I have to disagree w. previous reviewers and say that I couldnt get thru this book. The storyline centers around the Gregg Aldrichs who is accused of murdering his wife and the life of the prosecutor who has a stalker she is unaware of~Sounds great but the book doesnt deliver! Too many unbelievable storylines,characters, and details that fill the book unneccesarily (such as the emergence of a donor's memories in the recipient of a heart transplant). I jumped around to see the outcome, realizing how the climax left you hanging w/ an unbelievable silly ending...The court room drama is completely different style for the author and I hope she doesnt continue to write these types of books~I want the old Mary Higgins Clark writing style back-just a great who-dunnit

Just like all her previous novels, I was floored at how several strings of plot that seemed to have nothing to do with each other all ended up fitting together like puzzle pieces at the end. Her characters are top-notch, as usual, and she just tells a great, fast-paced story. I won't say anymore in case of spoilers, but if you're a fan, just read it!

I am a loyal reader of MHC and feel she has developed much better plots than this one.

This was a wonderful novel. As usual Mary Higgins Clark has come through with another page-turner. The characters, story line, and descriptions draw you right in and keep you guessing what will be next. There are so many suspects to choose from and several sub-plots to keep you on your toes. And of course the main suspect is "hidden" but very close to the main character's "heart." If you enjoy Mary Higgins Clark's body of work you will not be disappointed. If this will be your first "encounter" with her work you will look forward to reading more. Each time I finish one of her novels I look forward to the next one. Enjoy this book.

Once again Mary Higgins Clark has written a great book. I look forward to April every year so I can order her newest release and she has yet to disappoint me. If you love her you will love this book, if you never read her work you should start!!

I have read every one of MHC's books and find it hard to believe that she would use another author's idea for a book. I find Mary Higgins Clark is a wonderful author and look forward to all of her books.

I've always looked forward to MHC's books. Usually, I can count on being pulled into the story from the start and don't want to put it down until I've finished it. I share my copy with at least five other people who love her books, too. Unfortunately,"Just Take My Heart" was extremely disappointing to me. It was disjointed and seemed to leave out a lot of important information. For starts, the whole side-plot about Emily having a heart transplant was totally under-developed and the multiple references to her husband's death in combat should have been better developed. Zach -- the creepy neighbor -- was just a red herring? Come on, Mary, what are the chances of someone knowing two unrelated serial killers? Highly unlikely! And it would have been nice to learn more about the murder of Natalie's friend/roommate, which set the stage for her own murder years later. I made myself finish the book, but I felt totally betrayed by its lack of cohesiveness and quality writing. This may be the last MHC I read and I will definitely NOT recommend it.

MHC brings me into her books as soon as I open them. I love her way with words. Can't wait for the next one.

I had the privilege to have my book signed by Mary Higgins Clark and her daughter at a Manhattan Barnes and Noble for the promotion of "Just take my heart", and "Cursed". It was a real treat to meet them, they are lovely ladies. Mary Higgins Clark is always a delight to read, I'd like thank her to keep writing and look forward for the next one !

Not nearly as good as her earlier works. Boring.

She writes well. I keep trying to guess who did it. I still come up wrong. If you enjoy mysteries, this is a book for you. Her daughter and her have three Christmas mysteries. I recommend them all. Sorry, I couldn't think of all their titles.

I truly love all the hours of entertainment I received from her novels. I look forward to each and everyone of her books and I do not lend them out because I have each and every one of them. My Mother so enjoyed reading her as she has such a way of getting you right away and then I can't put the book down until I finish it.

This was a very good entertaining book. Even my husband read this book and enjoyed it. He didn't even guess about the ending and said that it was pretty good.

I have read all her books and enjoy her, but she needs to spice up the characters and the plots. This one is predictable. I am sorry i bought it in hard copy. Definitely something I would want in paperback.

Here again, predictable, Love Mary Higgins Clark, with her sub plots. this one however was not real deep like some I have enjoyed.

I absolutely LOVE Mary Hggins Clark, but I think she met her prime some time ago. Her last several books have been predictable and somewhat boring. She has never recaptured the glory of "Where are the Children" and "All Around the Town". I will continue to purchase her books, but will wait for the paperback version. Just take my Heart started with a twist, but after the 3rd chapter, was just so-so. If you are looking for something that doesn't require a lot of energy, go to the library and check out "Just Take My Heart". If you are looking for something more juicy, pick up Lisa Gardner, Erica Spindler, or Karen Rose. Mary Higgins Clark has some stiff competion.

It was a good beach read but not her best book writing.

Another good story from the great Mary Higgins Clark. Always suspenseful and entertaining. Looking forward to the next one.

I just finished this book and I'm sitting here on this site looking for something else of hers to buy. She always gets me and this time was no different. The characters, the plot, the whole story just kept me wondering. A wonderful read!

Just Take My Heart is a classic Clark- Thrilling and fast paced- without gore. The title and book cover implies it has to do with a character's heart transplant but . . .it really doesn't. All in all a good read for Clark fans

If you like MHC's other books than this one will be no different. It is another thriller that will have you turning the pages faster than you thought. If you have yet to read any of her other best-sellers, than this would be a good one to start with.

A celebrity of the literary world, Mary Higgins Clark, has woven a new tale of suspense involving the murder of successful Broadway actress Natalie Raines. Prior to her murder, Natalie accidentally identifies the suspected murderer of her actress roommate Jamie Evans as one of the guests congratulating her on her performance after the show. Unconsciously, she calls him "Jess," the pet name Jamie referred to him by during their relationship all these years ago and whose photograph Natalie still remembered-that same photograph that was stolen from Jamie's wallet after her unsolved murder. Shortly thereafter, Natalie is brutally murdered herself and the prime suspect becomes her estranged, theatrical agent husband Gregg Aldrich who previously stalked his wife and has a dubious alibi. He cannot remember where he was when Natalie was murdered, and his amnesia as well as previous spying on Natalie casts doubt on his role in the tragedy. As the court proceedings against Gregg begin, the stakes are high. The gorgeous assistant prosecutor Emily Wallace is soon in danger of being murdered herself, a dangerous serial killer is lurking on the loose, the star witness in Aldrich's trial is hiding something, and a detective involved in the investigation is acting suspiciously. The chapters are short and easy to read, as the suspense escalates up until the very end. Clark's writing is effortless and her plot certainly rivals Grisham's legal thrillers, while her characters-the grief-stricken single parent husband in danger of receiving a life sentence in jail, a TV host colleague torn between his job and personal friendship with the defendant, the heartbroken mother of the murdered actress, a convict willing to do anything to shorten his prison term, a psychologically troubled killer on the run, a scared couple whose information can turn the entire case around, and a lonely prosecutor with a personal tragedy-are hunting and memorable long after the last page has been read. While the fictitious celebrity life of Natalie Raines is not widely explored despite being the center of the court case, real life tragedies of celebrity lives cut short spring to mind as Clark exposes the flawed U.S. justice system for what it is. Evidence can get tampered, witnesses can be manipulated, jury can condemn the wrong party, lives are unnecessarily put at risk, and the powerful forces driving the trial are sometimes hidden behind the curtain instead of present in the courtroom. What Clark leaves us with is a portrait of the current state of events, reminiscent of the daily newscasts, where personal safety is frequently compromised and anyone is in danger of becoming Natalie Raines or Emily Wallace-a puppet in the hands of forces more powerful and well-connected than themselves, as lives hang by a thread and no one is what they seem.

The plot of this book sounds very similar to Dean Koontz's "Your Heart Belongs to ME". In his book, a heart transplant patient believes he is being haunted by his donor. I usually love MHC but it seems strange she would have this come out so soon after the Koontz book.
