Catching Heat by Janice Cantore

Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord.                   -Romans 12:19

 So I have been writing so many reviews and reading so many books that I wanted this introduction to be short and sweet. Here is my latest " Must Read" .
Catching Heat by Janice Cantore. It is the last book in the Cold Case Justice Series and it is the explosive conclusion to Detective Abby Hart's search for justice for her murdered parents.

In Catching Heat , Detective Abby Hart is frustrated because she has finally found a vital piece of  her puzzle, A clue to who murdered her parents and burnt down their restaurant ( aka The Triple Seven Murder ) The problem was... it just slipped right through her fingers. Abby had arrested Kelsey Cox after Kelsey admitted to having a part in the crime but once She got Kelsey in court, Kelsey would not testify that she had anything to do with it. She just implied that she had a part in killing her father but would not say anything about the Triple Seven murders. Abby is outraged, She feels like she was so close and it was ripped away from her. but she tries to take her mind off of it by joining her friends Robert Woods ( Woody) and P.I. Luke Murphy on a special task force that investigates cold cases (cases that were never solved). The first case they are given is for a college girl who went missing years ago. They have been granted access to the suspect list but it has been so long that they are worried that the trail has gotten so cold that they will not be able to find any answers but they start with the two main suspects, Harkin and Considine.  While they are investigating the two suspects and the events surrounding the disappearance, Abby discovers a lead about the person she believes orchestrated her parents deaths. She thinks that they lived near where the case took them so she decides to investigate. But when Luke finds out that she went by herself to investigate her "supposed" lead, he is furious! Not only was it reckless to go alone into the wrong side of town but her lead is too shaky, and he honestly believes that it is no a lead at all.  When they find out that Kelsey escaped her prison transport, Luke and Woody decide that Abby is not to look into her lead unless one of them is with her because they are worried that Kelsey may try to get revenge. Abby feels like Woody and Luke are treating her like a child so she decides to investigate on her own but more discreetly, Unfortunately it starts consuming her life and she lets it distract her from the missing girl case .When that lack of focus causing Abby and Woody to be put in the middle of a dangerous situation, Will they be able to escape unharmed or will Abby mistake cost one or both of them their lives?
Find out by reading this exciting conclusion to the Cold Case Justice Series! 

What did I like about the book? 
So this is the third book in the Cold Case Justice series and I think that it was the perfect conclusion to the series. I would recommend reading the first two books in the series first so that you understand the plot better but the book could also be read as a stand alone.  Throughout the series you get to see Abby work through  feelings of revenge, loneliness, hurt, loss and love but even though she stumbled a few times, She was able to pick herself back up because she would remember that vengeance was the Lord's job and that one day justice would be served.  One of my favorite things about the series was the friendship that Woody, Luke and Abby had. That it did not matter the time, place or situation, they always had each others back.
 Overall I give the book 5 out of 5 Stars ***** and the Series gets 7 out of 5 Stars *******.
