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?

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed Cameron's story in Scraps of Evidence...a little mystery, a little romance and a story of faith. It just seemed to me that the story was rushed a bit.  The relationship between Tess and Logan just kinda happened overnight and was a little too predictable.  The story lacked a depth to it because of this.  You read more about Tess and Logan going to eat and drinking sweet tea than you do about their developing relationship which again seemed to just happen all of a sudden. 
While the plot was intriguing, Cameron played the villain up a bit too much and it was a bit too easy to figure out.  It just seemed to me there were parts of the story missing and the characters just lacked a depth to them.  Again...I enjoyed the story, their just seemed to be some gaps in the overall story. 
This is totally an editing issue, but the synopsis on the back of the book refers to the aunt by a different name.  

Happy Reading,
