Jennifer Harrison5 Stars Out Of 5Burning Heat Janice CantoreNovember 21, 2016Jennifer HarrisonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Once again Janice Cantore did not disappoint. This book was exciting, suspenseful and had a thread of Christian themes throughout the story. It continues the story of Abby Hart and a 10 year old cold-case abduction.
Mrs ARS4 Stars Out Of 5Burning QuestionsSeptember 9, 2016Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Janice Cantore continues her Cold Case Justice series with Burning Proof as PI Luke and his now partner retired cop Woody, are taking care of the files and evidence of late Asa Fosters (Abbys former partner), that concerns the murder of Abbys parents and Lukes uncle. Choosing not to let Abby know what they found, Luke and Woody have also signed up to work with the newly formed Cold Case Squad. Their first unofficial assignment involves a young woman who was kidnapped and brutally assaulted yet escaped and lived to tell about it. Her attacker, ten years later has yet to be found.
Abby has had a crushing blow as she had to shoot a victims father in self-defense and she is having a rather hard time coping. Not only with the fallout of the shooting, but also about the facts that she and Luke uncovered from the previous book. Abby deciding to take a break from police work goes to reconnect with her aunt and fianc Ethan.
Luke fills guilty about keeping secrets from Abby about the cold case that has affected them both and he is also trying to get over his attraction for her. Luke and Abby are not together through most of this book and there was an introduction of a new love interest that has me a little concerned (I am rooting for Abby and Luke to get together). Author Cantore does a splendid job of keeping the book moving for the major story arc cold case and the new one that Luke, Woody, and eventually Abby (who is brought in later) need to solve before the statute of limitations is up.
I look forward to the third installment. I received a copy of this book for an honest review through The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.
Cindy J5 Stars Out Of 5Riveting suspense with a bit of romanceAugust 29, 2016Cindy JQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Burning Proof by Janice Cantore opens with Long Beach Detective Abby Hart and her new partner Bill Roper wrapping up a homicide case. Unfortunately an individual involved in the case is shot by Abby (not a spoiler, but you need to read the story for the details). Abby has to work through the emotions resulting from the shooting, and a major theme of the story is that process. During her time away from the police department, she re-evaluates many areas of her life, including looking at the foundation on which she has built her life. I loved following her search, seeing the truths she uncovered, and watching her use what she learned to help others. Also while on leave, she returns to her hometown where her fianc Ethan is helping build a church. Both are Christians, but they dont have much in common and, in my opinion, are totally wrong for each other.
Luke Murphy is a private investigator who has been invited by the FBI to join a task force investigating cold cases. While waiting for the task force to become official, he takes on a cold case involving a serial rapist and killer who seems to have disappeared. His contact person is Faye Fallon who happens to be beautiful, intelligent, and genuinely nice. Although Luke is attracted to Abby, he also knows Abby is engaged to Ethan so Luke works hard to keep the right thoughts about and attitude with Abby. When Faye indicates an interest in Luke beyond the case, Luke decides he should explore the relationship. While I sincerely appreciate Luke honoring Abbys commitment to Ethan, I was frustrated when he agreed to go out with Faye.
Burning Proof picks up a couple of months after the end of Drawing Fire (book one), so I would highly recommend you read the stories in order if you plan to read both. Within the first 50 or so pages of the second book is a brief summary of events in book one and includes spoilers. The common thread running through both books is the cold case surrounding the death of Abbys parents 27 years ago. Although that case is still unsolved at the end of book two, more has been uncovered than was revealed in book one. Both are fabulous books, but I do believe you could read either book without it being necessary to read the other. The prominent mystery in Burning Proof is resolved satisfactorily. I loved this story and would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspense with a bit of romantic undertones. This one is going on my keeper shelf.
I received a copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
jacquiRIllinoisAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Burning ProofAugust 15, 2016jacquiRIllinoisAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Burning Proof continues the highly suspenseful Cold Case Justice series by retired Long Beach police officer, Janice Cantore. Though a novel in the series, the work can easily be a stand-alone title since previous action and characters are well-referenced. Cantore gives details that keep the first-time reader in the loop. Cantores novels immediately hook the readers and keep them riveted to the non-stop action.
Detective Abby Hart works to solve cold cases while her own perplexing cold case continually surfaces to haunt her. A fire at her parents restaurant took their lives, leaving questions and emotional upheaval that threaten her existence. Always on her mind, the unresolved case keeps peace and relationships on hold.
PI Luke Murphy is also involved in that unresolved case, as his uncle also perished in the fire. Lukes attraction to Abby makes him want to protect her, and he hesitates to tell her a clue that he uncovers. He also keeps his distance since she is dating another man.
A decade-old abduction case draws Abby and Luke together in the investigation. Faye Fallon, a crime blog writer, hires Luke and his partner, Woody, a retired cop, to look into the case with fresh eyes. Fallon, whose husband was killed in action and had planned to join the sheriffs department after enlistment, immediately attracts Lukes interest. She is beautiful, intelligent, and compassionate. His attraction to her complicates matters with his long-standing feelings for Abby.
Another excellent, page-turner that I highly recommend. Cantores books do not disappoint. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.
Mercia5 Stars Out Of 5Burning proofAugust 5, 2016MerciaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Great suspense with a hint of a brewing love story. It shows that justice, however long it takes, will prevail. My beef with the series is having to read two long books without getting to a conclusion. That is not sitting well with me. Maybe I'd be more forgiving if the next one is available immediately. One has to wait for many months on end for the next episode. I must confess though that patience is not one of my natural gifts! I really hope the one coming in September is the last one in the series...
