Really a good quick read - especially nice around Christmas!
Kept me on the edge of my seat so I ended up reading it all in one night.
good, quick read. nice Christmas mystery.
Pretty good for a holiday novella. I am not a particular fan of Mary Higgens Clark and have never read Carol. I enjoyed this. It was a quick mystery with suspense, mystery and romance. From Amazon.com-Three days before Christmas, Luke Reilly, who owns a string of funeral homes, and his young female driver, Rosita Gonzalez, are kidnapped for ransom. Luke is the husband of Nora Regan Reilly, a bestselling mystery writer based somewhat on Mary Higgins Clark; both are parents to Regan Reilly, Carol Higgins Clark's series detective (Twanged, etc.). Regan gets on the case at once, but she doesn't make much headway until she pairs up with Alvirah Meegan, the cleaning woman who turned private eye after winning a $40-million lottery in Mary Higgins Clark's Weep No More My Lady. (Here, Regan and Alvirah make each other's acquaintance at a dentist's office.) Meanwhile, Luke and Rosita remain chained on a small boat offshore from New Jersey as their two bumbling kidnappers plan, execute and bobble a ransom run. The boat starts to sink. Will Luke and Rosita drown? There's probably not a reader alive who thinks they will, and it'll surprise no one when Regan and Alvirah trip over clues as big as Christmas trees to save the day.
Both M and C make a good team.

A story with Regan Reilly and Alvirah Meehan.Has lots of twists and turns. This is the first Mary Higgins Clark book I've read and will read more.
Exciting small book with the "who done it " style of the author
I finished this book in one sitting. Not because the book was that well written or that engrossing, but because it felt like something I read in grade school. Roberts should be ashamed of herself for this disaster.
I really enjoyed this book, was quick and easy
A heartwarming story of suspense, with a hearty dose of holiday cheer, from Mary Higgins Clark and her daughter Carol Higgins Clark.
