imagined Only Mary Higgins Clark can so seamlessly meld spellbinding suspense, wit, and romance My Gal Sunday is entertainment of the highest order Mary Higgins Clark was inspired by the 1940s radio drama, Our Gal Sunday, about a country girl who marries a British aristocrat In her version, it s an American aristocrat The young and popular former President of the United States, who is married to a newly elected congresswoman from a blue collar background in Jersey City And of course, this couple who has everything solves crimes together.The whole thing is very rich And very white Almost to the point of ridiculousness.The book is a coll Mary Higgins Clark was inspired by the 1940s radio drama, Our Gal Sunday, about a country girl who marries a British aristocrat In her version, it s an American aristocrat The young and popular former President of the United States, who is married to a newly elected congresswoman from a blue collar background in Jersey City And of course, this couple who has everything solves crimes together.The whole thing is very rich And very white Almost to the point of ridiculousness.The book is a collection of four short stories.The first is a straight up cozy mystery, with an old friend famed for murder It s fairly engaging, but the short length doesn t really give it the space it needs to develop false trails and red herrings, and the whodunnit turns out to be pretty much whoyouexpecteddunnit.The second story is a kidnapping thriller with Sunday abducted by what appears to be an international terrorist organization Standard damsel in distress fare, with a villain whose actions don t really make any sense, and you re I guess supposed to chalk all of that up to well, he s crazy.I liked the third story, which involved a very cold case and some international political drama involving a fictional Latin American country It did rely a bit on male protagonist Henry Parker Britland IV being something of a child prodigy in the past because of course he was , but the villains were fallible in ways that made sense, and the backstory was intriguing.Last up was the best of the collection, a Christmas story involving a lost child and a kidnapping plot gone wrong Again, interesting and fallible villains helped this, along with the fact that it did not fit as much int standard mystery thriller plot tropes as the other stories do It was charming and sentimental in a good way.You ll probably getout of this if you enjoy the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous details that fill up the story I appreciated the colorful descriptions, but not is the romantic way they are clearly intended The rich sleuth couple has the vibe of the old Hart To Hart TV series, with he two main characters having a fun rapport and some witty dialogue The balancing of real and fictional politics is handled well I like to think I can enjoy the occasional mindless read just as much as the next galbut unfortunately My Gal didn t do it for me.Comprised of four novelettes, the book features crime solving duo Henry Parker Britland IV and his lovely new bride Sunday Unfortunately, the hunky ex president and the feisty congresswoman were too rich, too pretty, too charming, and just too much in love to be anything short of annoying.However, reading this I was reminded of a popular show from the 80s, Hart I like to think I can enjoy the occasional

this I was reminded of a popular show from the 80s, Hart to Hart, that ran from 1979 1984 and was followed up by eight made for TV movies, airing between 1993 1996 This book was published in 1996so who knows.Not awful the writing was fine and the stories were what they were , just not my kind of fluff, at least not any I actually remember liking Hart to Hart back in the day of course, I was ten
