In her new thriller, Just Take My Heart, Mary Higgins Clark sets our pulses racing right from the start when Natalie Raines, a famous Broadway star, is murdered after accidentally discovering who killed her former roommate. But it seems Natalie had been in the process of divorcing her husband, Gregg Aldrich, a theatrical agent, and when a career criminal comes forward to claim that Aldrich hired him to kill his wife, a job he initially accepted and then decided to turn down, a grand jury indicts Aldrich for the murder of his wife.
Assistant prosecutor Emily Wallace is thrilled when her boss, Ted Wesley, assigns her to handle the high-profile case, even though it demands long hours of preparation. Thank goodness, Emily thinks, for her kind neighbor who offers to take care of her dog while she puts in long hours. She doesn’t know of his violent past when she gives him the key to her house.
Meanwhile, as Aldrich’s trial makes headlines, so does Emily, for the press soon reveals that she is the recipient of a transplanted heart. What they don’t know is that she’s begun to experience sentiments that defy all reason, along with an eerie suspicion that her life is now at risk.

This book became part of my hands as I didn't want to put it down. It started out predictable, but then...the ending!
Also enjoy Mary Higgins Clark!
Some of this was predictable, but enough mystery to make it a good read. MHC books are always somewhat predictable, but this is one I would recommend if you're like me and have taken a break for a while, wanting something better. This one is better. Would recommend this to MHC fans. Makes you think twice about home security...
I loved this book. Full of excitement, mystery, action. The only negative I have on this book is that the very end seemed rushed. Would have liked a little more detail in the ending of the story.
I didnt see this one coming- as usual I enjoy MHC's books. I would recommend it.
Good book - of course. Mary Higgins Clark is one of my favorites. I did have to keep flipping back with this one to remind myself of who was who. As with all of her books, this one has many characters.
