Quilts of Love Series Comes Our With Another Winner!!

"Hidden in the Stars"
   By Robin Caroll

I know that when the  mail carrier brings me a book in this series, I will be out of commission to my household for the duration of the read!! This newest book in the series is no exception. Any book involving a quilt just has to be good, right??? All quilters would sure agree!

"Hidden in the Stars"  catches your interest on the first page and the suspense builds as you continue the book. The twists and turns in the plot are 
 surprising and unexpected. This is a GREAT romantic mystery!! It has everything a reader enjoys!

Can a quilt possibly hold the secret to a serial killer??? This is the premise that the story is built upon. 

If God's plan for our life takes a nose dive and something bad happens, does it mean that He no longer has control or is it due to using our free will to make a bad decision?? This is dealt with throughout the book in truly mysterious ways.
The main character, Sophia, an Olympic class gymnast, has had her voice stolen from her in an attack that killed her mother. She has no choice but to accept help from her estranged grandmother. Once an Olympic hopeful, her future is now uncertain, and her ability to speak to tell her side of the attack frustrates the detectives looking for answers. Sophia has no idea what the criminals were after?? Why did they choose herself and her mother to beat??

Then, Julian Frazier enters the scene, determined that he will solve this case and find all the answers. However, a bit of romance now comes to the front. He is distracted by his heart and questions about why a gracious God would allow such an event to happen. Julian fails to realize that the answer is right in front of him. He begins to wonder if he will be up to the task of saving Sophia! Will the murderer be back to silence HER forever as was done to her mother???

I found myself on the edge of my seat with my heart pounding as the plot proceeds to develop. This author has a special talent in building the suspense until you feel you are ready to explode with curiosity.

Sophia was described in a realistic, believable manner, to the extent that I could identify with her from the first chapter. I was able to feel her every worry, fear, joy, and yes, some romance too!

Definitely a five star book!! A unique way of connecting a quilt, romance, mystery and family relationships to create a story proving that God does love us, has a plan for us and is with us through good times and bad.
