August 2021 Read of the Month

 My August 21 Read of the Month is Hell in the Heartland by Jax Miller .   Each summer I try and read at least one "true crime" genre title and this is my selection for summer 21.  August 2021 Read of the Month Jax Miller's book examines the 1999 murders of Danny and Kathy Freeman in rural Oklahoma. The crime also involves the disappearance of Ashley Freeman and her friend Lauria Bible. The book is well reviewed and there is a series on HBO Max based on this book (great another streaming subscription I will probably have to add). I am really enjoying the book and look forward to writing a review later this month.

I like these kind of books for
