    Sometimes, you just want to sit back and be entertained - and this series, one of my favorites, never fails to satisfy. This one I finished in the equivalent of one day not long before the Thanksgiving holiday, providing a much-needed respite before my anxiety over whether the turkey and mashed potatoes will be done at the same time kicks in.Five years earlier, a prominent physician is murdered - shot just as he returned home from work. His emoti...

    I will never get tired of reading Mary Higgins Clark. I bought her very first book, 'Where Are The Children?', when it came out in 1975. I was a senior in high school and loved it! I've read it several times since then, too. I never, ever miss one of her books. She is 91 and has been on the bestseller lists for over 40 years now. She began writing a series with Alafair Burke 5 years ago. These books, the Under Suspicion series, document the produ...

    This is the first in the series that was a bit slow but we got the growth continues using in Alex and Laurie’s relationship and even Leo finding some love. The plot kept me guessing until near the end and then we are thrown for even more of a loop. Found this one good but the ending is what brought it from four stars instead of three. My quick and simple overall: good plots and ever-changing.
  • Aimee
    Intrigue, Suspense, and One Great Who-Dunnit!I have been a longtime MHC fan. I am 44 and have been reading the paperbacks with my mom since I was 12. So, already a fan, but Alafair Burke is a breath of fresh air and really adds that something extra to this Under Suspicion Series. I have followed it since I've Got You Under My Skin and I hope there are many more books to come.You Don't Own Me has one of those 'WHAAAAT??' moments that makes you thi...

    Five years ago, Dr Martin Bell was gunned down in front of his home and no one saw his killer. Martin's elderly parents are convinced their daughter-in-law Kendra killed him and they implore TV producer Laurie Moran to feature his murder on her TV show. For anyone who hasn't read books in this series yet, Laurie Moran produces a TV show that takes a look at cold cases. She signs up people to appear on camera who've been accused of the crime in ho...

    I think the books written by Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke get better with each one. I really enjoyed this one, and I did not guess the ending until almost the very end. I love Mary Higgins Clark but I can definitely see Ms Burke’s touch on these books. Great series!
  • Angela H.
    Laurie is a tv producer who was gathering information regarding a murder case for the show. As she digs into the case, she discovers lies buried upon lies that revealed the true killer and motive. Kendra has been accused for the murder for years and wants to clear your name. Well.....Surprised?.....She's innocent. I was not surprised of her innocence but loved how the plot moved with suspense and smoothness. The plot was balanced with suspense an...
  • Ellen
    3.5 starsI continue to enjoy this series. This one seemed to end before it began. Maybe because I listened to it at double speed, but I felt like they were barely starting the investigation before it was solved. I did enjoy Laurie and Alex's relationship. I'm glad that's back in order.
  • Lisa Konet
    Just when I thought I knew who the real murderer was just revealed I was wrong. I like that this installment of MHC Under Suspicion series WAS NOT predictable. I also like how Laurie's story and the same characters are present in the story. The writing and twists are even better in this book. Can hardly wait for the next one!
  • Melissa Foss
    For my first murder mystery novel, I’ve discovered I really enjoyed the genre! Always a sense of suspense and mystery that captivated me throughout the book. Not at all predictable but the story led me to believe it could be. I give it a 4 star rating because I found it a great novel but not mind blowingly awesome, perhaps due to the authors writing style. Also not a fan of stories that take place in NYC. They seem too commonplace in the world ...
  • Kristina Rasmussen
    Love these! Every time. The only reason I didn’t finish this one as quickly as the others is that I didn’t want it to end. I love the writing style, the characters and the way the storyline unfolds.
  • Donna Hines
    What tangled web of lies we weave....Just a few years earlier a prominent physician is murdered while his wife slept comfortably in bed.Now the only one that might help secure answers is Laurie - the producer who showcased the case on her show," Under Suspicion."The family is up in arms as they truly believe Kendra their daughter in law knows much more than she's saying in this matter and they want justice!Sure as heck nobody's perfect, we all ha...
  • jasmine jay
    This probably is a 4-star mystery, but the series itself is 5-star. It’s so fun to read, and I love trying to see if I can guess the bad guy. My sister can do it every time, but I’m about 50/50. I love Laurie Moran’s world...having a television show that revisits cold cases is such a fun setting. I’ve loved Mary Higgins Clark since I was little, so I am thrilled I can keep reading her work. I commend her on keeping up with the times and a...
  • Selah Pike
    The mystery was good, but the rich Manhattanite protagonists are getting boring.
  • Crystal Harmon
    This was the 6th book in this series and it did not disappoint. These two authors are a great team. I’m already ready and waiting for the next book in the series. If you like suspense books without strong language or graphic descriptions of death then this is the series for you.

    3 1/2 -4 stars
  • Tracy
    Lovely quick mystery
  • Linda Branich
    This was a well-written page-turner with a couple unexpected twists. Fans of Mary Higgins Clark will not be disappointed as she teams up with Alafair Burke in this book, especially for those who enjoy TV shows that attempt to solve cold cases.In this Under Suspicion project, Laurie Moran receives a letter from Dr. and Mrs. Bell, asking her show to prove that their daughter-in-law murdered their only son, another physician, a few years back. The p...
  • Natalie [genreneutralreader]
    Another cute entry into this series. This one is firmly in the category I would consider cozy mystery. I like the adventures or Laurie, Alex, Leo, Timmy, Jerry and Grace in a very PG rated NYC.
  • Laurel-Rain
    When we last saw Laurie Moran, she had recently become engaged to her show’s former host, Alex Buckley. Since then, the two have been happily planning a summer wedding and honeymoon, preparing for Alex’s confirmation to a federal judicial appointment, and searching for the perfect New York City home for their new life together.But then Laurie is approached by Robert and Cynthia Bell, parents of Dr. Martin Bell, a famously charming and talente...
  • Jessalee Shields-Dulaney
    I absolutely love this series (Under Suspicion) by Mary Higgins Clark & Alafair Burke. This one definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat. I haven't found a better duo for writing than these two. They really show their mysterious sides with this series. There is an addition of a love story, intrigue, drama, family upheaval and just old fashion "who done it". And putting it all in the version of a reality tv show is such a perfect way to prese...
  • Brenda
    This can be read as a stand-alone but to get the most of the characters I suggest you read this series in order. Kendra Bell was never charged with the murder of her husband, Dr. Martin Bell, and five years later his parents are still pushing for the police and the public to punish her. The deeper Laurie Moran, of the TV specials Under Suspicion, investigates Martin and Kendra the murkier things look.As Laurie & Alex plan a quiet wedding, their a...
  • Robbie
    Another addition to the Under Suspicion entertaining, quick read. As is typical, the culprit is apprehended and sent to jail and everyone else lives happily ever after. I enjoy these books as "light reading". There is no depth to any of the characters - everyone is either on the good side or the bad side. However, there is not a lot of effort or thought required of the reader and it is sometimes comforting to pick up the book and alr...
  • Suzanne
    An easy read; typical Higgins-Clark fare, but still interesting. I have ready the other "Under Suspicion" books and enjoy the characters. Like the fact that while the books are connected and, to an extent, build on the previous book, they can be read as stand-alone books. Laurie again finds herself in danger and there are so many (too many?) possibilities as the culprit: could it be the widow, the blackmailing stranger, the doctor/friend? You don...
    I had a different experience with this book because I listened to the audio book. I really enjoyed it and thought the story was well thought out. I love these characters and look forward to the next book.
  • Bice
    I like this series especially as audiobooks. Great for listening while taking Christmas Tree down. Very surprised as to “who dun it” Which is way better than rightly guessing killer before big reveal.
  • Carol Hennion
    This is another book in the Laurie Moran series, and as always, was very enjoyable. Laurie's wedding to Alex is getting closer and they are apartment hunting with a very aggressive realtor. There are bad guys, murder and mayhem - just the thing for us suspense seekers!
  • VickiLee
    TV producer of true crime program looks into the unsolved murder of a physician shot to death in his own driveway. I found this to be a moderately enjoyable novel although the characters weren’t given much depth.
