    Needed a quick easy read for the plane ride...we'll see if i regret my choice ...... Meh. It was an ok book I guess. A few things bothered me about it. I really don't need to know, in detail, what each character is wearing in EVERY scene. I don't care that one guy in this paragraph is wearing dark courdory pants with a white button shirt and a smart jacket. Or that another character went home and changed from a red sweater blouse into jeans and a yellow t-shirt. It's Needed a quick easy read for the plane ride...we'll see if i regret my choice ......

Or that another character went home and changed from a red sweater blouse into jeans and a yellow t-shirt. It's not integral to the plot, and it doesn't build the character at all. Speaking of building characters, all of the characters in this book were flat. Oh and I really don't need to know EXACTLY what time every thing is starting. It seems like every new section started with "At quarter of four....At quarter of ten....At ten of nine..." Does it really matter? Can't, after two billion books, can the author come up with a better section opener? The plot itself was interesting, and the whodunit became a little predictable. (I myself would have LOVED to have had the brother do it...that would have been MUCH more of a surprise). I can't say I won't ever read a Mary Higgins Clark book again, but I certainly won't expect anything if I do.

    To say that Mary Higgins Clark is a genius at what she does would be a huge understatement. Nonetheless, this novel proves that there is no one better than her at thrillers and suspense novels than her and here is why: Loves Music, Loves to Dance was published in 1991 and it proved to be one of the biggest bestsellers of that year. It was later turned into a very unsuccessful film but that mattered very little, the novel still sells well and it is a fan favourite amongst the readers.

Nonetheless, this novel proves that there is no one better than her at thrillers and suspense novels than her and here is why: Loves Music, Loves to Dance was published in 1991 and it proved to be one of the biggest bestsellers of that year. It was later turned into a very unsuccessful film but that mattered very little, the novel still sells well and it is a fan favourite amongst the readers. In fact, according to Good Reads, it is the author’s most read novel after Where Are The Children? Which is not surprising, considering the formula that the writer applies for this brilliant bit of story-telling. It is also worth mentioning that this the author’s 20th novel and it marks a defining point: before and after. As usual, Mary Higgins Clark gives us a list of character whom we easily identify as good and bad. The good guys are successful, they have good jobs and good reputations, unlike the bad guys, who most often are people that work minor jobs and have committed some sort of felony or are just very creepy. This is the formula that the author uses in most of her books. The exception in this particular work of fiction is that Mary Higgins Clark gives the story a twist that not only does it leave the reader speechless, but it also makes us think about our own prejudices. Instead of telling us who the killer is, and making the story about the plot line, which is what the author does in most of her books anyways (including Two Little Girls in Blue) the writer points the finger at one of the characters that seems to be cut out for murder, but at the end, the real murderer is revealed. This leaves the reader, stunned and well… surprised. Love it or hate it, this is what makes this novel so interesting, that by the end of the read, one ends up analysing one’s own prejudices. Did I think that this guy couldn’t do the crimes because he was rich and successful? In true Mary Higgins Clark fashion, at the end, the story is resolved and everyone’s happy. Afterall, the author herself has said that this should always be an element of hope. To read the full review on Medium, click on the link below: https://medium.com/@michel.narvaez.08...

    This is the second Mary Higgins Clark novel I read after a long hiatus of her novels, and I have to say my expectations for this novel were high. It sounded interesting, and when my sister was reading it, she gave it high marks (so did the reviews I read prior to reading this novel). However, when I finally got around to reading it, my sister couldn’t remember much of the story or any of the characters. That should have told me that my expectations for this novel were too high.

However, when I finally got around to reading it, my sister couldn’t remember much of the story or any of the characters. That should have told me that my expectations for this novel were too high. And, they were. The story started out well, but as I kept reading I became more and more disappointed with it. From the start, I did not care much for the protagonist, Darcy… at all. There was just something about the way she came across. I didn’t care much for her two female friends either. All three gave off the same but wrong vibe. There are too many characters in this story and some of them had no big impact to the plot that it is obvious they were thrown in the story to be red hearings. And, because of this, whenever they came up in the novel it was like “Who cares?” I read this novel soon after reading Mary Higgins Clark’s While My Pretty One Sleeps; which is about fashion designers. So, it is understandable that there are many descriptions of the characters’ clothes/outfits. However, the constant fashion tidbits gets annoying in Loves Music, Loves to Dance after the first couple of descriptions. It has been awhile since I read Mary Higgins Clark novels, and I can’t remember if this is something she does in all her novels. It could be. Overall, this novel was not one of my favorites. Too many characters take away from the story line, and, after awhile, it starts to become a dull read. Also, if you have read just one of her books, you can immediately tell who the murderer is. I gave this novel two starts becomes there were one or two characters that were semi-interesting.

She meets a variety of people who quickly become suspects. Clark's characterisation is always weak, but that doesn't matter so much in this book where the suspense is pretty high. I simply wanted to know who the real killer is behind the mask of the amiable man. It's a quick and fun read.

    This is one of the creepier books that I have read. I picked it up off a pile of books my grandmother was giving to us and low-and-behold was this catching, poetic title. It was too disturbing the first time I tried so I put it on my shelf and waited about a year. After all that time It still was bugging me that I didn't know what was to happen. So I picked it up, read it again. And I absulutely loved it. It was a great plot and it had a satisfactoringly twisted murderer.

I reccomend to just about anyone who still loves a night filled with jumping and looking outside your window for that burgular you just KNOW you heard. Read it, love it, reccomend it. Repeat.

    Anyone remember newspaper personal adds? Yeah they are all but gone now as the internet continues to take over our lives. but once upon a time, they did exist and in "Loves Music, Loves to dance" there's a serial killer lose preying on women who use personal adds.

What a mystery! While some may find it dated, I still love this book and read it every so often. It revolves around two best friends, Darcy and Erin who are involved in a research project requiring them to meet men doing these personal adds. When one of the ladies is murdered, the other finds her death is linked to the experiment and she must find out which "admirer" is the murderer. This is just a genuine good mystery that features alot of suspects! It's fast paced and involving and I enjoyed it greatly even though I was wrong about who done it. There are many possible choices, a huge pool of suspects and it really is difficult to figure out! I have read other books by Higgins Clark but I think this one is my favorite. This is an "oldie but goodie" Highly recommended to mystery lovers.

    Catching up once again on a book I inherited from my mom. This one is a suspense thriller in the mold of most of what Mary Higgins Clark has written and was first published in 1991, making it one of the earlier of her suspense novels. The plot surrounds Darcy and Erin, a couple of 20-something ladies who decide to add more fun to their dating lives by answering personal ads from eligible men. However, Erin goes missing and her body is later found dead, wearing one of her regular shoes Catching up once again on a book I inherited from my mom. This one is a suspense thriller in the mold of most of what Mary Higgins Clark has written and was first published in 1991, making it one of the earlier of her suspense novels. The plot surrounds Darcy and Erin, a couple of 20-something ladies who decide to add more fun to their dating lives by answering personal ads from eligible men. However, Erin goes missing and her body is later found dead, wearing one of her regular shoes and one very nice high-heeled dancing slipper. The incident fits the profile of a serial killer case. While Darcy, of course, is devastated, she is unwilling to let the cops and FBI work the case. She decides to arrange dates with all the same guys that Erin had dated in a crazy attempt to identify the killer. What she doesn’t realize is that the killer has marked her for his next victim. I realize I’m not the target market for most Mary Higgins Clark books, but I do appreciate a well-written novel and can even enjoy stories that lean toward the chick-lit style. While the plot was fairly straight-forward, the very idea of Darcy choosing to date potential killers was just ludicrous. Numerous characters were thrown into the mix, with quite a few being various types of creeps for Darcy to date and for us readers to consider as potential serial killers. While many of them were truly creepy, it wasn’t hard to pick out the real killer quite early on and I found myself spending most of the novel waiting for everybody else to catch on. The author does a very good job of setting the scene and writing in the suspense, but I found the characters to be flat and the plot simply too predictable. It was like watching an episode of a typical TV cop show. Overall I am awarding 3 stars because despite the negatives, it was a nice (if tame) escape.

    Wow! what an awesome book. read the whole thing in a day and a half. This book is intense for beginning to ende. Just when you think you have it figured out, another character or angle comes into play. My heart was actually pounding in my chest at one point(ok, at a few points) Readers of this genre like to be kept on edge and Clark does not disappoint. Highly recommend to all suspense lovers. You will not be let down

    When I was in middle school, Mary Higgins Clark was my favorite author besides, perhaps, K. A. Applegate. I loved her stuff, and even embarked on writing a novel of my own that is in many ways like this book (I have no idea where the manuscript is and I hope no one ever sees it, as it is awful in the special way that first book attempts are). The thing about MHC is that her stuff is absolutely workable in a formulaic format; yes, you always suspect everyone because you know there is a deep love When I was in middle school, Mary Higgins Clark was my favorite author besides, perhaps, K.

The thing about MHC is that her stuff is absolutely workable in a formulaic format; yes, you always suspect everyone because you know there is a deep love of red herrings in the writing. Yes, you know the heroine is going to end up with one of the lovely and overly described men and you are almost more interested in figuring out which one of them is the romance rather than the villain. And yes, it is very fun to be in 90s universes, where it is omg so amazing and posh that a character has a cellular phone attached to his car. But it works, and you don't really see the ending coming, and the characters are fun and semi-real and it's just a nice rainy day read about personal ad creepers that makes me wonder what MHC would do with newer creations like MySpace and eHarmony.

    Darcy Scott convinces her best friend, Erin Kelley to participate in the research for a documentary on personal ads by playing and answering a few of them. A couple of weeks later, Erin is dead, strangled and wearing mismatched shoes after one of her dates and Darcy, guilt-ridden, decides to find the murdered, no matter how many dates it takes.

There were simply too many characters in this book, most of which had little to nothing to do with the main story arc and just inserted into the storyline to keep everyone guessing. Which would be a good thing if the fact every single one of those characters had to have at least one paragraph dedicated to them and/or their inner workings and/or their friends/family didn't make this story rather choppy. It felt all over the place and this jumping sideways from character to character made for a rather poor reading experience. Especially in the last chapter, during the big finale, when the story kept jumping from the killer and victim to the rescue party and back. The choppiness of narration diffused the suspense too much. The main protagonist, Darcy Scott, also left much to be desired, merely augmenting the problems of the story. She wasn't exactly TSTL, but she was an idiot. What did she think to accomplish by going on all those dates? She wasn't a detective, she wasn't law enforcement, and she had absolutely no skills or idea as to what danger she was putting herself into. Case in point, she failed to see the killer as the guy was right there, in front of her nose, because she was just so nice.

    Loves Music, Loves to Dance was a solid 3 to 3.5 star novel by Mary Higgins Clark. The story follows Darcy Scott as she investigates the murder of her best friend Erin Kelley. The pair had been helping a television producer friend with a story about personal ads and dating. Erin's death is similar to a 15 year old unsolved murder of Nan Sheridan; it's unclear if Erin is the victim of a copycat or if the original murderer had struck again.

Erin's death is similar to a 15 year old unsolved murder of Nan Sheridan; it's unclear if Erin is the victim of a copycat or if the original murderer had struck again. I personally thought the story had too many potential suspects. The myriad of men that Darcy dates to get information confuses the actual men important to the story. It was difficult to keep the characters straight simply because there are so many. For example Jay the jeweler disappeared for dozens of chapters, when he reappeared I had to flip back to refresh who he was. The same could be said for Doug. The 'suspects' as characters are not fully defined and distinct until nearly the end of the novel, and even then it's still murky (view spoiler)[ what was Doug's connection to Nan? Was the Doctor the mystery man in the photo? How was there no indication that the Doctor was a psychopath? (hide spoiler)] But the story was well written and engaging, a solid read that is worth the time.

    Mary Higgins Clark doesn't have quite the knack for characterization that my greatest favourites (James, Robinson) do, and her dialogue often feels a bit stilted to me, but she atones for it in large part by nice, clear structures. In this case, she sets up a couple of straw men for her serial killer, carefully dropping clanging hints suggesting one or the other in the final sentence of each cliff-hanger chapter. They are suitably unsympathetic, too.

I was interested to see that although this book was published in 1991, long before the catchphrases of serial killer profiling became a common part of the cultural soup through various TV shows, she's referencing the FBI's Behavioural Science Unit and the trophy-hunting behaviour of the "classic" sexual predator - and making the latter an integral part of her plot. The title's phrasing nicely suggests the personal ads which are also a part of the plot; though if she were writing this novel today, no doubt Higgins Clark would have had her characters write and answer them on the internet rather than through newspapers and the mail. A quick, enjoyable read that whiled away a couple of long commutes.

    Recently I needed a book to read as my back was suffering and I could not work outdoors. Arne found this one for me and it served the purpose: it kept me occupied as I rested. The cover claims it is a New York Times best seller and, well, that is nice. It kept my interest BUT it is not a great book. The character development consits of Clark's telling us what he/she is wearing and maybe something about eye color. I have not read Clark before and may not again. Do I sound too much like a skeptic?

    So this was supposed to be a mystery-thriller. But too bad I realized "who did it" pretty early in the book. I found this book bland and boring. A not-so-bad read on a train when you want to allow your thoughts to gather & you don't care if there are people chattering next to you, but all in all, not a satisfactory experience. I could not bond with the characters, I did not fully understand the killer's mind and motif, I could not feel the grief and pain the author may have wanted me to feel So this was supposed to be a mystery-thriller.

    I wasn't that impressed. I had heard good things about this author, but I honestly had the entire book figured out the minute I met the killer. It took me forever to finish because of that. I have a few more of her books to try, but if they're anything like this one, I think I'll pass. Sorry to all of you Mary Higgins Clark fans out there, I just need more to sink my teeth into.

    This is the book that introduced me to the genre of "feisty lady solves a murder, almost gets killed in the process, and is rescued at the last minute by the man she met circa page 35 who is vaguely described as "cute" and ends up riding off into the sunset with said feisty lady." Good airplane/beach/boring receptionist job books.

    Really enjoyed this novel. Mary Higgins Clark's story about the Slipper Killer was exciting, at times eerie and scary! The character Darcy was strong and determined and added so much to the plot of the book. I never guessed the killer, so was astounded to discover who it was, especially as there were a few possibles!
