Publisher's 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.

    Abby Hart has a keen sense of justice as she works cold cases. However, the one that plagues her most is personal. Can she and PI Luke Murphy prove the governor's wife was behind the fire that killed Abby's parents and the restaurant cook twenty-seven years ago?

    Janice Cantore shows her knowledge of humanity in Catching Heat. Cantore's various characters, from police to homeless people in a camp to political leaders to "grunts," are multi-dimensional. Showing various facets of her character's personalities allows the characters to control the story, creating twists and turns with their unpredictable actions. As the reader, I feared along with Luke for Abby's ultimate sanity and wondered how wise it was for her to pursue so personal a case.

    One thing I was thankful for, was enough back story that I wasn't lost as I had read book one, but not book two. Book three picked up well, and was tightly written.

    Very engrossing! Recommended for those who like police procedurals and romantic suspense.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and Bookfun. I have voluntarily left my own, unbiased review.

    Catching Heat by author Janice Cantore is the last book in her Cold Case Justice series. Just like the other books, this one is action packed and full of suspense, mystery, and twists. Faith is not forgotten in this Christian novel either. It is a well thought, organized, and written book. The author has a great way of taking readers right into the book. Her characters are well defined right down to their flaws. The dialog is authentic and plentiful. Questions posed throughout the book give readers even more to think about.

    This is the story of Detective Abby Hart, who has been searching for many years for proof that the governor's wife was behind the death of her parents. Finally after 27 years Abby gets a lead even though she is working on another case.

    Private Investigator Luke is back and works to help the FBI to sollve cold cases. Luke has brought Abby's old training officer, Woody, in to help as well as Abby. There is espionage, adventure, mystery, murder, action, romance, twists and turns.

    The novel was so fast-paced and exciting. I was invested within the first few pages. It is a fast paced page turner. As they start their cases things get very interesting. Within pages one case, becomes two for the trio of investigators. Quickly two cases became three and they all crashed down on Abby, Luke, and Woody.

    This is an excellent mystery. The author understands police and law enforcement as she is retired from it. Her descriptions are first hand. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys Christian Mystery Suspense. This would make a great book for discussion. You will want to talk to someone as you read this page turner of a book.

    I rated it 5 out of 5 stars. I was given the book by Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and here is my honest review.

    Catching Heat by Janice Cantore is the dramatic conclusion to the Cold Case Justice seriesDrawing Fire and Burning Proof. Janice Cantores experience as a police detective adds realism and a unique perspective to the plots.

    Detective Abby Hart and P.I. Luke Murphy team up on a newly formed task force to solve the cold case of a murdered co-ed. With the help of Robert Woods, Woody, a retired police officer, they travel to San Luis Obispo to investigate. Their proximity to the hometown of Californias First Lady is a bonus opportunity to find proof/information on the person that they suspect is involved in the Triple Seven fire 27 years agothe fire that caused her parents and Lukes uncles deaths.

    Intriguing characters, exciting twists and turns with non-stop action deliver a satisfying ending to a riveting series. Suspense coupled with romance guarantee a worthwhile read. I highly recommend this novel that I received through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.

    Catching Heat was hot, hot, hot. It took me a short time to catch on to the plot but once I did, I couldn't put it down. The characters were very interesting, the plot was loaded and I was intrigued throughout. Detective Abby Hart with years of police experience, was put on a task force to solve a cold case murder. On the force with her is PI Luke Murphy. They have been friends for a while and both have an unsolved cold case murder in common. Abby's parents and Luke's uncle were all killed and she is obsessed with the Triple Seven fire. The cold case they are assigned to involves the murder of a high school student. As they delve into this case they are also asked to help look for a fugitive that has been hiding for years after murdering his two sons and attempting to murder his wife. Working on these two cases, with the Triple Seven in the backs of their minds, brings some interesting witnesses along with suspense and danger. The Governor and First Lady are deep into Abby's suspicions as being involved in the Triple Seven murders and she's determined to prove it somehow. With all three of these cases to look into, how will they all be solved, or will they?

    I get great enjoyment in reading these books by Janice Cantore. Having worked as a police officer for over twenty two years, she can write with knowledge that only her background experience brings.

    I received this book through Bookfun and was not required to write a review, positive or otherwise.

    Catching Heat" is the explosive finale of Janice Cantore's "Cold Case Justice" series. The series is best appreciated if read in order as there is an underlying cold case woven into the other cold cases in each of the three novels.

    The cold case that brings two of the protagonists, PI Luke Murphy and Detective Abby Hart, together is the death of his uncle and murder of her parents, and their restaurant being set afire to cover it up occurred more than two decades earlier. Abby and Luke meet in the first novel and determine to work on it together, even as they pursue their current cold cases.

    In this final novel in the series, Luke is part of a task for the FBI to help solve cold cases. He has brought Woody, Abby's training officer out of retirement, and Abby, on leave from Long Beach PD, into the task force. They are on two interesting cases, the primary one being in San Luis Obispo, where a young woman had disappeared twenty years prior, her body found fifteen years later, but her killer(s) never discovered. The other has them searching several vineyards in that area for a man who killed his children, attempted to kill his wife, and set their house on fire. His wife survived with many ongoing medical challenges. She has been single-mindedly obsessed with finding him for more than ten years, convinced he is working under a different identity in a business that fascinated him.

    The research into their own cold case has threads that can be researched while they are in San Luis Obispo. Some strands were revealed by a now-retired journalist who is sharing the information with Abby as a friend; he had been a journalist when the fire and murders occurred. All three cases converge on Woody, Abby, and Luke at once, with consequences far more deadly than they could have anticipated.

    The author, a retired Long Beach police officer, understands police and FBI procedures as well as how complex and far-reaching some crimes can be. She has a gift for dialog, actions, and faith that reveal the essence of each character. I like Abby the most; Woody and Luke round out the very likable trio of protagonists. They work well together and complement each other's personalities. Other characters are defined as suits their roles, again using dialog, actions and thoughts to demonstrate their personalities.

    The plot is complex, with many long, heart-pounding moments; the last third of the book is high energy and suspense. It was a challenge to determine who all the bad guys might be for all of the cases. The novel was so absorbing, fast-paced and exciting, I didn't take the time to think in any depth who the bad guys were. I do like how the author put this novel and series together. While I'm sorry to leave behind this wonderful cold case team, I am very satisfied with how this novel and the series wraps up. I especially appreciated the prayers and spiritual development of the characters, as it is a blessing to this reader to see how people live out their faith during trying times. I highly recommend Catching Heat" to anyone who likes Christian intrigue and suspense with a potential for romance; what a great series this is!

    From a grateful heart: I was given the book by Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and here is my honest review.
