Mom-Me Time with Mary Higgins Clark

“On the Street Where You Live” is the title of Mary Higgins Clark’s novel that I have just read. It is about Emily, a young woman that is haunted by two murders that are closely linked. In seeking to find the link between the murder in her family a hundred and ten years ago and the recent murder, Emily becomes threat to the killer who has chosen her as the next victim.

Book

Good read but it didn’t fascinate me much because I was able to read a novel with almost the same plot as this one…”copycat killer”. But I am glad though that I found the time to finish it last weekend. I seldom find time for myself so reading this novel was one of those precious times I cherish. Once again, it was a great Mom-Me time.
