Scraps of Evidence, Quilts of Love #14, by Barbara Cameron

About 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?

My Thoughts 

Tess is ready for her first day as a detective.  The day starts with meeting a new detective by the name of Logan from Chicago.  He is very nice to look at and not nearly as full of himself as she had imagined.  The day started going downhill when it was announced that Logan was to be her partner.  Then before she could finish giving him a tour of the town they get a call about an apparent murder victim.  Tess updates Logan about the town's serial killer which has now taken the life of another woman.

Tess's Aunt Kathy owns a quilting shop and they spend a lot of time together quilting which is her way of relieving stress. Her Aunt Kathy is married the Chief's right hand man Gordon whom Tess find obnoxious at times especially in his treatment towards her Aunt.

Tess and Logan spend more time together even when they were off duty.  She began to worry that it would interfere with their time on the job.  They could not deny the attraction. What path has God set for Tess and Logan?

As Tess and Logan work at solving the case of the serial killer they find unexpected clues in an heirloom quilt. The killer feels the need to kill again in order to keep secrets hidden. 

The author kept me glued to this book guessing at the turn of every page who might be the killer only to keep me bound to the story until the end of the book to find the real killer.  I felt many emotions anger at spousal abuse, fear of the killer, tenderness for young love and happiness that good conquers evil.  Divine justice will prevail.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out 5.
