Scraps of Evidence by Barbara Cameron - REVIEWED

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing

About the Book: 

A quilt holds the clues to life and death.
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?My Thoughts:St. Augustine, Florida is hot and getting hotter as a serial killer begins leaving a new trail of victims.  The only consistent piece of evidence is a strange mark left on each victim.  Tessa  and Logan may be newly partnered police detectives, but what a workout they face in this Quilts of Love novel!  Scraps of Evidence literally has to piece together a series of brutal murders that reach over decades!  Like the story told by a well-made quilt, this mystery comes together piece by piece, sewn together with friendships – old and new – trust given and betrayed, and as the new victims surface Tess is given a second chance to secure justice for her best friend.

The relationship between Tess and Logan is also a piece of artwork by the end of the story.  Their skills as detectives complement each other well, and as their friendship blossoms the picture of their past begins to heal and their future looks ever brighter!  Theirs is a very believable and realistic relationship that gives the story depth.

Once again, Quilts of Love has delivered another solid addition to the series!  Scraps of Evidence was a very satisfying read indeed!
