TWO LITTLE GIRLS IN BLUE by Mary Higgins Clark

Beth reviews TWO LITTLE GIRLS IN BLUE by Mary Higgins Clark (Simon & Schuster, 2006)

This book called to me the minute I laid eyes on it—a novel about kidnapping, murder, and twin telepathy. How could I not read it? Within two days, I was touting its wonders and looking into the special bonds of twins.

Parents Margaret and Steve Frawley celebrate the third birthday of their twin girls, Kathy and Kelly, at their new home. Later that evening, upon returning from a black-tie affair, the police are waiting to tell them the devastating news—the girls are gone and a ransom note has been left for $8 million. Thanks to Steve’s workplace all the demands are met. However, only Kelly is found, along with a dead man and a suicide note claiming Kathy was accidentally killed. The police slow their search, but Margaret will not give up. She believes Kelly and Kathy are in contact and slowly comes to find out her missing daughter is in “old Cape Cod.” Thanks to help from everyday people, the clues unite to bring Kathy home...but will it be in time? Who is the man behind this awful deed?

Do you think that James Patterson fans would enjoy Mary Higgins Clark?
I am not sure. I have really enjoyed some of her books, but others I have not. I think each of her books has to stand on its own. Some, like Two Little Girls in Blue, are similar to Patterson novels and therefore would more likely be enjoyed by his readers. Others are less thriller/suspense/mystery and his readers might not like them. However he has begun writing more "emotional" books like Sam's Letters to Jennifer. So basically, I guess it all depends on the reader.
