fact, it wasn't. The book was a page-turner. It got my attention and my curiosity as I read every pages. I love the twist and turn of the story. It was so unpredictable especially the ending of the story. Definitely, this book is worth reading for.
I'm pretty sure I saw this as a made-for-tv movie. It was a good book with a nice plot twist at the end, but having the nagging feeling that I had seen it play out before ruined it a bit for me.
Megan Peterson
Not as great as her other works but still a pretty good book. Didn't have as much suspense as the others but the end did kind of surprise me.
Kieroutunut plastiikkakirurgi ja syytön vankilassa, siinähän sitä. Vanha kirja, mutta tosi hyvä.
Let Me Call You Sweetheart is written from a multitude of different points of view- even the murderer- though you have to guess which one he is.
Mary Higgins Clark was very clever and never failed to surprised me. I waffled back and forth on who could be the murderer and who was just too conveniently set up to look like the murderer that I almost didn’t quite catch on to the real murderer until it was too forgone to come to any other conclusion. There were no clues as to who it was but a steadily
This was better than the first Mary Higgins Clark book that I have read. This is about a young girl who was the opposite of Cinderella, she had two beautiful step-sisters and she was the one less fortunate on looks. Her father was a plastic surgeon who made her into his masterpiece. He adored her so much afterwards that he became obsessed with her looks after she was murdered and he started to turn some of his patients into a mirror image of her. A young girl was in a car accident and went to hi ...more

Μια σειρά συμπτώσεων ξεκλειδώνουν μια παλιά υπόθεση δολοφονίας. Όλα τα δεδομένα ανατρέπονται. Πολλοί ύποπτοι, πολλές οι σχέσεις των υπόπτων με την πρωταγωνίστρια, συγκλονιστική η αποκάλυψη. Πραγματικά κλονίστηκα. Συνιστώ να διαβάζετε πίσω από τις γραμμές. Από τα καλύτερά της. Ο ιστός της πλοκής χωρίς περιττές γαρνιτούρες. Άριστη γνώση της ανθρώπινης ψυχολογίας και του κόσμου της πλαστικής χειρουργικής.

Στα ελληνικά από Bell το 1997 (Άσε με να σε λέω αγαπημένη).

Recommends it for: MHC fans, and those interested in starting to read MHC!
I am proud to say that this is the 8th MHC title that I have read. This was one of my favorites for sure! Mary Higgins Clark is addicting to read!

The topics of plastic surgery, obsession, and infidelity are major in this book.

One of the many aspects that I enjoyed was the inclusion of Robin, the ten year old daughter of the protagonist. Her minor accident is what leads them to the crazy plastic surgeon's office in the first place.

As always, MHC is FULL of surprises. I personally found this en

it was pretty freaky.the best thing about this was its characters..i was sitting in the dentist room and reading and didn't even notice my name was called..time just didn't pass by..i mean it was great..u mean plastic surgery I hate it...y not accept your own beauty ??god what a guy is dr smith creepy...but I liked robin and Kerry...oh johnny was bad...anyways it was goody and creepy.
A child in car accident suffers facial cuts. She is referred to a plastic surgeon and then the mother notices something strange as she sits in the waiting room. I liked the beginning with an innocent man in prison also in the mix. Nearly 3/4 way thru I bogged down; it just didn't keep me interested like other MHC mysteries do. The end was a good switch, but I actually saw it coming. OK, but not recommending.

Pretty good mystery. I had not figured out who the baddie was at all. I wish there was more romance in it because I could see it kind of blossoming, but it was really hard to see. This audiobook is abridged so maybe that's the problem. I bought a bunch of cassette audiobooks so I'm slowly working my way through authors I usually don't pick up.
Il me semble que c'est la première fois que je lis Mary Higgins Clark. On croit tout savoir dès le début alors que le dénouement est finalement plus compliqué. Le personnage principal, Kerry, se penche sur une affaire vieille de 10 ans et qui attire son attention après que le hasard l'ai conduit à aller chez ce chirurgien esthétique qui reproduit le visage de sa fille défunte sur ses patientes. L'intrigue est intéressante et il est agréable de suivre la découverte de nouveaux indices qui font av ...more
Good, plot of sweetheart murder.
Man in prison 10 ears but did not kill wife. Who did?
Antiques thief is interesting character.
Did not leave me breathless but still fast paced and good.

Gak heran kalau penulisnya dijulukin queen of suspense. Ada juga yang bilang dia suksesornya Agatha Christie. Novelnya ini seru dan bikin tegang. Setting-nya masa kini (nggak kayak Agatha Christie yang masa perang dunia kedua banget).

Novel yang ini tentang seorang pengacara perempuan yang lagi naik daun. Kerry terjebak antara panggilan nurani dan masa depan sebagai hakim. Dia harus milih apa akan ngebela orang yang nggak bersalah atau lempeng dan pura2 nggak tau apa2.

Akhir ceritanya nggak terdu
