My Gal Sunday

After almost ten years Mary Higgins Clark is still one of my comfort reads. It’s both a credit and a shame that by the end of one of her stories I am nearly skimming, just so that the suspense won’t kill me.

My Gal Sunday is pure escapist–after all, she cites an old radio soap as her inspiration for the couple. Henry Britland IV is handsome, charming, wealthy, and the nation’s most popular former president; his new wife, Sandra “Sunday” O’Brien, is a beautiful young Congresswoman. Together they tackle four cases with political and international ties, including the obligatory Christmas heartwarmer. A little suspension of disbelief is required, especially for everyone’s undying worship of the couple–the Kennedys have nothing on them. Still a fun read, however!
