SCRAPS OF EVIDENCE
Tess struggles to balance her career as a police detective and caring for her Aunt Susan. Her partner, Logan, wants to help but finds it hard to believe the brisk professional officer he works with during the day has a softer side -- and a love of quilts. It's a love Tess shares with her Aunt Susan, who cherished a particular quilt she made when she was younger.
When some of Susan's cryptic comments about the quilt and its origins spark Tess's curiosity, the detective in her leads Tess to unravel the story behind this heirloom. As she discovers the origins of the quilt, Tess unexpectedly uncovers clues that may lead her to a serial killer...a killer who is quite willing to kill again to keep his secrets hidden.
A compelling suspense with a clever quilting tie in. Love how the title marries the two themes in this book. Ingenious because that's exactly all that Tess has to tie a current case with a ten year-old cold case -- both literally and figuratively.
I enjoyed the dynamics between Tess and Logan. Small town cop versus big city cop. They have a lot to learn from each other in order to build a true partnership both at work and off the clock. I also loved the way Cameron introduces her readers to a real tourist town in Florida through the eyes of newcomer Logan.
Their current murder investigation brings Tess back to a traumatic time in her late teens. It gives her an emotional investment in the case that doesn't always leave her objective. Steadfast Logan becomes her anchor which definitely influences their team building.
A great read -- and my first experience with the Quilts of Love multi-authored series. Won't be the last one I read!
