    One thought on “As Time Goes By”

    1. Where is the woman who wrote classics such as Where are the Children and You Belong to Me This book lacks any suspense at all and is about as dull as watching paint dry I wonder if the creation of the absolutely useless Alvirah and Willy have sapped all of MHC s creative juices, leaving her with nothing interesting to write about Betsy Grant, widow of Doctor Ted Grant, is on trial for her husband s murder At stake are fifteen million dollars, which would be shared equally between Betsy and Alan [...]

    2. I have only read a few of this author s books so far but I think this may be lighter than her usual fare because it was virtually suspense free and she is described as the queen of suspense It was however an interesting mystery with happy endings for all concerned well except the bad guys of course and no need for stress at any point Maybe a little too much time spent in the court room, but that is just personal preference I know many people love a good court room drama, just not me The plot was [...]

    3. I thoroughly enjoyed this book Interesting twists and turns that make it so intriguing to listen to Newscaster Delaney Wright is reporting on the trial of Betsy Grant, a wealthy woman accused of murdering her Alzheimer s afflicted husband, Ted Although there are several others who seem likely to have done the deed, the courtroom testimony does not seem to bear out Betsy s claim of innocence and a conviction seems likely As the trial plays out in the courtroom and on the nightly news, Delaney fi [...]

    4. Mary Higgins Clark has been a favorite of mine since I was about 11 While they have become somewhat predictable, they are a quick, light read that is always enjoyable I don t think this one is as good as some of her earlier booksbut then again, I m sure my age factors in somewhat.

    5. Mary Higgins Clark is one of my favorite authors I treasure her suspense novels and keep a complete set on hand to reread on occasion The older ones are my favorites, but I enjoy all of them There is just a certain class and storytelling to her books that is like sliding on a cozy, favored sweater and wrapping cold fingers around a mug of steaming tea Extra points when the weather is foul or spooky windy and so was the case with my first reading of this book As Time Goes By is classic Mary Higgi [...]

    6. I was expecting some sappy love story, so I m glad this compelling thriller turned out to be anything but The mystery was pretty simple to figure out but the real depth here is in the powerful friendships the characters share with each other.

    7. As Time Goes By by Mary Higgins Clark is a 2016 Simon Schuster publication Mary Higgins Clark Wow What can you say She is eighty eight years old and still writing quality stories I will admit,though, the Alvirah and Willy series is hit or miss with me, and I don t actively seek them out I didn t realize this book was a part of that series when I checked it out, but I m glad I did Besty s beloved husband, Ted, has been murdered and she is facing prosecution for the crime Her chances aren t good a [...]

    8. For the most part, Mary Higgins Clark has a formula The heroine is always white, wealthy or about to inherit a million dollar fortune should the crime is solved , living in New York or a neighboring city , she and her acquaintances love to drink coffee, and she s beautiful even if so is not explicitly stated Maybe it s because I know this formula too well that I could foresee literally within minutes who was who and who did what, thus I did not enjoy this novel as much as her previous ones Some [...]

    9. As Time Goes By has got to be one of the most obvious books ever written There was nothing that couldn t be figured out by the middle of the book, and that s being generous It was so obvious who Delaney s biological mother was I kept trying to make myself believe it was someone else just so I wouldn t have figured out a major detail within the first few chapters, which were about two pages long in some cases.The only reason I questioned my suspicion was because I thought Delaney was at least 30 [...]

    10. I have always enjoyed MHC novels but this one was dull and lacking in some ways It was definitely NOT a page turner I kept dozing off.The storyline was predictable I had it figured out long before the end The characters didn t sound very enthusiastic and all used very flat and dull language This was especially true in the court scenes At times I thought people don t really speak like this, do they Also, there was repetition which seemed like filler I didn t care how Betsy wore her hair, clothes [...]

    11. This was a typical Mary Higgins Clark Novel It was a pretty quick and easy read The plot was interesting, but very predictable Still, I enjoyed reading it.

    12. 3.5 starsInkvotaryNo doubt, a nice to read crime novel with some wonderful scenes But the author knows it better A lot better And the key scene, in which the real bad person was unveiled, was a bit too much of everything I liked the main figure, though And Betsy Grant was a wonderful figure, too So if you are a huge Mary Higgins Clark fan, you might get a bit disappointed But if you don t expect much and like a nice and solid crime novel, I guess you will like it I kind of enjoyed it, yes, but a [...]

    13. 3.5 starsThis writing here is not like the MHC Suspense Queen of the 80s, but a nice relaxing mystery Good, if just a bit repetitive I liked the characters and the side story of adoption The recurring characters of Alvirah Willy appear here, but are not overbearing Easy Fast reading Recommended for MHC fans and those who enjoy lighter mysteries.

    14. 2.5 Un MHC, a passe toujours bien lorsqu on a le moral en bas comme moi en ce moment Toutefois, celui ci n est de loin pas son meilleur puisque l affaire est entendue depuis le d but Dommage.

    15. I ve never read anything by Mary Higgins Clark, but I need to believe that her earlier works are great This book, however, is the worst place to start I realise it is already 10 in the Alvirah and Willy series, and that it is always difficult to introduce the characters to new readers without boring those who ve read previous instalments, but the following is not the way to do it He had given her a sunburst pin with a microphone in it to record her conversations The editor said that would help h [...]

    16. I initially gave this a five star rating as soon as I finished the book liked reading this story It was short and entertaining However, It did not contain the kind of suspense and mystery I am used to in a Mary Higgins Clark novel The two main characters are Delaney, a reporter who is covering a murder trial and also has a desperate need to find her birth mother Betsy Grant is accused of murdering her husband, Ted Grant Ted was suffering from early onset Alzheimer s disease I liked Clark s prese [...]

    17. Mary Higgins Clark is not called the Queen of Suspense for nothing Forty one years ago she wrote Where Are The Children and I read it while a senior in high school I haven t miss a book of hers since I own all her mysteries I just have to get her latest on release day I can t miss a Mary Higgins Clark book The thing I love about her books most, well, two things she never uses profanity or vulgarity That s proof you can tell a good story without those two elements She consistently is a New York T [...]

    18. 2,5 estrellas.Tengo sentimientos encontrados con este libro, porque a pesar de que es un libro con un ritmo gil, estilo directo y sencillo y de lectura entretenida, hay cosas que no me cuadran La autora mete con calzador un mont n de historias que en principio no tiene nada que ver Es demasiado previsible Desde el principio ves lo que va a pasar Y no entiendo que para explicar una historia que, a priori, tiene una buena trama, tenga que dar tanta vuelta y meter a un mont n de personajes con hist [...]

    19. Is feel good murder mystery a book category If it is, I nominate this one for inclusion It s a relatively quick read, with a stress free and for the most part predictable plot It s also easy to put down when need be perfect for on the beach when you need to keep one eye on the munchkins or an unexpectedly long wait in the doctor s office.Delaney Wright is a TV journalist covering the high profile murder trial of Betsy Grant, who s accused of killing her wealthy doctor husband who, coincidentally [...]

    20. Es un 3,5.Libro t pico del estilo de la HIggins, van saliendo un mont n de personajes que no sabes que relaci n pueden tener con el caso pero que al final todos van encajando en su lugar Libro que se desarrolla durante un juicio por asesinato, no te aburre para nada, aunque podr a hacerlo No le he dado m s de un 3,5 porque esta vez me fui oliendo la trama, cosa que no suele pasarme con sus libros.De todas formas lo recomiendo si te gustan los de tema polic aco por la forma en que te engancha y l [...]

    21. I ve loved many of Mary Higgins Clark s books, and this was an interesting read I could have done without some of the courtroom questioning that was extremely redundant Ha I guess it was pretty true to life though.

    22. As always, MHC keeps my interest It just felt like a recycled version of some of her other books Some of it was predictable and some of it was contrived.

    23. News broadcaster, Delaney Wright, has been assigned to cover a murder trial that is garnering headlines and capturing the attention of thousands Betsy Grant is accused of killing her husband, a doctor who suffered from the onset of early Alzheimer s Outside the courtroom, Delaney is searching for her birth mother She d enlisted the help of her friend, Alvirah Meehan, and her husband, Willy.In her latest mystery thriller, As Time Goes By, Mary Higgins Clark has brought back her beloved husband an [...]

    24. See reviews on my blog, rhiareads.For a book I only bought because I d run out of things to read on holiday and this was the only book that sounded good and wasn t in French in the airport, this turned out to be quite good I ve never read anything by Mary Higgins Clark before, so I wasn t sure what to expect I also wasn t aware this was part of a series, let alone the tenth in a series This isn t the strongest thriller I ve ever read, but I enjoyed it nonetheless It s a slow burn, multiple POV [...]

    25. Clark writes well enough that I find her mysteries engaging and I want to see how she unravels things However, there is no depth to her writing Her characters are very flat and she spends way too much time describing what people are wearing The emotions often feel empty One of the characters considered suicide at one point and it read like, Oh, maybe I should take some pills Okay I ll go to sleep instead I never felt any of the anxiety or tension of a potential new killing no ticking clock.Oh go [...]

    26. I enjoyed this mystery murder story view spoiler This was a very dialogue driven story, where all the different clues were discovered mainly within the court case questioning This in itself made it gripping and I just wanted to keep progressing through the court case to uncover the murderer It was interesting how the two stories the murder and the adoption all came together with the court case I felt sorry for Bettsy and am glad her son was uncovered for killing his Dad for his money This was my [...]
