CFBA: Scraps of Evidence by Barbara Cameron

Song Stuck on the Brain: Gravity by Shawn McDonald

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing:
Scraps of Evidence
Abingdon Press (January 21, 2014)

If asked what the oldest city in the U.S. was, what would be your first thought? Boston? Philly? That was certainly where my mind was going. Surprise, it's actually St. Augustine, FL. That's just the beginning of the interesting little tidbits I learned, and I love learning new, interesting things.

That's not the best part of the book though. Best part? The romance, the suspense and the MYSTERY. Barbara did a great job of laying out the serial killers crimes and then keeping you guessing to the very end.

The characters are well crafted and jump off the page. One of cast is Tess's retired English High School teacher. She's a little on the quirky side with lots of cats. The description was so vivid it immediately brought to mind one of my admired old teachers. They were so much alike I couldn't help but smile every time she entered a scene. It was priceless.

It's a great mystery with just the right touch of humor, danger and romance. It's definitely a 'gotta read'.


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?
