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 couple nights a week she spends with her quilting guild.
Then one afternoon Tess and Logan visit her aunt in the nursing home. Aunt Susan becomes agitated when Tess covers her with her story quilt. Aunt Susan seems to be communicating a message to them about the quilt. There's a story behind this quilt, they realize, one that may lead them to a serial killer. Trusting God to lead them on the right path, they know that if there's a chance to have a future together, they'll have to stop the killer before Tess becomes his next victim.
