As Time Goes By | Mary Higgins Clark
18 posts | 23 read | 7 to read
In this exciting thriller from Mary Higgins Clark, the #1 New York Times bestselling Queen of Suspense, a news reporter tries to find her birth mother just as she is assigned to cover the high-profile trial of a woman accused of murdering her wealthy husband. Television journalist Delaney Wright is on the brink of stardom after she begins covering a sensational murder trial for the six p.m. news. She should be thrilled, yet her growing desire to locate her birth mother consumes her thoughts. When Delaneys friends Alvirah Meehan and her husband Willy offer to look into the mystery surrounding her birth, they uncover a shocking secret they do not want to reveal. On trial for murder is Betsy Grant, widow of a wealthy doctor who has been an Alzheimers victim for eight years. When her once-upon-a-time celebrity lawyer urges her to accept a plea bargain, Betsy refuses: she will go to trial to prove her innocence. Betsys stepson, Alan Grant, bides his time nervously as the trial begins. His substantial inheritance hangs in the balancehis only means of making good on payments he owes his ex-wife, his children, and increasingly angry creditors. As the trial unfolds, and the damning evidence against Betsy piles up, Delaney is convinced that Betsy is not guilty and frantically tries to prove her innocence. A true classic from Mary Higgins Clark, As Time Goes By is a thrilling read by a master of the genre.

A news reporter is looking for her birth parents while she is covering the story of a woman on trial for murdering her husband. The story line was very predictable with little suspense. #MountTBR

GoldenGirl I used to love Mary Higgins Clark, but the older I got the more I realized ALL her books were pretty predictable 🤷‍♀️ 1mo
NatalieR @GoldenGirl True. I mostly read them in honor of my grandma who loved MHC and gave me my love for reading. ❤️ 1mo

Another enjoyable audiobook by #MaryHigginsClark ♥️ If I‘m looking for a mystery and I don‘t have something specific in mind, I‘ll always be happy to pick up anything by this author.

2.5/5 ⭐️⭐️

Okay, I am the WORST at guessing the endings of mysteries, and even I predicted what would happen in this one. I finished it anyway, because I didn‘t believe it could be so obvious. Alas, it was... 🤨

Got over 4 hours in a car today, driving to see family, so started listening to As Time Goes By by Mary Higgins Clark.

Ms_T That‘s a long drive. Safe journey. 2y
Karkar @Andrew65 is Mary H. C. A cozy mystery writer? 2y
Andrew65 @Ms_T Thanks, most of my relatives are far away so often takes some driving. 2y
Andrew65 @Karkar I don't know as if I'd describe it as Cozy mysteries, but are definitely lighter mysteries or faster moving than the more gritty mystery and Suspense fiction. Always good reads and leaves me trying to work out what is going on and who has done it. 2y

Vacation changes when you take a 3 year old. Snuck in a little reading time (like 20 pages) and enjoyed every bit of the sun and sand and splashing in the water.

Her books have become predictable, but I still enjoy reading them!

ReadingOver50 There is something comforting in predictably 😊 3y
Librarylady I would agree. I still enjoy her books even though they are predictable. 3y

Reading with the pup this sunny morning. Mary Higgins Clark is always a comfort read for me. I've been reading her books since middle school!

Chessa I think I only read one MHC, as a book we could read on a list for 9th grade English. I remembered really liking it and thinking that I had somehow gotten one over on the teacher by reading something I actually liked (not often the case in English class for me, alas). 3y
Bookworm83 @Chessa Haha!! I teach middle schoolers and we read a lot of classics. I love it when they try to pretend they don't like what we're reading when really I can tell they are into it. 3y

A nice gelato after a main course of murder. Sometimes you just need a palate cleanser after an intense novel

Good book but pretty easy to figure out the mystery.
