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 Comments: This is the first non-Amish fiction book I’ve read by Barbara Cameron and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It was somewhat predicatable, but sometimes I need a book like that. Cameron’s writing engages me. A sweet romance develops throughout the story. The only negative thing I can say is that the story ends somewhat abruptly. Maybe this will lead to a sequel? The story is clean and enjoyable. Christianity presents itself but not in a way that would off-put non-believers.
This book will be published in January 2014. I received a review copy from NetGalley. Thanks – this is my honest opinion.
