My Thoughts on Where Are You Now? by Mary Higgins Clark
I just love Mary Higgins Clark’s work! Every tale that I have read from her has totally captivated me. Sure, some of her books are a little predictable, but they’re roller-coaster rides nonetheless! Her writing style is just so wonderful!
Where Are You Now? is a book that I had read before I began reviewing books online. When Alex’s coworker gifted me a box of her late husbands novels, I saw this one and couldn’t wait to reread it!
On my second read, I was both excited and a little bummed that I couldn’t remember how the case turned out. It certainly made the re-read more exciting, but I was also sad that I had forgotten the ending!
Right from page one, this story pulls you in. As a reader, we jump between various characters to slowly learn more and more about the overall situation. There are so many chapters that make readers lean toward one specific person as the bad one, but then soon after, you’re leaning another way!
The suspense builds and builds over the course of the book, then like all great mysteries, the ending is explosive! One of my favorite things about Mary’s work is how neatly everything gets tied up at the very last minute.
My Favorite Passages from Where Are You Now?
The day had fulfilled its promise- warm with a light breeze. The current of the East River, often so strong, seemed as mellow as the sunshine.
Listening to all the messages, the concern in both their voices, felt like stumbling into a warm room after an ice storm.
My Final Thoughts on Where Are You Now?
If you enjoy mysteries that have a focus on family… Mysteries with suspense that builds and builds as each chapter gives you a little more information and hints at the conclusion… Then I highly recommend this one to you!
