Catching Heat by Janice Cantore

Twenty-seven years after the deaths of Detective Abby Hart's parents, she's desperate to find the proof that will put the mastermind - the governor's wife - behind bars.  When she joins a newly formed task force and teams up with PI Luke Murphy, Abby is sent to San Luis Obispo to work the cold case of a murdered college student.  Realizing their investigations will bring them near the town where California's first lady, Alyssa Rollins, grew up, Abby decides to do a little digging of her own into the Triple Seven fire.

Luke is eager to help Abby Close the books on a case they both have personal stakes in.  But as she uncovers long-held secrets, Abby stumbles into an explosive situations, and Luke fears that her obsession may prove deadly.

Catching Heat is the third and final book in the Cold Case Justice series.  I would recommend reading the books in order.  I didn't and I definitely felt like I was missing something.  It took me a little longer to connect with the characters as well.  Once I got deeper into the book, I did enjoy it.  I just wish I would have read the entire series.

Janice Cantore is an excellent writer and being a former police officer adds to her great ability of writing suspense novels. I was not very familiar with this author before this book, but I will definitely be keeping my eye out for her work from now on.  Next time I'll just be sure to start from the beginning.

***Thanks to Tyndale Publishing for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
