Kerry McGrath is a dedicated prosecutor and a devoted mother. When her daughter’s face is cut in a car accident, Kerry is relieved that the plastic surgeon who treats her is the eminent Dr. Charles Smith. Then Kerry notices something bizarre. Two of Smith’s patients bear an uncanny resemblance to Suzanne Reardon, a young woman killed eleven years earlier. Why would Dr. Smith create look-alikes of a murder victim? A chilling tale of obsession by America’s reigning queen of suspense.


What I Adore

I wouldn’t deny the fact that Marry Higgins Clark is one of my favorite authors. I became a fan of hers after reading “Loves Music, Loves to Dance”, which was also the very first from hers that I’ve read. I always love how she makes every reader won’t stop reading her story.

This book kept me glued to it. Never really saw the ending coming. I also like that even though it’s a suspense book, she incorporated some humor and romance in it. I’m even one of Kerry and Geoff’s loveteam fans!

Her style of “who done it?” is really the best. I always struggle on naming the real culprit in all her books and until now, I’m still trying. I thought this time, I would finally point out the real suspect. But I was surprised how at the end of the story everything changed and I still suck with all of my guesses, hahaha.

What I Adore the Least

The plot of the story was cleverly written that makes it very interesting. So far, no dull moments encountered. But there are times that I feel that Robin, Kerry’s daughter sounded more like a grown up than a 10 year old kid.

Final Thoughts

As always, everything written by Mary Higgins Clark has been excellent with the elements of suspense, romance and humor. Let Me Call You Sweetheart was a novel full of suspense and wonder, the kind that keeps you right on the edge of your seat until the very last page is turned. If you love good suspense thrillers, then this is the right one for you, wink.
