Product Description

From Amazon

Imagine Nick and Nora Charles with a taste for politics and none for gin, and you'd be pretty close to Mary Higgins Clark's Henry Parker Britland IV and his attractive young wife, Sandra O'Brien Britland, known as Sunday. Henry, possessor of an enormous inherited fortune and known as one of America's sexiest men, has just finished his second term as president of the United States and is happily retired at 44, puttering around his New Jersey country estate. Sunday, who bootstrapped her way up from a modest working-class background, is a junior congresswoman with a reputation for smarts. The two met, romantically enough, on the eve of Henry's leaving office, fell madly in love, and were married six weeks later. In this collection of four pleasantly readable stories, the sleuthing duo catch the murderer of a statesman's flashy amour, endure Sunday's kidnapping and mastermind her rescue, solve the 34-year-old mystery of the disappearance of a foreign prime minister from the Britland family yacht, and reunite a ransomed boy with his parents at Christmas. Of the four, "They All Ran After the President's Wife" may be the best plotted, and has a particularly amusing McGuffin in the character of a caviar-loving terrorist. While the suspense is on the mild side throughout, the romance is lighthearted but sincere, and the occasional flashes of wit are dryly appealing. It's a bonbon, to be enjoyed for its brief sweetness. --Barrie Trinkle

From Publishers Weekly

An appealing husband-and-wife sleuthing team are the stars of the four stories in Clark's new collection. Her protagonists are Henry Parker Britland IV, the 44-year-old former president of the U.S., and his recent bride, plucky congresswoman Sandra ("Sunday") O'Brien Britland. Debonair, wealthy Henry and smart-as-a-whip Sunday enjoy their estates in New Jersey, Florida, the Bahamas and Provence, and other perks of Henry's patrician background, such as a private jet and an elegant yacht. But they keep getting embroiled in dicey situations. The best entry, "They All Ran After the President's Wife," features two genuinely eccentric and creepy evildoers and a kidnapped Sunday in peril. Although nicely set up and suspenseful, it suffers from a rushed denouement. A pleasant diversion, "Hail, Columbia," takes place aboard the Britlands' yacht, from which the prime minister of Costa Barria had disappeared 32 years earlier after having given the then 12-year-old Henry an envelope, which has also vanished?until clever Sunday finds the missing link. A kidnapper from the wrong side of the tracks who improbably speaks fluent French is the drawback to credibility in "Merry Christmas/Joyeux Noel," and the lead entry, "A Crime of Passion," is a clunky no-brainer. But Clark uses every occasion to celebrate her gorgeous newlyweds' delirious happiness and misses no opportunity to cater to those readers who favor a little romance with their mild suspense. 800,000 first printing; Literary Guild main selection.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Henry Parker Britland IV is the ex-president of the United States. Newly married, he wants nothing more than to relax with his beautiful young wife. Unfortunately, the ex-president seems to attract trouble, and in MY GAL SUNDAY, he and his new wife find themselves in the middle of three precarious situations. Three short stories comprise this short book, and the mysteries seem to get progressively worse.
I read one novel by Mary Higgins Clark prior to this one, and my expectations were high. However, I was incredibly disappointed with these three short mysteries. They were predictable, dull, and uninteresting. And worse, the endings were sudden, leaving me with the distinct impression that the story didn't so much end, but that Mrs. Higgins Clark had run out of things to say. Hey, maybe she became as bored with the characters while writing as I did while reading. Mr. Ex-President was much too whiny for my taste, while his lovely wife seemed more like Elle Woods in Legally Blonde than the wife of a president in her own right.
The book's only redeeming quality is that it's a quick read. At only 206 pages, it'll only kill one afternoon out of your life.

Summary: Henry a former president and his wife Sandra O' Brien Britland also known as Sunday have just found out that there former Secretary of State Tommy has just been accused of the murder of his wife Arabella Young. But the twist is that Tommy does not remember the night. He was found laying on his bed with his wife�s dead body laying on the library floor. He was accused of killing his wife and then going back up to bed like it was nothing. Henry and Sunday decided to take matters into there own hands and investigate close friends and the housekeeper. They find out from witnessing a revolver in their face that the killer of Arabella was clearly the housekeeper Lillian. Later on while Sunday was in her car with two secret service agents, they have been knocked out by a gas bomb of some sort, and Sunday has been kidnapped. Now Henry is on a search to find out who has captured his wife and where she is being held. But Henry doesn�t know that Sunday knows the captor is a former employee that Sunday has defended. Who knows will the captors give Sunday back safely once they get their demands or will they turn on them and kill her?
Review: I think this book was great because it has mystery, horror, and suspense. I think that mysteries are great books to read because they keep your wandering what�s going to happen next, and it keep you wanting to read more and more. I also think this book was great because the plot is exciting and always changing, not like some books who drag on with the same thing and go on and on. I liked this book because it kept me reading and since I�m not a big reader it still kept me wanting more.
Recomondation: I recommend this book to any one who likes to ready mystery, horror, and suspense.

My Gal Sunday is a very suspenseful novel filled with mystery and investigating. At first, the stories start off dull but after a few pages it gets interesting. The suspense builds and builds, making it hard to put down.
The novel is based on the adventurous life of former president, Henry Parker Britland IV and his newly wed bride, Sandra O'Brien Britland. Sandra is better known as Sunday. Each day brings another situation and is filled with trouble.
Clark develops four stories of Sunday and Henrys adventures. Sunday seems to be getting into trouble all the time. Sunday is a very intelligent woman and once she gets involved she never gives up until she succeeds. She gets involved in an unsolved murder case of the secretary of states' ex-wife Arabella. Then she is held hostage by a former client and will not be left go until a dangerous terrorist is freed. Sunday is almost killed many times but she is a very brave person and never gives up. Henry is determined to save her and try to help her get out. He uses his popularity and wealth to help her.
I really enjoyed this book. If you are into solving mysteries with a twist of love, you'll love this novel!

This book was just terrible. I know Mary Higgins Clark has recently gotten married and she may have tried to transfer some of that romance into this book about a newlywed couple. But what may be romantic between two real people in love can be sickening to read.
I think she wrote more about the color of Sundays hair and how her husband would miss her if she died than she did with the plot of the stories.
None of them made sense, you weren't given enough information to make them either suspenseful or for you to care about the people.
It reminded me of some of Agatha Christie's books where she would bring in a person that had never been mentioned before, just to solve the mystery.
The first & fourth story were just boring.
The second story was probably the most ridiculous.
Sunday was saved by giving a clue that nobody would have ever been able figure out. But in just short time, under all the stress of her being kidnapped, Henry was able to solve the mystery, by remembering exactly what he was wearing the first time they met and getting the suspects name from the clue she gave him.
The third story had an interesting concept. She should have filled it out and made a novel from it, with other leading characters.
I'm happy that she has a new book out and can't wait to read it. I hope, however, that I never have to read any more stories with Sunday and Henry
