Review of Scraps of Evidence by Barbara Cameron (From the Quilts of Love Series)

This was another book in the Quilts of Love Series from Abingdon. This series, comprised of books by many different Christian fiction/romance writers, has many different kinds of books set in all different places and taking place in many different time periods; but all of the stories center around a quilt.

Scraps of Evidence was unique from any of the other books that I've read so far in the series. It was set in contemporary times in a small town and was a mystery read. There was still a quilt in the story, but it was very different because of the mystery element.

I enjoyed this one, but it wasn't my favorite of the series. The characters were likable, and their story was interesting. The mystery was compelling, and I enjoyed trying solve the mystery. But there were quite a few things in the way the story moved that just seemed a bit unbelievable. Some of the action seemed a little hard to believe. And the characters connected very quickly- in an unrealistic way.

It's a light, easy read to fill up an afternoon. I give this one 3.5 stars and a PG-13 for content (because of the murder mystery).

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

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 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?
