JUST TAKE MY HEART
Clark again offers an intriguing heroine and an intricately woven mystery. But
the opening murder happens too quickly
to develop a sense of empathy with the victim. The pace picks up with the introduction of heroine, who's immediately likable and, unbeknownst to her, in grave danger.
A chance meeting causes Natalie to realize the identity of her friend's killer, but she's silenced before she reveals him. Suspicion immediately falls on Gregg. Emily suspects that Gregg is innocent. Can she prove it without endangering herself? (SIMON AND SCHUSTER, Apr., 322 pp., $25.95)
