    A Wonderful Book

    I first started to read this book because my mom recommended it to me. Then, after I was almost done, I decided to do it for a book report. I made up my report, and I found that it is easy to do a report on. I also just enjoyed reading it. It isn't too confusing, and Alvirah is someone that you can understand. She is almost like a real person, not just a character.

    Good stories!

    The Lottery winner is an interesting series of stories about Alvirah & Willy Meehan who were simple working class people until she won a 40 million dollar lottery. Alvirah is a woman who is concerned about people and their problems, and she is always eager to help out when they're in trouble. She wears a lapel pin that has a tiny recording device that aids her in solving crimes. The continuation of the main characters in these stories keeps you wanting to read more about the adventures of Alvirah & her husband, Willy. These stories are, in my opinion, the most entertaining of Mary Higgins Clark's books.

    Frustrating

    I was very disappointed with this book. I felt the reading level was for a ten year old. Only thing that kept me reading is I hate to waste money.

    Not my favorite from Mary Higgins Clark.

    This book consisted of about six short stories revolving around a returning character from other books. The short stories are good but they are solved relatively quickly and since they are so many in one book, they dont go into much detail. This one is probably my least favorite of Mary Higgins Clark's books that i have read.

    The Lottery Winner

    In this book, Willy and Alvirah Meehan solve many different mysteries. Alvirah is a reporter and loves all the excitement. But Willy worries about his wife's saftey, and would like her to just take things nice and easy. I didn't really care much for this Marry Higgins Clark book. I didn't get into it as much as other MHC books. I think that the character Alvirah, solved the different crimes to easy, and it was really hard to believe.

    The Body in the Closet

    I loved this story, it had tons of details. I would recommend this book to anybody that enjoys mysteries. You would never know the theme of the story if you didn't listen or read the whole book. But, this book is outstanding. So if you are into mysteries than you definetly need to read this book.

    Alvirah and Willy are back!

    One of everyone's favorite characters is back! Your favorite snoop who had a brush with death in Weep No More My Lady is in her own book with a bunch of great short stories! She will keep you under her spell from the first page to the last!

    Alvirah is back again!

    I truly enjoyed the Alvirah character in the MHC novel, 'Weep no more, my lady'. It was a pleasure to find her once again in this light-hearted romp. Great compilation of easy reading and fun. :)
