Could a quilt really hold the secrets of a serial killer?

Tess has taken some ribbing from her fellow officer, Logan, for her quilting hobby. He finds it hard to align the brisk professional officer he patrols with during the day with the one who quilts in her off-time. Besides, he’s been trying to get to know her better and he’d like to be seeing her during those few nights a week she spends with her quilting guild.

Then one afternoon Tess and Logan visit her aunt in the nursing home, and the woman acts agitated when Tess covers her with the story quilt. Aunt Susan is attempting to communicate a message to them about Tess’s uncle. There’s a story behind this quilt, they realize, one that may lead them to a serial killer. Will they have a chance to have a future together, or will the killer choose Tess for his next victim before they find him?

SCRAPS OF EVIDENCE is book 14 in Abingdon Press’ Quilts of Love series. Fans of romantic suspense will thoroughly enjoy a solving a murder tied in with the history of a quilt.  

First of all, the back cover copy provided above is not what really happens in the book. It’s somewhat close, but not exactly. And I figured out the plot and the killer early on so it wasn’t a huge surprise for me.

The writing is stellar up to Barbara Cameron’s usual standards. I enjoyed getting to know Tess. Logan is a real sweetheart, kind and considerate, and willing to let Tess do her job—both as a police officer and as a woman. The ending disappointed me. I expected it, but it was a total letdown.

If you like romantic suspense, you’ll love SCRAPS OF EVIDENCE. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. A good quick read. $12.99. 240 pages.
