Loves Music, Loves to Dance highlights the dangers of blind dating and personal ads. When a young woman is murdered her friend does everything she can to hunt down her killer, not knowing that he has already chosen his next victim - her! In true Mary Higgins Clark style, she keeps us guessing until the last moment. A truly excellent read, a must for all crime/thriller fans.
This is my third Mary Higgins Clarke novel and it follows her exact formula: A beautiful heroine is stalked by a perverted psycho. She's involved with a bunch of red herrings who could all be the baddie and we won't know the villain's true identity until the last few pages, when our damsel is rescued by Prince Charming. There's no variation from the recipe; it's always the same.
Clark's books are quick reads, good for the beach or a plane trip, but way too predictable and poorly written for me to read anymore of them. There are too many characters to keep track of, we're given way too much useless information about them, the dialog is full of grandiose words and phrases that aren't realistic, and we know the heroine will solve the mystery in the end. I like this book's title and the idea of a killer finding his victims through personals, but it's just not very well done.
Here we see best friends Darcy and Erin answering personal ads on behalf of a mutual friend. One of these friends (Erin) goes missing and is subsequently found murdered. The remaining friend (Darcy) takes it upon herself to do her own investigations by continuing to answer personal ads against the wishes of the FBI/Police. On the surface the killer (who has murdered lots of girls over a period of time and been dubbed a serial killer) seems very nice and approachable, and has been befriended by Darcy. Just how much danger is she in and can she be saved in time before the Killer achieves his goal of murdering Darcy.
A very fast paced novel, that will hold your attention throughout. Bear in mind that these personal adds were before the days of Facebook and Twitter, so were we as safe back then before internet chat rooms and Facebook/Twitter came into existence?
Excellent book. Would recommend.
Erin and Darcy are answering personal ads on behalf of a TV producer friend a research for a show, they discover all sorts of characters, adulterers, con men, the downright weird......and a serial killer.
I loved the plot but this book is showing its age, cassette tapes, no Internet or mobiles. Some of the dialogue is cringe making and it's unnecessary to describe in detail the various outfits worn each time a character appears. Red herrings galore, this is typical MHC, far better than some of her more recent books, it's an easy and undemanding read. I did enjoy the story and the mix of characters but it could have been stronger if the character dialogue had been better.
