ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

A Word from the author:

CBD, CBA, and ECPA bestselling author of 35 books (including new series upcoming for Abingdon Press in 2011/2012) including fiction and non-fiction books for Abingdon Press, Thomas Nelson, Harlequin, and other publishers.

I sold three films to HBO/Cinemax and am the first winner of the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award.

My two novellas won the 2nd and 3rd place in the Inspirational Readers Choice Contest from the Faith, Love, and Hope chapter of RWA. Both were finalists for the novella category of the Carol Award of the American Christian Writers Award (ACFW).

ABOUT THE BOOK

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?

If you would like to read the first chapter of , go HERE.

My thoughts: It’s a little disturbing that the back of the book isn’t consistent with the story and contains actual unforgivable errors (for example, Tess’ aunt is named Kathy and she’s in the hospital for surgery, not living in a nursing home!) but thankfully the author did a better job than the cover-writer!! I haven’t read any of Barbara’s other books but she managed to keep my interest from start to finish with this one and I read it in record time. Although it’s pretty light-on as far as a suspense goes and a little corny as far as romance goes, the story does draw you in right through to it’s conclusion. For someone used to reading more serious suspense, I was a little disappointed that answers weren’t given to some of the background questions and did feel a bit like I was left hanging. However, if you like a light read, this book is worth checking out.
