    1 thought on “After All These Years”

    1. After All These Years is one of my favorite Susan Isaacs books, a wonderfully witty and entertaining murder mystery. Rosie Meyers is in the middle of a messy divorce, which gets suddenly messier when she goes down to her kitchen for a midnight snack and finds her husband Richie dead on the floor with a knife in his chest. Unfortunately for Rosie, she's the prime suspect. Since she knows she didn't do it, she goes on the lam, investigating Richie's life and tracking down the real murderer. Whodun [...]

    2. It's a long time that I read this book, and I remember that I did not like it that much, but there's one sentence/quote from the book that stuck in my memory:Said by one of the female characters: "I really wish God had created an interesting alternative to men."Yeah, you bet.

    3. this was cute and enjoyable. not exactly first class literature, but a fun plane ride kind of book. basically this woman finds her ex-husband murdered and then she is framed for the murder and has to go on the lam and find the killer herself. i'm not really spoiling anything; that's basically all on the book jacket. murder, mystery, rich people, and a little sex - what more can i ask for?

    4. Intriguing mystery and witty, read it at a time when I really needed a laugh and this definitely provided that. :)

    5. This is a silly story full of preposterous characters and a plot so ridiculous that it requires about fifty pages of denouement to explain at the end. And it's still fun to read. The convolutions of the plot almost defeated me, but then I would come across a sentence like this: "her sweater was tied around her shoulders in that secret knot only people who have gone to prep school know." Yes! I knew it! A secret knot! A just-for-fun quick read.

    6. Right after celebrating their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, Richie Meyers declares his love for another woman and leaves his wife, Rosie. Rosie’s devastated, but she has good friends and neighbors in Cass, Stephanie, and Madelaine, plus a teaching job she enjoys, two fully grown sons, and a very large home in the ritzy Shorehaven Estates at Long Island. Several weeks later, Rosie wakes up in the middle of the night and stumbles across Richie’s body on her kitchen floor. In her shock, Ros [...]

    7. A witty search for who killed the husband when we know for sure the wife didn't do it. She's on the run from the cops trying to figure out who Mandy is while having amazingly good fortune avoiding getting caught. A former high school boyfriend and a former student, now turned to crime for a living provide a safe haven and good advice. Fast paced, easy read!

    8. Laugh-out-loudThis mystery was so funny I really did laugh out loud during parts. The premise seems quite depressing, but the book isn't at all. The descriptions and the thoughts of the main character keep the tone light. I brought it to the beach and couldn't put it down.

    9. To be honest, I didn't really expect to like this book. But despite of that, I found it very intriguing and caught myself wondering what will happen next. Before I knew it I had already dived deep into the story, up until the very end. A book that was definitely worth my time!

    10. This was painful. I was 100+ pages in before I gave up. The writing was stilted, the plot unbelievable, and the characters were unreal and unable to relate to.

    11. I seen the movie and then read the bookThe book is way better than the movie. It leads you on and you're thinking that several people are the murderer, but then when you least expect it, you find out it's not who you thought. Great book to read!

    12. I finished this book up this morning on my bus ride into work. It took me five days to finish this, which is a little long for me. That could be an indicator of how well I liked this book. This is a difficult review for me because I did like the story overall, just some parts were a little much.The book was a fun read, just not a real page-turner. It wasn't calling to me to continue reading and forget about doing the laundry like some of the other books I have read in the past.The story was writ [...]

    13. Only read this book b/c it's on my LOST list, and it wasn't that great. I thought there were several plot holes that you could drive a truck through and it just didn't strike me as all that believable of a story, even in a pre internet pre cell phone world. Not very suspenseful or interesting as far as murder mysteries go. Which is just as well considering its minimal LOST relevancy. This book was seen in The Swan station near Sawyer's bed while he is recovering from injuries. Most think it was [...]

    14. Whatever shortcomings there are in the plotting, and I confess I must not know enough about the lives of the very rich in NYC and Long Island to spot such shortcomings, they're more than made up for by the sparkling, hilarious dialogue and the vibrantly colorful characters. Even bland, boring Carter Tillotson is somehow made memorable. Susan Isaacs shines at character development and scene-setting; I could very easily picture all the places and things she described.She's really no slouch at myst [...]

    15. I read After All These Years for my book club. We wanted to read something not so serious, we have been reading too much literary fiction and wanted to read something fun. This was a fun, quick read. Unfortunately, I was getting bored. Finally, after the last 3/4 of the book the pace picked up. I will say, I did not love it, but I did not hate it either. The story was a about Richie, and Rosy. They are both middle aged in a comfortable life. When suddenly, Richie announces to Rosy, he wants a di [...]

    16. Rosie Myers is an English teacher who is pushing 50. Her husband built a new company that did quite well and Rosie is living in a mansion. Her husband found himself a much younger mistress and he and Rosie are in the final stages of divorce when he is found "en brochette" on her kitchen floor with a carving knife stuck in his chest. She has a group of friends who surround her. One a self-styled poet writes her a poem: "Alone In the kind-sized cosmos of The Posturepedic Why?"Rosie is about to be [...]

    17. The cover reviews say "relentlessly funny" (which sounds like the humor has to hunt you down) and "laugh until you cry" or something along that line - I thought the writing was a little witty in spots and I was sometimes mildy amused. The main character Rosie seemed rather sex-obsessed for a 47 year old woman who described herself as menopausal. She is not trying to figure out who murdered her husband of 20+ years to bring about justice because she loved him - she's doing the detecting so she wi [...]

    18. This was a lite, cozy type of mystery with a lot of humor. The story was entertaining. The characters were interesting. I would read another of her books. However, I would hope this was an earlier book of hers and that her writing has become tighter. My biggest complaint was with the end of the book. The solution to the mystery was given in a monologue by the main character and continued for several chapters. There wasn't any action at the end - just a long description of how the murder took pla [...]

    19. Re-read. Again.One of my top book favorites ever. A woman goes to the kitchen in the middle of the night for a snack and stumbles on the dead body of her soon-to-be-ex-husband with a knife in his chest. She panics and grabs the knife to try and save him. When the police arrive they find a dead man who's with his soon-to-be-ex's finger prints on the murder weapon. Since the divorce is not final she will now inherit everything. The police have no reason to look further for the killer so Rose has t [...]

    20. A friend from tai chi loaned this book to me. At first I was very uninterested in it, but a few chapters in things shifted and I really wanted to know how the heroine would handle herself and how the murder mystery would all play out. I found it hard to put down for the middle part of the book. However, it became very predictable again at the end and I was no longer that interested in it, though I did hang in there and finish it since it was easy and quick to read. Not sure I'll want to read any [...]

    21. Susan Isaacs is one of my favorite authors. I love a good Chick suspense! I laughed my way through Rosie's (main character) antics as she discovers the person who killed her soon-to-be ex-husband Richie. Rosie was a character I was drawn to, and I rooted for her all through this book.It's a book that's been around a while, and although I've read it at least a dozen times over the years, I still keep it on my bookshelf. I highly recommend it!

    22. I just remembered this book as I was watching a Hallmark Movie with the same title. The book is much, much better than the movie. After a gala event celebrating their 30th anniversary, the husband announces he is leaving the wife for another woman. Months later, he is found in her kitchen with a knife in his chest. She "goes on the lamb". Do not watch the movie until you have read the book! Laugh out loud funny and a good mystery.

    23. Feeling a little underappreciated? In need of a bit of a lift?Susan Isaacs’ AFTER ALL THESE YEARS will give you a kick, enable you to trounce that enemy Time, and restore your faith in the world. I read it in one sitting, caring neither for food nor drink—though possibly I did have a nibble now and then.Thank you to whomever recommended it. Only problem now is what’s good enough to read next?Theresa de Valence, ReviewsByTdeV/

    24. Not a bad book, but not a good book either. A high school English teacher who has just been separated from her husband and is facing divorce when her husband is found murdered in her house. She runs into the city to find the real killer when she is regarded as the prime suspect. There really wasn't anything outstanding in this predictable plot. It was written to be a movie of the week, I think.
