"Person of Interest" by Debby Giusti

About this book:

  While babysitting a young servicewoman's infant, Natalie Frazier hears a murder in the neighboring army duplex. Convinced her former commander is behind the crime, the ex-soldier bolts with the baby. But who will believe her story? Army investigator Everett Kohl deals only with the facts, but this time his gut instincts can't be denied. Is the attractive Natalie a cunning killer, as his ranking officers believe, or an innocent victim? Ordered to bring her in, Everett has a decision to make. Helping her could cost him his job…but not protecting Natalie and the baby could get all of them killed…

My personal Rating-

While I did like the main characters’ names, I found some parts to be unrealistic or have plot holes. To be even more honest, I was expecting Natalie to be tougher because of her past and not scream so much. This suspense book just wasn’t my cup of tea.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
