Review:

I automatically sign up for books that have an interesting plot, a nifty book cover/jacket or if I'm familiar with the author's other novels. When I receive the books, I stack them in a pile based on the blog tour date. I had just finished reading a book by author Barbara Cameron and then I began reading Scraps of Evidence without knowing until I was about halfway thru it that it was by the same author.

Scraps of Evidence centers on Tess, whom has worked really hard to become a police detective. She is assigned a new partner, Logan, shortly before investigating the death of a young woman, which the manner of death is similar to a high school friend of hers, who had died around prom years ago. Could it be the same killer?

While at first, Logan thinks his new partner is just the typical serious, non-emotional detective, but as he slowly gets to know Tess, he learns she has a completely different side to her. It seems when Tess isn't busy solving crimes and taking care of her Aunt Susan, she likes to spend her time quilting.

The only way to stop the serial killer may in fact lie in Tess's knowledge of quilting, especially the origins of a unique quilt.

Being a fan of James Patterson's crime novels and the Law & Order franchise, I was eagerly looking forward to reading Scraps of Evidence. Though I don't quilt, I have plenty of family members who do, so I have respect for the hobby, so I did enjoying the quilting aspects to the story. The murder mystery plot was interesting, but to me it seemed to be missing something. Maybe I have watched too much Law & Order, but some of the crime investigation and evidence didn't exactly add up. In my opinion, the novel felt a little rushed. Scraps of Evidence is still a short-page turner. Yes, it could have been better, but at least it was more interesting than the last few James Patterson’s Alex Cross novels.
