I'm Glad I picked this book up

I was browsing through the bookstore when I came across this book.I am SO glad I bought it. Betty Lou Betts was Definatly one of those Black Widows that you just cant believe.The Author Did a Wonderful job telling this story.I enjoy books that tell about the murderer and wondered what in the world made this woman tick. Crazy? I think she was Crazy like a Fox! I look forward to reading more books by this author.. Thanks Ms.Pence..Keep em Coming!

This author is great

I love Irene Pence all of her books are fabulous . Ann Rule has always been my favorite true crime writer but I think Irene Pence is in first place now. She truly is excellent. All true crime fans need to read all of her books!

Men Beware

This book will make you wonder how a woman could do such cold,calculating murders and envolve her own children. Betty Could have done well for herself with her looks and personality as a young woman, but greed and a heart of steel led her down a different path. HARD TO PUT DOWN. P. Charlton

I was a Juror. I know this story

I was a Juror when Betty Beets was tried for the murder of Jimmy Don Beets. This book is the first accurate account I've read -- as I understand the story from the evidence presented at trial. The author obviously did extensive research (unlike the more sensational media reports). The book is a fast read and manages to tell about the murder without being unnecessarily gruesome or sensational.I had a friend save newspapers during the trial. When it was over and I had an opportunity to read the accounts, I was very unhappy with the way the trial was reported -- nothing inaccurate, just important legal points left out of the account. I was extremely upset by the media accounts of the trial in the weeks before the execution. Again, important legal points left out of the account. This book includes those important details that lead the reader through the trial as it was presented to the jury. The participants were well described and the evidence accurately portrayed (to the best of my memory). It would be entertaining if it wasn't a true story. This is a book that once opened, stays that way until the end.

buried memories

I picked up "Buried Memories" because I remembered the case about Betty Beets and thought it would be interesting. It more than kept my attention. It was really hard to put down. I just find it hard to believe that this woman could believe she could pull off these blatant murders and get away with it. I see that the author Irene Pence has written several other true crime books and I will want to read these, too, because I found this book very descriptive with the characters well-researched and believable.
