I've Got You Under My Skin by Mary Higgins Clark is a thrilling and beautifully written crime mystery about a widowed mother and her son haunted by a nightmare. Five years after the death of her husband, Laurie Moran and her young son Timmy are still living in the shadows of that fateful day, always fearful of her husband's killer, who threatened to come back for them. When her professional work demanded something creative, Laurie settled for unsolved crime cases for her television show, hoping to strike gold. She got more than she bargained for. She and Timmy are perilously perched as the killer strikes again, in the process, giving the cold case a chance to be solved or the killer making good on his threat to Timmy, "Tell your mother she's next, then it's your turn..." While Mary Higgins Clark is a good story-teller, some of her recent books have not been really that appealing. I've Got You Under My Skin is one of her finer books and offers a chance to redeem herself. The mystery is wrapped beautifully while there is some depth to the story. The characters are both fascinating and likeable. I'm sure many readers will really enjoy this latest mystery from the #1 international and New York Times bestselling author.

Mary Higgins Clark books are always a wonderful read!! This one is no exception! A fast paced story that will keep you wanting to continue reading. The only downfall is now that I've finished reading it, I have to wait until the next book comes out!

This is the first Mary Higgins Clark book I was able to put down. While I appreciated the clean language and family connections, it just wasn't up to her usual standards. Too many characters to keep straight. I read throughto the end... but over the span of a week.

I have always loved MHC, her books were fun, easy beach reads. I met her a few years ago and she is a lovely and gracious lady. For that reason i continued to buy her books despite the fact that they were going downhill. With this latest book I am sorry to say that it s time to retire. It was just awful. There was nothing redeemable about the book. I forgot it the day after I finished it.

I have been reading Mary Higgins Clark for decades, and thoroughly enjoy her suspense. Clark builds the tension of the story in a style like James Patterson, but of course, Patterson must have copied Clark. I like to vary my reading, and Clark delivers short chapter brimming with intrigue. This story centers on an unsolved crime of 20 years ago, and a television series devoted to exploring unsolved crimes. At a graduation gala for 4 college girls, the hosting mother is suffocated, and now the suspects meet to film the story. The characters are vivid and each seems to harbor a motive for killing the beautiful Betsy Powell, but Clark interweaves a story of a murdered doctor and a killer's threat into the story. What fun!

I cannot believe that anyone would give this a 5 star rating. It is DIRE! Unbelievable...and not in a good way. I hate to give a bad rating when an author has put their heart and soul into a book - but really, I found it hard to wade through the book - the story outline was annoyingly improbable, the characters were caricatures, the narrative read like a dialogue from a bad 80's TV program...I don't mind a bit of fantasy in a story, but this was just awful.

This was a good quick read. It was a little slow in a few spots but worth reading. When I read reviews a few people said their Nook book was having problems with missing pages. If you rotate your Nook sideways it solves this problem very easily.

Have always liked her books. This was good but thought a little wordy and seemed to wander somewhat. A nice ending though.

Mary Higgins Clark is one of my favorite authors. As always, this story kept me reading and not wanting to put the book down. Keeps you guessing until the end "who done it", along with the start of a friendship that could become more. Another great mystery by the Master and is full of characters all with a motive to be the killer. If you enjoy a good clean mystery novel and have never read one of her books, pick one up and read, you won't be disappointed.

I never realized how often Mary Higgins Clark used a song tune as a book title, until I started humming the eponymous Cole Porter song. What it has to do with the plot, however, is not so apparent to me. This is the story of two murders and how they somehow tie together. The first victim is the husband of Laurie Moran, a television producer; the other, the suffocation death of Betsy Powell, 20 years earlier, on the night of a gala party her wealthy husband gave for her daughter and three friends upon their graduation from college. What links the two events is that Laurie conceives a TV series based on recreating unsolved murders and selects the Powell mystery for the pilot, inviting Mr. Powell and the four women to participate. The hope, of course, is that the guilty party will somehow blunder on camera and admit to committing the deed. Any suspense is created by the statement of Laurie’s husband’s murderer that he was first, to be followed by the killing of her and their young son. One can almost feel the author plotting the novel, carefully constructing the tale building block by building block. It is so carefully put together that one can anticipate the next sentence. The book is typical of one written by this author, filled with descriptions of what the women are wearing, and the décor of the rooms and grounds where events take place. Not that these are negatives. The novel is certainly well-written and enjoyable, just not a who-dunnit of a high order.

I have always liked Mary Higgins Clark books, but this one is boring.

This book by Mary Higgins Clark is an excellently written novel. I have read books written by her before, but it's been quite a while since the last time I did. However, this book was an excellent book to read. The twist and turns made it one heck of a mystery and kept me reading. I couldn't wait to get to the end. Everyone who enjoys mysteries must read this novel. It is definitely worth reading.

Another winner. I don't think Mary Higgins Clark can write a bad book. This book will keep you guessing until the very end. Just when you think you have the mystery figured out, she throws another curve at us, and we have to start again. This is an awesome read, and everyone will enjoy it.

Summary from Goodreads: "When Laurie Moran's husband was brutally murdered, only three-year-old Timmy saw the face of his father's killer. Five years later his piercing blue eyes still haunt Timmy's dreams. Laurie is haunted by more: the killer's threat to her son as he fled the scene: Tell your mother she's next, then it's your turn . . Now Laurie is dealing with murder again, this time as the producer of a true-crime, cold-case television show. The series will launch with the twenty-year-old unsolved murder of Betsy Powell. Betsy, a socialite, was found suffocated in her bed after a gala celebrating the graduation of her daughter and three friends. The sensational murder was news nationwide. Reopening the case in its lavish setting and with the cooperation of the surviving guests that night, Laurie is sure to have a hit on her hands. But when the estranged friends begin filming, it becomes clear each is hiding secrets . . . small and large. And a pair of blue eyes is watching events unfold, too . . ." My Thoughts: It has been entirely too long since I read a book by Mary Higgins Clark! Honestly I didn't even realize that she had a series of books out until I saw someone (no clue who now) who was talking about the most recent book maybe. I was instantly intrigued and had to grab a copy of this book from the library. I'm so glad that I did because this book was everything that I love about this author and the books she writes! One of the things that I've always enjoyed about her books is how easily they suck me and how suspenseful they are! The short chapters from multiple viewpoints always keep me reading way longer than I ever intend to. I breezed through the pages of this book completely caught up within the mystery. I spent the entire time I was reading it trying to figure out the killer only to be wrong and surprised by the ending. I also really enjoyed that in this book there was the secondary mystery of who killed Laurie's husband. That storyline added a few creepy moments for me while reading because I was so worried over how everything was going to turn out! When I finished I was left so excited to have started this series and ready to continue on! What an enjoyable mystery this was! Overall I really enjoyed my time with this book, and am super excited to pick up the second book in the near future. This was the mystery that I was looking for without really realizing it - it was a great change pace from some of the darker thrillers that I've been reading lately. There's just something about Ms. Clark's books that I enjoy so much. I'm really excited to be diving back into her backlist again! I would recommend this book to fans of mysteries and suspense. This is an easy recommend on my part! Bottom Line: An enjoyable mystery that kept me guessing until the very last pages! Disclosure: I checked out this book from my local library. Thoughts are my own!

This is a whodunit soap opera-ish mystery. It did a great job of making everyone appear guilty at times and not guilty at others. Also all of the potential suspects are from the same circle so there’s lots of drama between them. They have history with each other and most of it isn’t good. Many of them hate one another actually, and almost everyone hated the person who was killed.
