J-Dub’s Review of “She Wanted It All: A True Story of Sex, Murder, and a Texas Millionaire” by Kathryn Casey

I read this book because I was in between and the story happened to take place in and around Austin Texas. I always enjoy reading something when I know the landmarks. However my enjoyment stops there since true crime is no longer a favorite genre of mine. I used you read books by Ann Rule in the same way someone might pop through a cartridge of Pez candy. Not any longer. Through therapy I learned not to read anything that makes me anxious. I’ve reduced medical journals as well. One day I’ll just keel over. It’s better that way. But I jest. Kind of, sort of, maybe.

I can summarize this true life event in a six word story …

Greedy bitch did it for money!

Her poor girls. Actually poor everyone who crossed her path. Something was missing inside. No soul. And that’s if you believe the prosecution… and I do.

I rate 3 stars. Goodreads overall is at 4.09 stars.

As always more to come.

Note to Self

Don’t start a post on one device … your phone and move to your desktop and then go back to yet another device … your iPad.  WP just can’t handle it.  You run the risk of your final Picasso turning into a dud.

Now Kindle …  Kindle can sync like nobody’s business.  I wish WP would ask me if I wanted to go to the last page written.  Yea, do that WP.  That’d be sweet.

I wonder if that is the cloud based stuff at work.  See I am a Luddite lite.  I have no idea how … I just know the what.  I am too impatient to sit down and go through painstaking steps to diagnose issues.  I’d rather right click to oblivion.     I also forget correct terminology.  While I might figure something out and be able to repeat it for myself, I cannot explain what I did to save my life.  

Anyway, that is all.  Had to get that out.  No more multi-device posts for moi.

As always, more to come.
