Overview

All Dressed in White (Under Suspicion Series #2) by Mary Higgins Clark, Alafair Burke

The second in the thrilling New York Times bestselling series from Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke, follows television producer Laurie Moran as she investigates the cold case of a bride who went missing days before her wedding.

Five years ago, Amanda Pierce was excitedly preparing to marry her college sweetheart. She and Jeffrey had already battled through sickness and health, although their livelihoods looked set as Amanda was due to inherit her father’s successful garment company.

Then Amanda disappeared the night of her bachelorette party.

In present-day New York, Laurie Moran realizes a missing bride is the perfect cold case for her Under Suspicion television series to investigate. By recreating the night of the disappearance at the wedding’s Florida resort with Amanda’s friends and family, Laurie hopes to solve the case. Laurie and her Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley soon find themselves overwhelmed with theories and rumors about the “beloved” bride from those who were involved with the wedding, including Amanda’s former fiancé, a jealous sister, and plenty of playboy groomsmen.

One thing is certain, whoever was behind Amanda’s vanishing plans to keep the truth hidden “until death do they part.”

Read an Excerpt

All Dressed in White

  • Laurie Moran listened as the teenager in front of her practiced her high school French. She was on line at Bouchon, the newly opened French bakery that was around the corner from her Rockefeller Center office.

    “Jay voo-dray un pan chocolate. Make that deux.”

    The cashier smiled patiently as she waited for the young woman to string together her next request. Clearly she was accustomed to these clumsy attempts by customers to practice their French, even though the bakery was in the heart of New York City.

    Laurie wasn’t feeling quite as patient. She was meeting with her boss, Brett Young, later this morning and still hadn’t decided which story to pitch first for her show’s next special. She needed as much time as possible to prepare.

    After a final “mare sea,” the girl left, a box of pastries in hand.

    Laurie was next. “I’ll be ordering in anglais, s’il vous plaît.”

    “Merci,” the woman said fervently.

    It had become a tradition that on Friday mornings she would stop at the bakery and bring in special treats for her staff—her assistant, Grace Garcia, and her assistant producer, Jerry Klein. They were grateful for the selection of tarts, croissants, and breads. After she placed the order, the cashier asked if she cared for anything else. The macarons looked delicious. Maybe just a few for Dad and Timmy after dinner, she promised herself, and as a treat for me if today’s meeting with Brett goes well.

    As she stepped from the elevator on the sixteenth floor of 15 Rockefeller Center, she realized how the layout of the Fisher Blake Studios offices reflected the success of her work this past year. She used to be in a small windowless office, sharing an assistant with two other producers, but since she had created a true crime–based “news special” focusing on cold cases, Laurie’s career had taken off. Now she had a long row of windows in a spacious office filled with sleek, modern furnishings. Jerry had been promoted to assistant producer and occupied a smaller office next door. And Grace kept more than busy in a large open space just outside. The three of them now worked full-time on their show, Under Suspicion, freeing them from other run-of-the-mill news programming.

    Grace had recently turned twenty-seven but looked even younger. Laurie had been tempted more than once to tell Grace she didn’t need to wear all of the makeup she meticulously applied every day, but clearly Grace preferred a personal style quite different from Laurie’s classic tastes. Today, she wore a multicolored silk tunic over impossibly slim leggings, with five-inch platform boots. Her long black hair was pulled into an I Dream of Jeannie topknot, teased into a perfect fountain.

    Usually Grace lunged for the bakery bag, but today she did not. “Laurie,” she began slowly.

    “Something wrong, Grace?” Laurie knew her assistant well enough to recognize when she was upset.

    Just as Grace was about to explain, Jerry stepped out of his office. Standing between Jerry’s long, lanky frame and Grace in her sky-high heels always made Laurie feel short, even though she was a slender five-foot-seven.

    Jerry held up both palms. “There’s a lady sitting in your office. She just showed up. I told Grace to schedule an appointment for her at some other time. For the record, I had nothing to do with this.”

    Great "sequel" to The Cinderella Murders.

    Mary Higgins Clark never disappoints! She knows how to hook her readers and surprise them as the story unfolds. One great twist after another! As usual I'm looking for her next book as soon as I finish the one I'm reading.

    Wow I didn't really see the ending coming at all. I was going back on who the person was and I can honestly say I wasn't really thinking it was who it ended up being. What a total surprise. MHC books are like this unlike her daughter who in her way tells you who the culprit is from the beginning or they are written in such a way that you figure out who it is by the middle. This book had all the thrills and chills of the previous 2 books and I am so looking forward to another book in this series. The story is about Amanda who disappeared the night before her wedding. Laurie is a host of the show "Under Suspicion" and is in the process of picking her next story line when in walks Amanda's mother with her story about her disappearance. Laurie gets to work and gathers the whole group that was associated with the wedding. As the story moves along Alex, her love interest, is a well known prosecutor who is the host of the show while questioning the guests open more doors on what really happened to Amanda. Amanda's older sister was always in competition with here, brother Alex doesn't want anything to do with the family business. Mom and dad divorced because Mom wanted closure on Amanda. There are questions throughout the book but all is answered by the last page.

    Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke, what a great team. They certainly hit this out of the park. Amanda Pierce vanished the night of her bachelorette party just prior to her lavish wedding. Five years later her mother begs Laurie Moran to feature her cold case in Laurie's show Under Suspicion. I love this concept of a reality show that covers cold cases in the hopes of actually solving the crime. Laurie and her staff and family are all interesting and complex characters. I stayed up late at night to finish this book. I'll certainly read more of this series.
