I’m going to be completely honest; I had to read Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories a couple of times before I finished the entire book. There was nothing wrong with it, but the series of short stories became a little boring after a while. I wanted something long that I looked forward to reading. I’m going to keep this entirely short. I love anything written by Mary Higgins Clark. However, I wouldn’t recommend this book if you’re looking for a long, mysterious, and suspenseful read. Don’t get me wrong, the plot for each story was interesting. I especially liked reading “Death Wears a Beauty Mask” and “The Man Next Door”. Both of these stories were quite thrilling. As of now I prefer novels over short stories. If you’ve never read a book by Mary Higgins Clark, I would strongly suggest reading Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories to help you get a feel for her writing style.
