Greetings! Welcome to our stop at the blog tour for True Crime Stories by Romeo Vitelli. This tour is hosted by the lovely Jen @ Travelling Pages Tours.
Gosh, this was a lot of fun. No, neither me or my Mommy are psychopaths for saying this, but the way that Romeo Vitelli, a fellow, but way more successful blogger than us, presented these stories, were highly entertaining. Some people are very much like cats – they can keep you hooked and focused until the paunch.
My Mommy loves true crime, hence the request for reading this story collection. Quite a few of these stories she’s read before, but adding a few new ones to her true crime knowledge archives, sure was a bonus. We love seeing the description ‘Volume 1’ on the cover page and hope the next instalment will be just riveting.
* Content Warning: Some of the stories are quite graphic and acts of cannibalism are described in gruesome (put still true to the facts) details. Not that cannibalism bothers cats at all, but perhaps this book might not be for the faint of heart.
