Scraps of Evidence by Barbara Cameron Book Review and KINDLE FIRE HDX Giveaway

Disclosure:  I received the product mentioned above for free for the purpose of this review. I was not financially compensated for this post.  The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.  However, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Tess Villanova is a Detective with the St Augustine police force, and has just been assigned a new male partner, Logan McMillan. Logan hails from Chicago and has a distinct personality that added interest to the book right away. I really liked both Tess and Logan together and I think you will too. They are both super professional, Christians, and have both been forced to confront that scary prospect of why bad things happen in our world...over and over again.  The book takes you back to Tess's senior year in high school when she faced the horror of seeing her best friend murdered at the prom. Can you even imagine?  Her sweet friend Samantha was the first victim of a maniacal serial killer.  Then another body is unearthed and the dynamic duo of Tess and Logan are assigned to lead this critical investigation.  Tess is still doing her quilting and this plays into the fact her Aunt who lives in the nursing home has a clue that is going to help but I don't want to say much more and give anything away.
The two investigators work closely together to find the serial killer and while they do so they also discover a mutual attraction.  This gets kind of tricky and interesting too! Of course Tess and her quilting guild get in a way sometimes but Logan is persistent. It makes for a great read.  Things become super complicated because they still are working together.  You get a sweet romantic story plus a mystery all wrapped up in one.  What could be better for a beach vacation read or a cold winter weekend? I had a couple of people in mind who I was suspecting as the killer but I wasn't really sure till very close to the end. Maybe you will guess faster than I did. I love mysteries!
