Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my first Mary Higgins- Clark book, and I did not find it that great. I liked how she developed Lacey's character, but the so called romance betwwen her and Tom was nonexistent. Also I thought that there would be a more important reason for the murders of Heather, Isabelle and Max. Personally, I found it a bit dry. Although, I was not fascinated by this book, I will try another Higgins-Clark book!!

"Pretend You Don't See Her" is a typical Mary Higgins Clark novel about a beautiful, well-off young woman from East Coast who suddenly finds herself in a death peril but getting through this ultimately stressful part of her life, she even finds a MR. RIGHT in the process. Clark is easy to read for a non-native speaker like myself and fans of classic ol' stories like those penned by Agatha Christie should like her books, as the plot usually teems with many potential villains. However, the actual killer often hails from a circle close to the heroine (or her family), which at times renders the stories less believable, but more satisfying for mystery lovers.
This time (apart from a story which formally resembles any of Clark's detective novels like an egg resembles another egg), a reader has a chance to find out how such a thing as witness protection program works, in which a person (the heroine, realtor Lacey Farrell from New York) is given a whole new identity from the police in order to be protected from threatening deadly harm.
Despite some false clues Clark deliberately scatters throughout the story, "Pretend You Don't See Her" ranks among her most satisfying detective novels, along with "While My Pretty One Sleeps" and "Remember Me". But my personal favourite by her still remains "A Stranger Is Watching", a tale more psychological than detective, where a murderer is known from the beginning but that does not diminish the suspense. There, Clark got close to the best works of the queen of British psychology-crime fiction, Ruth Rendell.

I was very disappointed in this book. I usually enjoy Clark's novels, but this one was sort of a drag. It had a weak plot with even weaker characters. The romance aspect between Lacey and Tom seemed very forced. I wasn't engulfed but the story and plot like many of Clark's novels have done to me. I suggest All Around the Town. I found that novel much more interesting. This book was just dull. Nothing spectacular. Predictable, and very longwinded. I do not recommend this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this suspense tale, Lacey Farrell, a New York realtor, comes face to face with an elderly woman's killer in an apartment she is trying to sell. The woman's daughter recently died in an accident, but she told Lacey she believed it was murder, and gave Lacey the girl's journal to study. The killer now stalks Lacey, who must enter the witness-protection program and begin a new life. Lacey tries to piece together clues about the death of the woman's daughter by reading her cryptic journal.
"Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark writes about attractive, independent young women who are in peril. I always picture a young Jacqueline Smith playing all of her heroines. This novel is not one of her best. It is full to overflowing with a cast of forgettable characters meant to keep us guessing which one could be the villain. The plot unfolds at a snail's pace and is padded with minute and distracting details that lead nowhere. A new character, introduced in the last chapters, changes the outcome, which feels suddenly rushed and trite. Clark has written many nail-biting thrillers; Pretend You Don't See Her is not among them.

There's something infinitely satisfying about turning the last page of a good mystery novel and sighing in satisfaction. Mary Higgins Clark's PRETEND YOU DON'T SEE HER offers exactly this kind of contentment.
Lacey Farrell has a job she enjoys, selling real estate in her beloved New York City. When the apartment of a singer who had died in a car accident is put on the market, Lacey is glad for the opportunity to sell it. After all, it's in a great part of Manhattan, the asking price is six hundred thousand dollars, and it's sure to earn her a decent commission. She becomes friends with the late singer's mother, and one night as she goes to pay her a visit, she also unwillingly becomes a witness to her murder. Unfortunately, the killer sees Lacey as well, and she's then forced to join the witness protection program, where she struggles to make a new life for herself, constantly watching over her shoulder on the off-chance that the murderer may have finally caught up with her.
PRETEND YOU DON'T SEE HER kept me turning pages well into the night. I finished it quickly, as I found the fast paced writing style enjoyable. The characterization was intriguing. I genuinely liked Lacey, who came across as courageous, caring and altogether realistic. Her genuine feelings for her family and her attraction and unwillingness to lie to a man she met while in the witness protection program made her even more endearing. I found myself wishing that the relationship between her and Tom had been more detailed, but that's what I get for reading a mystery novel rather than a romance!
This was my first experience with one of Mary Higgins Clark's books, and it certainly won't be the last. She's indeed just as talented as her reputation led me to believe, and I look forward to reading more of her work.
