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.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Mary Higgins Clark has such a great way of capturing your attention right off the bat and keeping it to the last sentence. Her twists and turns made this one of my favorite books by this author.

As always, Mary Higgins Clark delivers an easy-to-read thriller that hooks you from the very beginning. The book actually had me going back and forth between believing the main character to be guilty or innocent. A great page turner for sure!
Enjoyed this book very much....easy read...which is great when you are sitting at the beach or the pool. Nice summertime reading. Would recommend to any MHC fan.....but as always, the first books are always the best.
I enjoyed the book but, I figured out who was the bad guy early on. I thought it was kind of a knock off of Dean Koontz Your Heart Belongs To Me.
I always enjoy reading MHC. This book kept me interested.
