When Day Breaks: Review

When Day Breaks (Sunrise Suspense Society #1)
When Day Breaks
Author: Mary Jane Clark
Publisher: HarperLuxe
Series: Sunrise Suspense Society #1
Pages: 448


On the day she died, Constance Young was the undisputed star of morning television. But her plans to move herself and her loyal audience to another network were canceled when she ended up at the bottom of her swimming pool. And the fabled unicorn amulet, the centerpiece of the upcoming Camelot exhibit at New York's Cloisters museum--which Constance had been wearing during her final hours--is missing.

A morning-show veteran and now anchor of the KEY Evening Headlines, Eliza Blake is determined to discover who wanted Constance out of the way . . . and why. But the deeper she digs, the more twisted the trail to Constance's killer becomes--as the list of suspects grows longer by the minute. The one sure thing is that Constance Young made a lot of enemies, and now one of them is Eliza's enemy--and possibly her killer--as well. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts:

Constance Young decides to leave her current job to work for another network. It's possible that many of her loyal viewers would follow her to her new station and somebody is not about to let that happen. Constance is found dead in the bottom of her swimming pool and Eliza Blake, an anchor woman, is determined to uncover the truth behind Constance's murder. She may be the next victim.

I purchased this book thinking it was by Mary Higgins Clark, *I was tricked* who I am a huge fan of. When I got home I realized that it wasn't but I am actually glad I did because I really enjoyed it. The list of suspects just becomes bigger and bigger and I was actually surprised to find out who the murderer was. I like when a story keeps me guessing and this one did just that. If you are a fan of mystery/suspense then you should give this one a shot. I will be looking for more by this author in the future. 

Have you read anything by Mary Jane Clark? If so what are your thoughts and do you have any recommendations?  

*I purchased this book with my own money.



  1. When I quickly glanced at the books cover, I instantly thought it read Mary Higgins Clark. I was also duped until I read your post and looked again at the author's name. Well, I'm glad it was a good read.

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought it was by Mary Higgins Clark. :)

  2. I love it when a surprise book purchase is a good one and since, I love a good mystery, I think I will be checking this one out!

    1. You'll have to let me know if you read it. :)
