Fascinating story of a woman who thought she was smarter than everyone else, and an ironic study of a psychologist who had real psychological issues of her own. Although no one can really know all the details of this story and what motivated this woman, it is also a tragic tale of a man who lost his life because of the twisted desires of a disturbed and manipulative personality.

This was a very good book. I love books based on true stories. I can see how people could get sucked in by Michelle. I do believe she killed her husband and I believe she used the army guy as her escape goal. Hopefully some day the truth will be told.

My older sister has lived in Fayetteville for years and since I do read a lot of true crime figured this one might be even more interesting since I know the area. I'll have to read it soon to see.

This was a great book. It got me hooked and I couldn't put it down but it's sad to think this really happened to the poor husband.

Abrupt Ending

This book held my interest but I was surprised and a little disappointed when it ended abruptly. Also, photos would have been appreciated.
