I finished reading A Person of Interest by Ernest Hill last night before I found myself going to sleep. I will admit up front is wasn't one of my favorite books. I am not even sure how it ended up on my TBR (to be read) list. But I started it and kept wading my way through it. Until the end. And I hated the ending.
The book is about a recently widowed lady, Felicia, who moves back home to care for her elderly mother. Her mother lives in a house directly across the street from Luther Jackson and his wife and child. Felicia was deeply in love with Luther at one time and he fell in love with another woman, who became his wife and the mother of his only son. The book begins with Felicia being awakened by a ruckus in the street at Luther's house. His wife and child have been murdered and set afire and Luther is the main suspect. Felicia makes it her business to prove that he didn't do it. I won't give away the ending. But I will tell you that I like things to be wrapped up in a good way. I know that isn't how life happens but that is how I like it. And this book ends crazy. You will have to read it to see who killed his family and if Felicia gets 'her' man.
