Lisa Montgomery presented her husband, Kevin, with their newborn baby girl, while a state way, police were investigating the brutal murder of 23-year-old Bobbie Jo Stinnett. She'd been found lying in a pool of blood, and investigators soon realized that someone had strangled Bobbie Jo to death, then cut the fetus from her womb. When they found Bobbie Jo's baby in Lisa's arms, they knew who was responsible for this grisly murder.

What disappointed you about Baby Be Mine?

While Dianne Fanning is a good author. She really missed her mark on this book. It had little to do with the victim Bobbi Jo. The life of the attacker is more profiled than the story of the victim. She detailed nearly every other crime in the town of Skidmore. Chapter upon chapter of another unrelated crime is detailed. Where did this book go wrong?! Book is full of fillers and disappointment. Hard to maintain focus without having to back up and listen again and again. If a book is to be written about Bobbi Jo Stinnett another author is going to have to write it.

Which character – as performed by Shelley M. Johnson – was your favorite?

The life of the victim was written so poorly. I found that since the life of Lisa Montgomery was much more detailed, so therefore more interesting - I'm sure that's not the angle the author desired but that's how it came out.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment and found myself losing focus. Dianne Fanning just did not deliver! :(

Any additional comments?

The best part of this book is the narrator. Shelley Johnson gets the five stars on this one!
