When our Sunday newspaper featured a book about a local murder that had been in the news for months, I bought it immediately. Mr Rosoboro had protested all along that he was innocent and someone else had murdered his wife so I read the book with great interest. You always have this little doubt that maybe they did convict the wrong man. I certainly don't feel that way any more. I think Mr. Rosoboro thought his money and standing in the community would save him from prison. It did not and after reading the book, I doubt if any appeals would ever be considered. Justice has been served with his conviction for murder.

It was a very good book and since it was true it makes it even better and that I live in the area and know the area quite well it just was interesting to read , surprising and sad, the author did a good job of writing about it, but there were a lot of repeats of the happenings. It went into alot of detail which is good, but I wonder if other readers that read it would know what was going on at times. Unfortuntley there were some details missing because some chose not to speak about the murder, they did not want to be in the book or something, which is of course their right. amazing how Mr Roseboro thought that he could get away with it. the another amazing thing was that none of the family went to the hospital and even asked about Jan Rosboro at the hospital and what was happening there. I can not figure that out. What were they thinking, because if that was any of my family I would have been there and asking questions and talking to the Drs and so forth. That to me is strange, I wonder if that question was asked of them at any time by the police or lawyers. Was that asked at the trial, it seems like they didn"t care as they should have.

This was so boring due to the fact that it kept repeating chapters. What you read in the beginning repeated itself in the end. Highly disappointed.

I have always enjoyed reading true crime novels; along with Ann Rule, M. William Phelps was my go to author when I wanted a good read. Not this time- Phelps crossed the line in this book from investigative journalist into sarcastic commentator. Summoning his inner Nancy Grace, Phelps sprinkles each page with bias. There was never any chance a reader could consider the husband and his mistress to be anything but the lying, cheating, scrum we were presented thanks to the running asides (complete with italics when Phelps wanted to stress a word) this book is full of. The only thing missing was animated eye rolling. I do not recall Phelps ever being this heavy handed with his other books, I would not have bought so many of them if he had. I purchased this novel and another of his at the same time. Instead of reading them back to back, as I had intended, I am going to hold off a while and hope the bad taste in my mouth goes away. Shame on you, Mr. Phelps! We know the WHAT prior to cracking open the page; we come to you to find out the HOW. Let us make up our own minds about the WHY.

This book is very fact based, and a quick intelligent read. I found it frustrating at times, as if lacking the emotions one garners from an Ann Rule book. I felt Jan's story was somehow lost in the overwhelming tide of adolescent sex/love emails between Michael and Angie. I would have loved to have heard more about Jan, her thoughts and feelings on MR's previous affairs (of which we know she was aware of). This is (obviously) no fault if the authors, as he states the families refused to speak with him in detail. All in all, it's a well told, unnecessarily tragic event. Thoughts and prayers to Jan's children and family.

One word best describes this book. WOW! I thought it would be impossible to read a true crime book, that held my attention more than Death Trap, but Love Her To Death exceeded it. I loved this book on so many different levels. First of all, it was a case that I knew nothing about the case, yet by the end of the book, I felt well informed. Michael Roseboro was a millionaire who was a serial adulterer, and was married to a wonderful woman named Jan. Michael began an affair with Angela Funk who was married and had to children, and later on, gave birth to a baby boy by Michael. Michael and Angela began an affair as well as, exchanging numerous emails and text messages. The way Mr Phelps points out the stupidity and absurdity of their emails and text messages was brilliant. As I was reading this book, I kept thinking that Michael Roseboro and Scott Peterson were much alike. One summer night Michael murdered Jan by their pool and try to stage to crime scene to look like a drowning. This is truly a heartbreaking case, because Jan seemed to be a wonderful human being, who truly not only loved her family, but she also loved her friends and tried to contribute positively to her community. Angela Funk is a pathetic human being and a disgrace to women. Michael Roseboro is exactly where he deserves to be, in prison. This is by far the best true crime book, I have ever read.

Interesting read but a bit dragged out. As in it was a long story that could have been made much shorter.

Phelps succeeds again at capturing the readers attention as if the event was being observed in real time, thus making the book hard to put down. Some parts are slow but the ending picks up and well explains the trial and post trial story. This sadly is a story with no winners,as several children are left in the end without parents, and a lovely person dead for the sake of a spouse's selfish whims. Very tragic.

I am a loyal Phelps fan, but this book was not one of his best. I do not know what happened, but I guess everyone can have a fleuk. I would not recommend anyone to buy this one.
