By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER on Feb. 17 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Darcy and Erin have a friend who's doing research on the kind of people who place personal ads; they're helping her by answering some personals and going out on dates. Erin chooses one where the man signs himself, "Loves music, loves to dance" and he does, but he's also a serial killer.

This is my third Mary Higgins Clarke novel and it follows her exact formula: A beautiful heroine is stalked by a perverted psycho. She's involved with a bunch of red herrings who could all be the baddie and we won't know the villain's true identity until the last few pages, when our damsel is rescued by Prince Charming.

Clark's books are quick reads, good for the beach or a plane trip, but way too predictable and poorly written for me to read anymore of them. There are too many characters to keep track of, we're given way too much useless information about them, the dialog is full of grandiose words and phrases that aren't realistic, and we know the heroine will solve the mystery in the end. I like this book's title and the idea of a killer finding his victims through personals, but it's just not very well done.

I don't usually pick up Mary Higgins Clark mysteries, but it was late at night and this was readily available in my daughter's room. This was a better read then some of her other books I've come across. The plot was good. I've known and suspected that meeting people via the Internet is not the safest way to go. Too many predators out there. Clark did not make use of the concept enough...just used Internet like newspaper ads for singles. Many times people will talk to another person for months, even years before meeting them in person...and this could have been used more in the story.
My big complaint again is character development. I don't know where Clark gets the idea that describing the fancy clothes her characters wear is character development, but that seems to be what she is doing. I guess her books are trying to straddle genres here, being part mystery and part romance. Apparently the female characters also need to find someone 'right' to love in these books also.
Ok, enough nitpicking. For a quick read that demands no effort on the part of the reader this book is fine. Even I get tired of the science and bioethics books, and need a mindless break once in a while. :-)

Format: Hardcover
Set in New York City, two 28-year-old friends, Darcy Scott and Erin Kelley, decide to try their romantic luck at answering personal ads. However, when Erin answers an ad reading "Loves Music, Loves to Dance," she is later killed by the man who wrote it, a man who turns out to be a personal-ad serial killer. Darcy sets out to discover who he is by going on the same dates Erin did, but she may not live to find out when he targets her as his next victim.
"Loves Music, Loves to Dance" is a fast-paced mystery, due in part to the brief chapters. Each scene is perhaps 1-2 pages long, which I liked, but, at times, the short passages didn't flow very well together. Plus there were too many characters to keep track of--suspects and investigators--which was basically to keep the reader guessing the identity of the killer. It's not too hard to guess him, though, if you keep a sharp eye on one of the men at the beginning, but even I had my doubts halfway through. Overall, this was a good mystery. Clark fans should like this one.

I've read practically everything by Mary Higgins Clark and "Loves Music, Loves to Dance" is I'm pretty sure my favorite. It's not overly melodramatic or cheesy, it has an interesting plot, and it completely draws you in. I couldn't put it down! If I was just starting to read her books, I would want to read this one first. Really wonderful book!

This book hits the ground running. A serial killer is suckering women with personal ads. Very thorough story with several interesting characters. Even the suspects who washed out were interesting and well defined. This was my first MGC mystery and I had no idea I would be giving it 5 stars. I highly recommend this book. I really could not put it down it was so compelling.

Mary delivers a predicatable novel, filled with slow paced action and a very obvious who-dunnit approach ... While still keeping true to her traditional style, "Loves Music, Loves to Dance" is different from the other books. I have found some of Clark's books to be melodramatic and even boring, however this novel here is somewhat readable and will keep you flipping pages, if not a little grudgingly.
After reading several chapters, it became clear as to who the 'bad guy' was, and a lot of the time her writing was methodical and predictable. Not a new book, by any means, but satisfyingly light and fluffy.
A good book to read to bed, or in the car.

Id just like to say that I was dissapointed when i finished this book ..... because it was over and no other book could fill the expectations left behind from this book. I was on vacation in the bahamas when i read this and brought it to dinner with me everynight. My parents would say "were on vacation, were at a nice restaurant .. stop reading! your being rude!" but i couldnt put it down for a mere second. I can guarentee that you will be guessing until the last few pages, literally. What a great book. ANy MHC or mystery fan will fall in love with this book
