This is the book that started my love for Sidney Sheldon. I first read it about 10 years ago and make it a point to re-read it whenever I'm bored with other books. This book is great!! The minute you begin reading it you become absorbed in the main character's life. Tracy is a wonderfully strong, brilliant, sexy, and determined leading lady. You'll find yourself cheering for her through all the exciting adventures she gets herself into. It's a story of love, vengence, retribution, and self-discovery. A MUST READ for anyone who loves a good book!

This the first book by Sidney Sheldon that I have read and I will certainly be reading more. If Tomorrow Comes tells the tale of a woman scorned. Wrongfully sent to jail and left by her fiance.. Tracy decides to get even on her release. One by one she goes after the people who have wronged her. No longer the victim she comes to enjoy the thrill of the scam and goes off on an amazing life of crime. This story is an adventure so go along for the ride.

This is my most favourite novel of Sidney Sheldon.Tracy Whitney , by far is Sheldon's most brave heroine of all his novels, who fights all suicidal situations of life.The reader's travel through tracy's situations is exciting and keeps the readers on the edge. The transformation of an ordinary working women into most intelligent and cunning burglar is quite interesting.And no one will ever forget Tracy Whitney after closing the book. A must for all Sheldon fans..!!!

Tracy Whitney, the heroine of this novel, is like all of Sidney Sheldon's leading ladies: She's young, beautiful, bright, and driven. Oh, she's also a professional criminal. The story opens as Tracy is wrongly convicted of attempted murder (well, OK; she DID shoot him!) and begins serving a harrowing prison term. After her surprising release, she plots revenge on all the people who have hurt her. This was my favorite part of the book. Tracy then becomes involved with a con-man and ends up as a world-famous thief, stealing treasures in the capitals of Europe. She also finds love with another thief, but can she trust him?

If you can overlook Tracy's criminal life and the joy she takes in it, you'll love this book. It describes in minute detail how she manages to steal from the most securely-guarded museums, stores, and homes in Europe. There is humor, too, as Tracy and her pal Jeff merrily bounce from caper to caper, outsmarting the authorities and narrowly escaping capture. Another great Sidney Sheldon page-turner!

This was my first experience with Sidney Sheldon, and I very much enjoyed it. I am the kind of person who doesn't like the beginnings of books to be so drawn out, and in this book, it cut right to the chase. While I was reading it, I found myself thinking about the book as being a bunch of stories that all linked up, because the woman in this book had many different adventures, we could say.

Beautiful but somewhat naive Tracy Whitney is set up for attempted murder and is given a 15 year sentence in an escape-proof penitentiary. Tracy soon shows her personal strengths against powerful and dangerous prisoners determined to take her over.

After a miraculous pardon Tracy is no longer naive and sets out to destroy the influential and powerful people who put her in jail. Using her beauty and native cunning, by the middle of the book she quickly achieves her objectives. Then she is faced with the rest of her life being tarnished by her prison record, until she makes contact with someone highly recommended by her best friend and mentor from her prison cell.

Tracy then starts her second career as a jewel thief, mixing with the cream of society and only stealing from those that can afford the loss. She soon confronts Jeff Stevens, an irresistible rogue and con artist, who frequently beats her in taking from the same targets. There are shades of "To Catch a Thief" in the plot.

This is classic Sidney Sheldon with fast moving page-turning action and a strong-willed heroine. Sheldon is quoted as saying "I try to construct them so when the reader gets to the end of it, he or she has to read just one more chapter. It's the technique of the old Saturday afternoon serial: leave the guy hanging on the edge of the cliff at the end of the chapter."

The book is over 30 years old but the storyline and writing are not dated. Highly recommended for someone who likes books about strong willed females facing impossible odds.

You just want to find out what happens next. The description leaps off the page and suddenly you find yourself propelled into the world of Tracey Whitney, a world of near escapes, perfect timing, intrigue, passion, and last but not least, the hope for tomorrow. A brilliant creation and work of fiction. A plot that really stands out amongst the rest.

I've been getting into mysteries of late (mainly Scandinavian authors like Mankell and Nesbo, plus lots of Rendell) so I decided to check out the well-known Sidney Sheldon. I had no idea he is the Danielle Steele of mysteries.

The protagonist, Tracy Whitney, starts off so mind-numbingly stupid that it goes beyond the limits of plausibility when she later becomes a mastermind. Then again, it's not so much that she's intelligent, but that her adversaries are complete idiots. Early on, for instance, when she breaks into a house and trips the alarm, she simply tells the cops that she's a guest at the house -- and they believe her. We are meant to take this incident as a mark of her ingenuity. When "she fights back to destroy the untouchable crime lords who put her there," as it says in the book's description, you wonder how they ever rose to power, as she disposes of them with the kind of ease you'd expect from an episode of a 1980s television show. Perhaps I should say DAYTIME television show, because many of the details -- from the characters' names to their sudden mastery of French accents -- come off as soapy. The book is simply ridiculous.

The whole time I was reading it, I kept exclaiming out loud to my bf that "this is like reading 'Hart to Hart'!" Just before posting this review, I looked up the show online -- and guess what? Turns out, it was created by Sidney Sheldon! Why am I even surprised?
