To Love and To Kill by M. Willliam Phelps
Date Read: January 2016
Genre: True Crime
"Phelps dares to tread where few others will: into the mind of a killer."--TV Rage
"Phelps is a true-crime veteran."--New York Post
The missing-persons case of Heather Strong, a young, beautiful suburban mother, baffled Florida detectives. When the file was handed to a veteran investigator, he knew Heather was dead. The challenge was to find her body--and whoever killed her. Soon, a sordid triangle of sex, jealousy, and rage came to light.
The killers were cunning, manipulative, depraved--and they were as close to Heather as a man and a woman could possibly be. Vividly recreated by master investigative journalist M. William Phelps, his riveting account of seething small-town passions is a classic tale of crime and justice.

Overall Rating: DNF
DNF Thoughts: To Love and To Kill was well written but the case just wasn’t that compelling to me. At 33% I was just like get to the confession already. I was pretty sure I knew who did it (I googled once I decided to DNF and I was right) and think this book might have held my interest if we had gotten to the trial sooner. This will work for others more than me.

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
