When Glady and Lane are hired to decorate a townhouse condo for Anne Bennett, the wife and possible widow of Parker Bennett, a financier who has swindled many middle-income and older people out of their life's savings, Lane feels sympathy for the frail woman; Anne's son Eric, who is suspected by the SEC of being involved in his father's plot, is very interested in Lane. He swears to her that he is innocent and wants to clear his name. She believes him and her daughter Katie takes to him as well, which makes her even more sure he's innocent.
Ranger, one of the elderly victims of Parker Bennett, has just lost his wife Judy after her second stroke. He is consumed with rage that he was unable to provide the care his wife needed and the beautiful retirement they had both desired.Read more ›
I was amused, though, by this: she has Lane describing the gift of an engraved Mont Blanc pen as "not too expensive, but thoughtful, caring, well-chosen." According to their website, those things start around $460!!! That's not a "little gift" except in size. Well, maybe in HER world it's a "little gift." In MY world, that would pay for my health insurance, doctor co-pays, and prescriptions for a month. I now remember why I gave up reading her when I used to be obsessed with getting her next book. She just doesn't deliver anymore.
This book didn't disappoint. I just love reading her books. I love that there are always so many great characters, and that she jumps from one to the other. It keeps me on my toes. This book (in my opinion) had kind of a "Devil Wears Prada" kind of feel. hehe.
Glady is a mean, shrewd woman that is also an amazing interior designer. People pay lots of money to get her to decorate their house. Lane, her assistant, is a nice sweet girl who is working hard for Glady, but also has made some of her own demands to keep Glady in line. She has to be done with work at 5:00 every day to be home with her daughter, or she would have to quit. I love Lane. She is a kind, savvy business woman herself. She has learned from the best.
Glady decides to do a home remodel from an old friend probono. The client was The wife of Parker Bennett, who has been missing for two years. He went missing after ripping a whole bunch of people off in the financial world. He was a bad man. I didn't like him from the moment his name was mentioned.
While Glady takes the job she makes Lane do all the work. In so doing she gets to know the clients son Mark Bennett. She is drawn to him, and his charm. Her daughter even seems to like Mark. What she doesn't know is that, the Bennetts have a dark past, and the closer she gets to Mark the more danger her life is in.Read more ›

This book is very good, as is usual with Mary Higgins Clark. She is an excellent writer, always keeping you interested and excited.Published 10 hours ago by M.E. Lawton
Mary Higgins Clark obviously has a talent for gripping the reader. But this story line is so improbably ludicrous. Read morePublished 1 day ago by An Ominous
