New from Abingdon Press’ Quilts of Love series | Hidden in the Stars
A quilt holds the secret to a killer still at large—and who his next victim will be.
Following an attack that killed her mother and stole her ability to speak, 21‑year‑old Sophia Montgomery has no choice but to accept her estranged grandmother’s offer to return to their family home. Although detective Julian Frazier is working hard on the case, Sophia unknowingly frustrates him because her inability to speak thwarts her eyewitness evidence. The fact that Julian is undeniably attracted to Sophia doesn’t help either, so Julian hides his feelings as concern for a trauma victim and focuses instead on finding the killer.
Little do they know, the clues to solving the case may be right in front of them, displayed in Sophia’s mother’s “special” quilt design. Who will realize the secret Sophia’s unwittingly been hiding in plain sight? When the truth comes to light, will Sophia find her voice again? Or will the murderer—still at large—silence her forever?
My opinion: I really enjoyed the mystery and intrigue of this book. The main characters were interesting and well rounded. I really liked how the main characters relationship blossomed in a sweet and not over the top way. The mystery kept me guessing and drew me in. At first I wasn't sure how the quilt aspect would be woven in, but it became apparent pretty quickly. I highly recommend this book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
