Danielle’s Review

Buried Cold Case Secrets by Sami A. Abrams is a Love Inspired Cold Case novel. Melanie Hutton returns to her hometown, now a forensic anthropologist, in an attempt to regain her lost memories. Jason Cooper hasn’t spoken to Melanie since she left his sister to die at the hands of the man who kidnapped the two girls when they were teens. However, when Melanie’s life is in danger, he cannot let his sister’s best friend face the danger alone.

I enjoyed this story! And the author made the case for several suspects so that I couldn’t figure out the actual bad guy until the end. What I enjoyed most about the story was the author’s ability to write about horrible crimes—Melanie kidnapped as a teen, the exhumation of bones, and other cold case type suspenseful action—in a way that didn’t give a person nightmares. It was just the right amount of suspense and a sweet romance mixed right in.

Sami A. Abrams is a debut novelist and I’m looking forward to reading many more of her books in the future.
