Catching Heat by Janice Cantore
This is the third in the series and I'm guessing the last.
Abby has been searching for hard evidence to who killed her parents 28 years ago. At times, she has let the search consume her and become her driving force. She threatens to allow that to happen in this book as well, but when confronted with someone who has allowed obsession with a situation to consume her and eat her, Abby is able to take a step back.
In the end of course, there is mostly closure, but the murderer is never charged for that crime. The thing that stuck out to me in the last few chapters of this book was the theme of trust.
Being able to trust that God is a God of justice and even if justice is not taken on this earth, justice will prevail. While I'm not investigating a crime scene, this can be so true in my life when things don't go my way as I wish. God can be trusted and He sees the bigger picture. He knows what I really need and I need to let Him lead me that way.
A quote from the book:
"Just that I didn't get what I wanted, but I guess I got what I needed."
That is how it works when we trust God and leave it all in His hands.
I really enjoyed this book again. There was riveting parts which you knew would work out because it's a fiction book, but did keep you turning pages waiting to see exactly how.
