This summer I’ve been reading a lot of super easy, reads. This is another one of those.
I have always loved Mary Higgins Clark. She writes suspenseful, mysteries, which are kind of my guilty pleasure. I always read them fast because I just want to know what happens next.
Heather and I listened to this book on tape while driving back from California, so this one went extra fast.
Mariah’s (an investment banker in New York) father is shot in his own home. The police assume that it was her mother, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s and was found holding the gun in a closet. However, her father had just made an enormous discovery in antiquities, so of course there are quite a few other suspects that begin to come into play.
This book is from the point of view a few different people, and sometimes the time period flips back and forth so you have to pay attention to that. It’s also very slow with character development, but as soon as it finished with that it picks up pretty fast. I would definitely recommend it for a light, quick read.
