When Tess Villanova's best friend, Samantha, is murdered on Senior Prom night, Tess sets her mind and heart to finding her killer. Now, at age 28, she is a detective with the St. Augustine Police department and has just joined forces with a new partner--the handsome Logan McMillan. Logan is new to sunny Florida, so, along with solving a horrific murder, the partners investigate many of the local eateries and take in the sights of the historic town-- St. Augustine actually seemed like one of the characters, with its old world charm and tourist attractions.
Tess' Aunt Susan is more like a mother than an aunt to Tess, owns a quilt shop, and shares her love of the craft of quilting with Tess. Quilting helps Tess unwind from the stress of "the job". Her latest has become something of a "quilt therapy" project to honor her friend Samantha.
Scraps of Evidence falls on the edgier side of the Quilts of Love line published by Abingdon Press. Along with the presence of a serial killer are themes of domestic abuse that lend a darker feel to the series.
Barbara Cameron knows how to put the pieces together in a page turner/romance that fans of detective stories will love.
This is a winner!

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?
