As one other reviewer mentioned, this is not exactly "true crime".That being said, it's subtitle is a *memoir* of friendship, sex, and murder--that part rings true. I was expecting this book to go more into the court proceedings, evidence, etc (much like a normal true crime book) but was actually pleasantly surprised by the memoir-style of writing.
Although I didn't get what I had anticipated, I really liked listening to this one. Hillary Huber is always a fantastic narrator and her voice lent well to this material. I found that the author was putting into words many thoughts I've had but haven't been able to articulate; especially those regarding female friendship stemming from childhood. A lot to think on.

This is definitely NOT just a true crime tale, more of a memoir about female friendship and grief. If you're looking for a gripping whodunit, this isn't exactly it. But, if you want to give it a chance, it's worth it. I found the perspectives on long (stemming from childhood) female friendship incredibly accurate; she put things into words that I've felt but never expressed. Her grieving process and the way she handles her best friend's murder remind me a little of Joan Didion's "The Year of Magical Thinking". I teared up a few times, as things hit close to home. And though I would've enjoyed more details about the murder case and the suspect's subsequent prosecution, if you head into this not expecting too much of that, it is still enjoyable.
I received a free copy of this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
