Book Description: 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.
My Thoughts: This is the third and final book in the Cold Case Justice trilogy by Janice Cantore.
It seems that the governor's wife is the mastermind behind so many deeds and Abby needs proof to put her behind bars.
If, like me, you've had the pleasure of reading the last two books then you know that there are questions that need answers and answers are forth coming.
The investigation in the cold case of the murdered college student takes Abby and Luke to the town where Alyssa Rollins grew up.
In the first two books Abby and Luke had romance with other people. Now it seems that Luke and Abby are coming to "grips" with their own attraction to each other.
As the case becomes "hot" and as old "cold" secrets are unveiled the stakes become high as Abby with Luke's help solve the old mystery. But someone wants the case to stay hidden.
Hints are given and sometimes it seems that the reader knows "whodunit" but there is always a suspicion of doubt.
An explosive ending to a great cold case!
This was a grand read. The author does a great job of keeping the action and romance running and real.
