I am a lawyer involved in this case, and Kevin McMurray's book is factually accurate in every respect. Moreover, there is plenty of information in his work that did not appear in the media. Also, I can state with authority that the local media got about half the facts correct, if that much. If you're expecting a lurid condemnation of the girls with no reference to their backrounds, then this book is not for you. Stick with fiction. If you want to read a sensitive treatment of a very difficult case and trajedy, then buy and read this work. You might gain some insight into how something like this can happen. No catastrophe such as this, happens as a result of one cause. Many factors went into bringing about this event, and Kevin's effort is the only one so far that even tries to get to the heart of the matter. Finally, Court TV, Grace, Abrams and the rest are not places where reliable objective factual information can be obtained. Maybe at one time these outlets had value. All they do now is sensationalize and add noise to the situation. They contribute nothing of value to the discussion. If you want to know what actually happened read this book.

The story of two teenage girls committing a double homicide makes an interesting story in itself. But when one considers the fact that the teens were more than friends and their atypical family backgrounds, this has the potential to be a very interesting read. Though some readers seem to believe this book contradicts media sources of the time, generally accepted facts now seem to suggest this book to be a truthful source.

When Holly Harvey and Sandy Ketchum fatally stabbed Holly's grandparents in a seemingly drug induced rage, it was a sensational news event of the most unforunate circumstances. Some might point to the poor family structures of the two girls that allowed them to partake in such an act. While the author does not directly spell out the motive as some readers might want, the motivation is directly implied throughout the book. I think the average reader could easily see this.

My one objection with the book is the poor formatting of the final chapters. In a interview via letter with Sandy Ketchum, the author list all the questions first, before listing all the answers together. So if the reader wants to know what Sandy is talking about, he/she has to flip back a few page to rediscover the question. Aside from this somewhat aggrivating flaw, I found this book hard to put down.

"If You Really Loved Me" was a somewhat disappointing read. While the true crime story itself was somewhat unusual (two teenage girls kill the grandparents of one girl so that they can continue their lesbian relationship)and certainly should have provided an interesting and in-depth read, something was missing from the story. The author, Kevin McMurray, does provide some background information on the victims, Carl and Sarah Collier, but mainly over the course of a page or two. I found similar treatment on the background of the two girls, Holly Harvey and Sandy Ketchum. Maybe it was this skimming that caused the book to feel so lightweight, but I felt that McMurray really cheated the reader, and the Colliers, by providing such skimpy detail. We can understand that together the two girls made an explosive combination, but what exactly drove them to kill?

An additional issue I had with this book was Mr. McMurray's seeming sympathy toward Ms. Harvey and Ms. Ketchum about midway through the book. Reading of such gruesome murders, and committed against the people that cared for and reared Ms. Harvey for much of her life, I had absolutely no sympathy for either teen girl and I found it angering that Mr. McMurray seemed to have more for them than for the people they killed, or even the Colliers' son.

All in all, what could have been an interesting read into the dark and depraved minds of two teenage girls, and their violent outcomes, was instead more like a People magazine read. Disappointing.

This book does not offer anything from the eyes of Holly Harvey or Sandy Ketchum. Surely these two had strong feelings for each other, and there really didn't seem to be any good reason for why they were separated in the first place. The book fails to mention that girls can fall in love with girls and it has nothing to do with not having boyfriends, or showing signs of trouble. They were 16 and 15 years old and that is a typical age for teens to date, have sex, smoke or drink. I think that if the book would include the relationship from the girls' perspective, the reader woulld be more likely to see what may have been going through their minds. I did not think it was right to separate them just because their relationship was a lesbian one. Does that mean the grandparents deserved to die? - NO!! There is no excuse for the heinous crime they committed. I think that the reader should be given an opportunity to get a good understanding of the people who are involved, and I do not feel that this was achieved in this one-sided view of the crime.
