Book Review: Pretty Little Killers: The Truth Behind the Savage Murder of Skylar Neese by Daleen Berry and Geoffrey Fuller

The murder of 16-year-old Skylar Neese by her 2 best friend, Rachel and Sheila. It is heinous and disturbing that 2 teenage girls could, in cold-blood, kill their close friend, and then go on as if nothing ever happened. For 6 months, they just went about their lives, until Rachel finally confessed about what happened. This book was well-written and she developed each character to be real people, ones that could be related to in real life. She talked about events from all sides, giving a glimpse into how these girls felt and behaved. I enjoyed this book and thought it was a good look into this horrendous event in the life of Skylar Neese and her loved ones.

Book Review: Bitter Remains: A Custody Battle, A Gruesome Crime, and the Mother Who Paid the Ultimate Price by Diane Fanning

Laura Jean Ackerson was murdered and dismembered in 2011. She was the mother of Grant Hayes’ sons and he wanted her completely out of the picture. Apparently, his wife Amanda Hayes, wanted the same. So they made it happen, and tried to make it look like they had nothing to do with it. They had made life extremely difficult in the past years, so of course, they made this new plan difficult, and extremely heinous as well. This book was well-written and well researched. I felt it was balanced between all of the focuses, but never lost sight of the actual victim, Laura Jean Ackerson. I enjoyed this book and recommend it to all who read true crime.
