New York’s trendy magazines are a source of peril when a killer enacts a bizarre dance of death, using the personal ads to lure his victims…

After college, best friends Erin Kelley and Darcy Scott move to the city to pursue exciting careers; Erin is a promising jewelry designer, Darcy finds success as a decorator. On a lark, Darcy persuades Erin to help their TV producer friend research the kinds of people who place personal ads. It seems like innocent fun…until Erin disappears.

Erin’s body is found on an abandoned Manhattan pier — on one foot is her own shoe, on the other, a high-heeled dancing slipper. Soon after, startling communiques from the killer reveal that Erin is not the first victim of this “dancing shoe murderer.” And, if the killer has his way, she won’t be his last. Next on his death list is Darcy.

Loves Music Loves to Dance is another suspense/thriller book from America’s Queen of Suspense, Mary Higgins Clark. I considered it as my unforgettable book because of 2 reasons. First, because it’s the very first novel from the author and second English book that I’ve read. And lastly, I considered the plot of the story very morbid.

If you are asking me why? Then imagine dancing with a dead body being preserved in your freezer. Very gross right? Or maybe crazy. That was also the reason why I was glued to the story. One factor also is that the author used simple English words that is very easy to understand. So I said bye-bye to my Meriam Dictionay App.

This is a very interesting story. You will feel the suspense as early as the first chapter of this book. It also gave me the feeling that skipping a single line of the story is a mortal sin. One thing I adore about the author is how she will confuse you. How she turns you to pick the wrong person as the suspect. She’s very clever.

Highly recommended to everyone whom like me, enjoys suspense. This author will keep you guessing. Suspense, thriller, mystery, humor and romance put in one book. Clark indeed is the America’s Queen of Suspense!
