Reading a good mystery is a great way to spend an evening or two and Barbara Cameron’s new book Scraps of Evidence is a good choice. The book is part of the Quilts of Love series. So pop some popcorn or make some fudge and settle in for a good read.
First of all, I fell in love with St. Augustine, Florida, the setting for this book. I would hate the summer humidity but fall sounded appealing. The historical aspects and beauty of the ocean side city sounded wonderful. But the different restaurants with descriptions of the food had me hooked. It sounded like culinary heaven.
Most of all, Cameron has written an exciting book. I did figure out the “who dunnit” part early on but this was also a good romance and the mystery unfolded at a fast pace that kept me happily reading. The final key that solved the mystery was a handmade quilt and that was an interesting twist. Cameron also created believable, likeable characters. Protagonists Tess and Logan were detective partners who were impressive and the villain was truly the worst of villains.
As previously stated, Scraps of Evidence is a good way to spend an evening giving the reader an exciting mystery, a romance and an opportunity to get to know beautiful St. Augustine. I recommend this book and look forward to other books in this series.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review. All opinions expressed are my own.
About the Book:
(A Quilt of Love 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?
