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 Luke uncovers a clue to the murder of Abby’s parents and his own 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?

My Thoughts: First of all I was given this book by the publisher but of course all opinions are my own. You probably already know this but I love a good mystery. So of course I was happy to read this murder mystery. I love that detective Abby Hart is a strong female character and the whole book makes me feel on the edge, the mystery is worth the read alone. However I can’t help but love the romance that’s between Abby and Luke and the suspense that it creates. This Janice Cantore book is a great read for before bed and can easily be read in chunks. If you like The Reluctant Detective or Critical Condition, you’ll love Burning Proof.
