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 take on this book:
Scraps of Evidence is different from most of the books I read by Barbara Cameron, because her main characters are usually Amish. With this one we have Tess who has recently been promoted to detective, and is looking forward to meeting her new partner when her aunt Cathy winds up in the hospital. Cathy and Tess both have a love of quilting, and often talk about more than a few of their quilts. When Tess finally meets her new partner Logan McMillan , it isn't long before they are investigating a murder, a murder that seems eerily similar to a murder that took her best friend in high school, one that was never solved, and the reason she got in law enforcement in the first place. Could there be a serial killer at work? Can Tess and Logan unravel the mystery and figure out who the killer is?

Quilts and a mystery what's not to enjoy? The characters of Tess and Logan were easy to like,they seemed very realistic and the romance that developed between the pair seemed logical. While the mystery of who-dun-it was easy to figure out there was still a bit of suspense to keep the plot moving. I enjoyed the way the quilt tied into the story, and the ending tied the story up nicely. Overall, an ok mystery with a nice romance solid characters that touches on faith, love and family. I will say I always look for an animal in any book I read and with this one there was Prissy aunt Kathy's Persian Cat.  Overall, a good afternoon read. I have enjoyed the Quilts of Love series and look forward to reading more!

  1. I've enjoyed the Quilts of Love books, great review!

    1. JoyAnne, I totally agree the Quilt of Love books really are great, each story is unique.

  2. I just got done posting a few lines of my review of Scraps of Evidence on the LitFuse site. That is how I found your blog. I see that we review many of the same books, so I will be adding your blog to my reading list. Was wondering if you'd stop by my blog Thoughts from Mill Street occasionally? I'd enjoy comments and feedback. I am a retired school librarian and English teacher. Besides reading and blogging, I garden, quilt, sew for the grandkids, and spend time at our northern Wisconsin cabin. Our local library hosts a bookclub and we have some lively discussions. Tonight we discuss Kate Morton's The Secret Keeper.
