Publisher's Summary

She thought she had married her soul mate. But when Carol Kennedy could no longer tolerate her husband's reckless womanizing and out-of-control spending, the artist, therapist, and mother of two had to let him go. Just weeks after their divorce, Carol was found in her Arizona ranch home - bludgeoned to death with a golf club. Her ex, Steven DeMocker, was the prime suspect. Yet it took the authorities months to arrest him - and years to convict....

could have been better

well written, but a hard listen because the narration was awful. dull, monotone and boring. it could have been so much better with a different narrator!

Except for the narration, a good book.

Well written. Interesting. The narration was harsh, rapid and some of the pronunciations were jarring and repeated throughout. I won't listen to another book with this narrator.

Well researched and well written book.

What made the experience of listening to Then No One Can Have Her the most enjoyable?

Even though I already knew this story due to it's coverage on the show 48 hours, the writer was able to keep my attention throughout this book and included aspects of the story that were not part of the tv coverage. This was a well researched and well written true crime story. If this genre has your interest, I recommend this book and this writer.

Too much detail on folks not directly involved in story. I dont need to know what people wore to candlelight vigil for peripheral person....

Too Draggy

Classic tale of philandering husband, long-suffering wife, protracted marital breakup.
Only mystery: did hubby really do it? Probably, but granny-flat Jim looks suspicious too.
When the end finally arrived, I was just glad that it was the end.
Sorry.

Great narrator!

Would you consider the audio edition of Then No One Can Have Her to be better than the print version?

Absolutely, Callie Beaulieu is a fantastic narrator.

Which character – as performed by Callie Beaulieu – was your favorite?

Somehow this narrator just knows how to bring each character to life in a unique way. It's quite amazing, her talent for personifying without overacting these various parts.

Any additional comments?

This narrator is just pitch perfect for true crime, mystery, thrillers. I would buy anything she narrates in those genres. Fantastic job, thank you.

Great Read

Compassionate narration of a tragic story. One of the better true crime books I have found recently. It makes you think about the destruction one spouse can inflict upon their own family. Some men don't learn it is cheaper to keep your wife happy than get a divorce and one of the best ways to keep her happy is to not have affairs.

Another excellent book from Caitlin!

Would you listen to Then No One Can Have Her again? Why?

Yes. This book is written very well and it kept me stuck to my phone for days until I finished it. I was using every minute I had to listen.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Then No One Can Have Her?

When Steven decided it was a good idea to use his under age daughter to send a fake email to the lawyers ... just when you think he has gone as low as he can go .... then he pulls this stunt!

What about Callie Beaulieu’s performance did you like?

It was easy to understand her and she made it a pleasure to listen to the book. Very nice voice and pronunciation.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A greedy father ruins his family to satisfy his love for money and sex.

Any additional comments?

Congratulations to Caitlin on a job very well done. One of the best true crime books I've read and it was a perfect choice of narrator too.
