“Scraps of Evidence” Quilts of Love series, by Barbara Cameron, book review

Tess has worked hard to get the promotion to detective, and now has a new partner, Logan. Together they investigate the murder of a young lady. But some of the facts of the case remind Tess of when her best friend from high school was murdered the night of the prom.

Logan is new to Florida. New job and partner keep him busy, but he is glad to have Tess as his partner. They work well together. She shows him the ropes of the area and the job. Tess just seems to know everyone! And she should because she grew up here, and her uncle is the deputy chief of police.

But Tess is spending too much time at the hospital with her Aunt Kathy. Kathy seems to have become very unstable on her feet, and has been injured several times from falling, or so she says. But now Tess has her doubts.

Aunt Kathy owns a quilt store and has taught Tess to love quilting too. Sitting in the hospital room she has time to work on her latest quilt, the Lighthouse quilt she is designing.

I enjoyed this book. It is set in contemporary time and deals with the issues of domestic violence, be aware if that might be a problem for you. This is one of the “Quilts of Love” series.

A Word from the author:

CBD, CBA, and ECPA bestselling author of 35 books (including new series upcoming for Abingdon Press in 2011/2012) including fiction and non-fiction books for Abingdon Press, Thomas Nelson, Harlequin, and other publishers.

I sold three films to HBO/Cinemax and am the first winner of the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award.

My two novellas won the 2nd and 3rd place in the Inspirational Readers Choice Contest from the Faith, Love, and Hope chapter of RWA. Both were finalists for the novella category of the Carol Award of the American Christian Writers Award (ACFW).


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?
