Description

Shards of Murder "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

    Shards of Murder by Cheryl Hollon is the second book in A Webb's Glass Shop Mystery. Savannah Webb has been to be a judge at the Spinnaker Art Festival (glass category, of course). It is an honor to picked. Savannah is a little nervous as this is her first time judging a competition. Her former mentor (and teacher), Keith Irving is in town. Keith has two students entered into the competition (Megan Loyola and Leon Price). When the winner does not arrive at the award ceremony the next day, Savannah goes looking for her. Savannah finds an empty booth. However, when Savannah is out walking Rooney (her Weimaraner puppy) she discovers a body in the water (in Tampa Bay) with a shard of glass in her head. Someone wanted this person dead. Savannah is the last person to see the victim alive (which means she is a suspect). Savannah and her posse gather together to find the killer (and the motive behind the killing). Will Savannah be able to find the killer before she ends up in the bay. Shards of Murder was a cute and fun story to read. I like the characters and the setting as well as the beautiful descriptions of glass as the festival. I especially like learning about different methods of working with glass (this time about fusing glass which I find fascinating). The mystery was extremely easy to solve (I guessed it immediately), but I liked the authors misdirection and clues. I give Shards of Murder 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). I found Shards of Murder just as good as the first book in A Webb’s Glass Shop Mystery, and I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. I received a complimentary copy of Shards of Murder from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
