Readalikes - Just Take My Heart, by Mary Higgins Clark

Talk about longevity and consistency! I won't say how long I've worked at the library (ahem!), but Mary Higgins Clark was a bestseller author then (and decades before in fact) and continues today with Just Take My Heart. Her fans are loyal.

Did you know that she is 82? She joins the rank of other octogenarian writers like P.D. James. Impressive to think that all of her novels been bestsellers.

Her latest novel explores the idea that a donor's memories and characteristics manifest themselves in the transplant recipient.

While you are waiting for your turn to read Clark's latest thriller, consider trying one of these authors.

  1. "The Hong Kong Connection" is a legal thriller about a gutsy female attorney who takes on high ranking International officials. It's a taut, rollercoaster of a ride from New York to Palm Beach to Washington D.C. to Hong Kong. The plot is expertly woven, the characters persuasive, and the dialogue snappy and spot on.
