Scraps of Evidence
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.

My Review:
 Follow along as Tess the leading character in Scraps of Evidence, suddenly gets a promotion at her place of work. She is promoted to detective and is on the cuspid of getting a new partner when her Aunt Susan lands herself in the hospital sporting injuries similar to those that a battered woman may receive. But when Tess questions her about it, she dismisses it saying that she tripped over the cat. Logan is a new, good-looking guy looking for a fresh start and this is what leads him to Florida, or is it? He is somewhat of a mystery to everyone, at least in the beginning.

 Soon things start to heat up when Tess and Logan are sent to investigate a homicide that looks alot like the murder of Tess's friend some years earlier, could this be the break in the case that Tess has been searching for this whole time? Tess and her Aunt Susan are very much involved in the hobby of quilt making and they enjoy it immensely. There is a quilt that the two of them often talk about and Tess soon learns that there is more behind the origins of this quilt than once realized.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Litfuse Publicity.
