“The Girl With A Clock For A Heart” evoked a Hitchcock plot when George’s former college girlfriend and one time love suddenly reappeared. George and Liana became entwined only a short time after they reunited when she asked George to return half a million dollars she had stolen. The plot had the usual amount of ridiculousness, and the smattering of characters who made impromptu appearances. Events happened quickly and without much basis. I liked the flashback story of George and Liana, which provided insight into the motivations for her present actions and the story’s conclusion. The writing and descriptions were good, but somehow lacked enough personal background about the characters for me to care about them. Even though the plot was engaging, I wasn’t all that invested in it. From early on, it was obvious what would happen, which lessened the impact of the ending’s twist. The book was entertaining, but not a favorite.
