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?


Scraps of Evidence is about a detective named Tess.  She has just become a detective in a small town in Florida which she grew up in.  Her new partner, Logan, turns out to be a good partner, a man she can trust.  It comes as no surprise when they begin to have feelings for each other.  In the midst of all of this, Tess is trying to take care of her Aunt Susan, who keeps having accidents, as well as investigating in a murder that has taken place.  It becomes of special interest to Tess to find the killer when she realizes that it might be the same person who killed her best friend in high school.

This was a good book and a quick read.  I had my suspicions about who the killer was from the beginning, but the author did a good job of keeping you on your toes.  Even though you could see it coming, I enjoyed watching Tess and Logan’s relationship develop as well.
