My Rating: 4 Stars!
I am really, really enjoying this series. The subject of this one is Belle Gunness, a story which has fascinated me for years. I enjoy suspense and true crime, anyway, but this woman was a monster. Liz Tolsma tells her story well indeed. If you have not read this series yet, I highly recommend it. I received a copy of this book by Barbour Publishing via Net Galley. I was not requited to leave a review and the opinions in this review are expressly my own.
