Burning Caine: A Slow Burn Romantic Suspense Mystery (Caine & Ferraro Book 1) by Janet Oppedisano
There’s a truth smoldering behind all the lies. And it’s about to ignite…
I used to be a rising star in the FBI’s Art Crimes unit. Now I’m stuck in my tiny Michigan hometown, working as a bored-out-of-my-skull insurance adjuster. Until, finally, an assignment that’s right up my alley—a claim for a million-dollar painting damaged in a fatal house fire.
From the get-go, something’s not adding up. The police are blowing it off. My boss is dropping broad hints that he wants the case wrapped up ASAP. Worse, I’m paired up with a contractor who’s the kind of dark-haired, chisel-faced, Italian-accented distraction I don’t need.
Antonio Ferraro, Ph.D.
The first time I spot Samantha, there’s something hauntingly familiar about her striking jade green eyes. The second time our paths cross, I remember where I’ve seen those eyes before. So when we’re thrown together to discover the truth behind the charred remains of the canvas, I begin to believe our attraction is something more than mere chance.
It doesn’t take long to figure out Samantha's a professional lie detector. And as the pressure to close the claim mounts, I can only hope the secrets she uncovers won’t include my own…
This award-winning romantic suspense contains secrets, danger, and slow-burning passions. It is the first of a series but can be read as a standalone.
