    I like to think I can enjoy the occasional "mindless" read just as much as the next gal...but 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 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 1996...so who knows. Not awful (the writing was fine and the stories were what they were), just not my kind of "fluff," at least not anymore (I actually remember liking Hart to Hart back in the day--of course, I was ten).

    Have you ever heard of a president that was so good that the people wanted to break the law in the constitution so that he could stay in office? Well Henry Parker Britland IV was that president. He was very good at negotiating and he married the perfect lady. This book is made up of four mysteries and muy favorite one was about Henry and his wife Sunday and they bought back the old Britland yacht the Columbia. This yacht has been in his family for years and was a party boat for presidents for years.

That night after Henry went to sleep someone stole the envelope and his journal of what happened that night. To find out what happens next pick up this book in the library.

    Fast quick read of several short stories. Henry Britland IV is a beloved former President, who married a real cute girl, seventeen years younger than himself, after he left the White House. She is a Congresswomen who has down to the earth roots, and is smart, and kind as well as being beautiful. Together, the two of them find themselves in situations where they have to right the wrongs, or, as Mary Higgins Clark puts it, "they make a formidable team of sleuths".

    This book contains four short stories about a young, perfect, good-looking ex-president and his younger, just as perfect and good-looking wife, who is a congresswoman. The characters in this dynamic duo seem to have no flaws. In addition to being the greatest president who ever lived (after having been elected in his mid-thirties), he now can solve mysteries with his equally talented wife! Totally unrealistic but an ok way to pass the time.

    I'm listening to this one on tape right now. I got it from the library because I remembered enjoying it a few years ago. I don't know why. The main characters are the most perfectly perfect couple in the history of the world with perfectly perfect lives. I want to smack them both. Who cares what happens to either one of them? I need to get another book on tape and return this one!

    This collection of shorts about an American ex-President and his darling Congressman wife will suffice if this is the only book left in the hostel book swap and there is time to kill at a coffee shop. Even then, the minutes might be better spent people watching.

    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.

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 get more out 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.

And who am I to decline the offer eh? It is MHC we are talking here, which I boldly admitted that I’m a big fan! Hehe This is actually It’s been a while since I’ve read a Mary Higgins Clark book eh? Well, blame it to my never ending reading list, which usually doubled whenever I finish a book. This time, since I manage to be productive and read all five books in my reading list early than what I expected, and since the opportunity were so good to me, I was able acquire a book of MHC! And who am I to decline the offer eh? It is MHC we are talking here, which I boldly admitted that I’m a big fan! Hehe This is actually just a short read, just about 206 pages overall. But just like her other book that I’ve read, The Anastasia Syndrome and other stories, this book also comprises of not just one story, but four short stories! But unlike the Anastasia Syndrome, this book totally deserved my 4-star rating. But what’s also great about this book is that it features MHC’s new husband and wife team of sleuths. But unlike Alvirah and Willy Meehan, these two new couples we’re uhm, I would say the younger version of the latter, quite interesting eh? But unlike her previous books, this one has quite a handful of words that I need to consult my friend Meriam D for its meaning. And having mention about the four short stories in just this one book, I’m making a break-down of this book starting from the first short story to the next. A CRIME OF PASSION In this story, we’ve got to learn more about the newest sleuthing duo of MHC. And oh lala! One of the America’s sexiest man eh? That’s quite a catch, haha. This first story also serves as the introduction of this sleuthing duo. Honestly, I find it a bit dull. Maybe because I’ve just read a teeny weeny romance story and switching to suspense is quite a rush, haha. As what the title says, it definitely is a crime of passion. Henry’s (main male character, which is also the previous president of America) close friend and political ally was the prime suspect of killing his young lover, which was shot 3 times in his library. Which he even managed to have a good night sleep in his bedroom after leaving Arabella (the victim) bled to life in his library. At first, I already have guessed that it’s not Tommy (Henry’s close friend and political ally) who killed the poor Arabella. But I was curious on who the heck was the culprit. And dang! The story came too fast that I was left surprised by the sudden exposure of the real culprit. But I just realize that it’s just a short read with four short stories in it. So the idea of delaying the exposure of the culprit is already out of the picture. So far, this story isn’t one of my favorites of all four short stories, but it still managed to spook me. THEY RAN AFTER THE PRESIDENT’S WIFE This story is longer than the first short story. And what I notice was the unnecessary blabber. Haha, I’m already very eager to read the suspense part so that is why I’m so looking forward to read the action part than to read a dull blabber. (me being so impatient haha) As obvious as the title says. This story started when Sunday (main female character and Henry’s wife) was kidnapped by an unknown culprit. This story is quite challenging for they all have no clue on how to find her. And I was so touched on Henry’s undying love for Sunday. My oh my! Who knows that America’s sexiest man could be that charming? So far, the only concern that I find in this story is the blabber part. HAIL COLUMBIA! This book is all about the disappearance of an honorable politician Garcia Del Rio which took place when Henry was just twelve years old in a yacht named Columbia. This story is going to be interesting on how MHC will going to write this story for obviously, the crime was taken place a long time ago. But dang! I never thought it could be this interesting. My oh my! MHC manage to amazed me in just this short read huh. So far, this book is my favorite of all the four short stories. MERRY CHRISTMAS / Joyeux Noël As the title goes, this one’s talk about Christmas. At first, I was a bit doubtful if I’m going to enjoy this short read, for it’s no secret that I was never a fan of MHC’s holiday books. But in all fairness, this book is quite a, uhm, how do say this?Well, this story is heartwarming. Imagine if you’re a mother and found out that your beloved son was kidnapped? (beware: this one’s going to be a bummer ehe) But fortunately, the kidnapped act gone wrong. And this little boy, Jacques, found its way to the sleuthing duo that made the way for this little boy to be reunited to his parents. I think it’s a great choice to end this book eh? So that’s it guys. That’s the reason behind my 4-star rating. If you happen to read this story, then please feel free to share how you find it on the comment area below. Rating: 4 out of 5 stars!

    I occasionally will pick up a book by Mary Higgins Clark. My mom loves her books, and I’ve picked up the habit of buying them when I see them at yard sales and thrift stores. Her books make for decent quick, mindless reads and transport me back to a time when bold-colored pant suits, shoulder pads, and permed bangs were the norm. Usually, I can figure out the culprit within the first couple of chapters, but the suspenseful journey of the main character is usually a fun ride.

Usually, I can figure out the culprit within the first couple of chapters, but the suspenseful journey of the main character is usually a fun ride. This is not so much the case with My Gal Sunday. Granted, My Gal Sunday is a collection of short-stories/novellas, which almost by definition lack depth and solid character development. I enjoy reading the occasional collection of short stories, especially then they involve characters that have been well-developed in novels or other media. Short-stories, do not, however, mesh well with the suspense genre. There’s no time or space to develop any real since of drama, the characters fall flat, and I’m very disappointed by the lack of red herrings. Where’s the suspicious guy everyone thinks done it, but really he’s the only one who know what actually happened and wants to help in his own creepy way? This depth that’s usually present, albeit wadding-pool deep, is missing completely from this collection. The four stories in My Gal Sunday all revolve around husband and wife team Henry and Sunday. Oh, and did I mention that he’s a former president and she’s a congresswoman? and that they somehow have the time to solve mysteries and fight crime together? Most of Clark’s protagonists are well-to-do women, but this one takes the cake on the absurdity of the situation. If you want to read a decent thriller, Mary Higgins Clark is usually a good author to turn to, but I highly recommend picking up one of her full length books and not this collection that seems lazy and thrown together.

This is a super-quick read of four loosely connected stories about two amateur sleuths-a husband and wife team. He's a former U.S. president; she's a congressional representative. All four of these stories are absolutely free of profanity or sexual descriptions, and while none of them are profound or deeply moving, all of them are a delight to read to one degree or another. In the first story, the ex-president and his wife, Sandra, (nicknamed Sunday) must determine how the girlfriend of the secretary of state died. In another story, Sunday is kidnapped, and she must send an encoded clue in a video message to her frantic husband. Another story involves a long-ago assassination on a haunted yacht, and the final story is a delightful Christmas tale that involves a young abandoned child and his reunion with his family. None of these stories will leave you in tears or shouting with jubilation. They're fun, quick reads that are refreshingly squeaky clean and will occupy precious little of your reading time. They're good enough to help you drown out the oft-repeated stories of that obnoxious uncle at the family picnic, but they don't require so much concentration that you can't focus on anything else. It's a great summer read.

Henry and Sunday make a formidable team of sleuths–and never more so then when they set out to solve crimes occurring among their friends in political high society. The first crime involves a congressman friend of theirs who is being charged of a crime he can’t recall. While they race to save their friend they learn more than they want to about the killer. In the second crime Sunday has been kidnapped and Henry is forced to back to the White House and race the clock to rescue his beloved wife, before her time is up. The Next story deals with a yacht named the Colombia that Henry and his bride purchase through an auction over bidding Angelica De Rio who has papers hidden on the yacht talking about some evil things she had done to her spouse. In the last mystery a couple goes on a honeymoon and comes home to find their son Jacques has been kidnapped. They are informed not to alert the police. Henry and Sunday stumble upon the boy while trimming their tree for Christmas. The kidnappers have lost their claim to the boy when a car accident sends the boy running as far from them as possible. I think these stories are great they give you a glimpse of what can happen outside politics.

The casting could be anyone from the richest to the poorest person, although I would still keep the same amount of characters. Just change the way they present themselves through out the movie and there appearance. I would probably keep it more towards an adult audience or teens especially mothers and teenage daughters. The reason for this is because movies such as this one are always shown on life time and I myself stay interested with some of those movies.

    Really, I'd give this a 3.5 of 5 stars, because it's just a warm fuzzy of a book. The erudite crime-solving team of Sunday and Henry is built sort of on the romance of the Kennedys, the political savvy of the Clintons, and the American love for old British connections. And it goes from there; there's very little depth or suspense, but you still wish it had been you to marry this wonderfully unreal man. And so what if all of the villains are outrageously dim and predictable? That's okay, Henry wi Really, I'd give this a 3.5 of 5 stars, because it's just a warm fuzzy of a book.

It helps that I rather adore radio drama and am quite sad that I was born long after its golden age; I can totally see myself getting as involved in My Gal Sunday as little MHC was. A fluff book, and one that's sufficiently fluffy enough that I think I'll hang on to it. Besides, the adult in me is highly amused by all of the now-outdated politics and the references to the way the White House worked that are absolutely no longer viable in the new millennium. Ah, the 90s. Halcyon, no, but definitely a different kind of broken.

I prefer her regular type of stories that take a bit of time to grow. It took me quite a while to be able to finish it. I would start one story and I just was not really able to get that into it. Like I said above, a good book for someone that is looking for short stories (less than 100 pages), with a quick read. I have to say I don't think this is one of her better books. I will continue to read her books though as her others have my attention.

And I enjoyed it enough I may look up another of her full-length books.

    I read this book because it was on a 2015 book-list I am going through right now. Let me just say: I did not want to read it. But I'm glad I did. I loved the two main characters - Henry and Sunday, and their cute little marriage, although I did find their age difference a little creepy. My only complaint was the CONSTANT "darling", "my love", "sweetheart" between the two newlyweds. I get it: they just got married, and they are helplessly in love, but really?!

    Not good! Don't know why I persisted in reading so many Mary Higgins Clark books. Probably I figured that once I started the series I should just keep going. But they're bad! Very formulaic, and they all have a supposedly bad-ass heroine who coincidentally always falls into some sort of peril near the end that only the male romantic lead can save her from. That is some bullshit! The women are clever enough to figure out anything else, but always need to be rescued by their prince at the end? Bul Not good!

    Four short stories centered around a former President of the US, Henry Britland, and his beautiful wife, "Sunday," who solves mysteries in the DC area: (1) ex-Secretary of State is framed for murder, (2) Sunday is kidnapped by a lunatic who holds a grudge, (3) Henry solves a 32-year-old murder when a power-hungry woman killed her husband, (4) on Christmas Eve a lost little boy shows up on their doorstep after escaping a kidnapping. All stories could have been full novels.

    I love how this book had multiple stories in one about Sunday. Being the presidents wife has its demands on its own but when Sunday finds herself in deep trouble her only hope is her wits and subtle clues she gives to her husband. Being a blonde, and younger then the love of her life, people greatly underestimate her abilities. I know this isn't a long review, and I've seen some poor ones about this book, but I loved every page of this book.

I even had a heart wrenching moment wig the last story. Well done!

    This is a book of short stories about an all too perfect husband/wife sleuthing team. They are all too perfect in that they are rich, both attractive and all around too wonderful. Frankly, I found their perfectionism a bit much, and therefore, had to subtract two stars. The stories were okay, but there really wasn't any suspense involved because the couple was too perfect, so you knew that everything was going to turn out okay. Definitely not one of my favorite Mary Higgins Clark books. I would This is a book of short stories about an all too perfect husband/wife sleuthing team.

    This is one of Clark's older books which I had somehow missed over the years. However, I did not miss much. This book is divided into four short stories where a former President and his wife become amateur sleuths. I only got through the second half of the second story before I became bored. I like Clark's other books where she leads the reader on to different suspects. There isn't time for her to develop the characters in these short stories to make it suspenseful for me as she is in her other This is one of Clark's older books which I had somehow missed over the years.

    I have been a fan of Mary Higgins Clark for a while now. I usually enjoy her style of writing. The problem with this collection of short stories is....they are just too short. While the characters are likable, the plot line speeds along until a bad guy appears out of left field. The lure of a mystery is to try to figure it out before the last chapter. Not have it handed to you. Definitely would not recommend this book to anyone.

    Love this collection of short stories introducing the character couple Sunday and Henry. This is my first Mary Higgins Clark book - thank you free library at the Pine Island, Florida RV Park - and won't be my last. This book is light and fun. It's my reintroduction back into the "travel and beach friendly" world of the short story! Glad to see you again, short story! Glad to meet you, Mary!

    This Mary Higgens Clark book had a very different feel to it than most of her other works, as it was split into four short stories with the same charismatic couple showcased in each story. The couple was interesting and the stories intriguing, but they didn't have the depth and development to more fully draw in and excite readers. With that being said, it was a very quick and likable-enough book. Grade: B-

    I love Mary Higgins Clark books and it was really interesting to read her version of a book of short stories. I like how all the stories were about the same characters, and how they all fit together. The element of mystery, paired with the high class sophistication of the couple, was great. Definitely a quick read worth the time.
