My Thoughts:
It took me this long to read it because I just wasn't wanting to read. I wasn't in a slump, I just wanted to do other things (t.v./hulu, kindle games, computer game, etc).

This is the first book I have read by Mary Higgins Clark. I do now understand why she is popular, She is a good writer.

I came across this book only because I saw The Cinderella Murder first when I was ordering books from Thriftbooks. It wasn't until I went to look it up (don't remember what made me look it up on goodreads), I noticed that it said it was book two, in a series of four books. When I read a comment to read this one first to get a better understanding of what took place in The Cinderella Murder, I went ahead and ordered this one.

When I found The Cinderella Murder, I had no intention of starting another series, and of course, I thought it was a stand-alone. But, I did enjoy I've Got You Under My Skin enough to go right into The Cinderella Murder (my thoughts coming soon).

This book does follow two different 'mysteries': (1) The killing of her husband (this is in the summary) and (2) the murder that the show [Under Suspicion] is centered around. The Whodunit in the #2, I kind of began suspecting them kind of immediately, but had my doubts, at first. Then, as the story went on, it became more evident (which is a trend I noticed in both books but more about that later).

I do love all of the characters, but especially Dad (Leo), Laurie (Main Character) and Timmy (Laurie's son). I love how close they all are and will do whatever it takes to protect each other.
