I've Got You Under My Skin, although somewhat predictable, was quite entertaining. I enjoyed the characters, who were all very intriguing with their own secrets and doubts. The scene, background and characters were described in a way that I felt as though I was watching a movie in my head. Mary Higgins Clark has a gift for her descriptive writing and ability to render feelings through her words. ( )

Good plot

Good book with couple different plots to keep up with. Character development was solid and good liked the short chapters. ( )

This is a whodunit soap opera-ish mystery. It did a great job of making everyone appear guilty at times and not guilty at others. Also all of the potential suspects are from the same circle so there’s lots of drama between them. They have history with each other and most of it isn’t good. Many of them hate one another actually, and almost everyone hated the person who was killed. ( )

Twenty years ago there was a murder at a gala celebrating the college graduation of four friends—Claire Bonner (at whose house the party was hosted), Nina Craig, Alison Schaefer, and Regina Callon. Claire’s mother, Betsy Powell is suffocated with a pillow assumedly by one of the guests at this party, which also includes Claire’s rich stepfather Robert Powell, their sour-faced housekeeper Jane, and rich family friend George.

Laurie Moran, a failing TV producer, husband Greg was murdered several years back in the presence of her young son. Laurie has the idea to do a reality-show program where unsolved crimes are re-enacted. The first case she picks for her program is of course the case of murdered socialite, Betsy Powell. The main participants are gathered once again At the beautiful home of Rob Powell to reenact that night and uncover some answers. As the graduation party is re-visited after all this time, two things are clear: someone at the party got away with murder, and each of the people there had a reason for murdering Betsy.

There are 2 parallel mysteries going on. Who killed Betsy Powell 20 years ago and why was Laurie's husband murdered by "Blue eyes" who said Laurie would be next just before he murdered her son. ( )
