This is absolutely delightful fluff, and if you like the podcast My Favorite Murder, you will like this book. It’s like sitting down and having a cup of coffee with Georgia and Karen. Their stories and essays are loosely grouped into sections based on advice and catchphrases that have come out of the podcast, like “Stay Out of the Forest,” and “You’re in a Cult, Call Your Dad.” Mostly, though, it’s just an excuse for them to ramble (which they are oh so good at) and go a little deeper into stories they’ve touched on in podcast episodes.
The essays cover their personal history (along with some adorable childhood photos), their history as friends, and the history of the podcast. The writing is gracious and funny and self-aware, and I found myself teary at some points and cackling and reading choice bits out loud to my husband at other points.
I feel like this review is too short, but I don’t have much else to say! You wouldn’t think a book with ‘murder’ in the title would be fun, but it is. The writing is fun and conversational, the topics are varied, and while there wasn’t a lot to it, I enjoyed it greatly. But I love the podcast, so there wasn’t ever much doubt of that.
