A brief summary from Tyndale:
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.
If you love figuring out mysteries, especially those that have been cold for quite a few years, than Janice Cantore’s Catching Heat is the book for you!
Determined to solve the mystery of who killed her parents in a devastating fire, Detective Abby Hart follows every lead, big or small, that is sent her way. Twenty-seven years is a long time for a case to go unsolved, especially when it involves her beloved parents. Abby teams up with PI Luke Murphy, who also has personal stakes in this cold case, and together they work to solve what happened those many years ago. But when leads grow colder and threats start raining down, will Abby & Luke be able to find out what exactly happened?
Catching Heat is the third and final book in the Cold Case Justice series, but works great as a stand-alone. Having not read the previous two books, I didn’t have any trouble following along with the characters or story line. I really enjoyed how suspenseful Catching Heat was. I’m not normally prone to reading or watching cold cases files, or really anything about detectives or solving mysteries, but I found myself really intrigued while reading Catching Heat. Definitely intrigued enough that I’ve added the first two books in the series, Drawing Fire and Burning Proof, to my TBR list!
