I'll Take Care of You by Caitlin Rother

Nanette Johnston Packard, a sexy divorcee, liked to meet men at the gym and through personal ads. Soon after she began dating millionaire Bill McLaughlin, he moved her and her kids into his bay-front home in Newport Beach. But one man was never enough for Nanette. . .
Eric Naposki, her NFL linebacker lover, fulfilled Nanette's wilder cravings. Together they schemed to make her fiance's fortune their own. When McLaughlin was gunned down, authorities had suspicions--but no proof. Pulitzer-nominated writer Caitlin Rother explores this chilling story of a woman who seemed to have it all--until justice finally had its day.

My Review:

An indepth look a premeditated murder. Caitlin Rother has brought this whole sordid affair into light, from the beginning to the end.
She explores how it took so very long to get justice for the deceased. We walk in each of the participants shoes, and some of them are not very nice.
We follow these individuals from way before the crime is committed to a long time later, waiting for the hands of justice to fall.
We find greed, but to a greater extent than most. We find sex used as a lure, and the killing of a man who rather saw it coming.
What I found very ironic was Bill McLaughlin's thriftiness with his first wife, the mother of his children, down to pennies. Then answering an add from a woman who stated she wanted a wealthy man. Makes you wonder what he was thinking, and how this Vixen Nanette, got away with what she did before the murder??
Come along and follow this trial, and crime from beginning to end, there are some great pictures. Once the book is picked up you can't wait to keep turning to the next riveting page.

I received this book through the Author, Caitlin Rother, and was not required to give a positive review.
