Burning Proof

This book by Janice Cantore is the only one I have not been able to get into. I read this book over the time of 4 months and still cannot get through twenty pages without having to put the book down.

Don't get me wrong. I love Janice's books. As soon as I open to the first page, I am riveted on the spot until the last page. I love the thrill of reading and being in the passenger of the action. In those pages, I'm not a normal person but a witness to a homicide case or a civilian that is taking in all that is happening.

This book just didn't work out for me. The summary of the book seemed interesting to me:

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?
