Review:
 
If you have never read a book from the Quilts of Love series, then you're missing out on some great storytelling. The series is published by Abingdon Press, featuring a different author with every new title. Each book has a new plot and a new group of characters, but each and every plot somehow involves a quilt. Typically these books are a straightforward romantic novel, but the newest entry, Hidden in the Stars, is completely different from the others.

Hidden in the Stars centers on Sophia Montgomery, a talented gymnast who has just been accepted as a member of an Olympic team, but all her dreams are quickly shattered when her mother and her are assaulted. Her mother is killed during the incident, but Sophia barely survives, losing her eyesight and injuring her hands. Out of nowhere the grandmother she thought was dead shows up to help Sophia slowly pick up the pieces.

Meanwhile, Detective Julian Frazier is investigating the attack and is determined to catch whomever killed Mrs. Montgomery and injured Sophia. The longer he works on the case, the stronger his feelings for Sophia become. Though he might be able to catch the murderer, he doesn't know if he can help mend Sophia's broken spirit.

Like I already mentioned, Hidden in the Stars is not your typical Quilts of Love book. This story has a murder mystery plot that is entwined with a quilt in a very unique way. I won't go into in other details, as I don’t' want to spoil it for other readers. Don't let the 224 page length fool you, as the books is well-written and has a tight-knit plot that is more intriguing that novels twice as long. Overall, Hidden in the Stars is a fantastic novel from start to finish. I'm not familiar with author, Robin Caroll, but I'll have to look for her other titles.
