Ok read! not her best writing...suspense,mystery and interesting storyline with well developed characters who all seemed to be a suspect or the killer (paperback!)

I did like this book, mainly because MHC really does a good job of setting up multiple possible perps, but her writing at times almost childish, with some fairly clumsy phrasing. I did get sucked in to the mystery, and enjoyed the character of Fran, but the main character drove me nuts, she was such a victim. The passing nod to personal growth at the end, where she realizes that believing in yourself blah blah blah was too little too late.

We'll Meet Again is a good story but it has virtually no surprises and the characters aren't very complex.

I was waiting on a library hold so I plucked this book off my shelf from a library book sale of some time ago. I guess my reading tastes as of late have changed because I used to really enjoy Mary Higgins Clark but I didn't enjoy this book as much as I should have. Molly was the somewhat privileged wife of a Dr. that is found murdered and she is convicted of his murder. After 5-1/2 years of prison she is released. She is determined to prove her innocence and asks for the help of her childhood cl ...more
We’ll Meet Again was a book that when I started reading it grabbed my attention, but then it became like a never-ending story. I think some chapters weren’t even needed in the book. However, the whole book was very suspenseful, the ending shocked me.

I have to agree with the description of the book here on Goodreads in that the conspiracy involving physicians seems a bit much, but the book was interesting with a nice twist at the end.

I absolutely LOVVEEEEDDDD this book!! Great story line/plot. Keeps you interested until the very end. The best part is not knowing who the actual killer was. Sometimes you really did think that the main character had gone crazy and had really killed her husband and husbands gf. Amazing book, definitely recommended!

This book received 4 stars but it was more of a 3 and 1/2. I had trouble engaging with the story. The author always does a great job of making her novels full of suspense. This time it did not engage me too much until the very end. Molly has been in prison for killing her husband and seeks to get information from others to exonerate herself. She gets into so much trouble while doing this. Fran, a reporter, is a great help in finding out the truth and big problems seem to find her. I will still r ...more

In Mary Higgins Clark's We'll Meet Again, she was no doubt the queen of suspense. When Molly Lasch returned home from her Cape Cod trip, she was the suspect of her husband's murder, when he was found dead in their bedroom Six years after she was released from prison, she came to her friend Fran to help prove her innocence that she didn't crush Gary's skull with a blunt object. She had no memory of the crime. With help from Fran on research and a true crime program, they discovered some shocking ...more

Very thrilling book indeed ! But even if the murderer was completely unexpected, my sister was right : with this being my third Mary Higgins Clark's book, her unexpectedness becomes totally expected if you know what I mean :p ! The three murderers had something in common .. I guess I'll be able to guess who the next murderer is in her next book :D !
This was a good mystery although I was not crazy about the characters. A poor little rich society girl who conveniently feels faint and forgets major events in her life. But the rest of the mystery threads do come together nicely. The men tended to be stereotyped and the three main female characters could have stepped straight out of a soap opera.

This was the first Mary Higgins Clark book I've read. I like her writing style. She writes very short chapters making it easy to put down and pick up when you have only short periods available to read. Enjoyable mystery.

Wow, this book had me intrigued right from the prologue. Molly is convicted of killing her husband, Gary Lasch, even though the evidence is circumstantial and is serves 5 years of her sentence before getting early parole. A former schoolmate, Fran, who is now an investigative television reporter is tasked with digging into the story for an upcoming segment in the station's true-crime program. Fran's job is made easier after being contacted by Molly who has seen her in the crowd of reporters who ...more

Again, I haven't read a MHC novel for a while. I tend to have bursts of enthusiasm reading her works. Won't read any for several months, then binge read 4 or 5 in one go!
Anyway, this one was an enjoyable if creepy read, but then MHC does have the talent to completely unsettle me. Fran Simmons, journalist, has returned to New York City to be the Crime Reporter on a popular news channle. She moved to California as a teenager after her father took his own life the night before an embezzlement scan

She went to prison with not remembering events occurring during his murder. Upon getting out she starts to remember insignificant things of that night. Or so she thought. As conspiracy threatens her livelihood again, her late husbands mistress is found murdered within hou ...more

This was my first book in Crime genre. I didn't want to cry again with a Nicholas Spark's book ,so I picked up something I wouldn't connect to ,a crime thriller .
The usual Not guilty unless proven trope but for my 15 year old head, it was interesting but not awesome .I completed the book in 30 days ,considering I didn't want to finish it ,it's not an Adrenaline pumper.
The plot runs slowly and at the end you have no memory of what happened .

Definitely a page-turner that I didn't want to put down. I hadn't read one of MHC's books in several years, but she was definitely my favorite author as a child and this book didn't disappoint. About 75% of the way through, I had several questions that weren't answered and that I didn't see getting answered. I'm always impressed by Clark's ability to seamlessly tie up all the loose ends. The fast-paced denouement reminded me of my favorite book by her, "All Around the Town." Similar to another r ...more

Mary Higgins Clark is definitely the queen of suspense! This book was a real page turner. One thing I especially like about her books is that she ties up all the loose ends. You are kept guessing till the end who the "bad guy" is. The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because I found the main character hard to like. She was whiny and weak, I guess many woman are like her but I am just not a person to play the victim, I kept waiting for her to get mad and take charge. This book ...more

So well written I'm jumping up and down with joy!

This book is my favorite type of read. Just the right amount of pages. Not long and drawn out with a bunch of filler. I must say I truly love reading MHC books. Her writing style is perfect for me. The suspense is perfect and I feel so connected to the characters. A+++++++ Can't wait to read another one of her novels.

When I really love a book, I would either end up speechless or I talk nonstop about it. For this story, I'm not sure where I am, I guess I'm in between? We'll Meet Again by Mary Higgins Clark, I believe is one of her best books so far.

Her other book, A Stranger is Watching was a good one but didn't totally stood up for me. I love to give her another chance to prove that she's still the Queen of Suspense that made me fall in love reading English books in the first place, so I decided to settle fo

Mary Higgins Clark IS the queen of suspense. I had to put this book down several times because my heart was racing. We'll Meet Again tells the story of Molly Lasch. We meet her as she is being paroled from prison after serving almost six years for a crime she doesn't remember having committed. Her husband, Dr. Gary Lasch, had been found bludgeoned to death in their home. Molly woke up that morning covered with blood and too traumatized to recall the night of his murder. Her lawyer is dismayed wh ...more

While an interesting read, this is not my favorite MHC book. I found the character of Molly annoying in that she was spineless and rather than willing to fight for herself when wrongly accused of murder, she simply gives into the fact that maybe she did do it. So, for that reason, I subtracted a couple of stars. But, I liked the sometimes short chapters and the storyline held my interest, so despite the annoying Molly, the book was worth reading.

this was an okay read. I have read four Mary Higgins Clark books to this point. This one was my least favorite out of the fo. I felt that it lacked the quick read quality of the other three. it kind of drug out. the good news is that the chapters were quick and as usual, Clark keeps you guessing up to the end. Overall, it was a good read but I won't be keeping it to read again

i really enjoyed this book in fact it spell bound me so much that i started reading in the evening and ended at 5 a.m. the mystery took many twists and turns. A woman goes to jail for killing her rich husband--- or did she kill him. There was so many twists and turns that i couldn't figure out who was the killer and the ending just blew me away.

I read this book without previously reading any synopsis or description so I really had no idea who did it. In the end there were two deaths by one murderer, a bunch of other deaths by another murderer and the main death, that of Dr. Gary Lasch, by another. I guess the first two killers, but my mind was blown when I discovered the last one.
