You will be drawn into the endearing characters of this series and be touched by their stories.
About the Book:
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 couple nights a week she spends with her quilting guild.
Then one afternoon Tess and Logan visit her aunt in the nursing home and she acts agitated when Tess covers her with the story quilt. Aunt Susan seems to be communicating 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?

I’ve really been enjoying the Quilts of Love series, this series is written by various authors, can be read alone and have some sort of quilt that weaves through the story and in Barbara Cameron’s book, Scraps of Evidence, it helps to solve a serial murder case and rescue Tess’ aunt from a bad situation. I must admit to being a bit confused when I first started reading as Tess’ aunt’s name on the back cover is Susan but as I was reading it became apparent that her aunt is actually a Kathy – once I got my mind sorted out on this fact it was smooth sailing. The book is fast paced from the beginning and I liked that as it made for a fun and fast read, one can feel the frantic racing of Tess as she seeks to solve her friend’s murder and the realization as to who the murderer is.
Once I got into the book and as more characterizations came to light it was fairly easy to figure out who the murderer was but Barbara does a great job in trying to throw suspicion on others through out. Using a quilt to give clues was something I’d never think of and it made for a intriguing process, what if an unsolved murder today has clues wrapped inside a quilt, really thought inspiring. Of course it’s not all murder and mayhem Tess and her partner Logan become attracted to one another – and while there is kissing and touching they each know that to pursue that would be wrong because they aren’t married, I really appreciated that fact.
If you like a good suspense, romance or even just need a good, decent Christian fiction book to curl up with then check out this and the other Quilts of Love series books. It’s definitely worth the day it took me to read this one and as I said it’s fast paced so you’ll keep turning the pages (even if you do have to tune out refrains of “MOM”). The ending seemed a bit rushed but even with that the ending was sweet and made for an enjoyable end to the book.
