|Review:||The apple didn't fall far from the tree - Carol Higgins Clark's writing is nearly as delightful to enjoy as that of her mother's, Mary Higgins Clark. Let's hit the high points, first: her characters are hilarious. The mystery to be solved is intriguing, but not so complicated that this becomes a hard read. The setting is wonderful as always is the case with New York City. Savvy Regan Reilly is a terrifically likable detective who uses brains and luck to cobble together a picture of what is happening to her friend Thomas' beloved Settlers' Club. Fun, fun, fun. The drawbacks: a bit predictable; a bit too reliant on coincidence. All in all, though, a fun read from a great author. See for yourself!|
