Format: Hardcover
As usual Mary Higgins Clark provides a well thought out mystery (though the killer's identity is glaringly obvious) but this book is scuppered by extremely unsympathetic characters. Heroine Neeve knows a lot about clothes and.......that's it. Oh yes, she's a Daddy's Girl, and her father is also obsessed with her. Unfortunately this book is so shallow the author refuses to do anything interesting with that particular strand.There are paragraphs and paragraphs packed with descriptions of what the characters are wearing ....it adds nothing to their personalities and makes them little more than shop window dummies. Mary Higgins Clark can and has written better books than this one.

I always enjoy reading anything by Mary Hioggins Clark. They are all different, but they hold you right through the book and you find it difficult to think who or what has done it! This book is a very good read.

Nerve Kearney owns Neeve's Place a fashion boutique and Ethal Lambston a journalist is a big customer, so when she fails to keep her appointment at Neeve's Place to pick up her clothes, Neeve becomes concerned. Eventually Ethal's body is discovered by a walker and things start to happen. Also the murder of Neeve's Mother is still unsolved. Is there a connection. And what does Nick Sepetti a Mafia mobster have to do with Neeve's mothers death? Very iintriguing.

Good descriptions about the fashion industry and contrary to a previous I don't think the description on what people were wearing was overdone. Good book which held your attention throughout. Would recommend.

Kept the suspense going right until the end. Certainly kept the reader guessing. Couldn't put it down had to keep going until the end so read it in one day.

I read this book years ago and loved the story. I love how it keeps you guessing as to who did it, even though I knew this time, it was still a good read. Bit Mills and Boon meets dark and dangerous.

This is the first MHC book I've read. It made a good start, I'll be getting more of her books now. Though the depth of characters is not on a par with some of my favourite thriller writers (P.D. James and Caroline Graham, for example), the plot unfolds with unexpected twists and is well written. I found it quite a page turner. One thing annoyed me, though: the 'reddish glow of spring' - this phrase occurred at least four times, oh please!

I enjoyed this immensely and it is one of my favourite MHC books. Unlike the other reviewer, I didn't hit on the identity of the murderer straightaway.
I wish I could find a clothes store that could put together wardrobes for me!
MHC's work is typified by her sympathetic characters, particularly the heroine, I am always left feeling that if the heroine existed, I would want to add her to my circle of friends. A knack MHC usually achieves with her heroines. An enjoyable read from a consistently sound author.

I can't understand the poor revues as this is a great story with great characters. I have read all her books and alongside "Pretend You Don't See Her" this is one of my favourites. I can't wait for it to be on Kindle.
