I was so excited about Robin Caroll's new book that I inadvertently signed up for two blog tours! I'm giving away the second book, so be sure to read all the way to the end of the post and comment for your chance to win!

Hidden in the Stars
Robin Caroll
(Abingdon Press)
ISBN: 978-1426773600
September 2014/224 pages/$13.99

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?


Robin Caroll is the author of 22 published novels. When she isn’t writing, Robin spends time with her husband of 20‑plus years, her three beautiful daughters and two handsome grandsons, and their character‑filled pets at home in Little Rock, Arkansas. She gives back to the writing community by serving as conference director for ACFW. Her books have been named finalists in such contests as the Carol Award, HOLT Medallion, Daphne du Maurier, RT Reviewer’s Choice Award, Bookseller’s Best, and Book of the Year.

Find out more about Robin at and on Facebook and Twitter.


Robin Caroll is one of my favorite suspense authors so I was excited to discover she was writing one of Abingdon's Quilts of Love novels. Hidden in the Stars is a little different from her usual books but just as captivating. The brutal attack that destroyed Sophia's gymnastic career in addition to taking her mother's life broke my heart and immediately endeared her to me. Caroll's skill at crafting stories with multiple layers is evident as Sophia confronts surprising and difficult revelations about family relationships, recounts painful memories of the attack to the detective with the assistance of a lip reader, and wrestles with her feelings for Julian as well as her grief. Another can't-put-down book from this talented author!
