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, 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 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 was surprised how at the end of the story everything changed and the real culprit was now being obvious.

Clark never fails to amaze her fans. Suspense at its best. This is really a good read that will keep you guessing. Can’t wait to read another book from hers.

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 a good suspense thrillers, then this is the right one for you.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
