The Suspense Ends Friday Night

Mary Higgins Clark had yet to write one of her 42 (so far) bestselling books when her fourth baby, Carol, arrived just months after the author sold her first short story. Both bring their pens to the Bunch of Grapes tonight to sign and discuss, in Mary’s case, The Shadow of Your Smile, and in Carol’s case, Wrecked, a new Regan Reilly mystery set on the Cape.


Signings by MHC, as she is known on the two separate fan pages devoted to her on Facebook (not bad for a Dame of the Order of St. Gregory the Great born in 1927), regularly attract readers out the door, and Carol has legions of fans as well (they call her Carol not CHC), so prepare to stay a while.

The event begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Main street, Vineyard Haven store.
