Welcome to our eighth year of this event.  Join in and share your own chosen book.

For the First Book of 2021, I have selected another Mary Higgins Clark novel, Piece of My Heart.  This one picks up again with the Under Suspicion series.


In the latest thrilling collaboration from #1 New York Times bestselling author and “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke, television producer Laurie Moran must solve the kidnapping of her fiancée’s nephew—just days before her wedding.

Television producer Laurie Moran and her fiancée, Alex Buckley, the former host of her investigative television show, are just days away from their mid-summer wedding, when things take a dark turn. Alex’s seven-year-old nephew, Johnny, vanishes from the beach. A search party begins and witnesses recall Johnny playing in the water and collecting shells behind the beach shack, but no one remembers seeing him after the morning. As the sun sets, Johnny’s skim board washes up to shore, and everyone realizes that he could be anywhere, even under water.

A ticking clock, a sinister stalker, and fresh romance combine in this exhilarating follow up to the bestselling You Don’t Own Me—another riveting page-turner from the “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and her dazzling partner-in-crime Alafair Burke.


 When I finish the book, I will review it here.  I’ll be visiting many other participants. Enjoy your first books!

    Starting the year with Mary Higgins Clark is a great idea! I hope you love it, Laurel-Rain. After much debate and deciding I should go with something light and funny, I went in the opposite direction and chose Lisa See’s The Island of Sea Women. I’m really excited about finally reading it. Wishing you peace, joy and good health this New Year.
