Review: I’ve Got You Under My Skin (Mary Higgins Clark)

I've Got You Under My Skin - Mary Higgins ClarkGoodreads Summary: When Laurie Moran’s husband was brutally murdered, only three-year-old Timmy saw the face of his father’s killer. Five years later his piercing blue eyes still haunt Timmy’s dreams. Laurie is haunted by more: the killer’s threat to her son as he fled the scene: Tell your mother she’s next, then it’s your turn . . .

Now Laurie is dealing with murder again, this time as the producer of a true-crime, cold-case television show. The series will launch with the twenty-year-old unsolved murder of Betsy Powell. Betsy, a socialite, was found suffocated in her bed after a gala celebrating the graduation of her daughter and three friends. The sensational murder was news nationwide. Reopening the case in its lavish setting and with the cooperation of the surviving guests that night, Laurie is sure to have a hit on her hands. But when the estranged friends begin filming, it becomes clear each is hiding secrets . . . small and large.

My Thoughts: I love Mary Higgins Clark novels! I have read almost all of her books in my life and I have not once been disappointed by what she had written! I love that there are new Clark books out on a regular basis and I always look forward to reading them. As I usually love them so much, I am always done with one book fairly quickly. This is unfortunate as I am always hoping for a new book to being released quickly…

In this crime novel, two different criminal cases are discussed. Even though, they have nothing to do with each other, both crimes are connected throughout the whole story due to the people involved. This keeps the reader guessing about how the two crimes are connected and who are the murderers in both cases.

It most certainly was not her best and most outstanding piece she has ever written but she manages to keep the reader interested. Mary Higgins Clark has a way of writing that keeps you going. This has something to do with her short chapters (most of them are only 2-3 pages long) and the cliff hangers that most chapters end on. It is easy for the reader to continue for just one more chapter and then another and another and after a while you notice that you have been reading half of the book even though you only wanted to read one chapter…

If you are looking for a quick and easy but also compelling read, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” will not disappoint you. It is the perfect holiday companion and a great evening read!

My Rating: ★★★★
