5. Mary Higgins Clark’s Books

Mary Higgins Clarks Books
For YEARS & YEARS Cindy has loved Mary Higgins Clarks Novels. She has a big collection of them and has basically read them all! This fictional author has been writing for years and years and has written over 33 books! Try out one and let us know what you think!

Here is a short synopsis on Mary:

My first book was about George Washington. It was published in 1969 and disappeared without a trace. Three years ago Simon and Schuster co-published it with the Mount Vernon Historical Society and retitled ‘Mount Vernon Love Story’, it became a bestseller.

My first suspense novel ‘Where Are the Children’ was bought in 1974 for three thousand dollars by Simon and Schuster. Thirty-three books later, I’m still with S&S.

….

I’m always asked to name my favorite book. They’re ALL my favorites. If there is one book that is very special to me, it is my memoir ‘Kitchen Privileges’ because writing it made me relive my early life including those first struggles to become a writer. I think ‘Kitchen Privileges’ is both tender and funny and it’s me.

I hope you’re able to enjoy some of Cindy’s Favorites! Let us know if you pick one up!
