Buried Cold Case Secrets is part of the Love Inspired Suspense line, is a different tone than what I’m used to. It’s a refreshing change. Written by Sami A. Abrams, Buried Cold Case Secrets has a little bit of something for everyone. Well, at least all thriller lovers.
When she was younger, Melanie Hutton and her best friend were kidnapped. Melanie survived; her friend did not. Now Melanie is in a race to find her friend’s remains – and her memories. Doing so might just help solve the murder case at hand.
Unfortunately, it is unlikely that the killer will just let Melanie investigate on her own. That is where Detective Jason Cooper comes into play, as he still holds out hope for solving his late sister’s case.
Buried Cold Case Secrets is a Christian suspense novel, meaning that it is overall fairly light on the worst parts that can come with an intense thriller. Sometimes it is nice to take that break, so I was happy to give Sami A. Abrams’ work a chance.
Melanie’s story is compelling and heartbreaking. It is so easy to feel for a woman who has been through so much trauma, including losing her memory and her best friend. It’s impossible not to root for her.
Jason’s appearance was a surprise complication, but one that worked well in terms of fleshing out the whole story. There is something so real and human about the characters, and I really loved that.
I’ll admit that I was a bit surprised to see that Buried Cold Case Secrets was a Christian fiction novel. I’ll have to make note that ‘Inspired’ is the term for that nowadays. This is good to know – either to help you find more, or steer clear of. This is why I love finding new industry terms!
