I mean...it was good, and I see what she was trying to do, I just don't know if I really "felt" it- I think she could have written her memoir on its own - it was fascinating and interesting to read about. She could have also written the true crime part on its own too. The memoir part of it is well done, I understand she's working through her memories, emotions and how she feels about working on a case that hits home personally - but it felt mashed in there and in the end I didn't really get why that case was as mashed into her own story as it was. The case itself is also very interesting, but then it seems to unravel, or the connection with her memoir part of it unravels - lots of unanswered questions posed throughout the book that I didn't think were answered. I think I'm in the minority for my opinion, it's just...I don't know...I didn't feel it worked out well for me. If my babbling has made any sense.
I did see posts on @Litsy where people had gone to hear her read and came away fascinated and I think that helped with their love for the book. So many times the author's perspective/information/reading on the book helps elevate it so much!
