What writer doesn’t grow up reading every chance they get? That would be me.

Until my thirties, I hated to read. Then someone told me about Terri Blackstock, and I decided to give her books a try. I was hooked. I guess there’s something to finding the right genre. Romantic Suspense is it for me. Of course, that makes sense. I love CSI, NCIS, and Criminal Minds. Over the years, I have expanded my taste, but there’s just something about suspense that keeps me coming back.

A little over five years ago, I decided to start checking off some of the items on my bucket list. I learned how to rock climb and got my scuba certification, among other things. When I got to the item, writing a novel, I sat down and pounded it out. Check the box; I was done. Wrong. God had other plans and placed some amazing people in my life.

One of those plans was attending MurderCon, a conference for writers where they learn from experts about, you guessed it…murder. Actually, it’s about police procedures, crime scene analysis…the list goes on and on. One of the workshops I attended was with a forensic anthropologist, and the idea for Melanie Hutton and Buried Cold Case Secrets was born.

I loved writing Melanie’s story. She’s a fighter and refuses to let anything stand in her way, including the man, Jason Cooper, who blames her for her best friend’s death. Jason holds on to the past and his hatred toward Melanie, but he soon learns that if he puts aside his assumptions and listens, he’ll discover the truth about the day his sister died. Letting go of his anger and blame is tough for Jason, but when he does, he finds the life he’s always wanted.

I hope you enjoy reading Melanie and Jason’s story as much as I did writing it.

My Thoughts

Buried Cold Case Secrets is the debut Love Inspired Suspense book that is written by  Sami A. Abrams. This is a book that you will not want to miss. Once I started it - I could not put it down. If you are not familiar with Love Inspired Suspense it is a series that is published by Harlequin, and it's the Christian Line. You can count on Faith and Suspense that is interwoven together. 

Our main characters are Melanie Hutton and Jason Cooper. Melanie was abducted with her best friend, Allison. Allison's brother, Jason blames Melanie for his sisters death. What Jason is having a hard time understanding is that Melanie does not remember much about the incident. She has now obtained a job as a forensic anthropologist back in town and her appearance has caused an uproar. Some still blame her and others hate the way she was shunned by her parents after the ordeal. Jason is working with law enforcement and they both want to solve the case together. That is unless the killer gets ahold of them first. They both need to forgive each other to move forward. 

There is a lot of non stop action. I felt that when my heart stopped beating so rapidly another scene unfolded and my adrenaline started back up again. Carve out time to read this book. You will want to finish it in one sitting. 

A special thank you to the author and the publisher for a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
