Just take my heart, by Mary Higgins Clark

Easter - chocolate to eat, friends and family to have fun with and a new Mary Higgins Clark title to read - what could be better? That was my Easter experience - Higgins Clark is a favourite of mine and I look forward to each new release. This old stager is perhaps a little formulaic, but she always delivers a good read, with likeable (and loathable) characters, a finely-tuned plot and plenty of twists, turns and red herrings to keep you guessing.
Just take my heart is no exception; it's a real page-turner. The plot centres around the high-profile trial of Gregg Aldrich for the murder of his estranged wife, Broadway star Natalie Raines. Widowed Emily Wallace is prosecuting the case and is firmly convinced of Aldrich's guilt. But there are many questions and disturbing elements to this case. And Emily may be the next victim of her seemingly helpful neighbour, a man with a violent past...
Rating - I give this 4/5 Not bad!
