I love Mary Higgins Clark and the books she writes with her daughter, Carol Higgins Clark, but have never read any of CHC books that she writes by herself.  Which book should I read first?  Aren't her books in a series?

Thanks

Heather

Yes, her books are in a series and I can't think of which one comes first.  But you can go to this website www.stopkillingme.com . They have alphabetical listings for all mystery authors,  click on C, then Carol Higgins Clark and you will be given a list of all the books she has written in order of publication dates.  That will tell which to read first and in what order.  And they are absolutely worth reading.  I actually like them better than Mary Higgins Clark.  (But don't tell her!)

Thanks, Jennifer!  I actually just copied and pasted the link and that worked.  ;)  For anyone else wanting to know, here's the list in order for the Regan Reilly series:

Decked, Snagged, Iced, Twanged, Deck the Halls (written with MHC), Fleeced, Jinxed, Popped, The Christmas Thief (written with MHC), Burned, Hitched, and Laced.

I really enjoy the CHC series.  They're mysteries but they have a bit of humor to them - they're light for the most part and enjoyable.  I'm waiting for Hitched to arrive from PBS and I got Laced from my mom!  Then I will be all caught up with her again.

I only read on CHC book and I wasn't terribly impressed.  I like her mother much more.

I also love MHC but not CHC's books.  Have you read MHC's Kitchen Privileges?  It's her memoirs and it's really good.  She has had an amazing life full of sad events.  A definite read for all Clark fans.
