#TBRtemptation post 5! This novelization is based on a real-life multiple murder by a con man who preyed on widows, a story that's haunted Phillips for 4 decades. The crime happened in a tiny West Virginia community not far from where she grew up. Chicago, 1931. Assit Eicher, mother of 3, gets seductive letters from chivalrous Harry Powers. Weeks later, the family is dead. Journalist Emily Thornhill tackles the case. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

This was dramatic, and poignant, and sad, but uplifting. So many emotions!! This has been lingering on my TBR for so long because the cover didn't appeal to me. I'm SO glad I finally got to this. Beautifully written and haunting.

Grrrr, this book is getting really good but I have to go back to work. First world problems.

AWahle I feel ya! I'm having the same problem today. Just remember: job = book money. 📚💰 3y
BeckaroniAndCheese @AWahle Ha! Job = mortgage payment, car payment, groceries, and kid activities/sports. If job = book money, I'd be working MUCH harder 😉 3y
AWahle @BeckaroniAndCheese Hopefully there's a few dollars left for books! 😉 My sister never understood that I wanted more books over new clothes, so that shows where my priorities are. 3y
BeckaroniAndCheese @AWahle If/when there isn't money left over, there's always the library! 🙏🏻📚 3y
AWahle @BeckaroniAndCheese I blame the library for my huge TBR pile. I keep going to Half Price, but I just brought home 8 more library books... 3y
