I would actually give this 3.5 stars because this was a good set of short stories and I do like the main characters. That being said I felt the plots and twists could have been more developed. However this was a good easy read and I do enjoy Mary Higgins Clark books and wouldn't mind reading more of her character Sunday. ( )

i loved the fact that it followed Sunday and Henry for along time, i really like the different stories. This book seems like a set of shorts all together bout a couple him being the former president of the US and her a Congresswoman.
In the first story his close friends has been framed for murder they help him out and find who the murder is when the murder traps Sunday and the friend at the friends house.
The second Sunday her self is kidnapped and almost killed by the brother of a man she put in jail , when she was a public defender. Henry and crew find her and save her.
The next one is when Henry buys a yacht that his family had owned and lent to the presidents of the US for years until a name went missing on it one night , that man was the Prime Minster of Costa Barria Garcia del Rio... they take the yacht to Boca Roton FL for a weekend , and then were going to have it all redone so they could lent it out again.. finally the missing piece to the mans death was found and his murder put to justice.
The last story in this book is about Christmas and a little boy who shows up on their lawn 2 days before Christmas.. they keep him til Christmas eve late at night when his parents find out he was kidnapped then lost and where he is.
A great book ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0671014919, Mass Market Paperback)

Imagine Nick and Nora Charles with a taste for politics and none for gin, and you'd be pretty close to Mary Higgins Clark's Henry Parker Britland IV and his attractive young wife, Sandra O'Brien Britland, known as Sunday. Henry, possessor of an enormous inherited fortune and known as one of America's sexiest men, has just finished his second term as president of the United States and is happily retired at 44, puttering around his New Jersey country estate. Sunday, who bootstrapped her way up from a modest working-class background, is a junior congresswoman with a reputation for smarts. The two met, romantically enough, on the eve of Henry's leaving office, fell madly in love, and were married six weeks later. In this collection of four pleasantly readable stories, the sleuthing duo catch the murderer of a statesman's flashy amour, endure Sunday's kidnapping and mastermind her rescue, solve the 34-year-old mystery of the disappearance of a foreign prime minister from the Britland family yacht, and reunite a ransomed boy with his parents at Christmas. Of the four, "They All Ran After the President's Wife" may be the best plotted, and has a particularly amusing McGuffin in the character of a caviar-loving terrorist. While the suspense is on the mild side throughout, the romance is lighthearted but sincere, and the occasional flashes of wit are dryly appealing. It's a bonbon, to be enjoyed for its brief sweetness. --Barrie Trinkle
