    I found this recently and decided to read it because I enjoy Karen Kingsbury novels. As I understand it this was from the beginning of her writing career. It held my interest, but there needed to be an update on the case. I had to Google to find out he suspect died in prison without a re-trial or resolution. I saw the case was featured on Unsolved Mysteries at one point. An extra chapter explaining this would of been more fulfilling.

    WARNING!!!!! Do not continue reading if you haven't finished this book. I only read half of it, and I can't help but wonder WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GUN!!!???? If Dan had shot his wife, he'd have had no time to hide the gun! The police were there in less than a minute. The police also ransacked and searched his house, so where the heck could he have possibly hidden the gun? Or two guns? It just doesn't make sense to me! Did none of these cops or detectives think of this? Since I haven't finished the WARNING!!!!! Do not continue reading if you haven't finished this book.

Since I haven't finished the book, maybe the answer is in there, but from what I've researched on the internet, I haven't found anything suggesting an answer. I hope somebody has some idea. Maybe he hid it in his car? He did say he was looking for something when she was shot. It's sad that he died in prison & that this case will probably never be solved. Part of me thinks he did kill her, or at least had help. Then another part of me thinks he's innocent.

    Another book by this author I read this week.Had I known beforehand that this is not a book where justice is done I would not even have begun reading. Yes I know life is not like that but if I can I prefer my true crime to end as well as it can be in those circumstances,meaning the killer gets his comeuppance. So when I began to understand where this book was going I admit to began speed reading.Speed reading means after I have finished the book I can answer all the questions if you would ask me Another book by this author I read this week.Had I known beforehand that this is not a book where justice is done I would not even have begun reading.

I am not going to rate this book because I do not feel I would be able to judge fairly just because I dislike these kind of stories.

    Just ok It was more like reading a documentary ban a suspense or mystery. It felt very stiff, exactly like reading a report of facts from a reporter with no bias or emotional connection. Love her other books but I’m glad she did not write more than 4 of these books.

    2.5 out of 5 stars. It was interesting reading a book by one of my favorite authors when I am so used to her writing a completely different genre. Knowing this book was a fictionalization of a true story was truly disturbing.

    Murder mystery isn’t really my thing but this is an interesting story. There were a few times that chunks of details were overly repeated but that’s forgivable —writing a book is hard!

    Was not hope filled Left me sad and angry that an innocent man did not get justice. I read with a heart filled with hope, but they were crushed in the end.

    I often do not like Kingsbury's books, but occasionally I do. I really enjoyed this one. I recommend reading this one.

    Great true crime mystery, but I didn't understand the ending.

    Ok I don't really know what to say that would be good about this book. It is not like any of the stories by Ms. Kingsbury that I have read. It is just not my kind of book.

    I enjoy true crime, and this was an interesting case. I do wish there was an update.

    Before Karen Kingsbury started writing Christian fiction, she was a newspaper reporter for the "Los Angeles Times" who covered prominent crimes. She wrote four true-crime books including "Final Vows." This is an incredible tale of Don & Carol Montecalvo who met and married while Don was incarcerated. After almost a decade of marriage, while Don is plagued by gambling debt and Carol has over half a million dollars of life insurance, Carol is murdered. The police say Don killed Carol, while Don Before Karen Kingsbury started writing Christian fiction, she was a newspaper reporter for the "Los Angeles Times" who covered prominent crimes.

After almost a decade of marriage, while Don is plagued by gambling debt and Carol has over half a million dollars of life insurance, Carol is murdered. The police say Don killed Carol, while Don argues that a robber is to blame. What truly happened the night Carol was shot to death? A fascinating tale, which reads like unbelievable fiction, that was also told on Unsolved Mysteries.

    Interesting book written early in author's career as a news reporter for the LA Times. BUT.....why did she not add an update on the case? Did the accused and convicted remain in prison? Did he ever file an appeal? She wrote an update on her career changes but no update on the book. Ridiculous!! The writing and story were 4 star but I gave it only three due to the incompleteness.....no update included.

    Pretty good I chose to give this book four stars,while it was true, it was not a riveting read. Ms Kingsbury does a great job of setting the scene, developing the characters and stating the facts. But, it was just too detailed. What this story, this very real murder did, was teach me some character flaws can never be overcome in the eyes of justice.

    Karen Kingsbury was my mom's favorite author, and do it interested me to read a true crime novel written by a well-known Christian fiction quiet. It was well written and interesting, but I'm ready to go back to my happy ending books. I did enjoy reading it as a former legal Secretary. Brought to mind all the frustrations of trying to help a client and not being able to.

    Final Vows Final Vows This was a good story, but I feel an additional chapter should have been added to update the ending and tell the reader the true ending. I'm curious as to what happened to the characters, since it is a true crime novel, that could have been written to satisfy me.

    True crime drama The documentary concerning the life and death of the victim, the investigations and murder trial relates the web of truth, fiction and inability of man to reach the clarity true justice requires even while earnestly working and searching for truth.

    good This was a good book, but the storyline was continually repeated over and over so it became repetitious. Unfortunately, the ending didn't give a wrap up either so that you know what the final outcome was.

    Hard book to read This book really left me wondering if Dan had indeed killed his wife or if Suzan had something to do with it. It's a sad story and I found myself wishing I could talk to Carol and prevent her from mistakes she had made.

    Good read after slow start I enjoyed the book immensely but it took me a while to get into it. At first I did not understand why all the background on all of the characters, but as the book progressed I saw the benefit. sad ending, but it depicts real life.

    This is one of Karen's first books - I have now read all four of them. They are books she wrote early in her career of writing novels. This I believe is a true story.

    Another good read I enjoy reading a novel based on a true story and this is a good one. All four of Karen's crime novels are worth reading.

    The ending comes very fast and the whole book is really drawn out.

    I love crime stories such as this. However, I still wonder what happened to Dan and if justice was ever served. I felt the ending of the book just left me hanging.
