Book Review-Shards of Murder-(A Webb's Glass Shop Mystery)-Cheryl Hollon

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

This is such a well thought out murder mystery that you will never guess who really did it until you are told at the end! Savannah has taken over her fathers glass shop after his death. She is also asked to take over his duties as judge for the Spinnaker Arts Festival. Yes, she is very nervous. Actually she finds it quite easy to pick the winner--but then at the award ceremony-the winner does not show up (to receive her $25,000 prize). No one knows where she is. While out with her dog on their morning run the dog spots something and won't budge---yup--it was the winner of the prize-dead.

Somehow Savannah has to find out who the killer is in order to get herself off the police list of suspects. She and her friends start to investigate all while running classes in glass making and taking her puppy to obedience training classes. Of course as I am sure you can imagine things start happening.

So who killed the artist and why? And who actually catches the killer? Trust me when I tell you you will enjoy this book. It is not only for adults-I think teens or even pre-teens would enjoy this one! (Of course as I always say-parents read it first-only you know your child).

About the Book: (from Amazon)

"A fresh and original new series!" --Krista Davis, New York Times bestselling author

When a glass-making competition turns deadly, glass shop owner Savannah Webb must search for a window into a criminal's mind…

As the new proprietor of Webb's Glass Shop, Savannah has been appointed to fill her late father's shoes as a judge for the Spinnaker Arts Festival, held in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. With her innovative glass works, the clear winner is Megan Loyola, a student of Savannah's former mentor.

But when Megan doesn't show up to accept her $25,000 award, rumors start flying. And when Savannah discovers the woman's dead body on festival grounds, the police immediately suspect her of murder. To keep from appearing before a judge herself, Savannah sorts through the broken pieces of glass scattered around the victim for clues as to who took this killer competition too far…

"Cheryl Hollon clearly knows her glass craft, but better still, she also knows how to craft a good mystery." --Sheila Connolly, New York Times bestselling author
