    1. You Belong to Me was my first Mary Higgins Clark. She's such a popular and prolific author, I had put off reading her books. I was afraid I wouldn't like them, but what I should have been afraid of was enjoying them. You Belong to Me was an exciting, suspenseful read that made me regret not reading Clark's books earlier.Susan is a former assistant district attorney turned psychologist and radio host. When she inquires on-air about a missing woman she sets off a murderous chain reaction she never [...]

    2. (por-detras-das-palavrassp)Agora és minha é o segundo livro que leio de Mary Higgins Clark (o primeiro que li foi em co-autoria) e estava com algumas expetativas para a leitura. Estas minhas expetativas advinham das boas recomendações acerca da autora que a minha parceira Denise, do blog Quando se abre um livro, me ia fazendo chegar. Em geral foi uma leitura lenta, mais pela minha falta de tempo do que pelo desenvolvimento da narrativa. A autora, muito facilmente, consegue criar dinâmica en [...]

    3. No es de lo mejor de la autora. Estaba bastante cantado desde el principio quién era el malo de la película o mejor dicho, del libro.Por otro lado, menuda hermana se gasta la protagonista!! Con hermanas así quién necesita enemigos Lo que le hizo ya me parece bastante increíble -hay hermanos que dejen de hablarse por menos- y encima está dispuesta a volverlo a hacer. Dee necesita un psicológo. Otro que no sea su propia hermana.Un libro con el que pasar el rato. Como siempre, el particular [...]

    4. Mary Higgins Clark may not write the most imaginative of thrillers but she's an accomplished writer in her own right and she never fails to deliver a page-turner that's full of suspense. She's like that dependable friend: she can always be relied on to produce a mystery thriller that is easily digestible and pleasant to read. You Belong to Me doesn't disappoint and is an entertaining read despite its formulaic structure and predictability. While I had picked the killer quite early on, she kept m [...]

    5. Once again, Mrs. Clark enchanted me with the beauty of New York and most importantly, the real-life of psychologist (or shrink as we love to call them). Dr. Susan in this book is definitely a strong woman but lack of control in her life. She lost a love partner to her sister, she lost her father to a whinny stepmother and she was having a love-hate relationship with her dear sister, Dee.When Dr Susan was exposed to mysterious disappearing of one Regina Clausen during one of her radio show, she w [...]

    6. Not good. Not good at all.I am so disappointed to be writing this review! MHC is one of the only mystery authors I will give any sort of attention to and typically when I pick up one of her books I’ll have it read in 3 days max. Up to this point, her success rate in the world of me has been 100%. Without really having to say anything else, I’ll tell you that this book took me 3 weeks, 3 WEEKS, to read. She definitely has a formula with her books: Grim Incident at the Beginning + Interesting [...]

    7. I haven't yet finished it all the way. It is a really great book though, it starts off kind of boring and slow, but when you get maybe 8 or 9 chapters into it, the book gets really good. I have stayed up really late a couple of nights because I haven't been able to close the book. It is a good keep you at the edge of your seat kind of book. Yes, at times it is a little boring, but most of the time it is quite a good read. I definitely suggest it for good, mystery book lovers. I really like what [...]

    8. A predictable story with cheap attempts to throw the reader off from guessing who the real killer is, not to mention the lack of an explanation for the motives of the killer.

    9. Another great book by Mary Higgins Clark. I like them because they keep me guessing till the end. And each one is so different - she doesn't write by a formula. This one is about a psychologist who has a radio show and invites an author on who wrote a book about woman vanishing. The broadcast opens a can of worms that nearly kills Dr Susan and had me guessing who dunit till the end!And she doesn't use bad language to "spice" up the story it works very well without!!!!!!

    10. Kind of predictable, but I did enjoy the book. I loved her writing throughout the book, and it was easy to read.

    11. A re-read because I finally found it in audiobook (thank you, inter-library loan!) and since I am on a Clark re-read tear. It's not that great, unfortunately, because it's my favorite title of all MHC's books because it's one of my favorite songs. Unfortunately, the characters act like idiots, the one love interest is painted so thoroughly as a villain I laughed, and I hate that we never found out what happens to the woman in the coma. Overall, it's just not Clark's best effort.

    12. I'm not much for mysteries. They aren't bad, I like them, I just don't read them much. This book made me re-think my feelings towards the genre. Clark is a pretty famous mystery writer. A lot of people like her books and I know she has written many but if you are ever going to try out one of her books, don't make this one your first.There isn't much about this book that I liked so I am just gonna start with what I didn't like.-Clark talks a lot about time in her book. Many times throughout the b [...]

    13. I've read several MHC books and generally enjoyed them, but this one was pretty meh, because of the ending. The story starts off well and left me guessing as to who the serial killer was, but when it was finally revealed, it was done in such a rushed way, with a poor motive for the bad guy, so not one of MHC's better books.

    14. 3.5 StarsYou Belong To Me is a nice, fast read for avid mystery readers stuck in the house on a rainy day. Higgins Clark uses short chapters and a boat load of characters to advance the story which is fitting since a serial killer is preying upon lonely women on cruise liners.Psychologist Dr. Susan Chandler has a successful call in radio show as well a private practice. She still has the instinct of a District Attorney and will need it as she explores the disappearance of Regina Clausen. Clausen [...]

    15. A young radio journalist, Susan Chandler, decides to do a new series on her show about women who just vanish without trace. With the help of a book written by psychiatrist Donald Richards (whos own wife disappeared) she begins her new series with a piece on the unsolved disappearance of Regina Clausen who vanished into thin air whilste on a round-the-world cruise three years ago. When Susan started the show, what she didn't bargain for was a mysterious call from a frightened lady calling herself [...]

    16. Oh good gosh! I LOVE this book! I will go back and read it again and again. I have probably read it 5 or 6 times in the last 16 years (I first read it when I was 12ish). Thanks to this book the song "You Belong to Me" will NEVER be a romantic song, EVER! When it played during Shrek I started giggling and when my friends asked why I said "He is going to kill her and bury her in one of those places." No one got it. *Sigh* The burden of being me I guess. The book is very interesting and gives you j [...]

    17. This novel, along with most of the Mary Higgins Clark novels that I have read, was an enjoyable mystery. I am always a sucker for novels that jump between characters perspectives and really enjoyed how we got not only into all the main characters heads, but the killers head as well. I see why they call these suspense novels because when you know someone is about to die or holds a key to the mystery and then read how they aren't going to do the one thing that will save their life, it drives you u [...]

    18. Picking up this book, I had high hopes since Mary Higgins Clark is a name I've heard and seen oftentimes in bookstores. I was thrilled at the mystery that boggled the characters in this story and I loved the psychological aspect of it but there were a few things that threw me off a bit.First of all, I found the first half of the story to be a bit of a bore. I loved the plot line and such but there was so much happening and hardly enough scenes with the main characters taking place. I think Don R [...]

    19. If you missed the TV movie version from a decade ago, you can relive the suspense in this classic mystery in print version. In Mary Higgins Clark's You Belong to Me, she took us on an adventure from radio to the cruise ships. Dr. Susan Chandler decided to use her radio talk show to explore the topic of disappearing women and the killers who prey on their vulnerable loneliness, she had no idea she exposed herself and others to the invisible dangers out there. When a caller called in about the dis [...]

    20. Susan is a clinical psychologist who also hosts a radio talk program. The subject of her latest program involves the unsolved murder of a woman. When clues are phoned in, they set off a series of murders, and Susan eventually finds herself targeted by the killer.The beginning is simple, but it's not long before the story grows increasingly complex. Clark, though, adeptly keeps the characters straight for us while giving them each a unique personality. We get enough background so we have an idea [...]

    21. I should remember not to read MHC back to back; it only leads to disappointment with her repetitive formulas. Particularly in You Belong to Me I had the killer picked out way in advance - not because the clues were there, but because he was the only one who *hadn't* been pointed at, which is pretty typical. I'm also getting a bit fed up with "strong" female protagonists (always lawyers, journalists, etc.) who, in spite of their insistence that they can "take care of themselves," somehow *always* [...]

    22. Another spine-tingly scary murder mystery by Mary Higgins Clark. Her writing compels readers to keep turning pages. By the time you have finished the book you will understand all the clues she laid out, but until you reach that "Aha!" moment you will begin to suspect more than one villain afoot.Here is my NON-SPOILING summary:Dr. Susan Chandler is a clinical psychologist who also hosts a radio call-in show. While interviewing a psychiatrist about his book on missing women, Susan relates the acco [...]

    23. What an utter waste of a decent plot!! The book was riddled with intentionally misleading side stories and a cheap attempt to throw the reader off from guessing who the killer is, which by itself made the end obvious. A classy author like Mary Higgins Clark, did not have to resort to this. My other complaint about this book is the lack of tightness of plot. In trying to offer every person's perspective in this book, it seems like the author instead tried to offer the reader every character's eve [...]

    24. This book is really addictive, Mary Higgins Clark takes us once again in an exciting thriller until the end, she takes us on different tracks that would suggest that this or that character is the killer (I first thought the counselor Jane Clausen, Douglas Layton then to Dr. Richards). While it is only in the last pages that we discover the real identity of the killer, I do not doubt at all that it could be Alex.

    25. Very good book for my first book that I've read of Higgens Clark since the last time I read one of her books when I was in high school! I have so many more of her newer books and I can't wait to read more of one of mt favorite authors in high school! 4 stars!

    26. I read this author sometimes because I have a friend who really loves her, and she gives me the books. The stories are a tad simplistic for my tastes, but Clark writes well, and the mysteries are fun.

    27. You Belong to Me by Mary Higgins Clark centers around a tlk show psychiatrist's brush with a killer of women on cruise ships. I enjoyed this because the clues were never clear and it was fu to work alongside the main character to find the murderer.

    28. I really like Mary Higgins Clark she is such a good author when you want a good suspence book to read. This is one of those books. It is just a good suspence book with a good twist at the end.
