Read full description of the books:
Read a book you can read in one calendar day.
I know that this book is not literary in any way, and it is probably not as good as most books I gave three stars to, but I'm giving this a 3.5 because, you know what?
just so we're clear.
I know these books are cozy mysteries. I know they are predictable. I know that I have read 80% of this woman's collected works and can guess the whodunit at like 20%. I know that the writing isn't good. Guess what?
Because I breezed through this cozy mystery in less than one day, and it was fun. I enjoy Mary Higgins Clark probably because she was the first "adult" author I had ever read. My mother and grandmother both read and loved her books and passed them all down to me. I still like to pick up the rare ones I haven't read, and even though I know what will happen, they serve their purpose which is to entertain me.
I feel that everyone who reads has a set of criteria with which they judge books. Characterization and originality are very high up on my list. I also believe that everyone who reads has those books that are exceptions. Mary Higgins Clark's books are my exceptions. The characters are cut-outs, the dialogue is crap, and there is nothing in this book that you can't find in any cozy mystery anywhere else on earth. But I read them anyway.
Menley is a successful children's author with a hotshot lawyer husband and a new baby girl. They decide to rent a summer house on Cape Cod with an interesting and spooky history and busybody neighbors. Menley's husband Adam grew up on Cape Cod and all his friends are still there including the local real estate agent, Elaine whose past is intimately connected with Adam's. Elaine convinces Adam to take on a high-profile murder case involving a sketchy accident involving an heiress, Vivian, and her new blue-collar husband Scott, who may or may not be responsible for her death. While Adam is tied up with the case, Menley decides to do some research for her next book which she hopes to set on Cape Cod. She begins to dig into the history of her own rental, "Remember House" which is starting to give off some creepy vibes. These chilling and creepy nights she spends alone begin to tear her down and memories of her toddler son's death come flooding back to her in crippling panic attacks. Add to that whispering neighbors, folks with secrets to hide, and a possible killer living down the beach, Menley starts to look a little cray cray as she tries to find out what happened in her house and also what happened to Vivian.
This is the perfect kind of book to start out a vacation, which I did, and I also believe it to be one of Clark's better novels that I've read. I enjoyed Menley as a character, and her struggle to be a new mom while still suffering from the PTSD of losing her son in an accident which she feels responsible for added a nice dimension to the mystery. Nothing mind-blowing here, but it was pleasant. And pleasant adds a half star even though the writing and story can leave much to be desired at times.
