Drawing Fire by Janice Cantore

One case from her past defines homicide detective Abby Hart.

With a possible serial killer stalking elderly women in Long Beach, California, Abby’s best lead is Luke Murphy, an irritating private investigator who saw a suspect flee the scene of the latest homicide. When Abby discovers that the most recent victim is related to the governor, she’s anxious to talk to him about a cold case that’s personal to her—one Luke is interested in as well.

As she learns more about the restaurant fire that took her parents’ lives years ago, Abby discovers why Luke is so invested in finding the ones responsible. The more they uncover, though, the more questions they have. Can Abby find peace without having all the answers?

There are several different stories going on at the same time in this book.  At times it took me a minute to switch gears.  By the end of the book you realize that they are all related in some way. 

I enjoyed the characters in the book.  Abby is a driven homicide detective who wants justice for the murdered victim.  Her background is what has helped her become a detective so early in her police career.  Luke is a private investigator specializing in missing persons.  He is also interested in the fire that took Abby’s parents lives.  His uncle was also killed in the fire.

What I disliked about the book is there was really no closure at the end of the book.  A lot of questions were answered.  But the story continues into the next book.  For this reason I am going to give it one less star than I would if there was an ending.

I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way.
