I started reading this book because Melanie McGuire was a local. It was a interesting book and I found out things about this case that was not made public before and during the trial.

Captivating true crime. Evil woman no soul.

I can't fathom when people believe they have committed the perfect crime. I was so relieved that the jury found her guilty with only circumstantial evidence. I definitely believe that her step-father was her partner in crime: he was a creep from the beginning.
Donna Hunt
Horrible crime done to a man (whether a bad guy or not). With reading the story and looking at the pictures I'm convinced the police were correct in their thinking of the wife killing her husband.
Kristen Doherty
This was a good book..I still have many doubts that Melanie McGuire did this crime alone. I think someone helped her with carrying the body and dismembering it.
Jane Morris
Couldn''t put down. E-book (amazon Kindle) had no pictures. I would have liked to see pictures. Will google and find out more. I think she would have needed accomplice.
Joan Lloyd
Wedding Cake mysteries, vol one. Fun, light with a satisfying ending to the murder mystery. Actually I read vol 2 first - didn't spoil a thing.
Julie
I do not think that the entire story hasn't come out yet. There was no way that Melanie was physically able to carried it out by herself.
Jeannie
Loved this book, riveting and never boring, it held my attention all the way through to the end.
Amy
Nurse Melanie McGuire was one twisted psychotic bitch. She deserves to be where she ended up: prison.
