I enoyed this immensely and it is one of my favorite books by MHC. I didn't hit on the identity of the murderer right away. MHC's work is filled with sympathetic characters, particularly the heroine, I am always left feeling that if she really existed, I would want to add her to my circle of friends. A knack MHC usually achieves with all of her characters. An enjoyable read from a consistently good author.

do people feel the need to completely summarize the novel?? No one wants to read these reviews because they are simply recapturing what the novel is about. It's a REVIEW -- review it!! Anyways, I give this book five stars, because like all of MHC's books, it's very intriguing. I like the backdrop of the fashion world. Highly recommended!

While my Pretty One Sleeps was a typical Mary Higgins Clark novel, filled with suspense, mystery, and murder. While it was a good book, it wasn�t one of Clark�s better novels. Clark is a good writer, however; While my Pretty One Sleeps isn�t as good as some of her others like All Around the Town for example. The plot was well developed and the characters were believable.
Neeve Kearny is a high-class New York clothing storeowner who has a good intuition of the disappearance of one of her best customers, Ethel Lambston. Ethel is a famous gossipy author, who suddenly disappears without a trace. No one seems to notice or cares that Ethel is missing except for Neeve. After police finally realize she is missing and not out on one of her infamous get-a-ways, they find her body in a nearby park. Suspects start popping up and the police start a search for Ethel Lambston�s murderer. Ethel�s nephew moves into her apartment and starts inheriting her fortune. Him being her only kin he is surprisingly not disturbed by his aunt�s death, which makes him a main suspect for the police. Another suspect pops up which is Ethel�s ex-husband. He was the last to see Ethel alive and neighbors heard them in an enraged argument. Neeve Kearny struggles with her friendly client�s death and it brings back memories of her mothers� death, which happened 2 decades before. With a twisting and mysterious ending the two deaths are intertwined with a shocking murdered.
This was my forth Mary Higgins Clark novel that I have read, even though it was good, I must say it wasn�t one of the best.

Ethel Lambston's body was found. The main suspects for the murder are: Douglas Brown, her nephew who will get all her money if she dies (she is rich), and her ex-husband, Seamus Lambston who has been giving her alimony checks ever since the divorce. All the clues point to both the suspects.
When Neeve's mother was killed, her family thought it was Nicky Spetti, but when Ethel's throat is the same as the one on her mother's neck, Neeve thinks otherwise.
I liked this book a lot. There were three suspects, and you never know who did it until the last four pages. It was a page-turner. Also, this book was just real confusing, and that is what makes it so good. It is just one of those books that you can't put down. Wouldn't you like to read a book like this? I am pretty sure that I would. That is why I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in reading it.
I read tons of books than this one. In the others you normally find out who killed the person in the middle, but then you have to find the person. In this one you find out in the last pages, and the person is right there. I think that this is one of Marry Higgins Clark's best books. I may have rated it a four, but that is because I think it could have ended a little bit sooner. I don't think that it should've been dragged on so long. It kind of made the book a little bit boring. Also, the book itself could have been more into the story. I mean, it really didn't need the part about her mom dieing, that could've been left out and they still could've found out who the murderer is, because it is a book, not real life/
