"If you don't listen to the My Favorite Murder podcast, you probably won't connect with this book. However, I've been a long time fan and enjoyed every single page. A delightful discussion with two women who strive to be vulnerable for the benefit and growth of themselves and for others. It has me reflect on the person I strive to be and hopefully one day I can be as open as them. Love this book!"
"Everything Karen and Georgia do is five stars. I was expecting a lot out of this book and it delivered that and more. Not only have these ladies satiated my desire for true crime week after week, they have shown me and countless others why it is we are so interested in the subject. I love how the book describes perfect how you simultaneously are and aren’t the victim of your situation, how it isn’t your fault that life happened to you, but it is your responsibility to react the best way you can. I am endlessly thankful for the light they have shed on such a taboo subject (and my own personal life) as well as the voice they have given to victims and their family. Stay sexy and don’t pass up on this book."
"Every woman should ready this! Such good advice and so funny! I can’t recommend enough! I have bought several copies as gifts! "
