Burning Proof by Janice Cantore

Burning Proof by Janice Cantore

After months of investigating the brutal homicide of a young girl, Detective Abby Hart finally has the evidence she needs. But when the arrest goes terribly wrong, Abby begins to doubt her future as a police officer. As she wrestles with conflicting emotions, old questions about the fire that took her parents’ lives come back to haunt her.

“There is proof.” PI Luke Murphy can’t stop thinking about what Abby’s former partner, Asa Foster, mumbled just before he died. When he uncovers a clue to the murder of Abby’s parents and his uncle, he’s reluctant to tell Abby, despite his growing feelings for the beautiful detective.

A decade-old abduction case brings Luke and Abby together, but will his secret tear them apart?

This is the second book in the Cold Case Justice series.  I would recommend reading the first book in the series “Drawing Fire”.  I read it and it still took me awhile to catch up to what was going on. 

This book started out a little slow.  There seemed to be a lot of different stories going on at once that didn’t make any sense to the book.  As the book progressed, the different stories started to merge into one.  So don’t give up.  It does all make sense in the end.  More information comes to light in the deaths of Abby’s parents and Luke’s uncle.  Abby and Luke continue to struggle with their attraction to each other. 

Abby is involved in a fatal shooting and has to come to terms with what God wants her to do.  Her commitment to God is tested throughout this time.  She also has to decide if staying engaged to Ethan is what is best. 

I would recommend this book.  But definitely read the first in the series.  I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

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