Book Description: 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?
My Thoughts: After reading Janice Cantor's first book, Drawing Fire, in the Cold Case Justice series I was anxiously awaiting this second book, Burning Proof.
I love that the book cover to this book kind.of matches the book cover of the first book . . . Abby is depicted as the same person on both covers but with different scenarios. Oh, and Luke Murphy, PI is in both books too.
Drawing Fire is a different story than Burning Proof . . . stand alone reads.
When Abby becomes discouraged when she arrests the culprit to the homicide that she's been working on for months and then it all goes horribly down hill. She wonders if the should even be a police officer.
Ahh, I love Luke. He encourages Abby to continue and tells her, "There is proof."
Every woman needs a man like Luke to encourage her and help her get going.
There are secrets that come to light as the case begins to unravel. It seems that Abby and Luke need to trust each other more.
I enjoyed this fast paced, easy to read, not overly complicated story.
