"Finished your book today. I really liked it.
I am sorry the wife was not prosecuted. She will get hers one day.
Congratulations on your AWARDS!
*Mary Helen Cuellar
You are an amazing writer! Finished your book while I was out of town. I realy couldn't put the book down once I started reading it. Your book reached out and grabbed my heart, mind and soul while reading it. I felt so bad for you and your family, especially the father of your children for the way he was brutally murdered. Justice was found mostly through your efforts. You write cogently ~clearly, logically, and convincing~ with immense depth of feeling, perception and description.
Congratulations on your Book of the Year Winner Award and the NIEA Finalist Award. You deserved both!
Wow, I wasn't expecting that good of a story.
I have to thank you for my first experience with a book that I truly couldn't put down. I was impressed with Ted Dekker's ability to turn a twist, but you raised the bar. An interesting story and your depiction was fascinating reading.
I can't imagine the hurt you and your family went and still are going through. I have lost love ones, but not by murder. I don't know if I would have the strength to seek justice and fight the level you did.
I started the book Tuesday morning and carried it around the ranch all day reading between my daily tasks. I truly couldn't stop reading. That night I stopped right after Debbie received probation. I honestly had trouble sleeping worrying about her still running around Texas. I was relieved to find out she finally got put in prison. Praying justice will finally come to Lou Ann.
I don't normally offer a guest post to my blog, but being so impressed with the book. I would post an entry by you to promote the book. God bless, Jim

* Sherrie Odom:
"I absolutely loved this book!
There are spine-chilling episodes in "Fighting the Devil" that will create both terror and excitement in readers! I thought the book was very fascinating, intense and downright scary at times. Felt like I was right there with the author on her journey.
I highly recommend it.
* Sharon Mount
Jeannie, I have finished reading your book, but I can't stop thinking about you, your family and what you went through.
I pray that someday everyone involved in this horrible murder will be brought to justice and you and your children will have some closure.
Congratulations on the awards for your book. You deserve them. God Bless you and your family.
* Pamela Hobbs
I found your book intelligently written.
I recommended it to everyone I know.
* Janet Throneberry
I purchased "Fighting The Devil" at a very busy time.
Still, I could not put it down.
The True Crime genre has SO many choices, but this one I loved for its crisp language and attention to detail. Thanks for letting the story tell the story! In fact, I felt nauseated at times, whenever reading the physical/medical facts. That's when I knew Jeannie Walker had done a fantastic job!
* Beth Van Houten
I know I am late with my review on your book, but I enjoyed reading it.
I learned something new about the justice system. I enjoyed seeing photos of Jake, he was my cousin, and a good person.
It was interesting for me to read a book about memories from my childhood. I remember the letters, and Becky not liking her step-mother. Anyway, I will keep you both in my prayers and pray that justice will be done. Again, a very good book!

* Lois Cross
It is very well written. It certainly shows the other side of the world what happens in true life. While some of the world is going along smoothly, there are others of us who are having to deal with tragedy on every side. Thank goodness for people like Jeannie Walker who won't let bad people get away with what they are doing.
* Keith Wilson
I have read the book. It is well written. Jeannie became a sleuth to help solve the murder. The book does have both a frustrating and sad ending. The Texas millionaire's widow was never charged for her part in the crime even though all parties involved knew there was a conspiracy between the widow and the bookkeeper in the murder. The bookkeeper was arrested, tried and convicted for the murder. But, it is still an open murder case. The reviews have been very positive. After reading the book, I have just one thing to say, "Don't make Jeannie mad."
* Paul & Sandra Everhart
"This is a very intense story. In reading this book I found many faults of the criminal justice system. Being a criminal justice major and teaching it in college, there is strong evidence that justice is not being served to the innocent." Paul Everhart
* Kevin Barry
"I thought the book was fantastic!"
* Linda Webb
I read the book and really enjoyed the easy reading. Contents kept me interested as I lived in the area, and could relay to the characters and the area that it occurred.
Thanks Jeannie for sharing one of your stories.
I loved the book!
* Barbara Stewart
After I read your book, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I purchased another one to give to my friend as a gift. Thank you for letting me put your book into my beauty shop so that others can purchase it and enjoy it as much as I did. I am so glad I met you and we are friends. I highly recommend the book to everyone who loves reading good books.
* Misty Huffman
I read this book from cover to cover in two days and am still sleeping with the lights on.
It is very well written in a style and voice that is both clear, concise, and pleasing. The tragic facts of this story are unnerving and leave one deeply troubled that such horrific events took place. I highly recommend this book.
