    Mary Higgins Clark never disappoints her readers and once again she has written another fast paced novel that will have you turning the pages at great speed. Just Take My Heart is action packed with mystery, crime, suspense and courtroom drama that will keep you guessing till the end. A compelling read which I thoroughly enjoyed. If you are a fan of this author then make sure you don't overlook this one. Highly recommended.

    Pretty good but had a lot going on and was covering too much for the size of the book. There were some good twists and turns but for the most part just too much going on in this size book. Still a good quick, read. My quick and simple overall: good but a bit too busy.

    Okay, so Mary Higgins Clark has been my all-time favorite author practically my whole reading lifetime. I would stay up all night reading her latest book and then re-read all of her old ones. I guess, all of my goodread friends and all your great recommendations for books that I've been reading has put a little damper on poor Mary Higgins... her books just pale in comparison. I will admit that I did stay up late to finish it, but it was pretty predictable and way too cheesy (I know, you would Okay, so Mary Higgins Clark has been my all-time favorite author practically my whole reading lifetime.

    Just Take My Heart was slow to get going and the trial took up the first half. I don't really like reading long drawn out trials. Also this book is full of coincidences, just unbelievably full of them.

It also seems like this book consisted of ideas for two separate books and for some reason Clark put them both into one. (view spoiler)[ I'm not sure why Mary Higgins Clark had two separate killers in this book that had no relation to each other. It was too much to me that the prosecutor of a murder case was being stalked by a serial killer who had nothing to do with the case she was working on. Maybe it was to throw us off so we would wonder if he wasn't who killed the girl from the other case too. If that was so, it failed. It was obvious to me that this guy had nothing to do with the other case, especially when he rattled off the names of the ex-wives he killed in his mind more than once, and her name was never one of them. (hide spoiler)] I pretty much figured out who killed Jamie and Natalie well before the book ended. Despite my complaints about this book I will probably still continue to read more books by Mary Higgins Clark, but probably not as many or as often.

    Just Take My Heart is a book about a correction in law enforcement and the legal profession. Emily Wallace caught her first major case as an assistant prosecutor after coming back to work after having a heart operation. However, the prosecuting of Gregg Aldrich for the murder of his ex-wife was not as straightforward as first thought by Emily.

Mary Higgins Clark does a great job of ensuring that I am involved with the plot. I like the way Mary Higgins Clark puts the twist and turns into Just Take My Heart. I love Mary Higgins Clark portrayal of her characters and the way she intertwines then throughout Just Take My Heart. The readers of Just Take My Heart will learn about donor's traits and memories in the recipient of a heart transplant. Also, the readers of Just Take My Heart will understand the legal problems when someone accused of a murder they did not comment. Just Take My Heart highlights correction in the legal system and the way it can affect everyone involved. I recommend this book.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I found this to be a little different from her other mystery novels, and I have read all of them. In this one, Emily Wallace is a prosecutor trying a man for murder but is fighting with her inner feelings of his innocence. Her star witness is not exactly credible. What would you do if you were facing 10 years jail time? She is also a heart transplant patient and a war widow.

    Pretty much a typical Mary Higgins Clark book. I never quite have them all figured out, and that was true with this one too. It was a fun, easy read, and I love that her books are always clean reads.

    Gregg Aldrich is indicted for the murder of his wife and actress Natalie Rains . Everything points to his guilt, until the prosecuting attorney Emily Wallace digs into the files and realizes her life is in danger. Now everything has changed.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was pretty terrible. I think a big part of that is because I some how ended up with the abridged audiobook so I'm going to bump it up a star because I think it would be better if it wasn't abridged. But the book was so jumpy (again, I'm guessing that's the abridgement) but I also just really didn't like Emily, the main character. I'd also point out that the whole stalker thing is pretty much word for word the same as one of Mary Higgins Clark's other books On the Street Where You Live. I'm This was pretty terrible.

I'm sort of imagining her sitting to write this and thinking "You know what's a good idea, the main character has a stalker and in the end, the stalker has a showdown with the other bad guy." Not realizing that sure that's a good idea, also one she's done before. Poor Mary Higgins Clark. She turns out books so fast she has to reuse major plot points. Finally, the whole organ donation thing was ridiculous. They were pretty clear that Natalie was shot and slowly bleed to death. There's no way her organs were still good to donate.

I know this was necessary for all of the information but for me it felt as though the rest of the events in the book were rushed to prevent the book from being too long. Another thing with this book is that it seemed a bit too much like other ideas by the author: someone is mistakenly accused of a crime and trying to prove their innocence and keep their freedom. It may have been a different storyline but the basic plot notion was pretty much the same. Furthermore, it seemed to be a case of coincidence after coincidence. But, as I said, it works as a good quick read if nothing else.

    Typical Mary Higgins Clark. I had not read her in years, but it was given to me by a friend. It just seemed to have too much in it. I was happy with the original story line of a prosecuter trying the actresses husband for her murder. The courtroom drama was going great, then a serial killer was thrown in as the prosecuter's neighbor. Thas sort of lost me for a minute. On top of that there was mentioned the heart transplant that she had had. You find out that the heart was donated by ... you Typical Mary Higgins Clark.

    I have not read Clark's books in a long time. What would you do if your best friend was murdered? Fast forward 20 years later. The survivor was a great actress and yet, she was murdered. Did the same person commit a crime again? Enter the proscecutor. Did she put the wrong person in jail? This was an ok read; not the best. It piqued my interest in spots; just not enough to keep me up at night to finish it.

    I haven't read anything by this author in years, and I'm so glad I grabbed this off my bookshelf. This book pulled me in from the first few pages. I kept guessing who murdered Natalie, going back and forth between this person and that one. I never figured out "whodunnit " until the author revealed it. I love when that happens!

    I love Mary Higgins Clark. I love the suspense and getting sucked into the story. I think this storyline had a LOT going on, which was entertaining, but I didnt like the pacing quite as much. There were some parts I felt like couldve been more developed where other parts didnt need to have so much time spent on it. Overall though, I enjoyed it. I love Mary Higgins Clark.

    WOW! Just Take My Heart by Mary Higgins Clark is full of suspense and true-to-life characters. Its a murder mystery because although the husband, Greg Aldrich, is on trial for killing his wife, Natalie, he claims he didnt do it. It is a high profile case that is discussed every evening on the show, Courtside which is hosted by Gregs best friend. Emily, the prosecuting attorney, goes after a conviction even though she has some doubt about the defendants guilt. She has a soft spot for him when she WOW!

It’s a murder mystery because although the husband, Greg Aldrich, is on trial for killing his wife, Natalie, he claims he didn’t do it. It is a high profile case that is discussed every evening on the show, “Courtside” which is hosted by Greg’s best friend. Emily, the prosecuting attorney, goes after a conviction even though she has some doubt about the defendant’s guilt.

As if that’s not enough, Emily is in danger herself when a serial killer moves in next door to her and stalks her. Emily’s husband was killed in Iraq and she never remarried so lives alone with her dog, Bess. I found parts even humorous when the serial killer loved to watch the show, “Fugitive Hunt” to see if he was featured. I loved how Emily discovers the truth and the surprise twist at the end. There is so much more I’d like to say, but don’t want to ruin it for you. Most of the book focuses on the trial and is not gory. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense, murder mysteries and thrillers.

    First Mary Higgins Clark book that I have read since I read Where Are the Children? and others back in high school. It was a little predictable in spots, but I liked the 2 story lines and the characters of prosecutor, Emily Wallace and accused agent/husband, Gregg Aldrich. I liked the TV shows in the book. Court Side and the host, Mark, Matt or Mike, who was Gregg Aldrich's friend. And her neighbor likes to watch Fugitive Hunt.

I expected more about the heart transplant after the initial teaser and was a little disappointed. Also, since Natalie Raines was shot and died outside a medical facility, I am surprised that her heart would be fit for a transplant. FYI, Friends, Lovers, Chocolate was all about a heart transplant recipient having side effects from the previous owner.

    Mary Higgins Clark books will always remind me of my grandma. Whenever a new book she writes is released my Gram will purchase it. I love it. Her bookcase downstairs is filled with every single novel, I daresay, Clark has written. Also for as long as I can remember, my Gram is always gracious enough to let my sisters, aunt and I borrow it.

Emily also has a creepy neighbor who is constantly spying on her and actually plotting to kill her. As you can see from this brief blurb there is a lot of story lines. It managed to wrap up nicely but felt slightly contrived especially with the revelation on the last page, something I guessed from (spoiler alert-sort of!) title. It was entertaining, but not one of my favorites of this author. No Favorite Quotes.

    It has been probably 3 years since I have read a Mary Higgins Clark book. There's a reason for that... after listening roughly an hour, I figured out who the killer was. Granted, she did make me question myself about 1/2 hour before the end of the book, but I was right all along. I've read enough of her books that they are somewhat predictable. I was also somewhat disappointed at the end. There was a fair bit of foreshadowing about something and I was right about that too.

However, for the amount of foreshadowing done, that part of the story was pretty anticlimactic. Having said that, I really do like her books, and I got quite absorbed in the story. Having had family members recently go through heart surgery and transplants (different surgeries) some of it was kind of close to home. Her books are good reads, although I do get a little more cautious and a little less trusting after reading them. :)

    This was an EXCELLENT read! Although I guessed a few things that would happen within the story, others kept me guessing to the end. I highly recommend this wonderful MHC read!! I RARELY give "5 stars" but felt this one earned it.

    Kristen

    Part of the allure of MHC's books is that you know exactly what you're getting. She has a formula that she sticks to, but it works. You get 350 or so pages that will rescue the heroine and reveal the Bad Guy. (And frequently, exonerate the wrongly accused). It's an entertaining, satisfying experience. My only complaint about this one is that the Big Surprise at the very end of the book was obvious a mile away and just too cheesy for words.

    The usual book by Clark, this is interesting enough that I finished it but nothing great, and unfortunately so many stupid, implausible things that it can be aggravating. Case in point, the victim is shot at point blank range by, it turns out, someone who would know how to do it correctly, but she doesnt die for more than five hours. Dumb, but Ive read Clark before, so not surprising. After reading a serious book her novels are filler, light, mildly entertaining, and forgettable.

    Actress Natalie Raines flees to her Cape Cod vacation home to think and to escape the fear that whoever killed her friend Jamie years ago has just reappeared in her life. Someone whose picture she has seen, but which was missing from Jamies wallet when the body was found all those years ago.

Returning to her New Jersey home, Natalie is accosted and shot Actress Natalie Raines flees to her Cape Cod vacation home – to think and to escape the fear that whoever killed her friend Jamie years ago has just reappeared in her life. Someone whose picture she has seen, but which was missing from Jamie’s wallet when the body was found all those years ago. Estranged spouse Gregg Aldrich has been persistent in his efforts to persuade Natalie to reconcile. Almost to the point that he is “stalking” her. Returning to her New Jersey home, Natalie is accosted and shot as she is entering her kitchen. More than two years later, Gregg Aldrich is charged with her murder, after a career criminal, Jimmy Easton, confesses that he met with Aldrich on the Friday before she was killed, to accept a deposit on a contract to kill her. Which he then says that he backed out of…His confession and testimony earn him a lighter sentence in another crime, but are enough to convict Mr. Aldrich, because of certain details he knows about the Aldrich home. Emily Wallace, an ambitious prosecutor, who has a lot to prove – not the least of which is the ongoing possibility that others will see her as fragile because of a heart transplant she received two years before – is eager to take on the case. But something about Easton’s testimony tugs at Emily…and the investigating officer, who is incidentally a cousin of the Chief Prosecutor, seems disturbingly anxious to keep certain facts hidden. Careening ahead to the final pages, the reader follows the author’s trail of unanswered questions that plague Emily and certain others, and the intrigue leads to surprising conclusions. A reveal on the final pages is not totally unexpected, but satisfying nonetheless, as it ties up some loose ends. Always a fan of this author, I found “Just Take My Heart” to be a compelling and exciting read.

    I've been reading Clark's books for 15 years now, since age 11, and I have to say I have finally managed to completely guess the outcome of one of her books. That doesn't mean I didn't utterly love it, though. It was a different form, more or less, from other of her novels, but enjoyable nonetheless. Figuring it out may have just been a matter of becoming better at spotting Clark's hints, but I generally don't try to expend much effort in guessing anyway - a book loses its entertainment value if I've been reading Clark's books for 15 years now, since age 11, and I have to say I have finally managed to completely guess the outcome of one of her books.

The heart, however, was perfectly obvious, lifted right out of such plots as Return to Me (David Duchovny and Minnie Driver, for those who don't remember the film). The only complaint I'd say I have about this book is the utter implausibility of the heart transplant - I'm no medical buff, but I'm pretty sure that a person who was shot (while not actually in the heart) and slowly bled to death over the span of five hours, who would have been officially dead for at least a good while before physicians could have contacted next of kin for permission to transplant, would be utterly ruled out as a donor of major organs - especially the heart. But that's just my opinion.

The one "BIG REVIEL" that I think was supposed to shock me was ruined by a badly written blurb on the back of the book on cd (though nothing will beat the blurb on the back of the copy of The Scarlet Pimpernel I read when I picked it up for the first time in my teens. . . . Yes it told me who the Scarlet Pimpernel was). Anyway, I will keep picking up Mary Higgins Clark when I'm in the mood to listen to a fun interesting book on CD, but I will take her in moderation.
