Catching Heat is book three (the conclusion) of Janice Cantore's Cold Case Justice series. Catching Heat continues and wraps up the story of Abby and Luke. The book description reads:
"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 investigation will bring them near the town where 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 situation, and Luke fears that her obsession may prove deadly."
I really enjoyed Catching Heat and the entire Cold Case Justice series. Janice Cantore has quickly become one of my favorite inspirational/police procedural fiction writers. Her experience as a real-life police officer lends great credibility to her writing and it shows through in both her plots and in her characters. There are plenty of twists and turns in this story, and it's anything but predictable! Catching Heat was an exciting and satisfying conclusion to this series, and I'm looking forward to reading her next series! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys good Christian suspense or police procedurals.
