Couldn't believe how someone could fake being pregnant and kill a real pregnant mother to take her baby. I remember not being able to put this book down.

i gave this book only two stars not because of the story itself but because of the large amount of unnecessary extra "crap" that was included and also because of the large amount of grammatical errors i found while reading. the story of what happened to bobbie jo and her baby was fine. it was a horrible thing that happened. i just didn't much care for how much extra stuff was added that didn't really pertain to bobbie jo and what happened to her. i mean, there were some parts and i was just thin ...more

It's hard to know what kind of rating to give this sad, depressing book. Did I enjoy it? No, not at all. Was I horrified and disturbed? Yes, so I must admit the author's work had a strong effect on me.

She writes about cases of caesarian abduction other than the title incident. I was only generally aware of these cases before, and had never read any details. She also discusses the Brandon Perry disappearance. This young man was most likely abducted and tortured to death, and her description of wh

BY FAR one of the craziest and "best" true crime books I have ever laid my hands on. I can't believe I forgot to add this when I first began on GR. This is a must for any t.c. reader. The story itself just is unimaginable and Fanning did a TERRIFIC job on the book.
If there was one t.c. book I was going to recommend it'd have to be this one as of right now.

It was very good until 3/4 to the end. Then the author begins telling you about similar murder if she needs to fill up the book to make it bigger. I found myself skipping chapters towards the end because I really just wanted to read the end of the story Baby Be Mine.... not all this other stuff.

I think the problem was not the idea that women were just a baby producer, but the low self-esteem of these women. They thought that they needed to have or do something to earn the love of a man. And producing a baby was just a handy answer.

Based on a true story-it was hard to read for the facts and how heartbreaking it is, but it was a good book and covered the events that happened in Skidmore, MO very well.

Decent, but wanders off on multiple tangents. Would've appreciated an update on the outcome of the trial of Lisa Montgomery.
