Title: While My Pretty One Sleeps
Author: Mary Higgins Clark
Story: Neeve Kearny owns a boutique in NYC. One of her best customers (but most annoying) disappears and is later found murdered. The similarities to her own mothers’ murder are striking, and she finds herself closer to the killer than she ever anticipated.
What Worked: The story was seamless. You learn just enough about the characters to care and move the story forward. There is enough plot there to keep you guessing and just enough twist to keep you entertained. The writing is very straightforward. Not a lot of prose or fancy work here – plot driven.
What Needed Work: Seriously, I am in no position to be giving Mary Freakin’ Higgins Clark any advice….no.
Overall: This isn’t Mrs. Higgins’ first rodeo – the book comes together as cute and perfect as a Scooby Doo episode. This book came recommended to me by my best friend. I am a first time Higgins reader and I can see why she is a best seller. It was a little too formulaic for me to LOVE it, but it was a good beach read.
