Hidden in the Stars Book Review

I picked out this book because it was part of the Quilts of Love series.  I read one previously and was happy to check out another one when I got the opportunity.  I was excited to start reading  Hidden in the Stars: Quilts of Love Series by Robin Caroll.  I didn't remember what this one was about but the cover shows the ballet shoes with what looks like a dancer laying on a quilt so I interested to see how a quilt had anything to do with ballet.

Following an attack that killed her mother and had her hospitalized with stitches, broken bones and damaged vocal cords, 21-year-old gymnast Sophia Montgomery is working with the police and a lip reader to solve the crime.  Reporters find her in the hospital after the announcement of her placement on the Olympic team. She has no choice but to accept her estranged grandmother’s offer to return to her house because her mothers house was burned to the ground. In the course of the investigation, Sophia and Detective Julian Frazier start having feeling for each other but the Detective hides his feelings as concern for a trauma victim and focuses instead on finding the killer.  They learn the clues to solving the case may be right in front of them, displayed in Sophia’s mother’s “special” quilt design. Read the book to find out what clues they find to solve the crime.

I enjoyed it and read it in less than 24 hours.  I might have stayed up until 2 am reading it the first night because it jumps right into the action and is hard to put down. It has great writing that has you directly relating to the characters and wanting to see the best results for them.  I know that I will have to search out other books by this author because I know that if the characters and plot are even half as interesting as the ones in this book, I will be hooked.  I hope that you pick up this book at your local library or bookstore to see if it doesn't make you stay up to find out what happens.  Consider yourself warned!

**I was provided a copy of this book for my honest review from the publisher.  All opinions here are my own.
