E truly breathes life into her characters exposing flashes #of reality and empathy I also enjoyed the fact that Savannah was a cicerone beer sommelier She truly came # reality and empathy I also enjoyed the fact that Savannah was a cicerone beer sommelier She truly came as a strong lead and I look forward to watching her character develop with the series The side characters were reat too I already adore Edward and loved that a character with Asperger s was included too I was pleasantly surprised and excited to see that eocaching was a main topic in this book It was a fun introduction to a new outdoor adventure craze The author again described it perfectly and included detailed descriptions ON THIS UNIUE SCAVENGER HUNT GAME I ALSO THOROUGHLY this uniue scavenger hunt ame I also thoroughly the ciphers and many puzzles that the author included throughout the book for her characters to solve Overall this was an excellent start to a new series I had a few hunches along the way trying to predict the culprit fairly early on but it was fun to watch the characters put the clues together I m definitely looking forward to starting the seuel This series holds unlimited possibilities Glass blower Savannah Webb shockingly loses the two most important men in her life in only a few days time her dad John Webb and his close friend and associate Hugh Trevor Both were master stained Freedom Is a Constant Struggle: Ferguson, Palestine, and the Foundations of a Movement glass craftsmen Her dad s thriving business Webb s Glass Shop is primely located in the Grand Central District of St Petersburg Florida Reeling from both deaths Savannah isn t ready to deal with the offers coming in to buy the store and property In a daze she takes up teaching the beginning stainedlass class that Hugh would have taught She meets Edward owner of the Pub next door and Jacob the teenage apprentice her father had told her was brilliant and who suffers with Asperger s Syndrome and severe asthma and has a darling service dog a beagle named Suzy When Savannah receives threats to close down and sell the shop she has trouble etting the police to believe her suspicions that her dad and Hugh could have been victims of foul play John Webb had retired from the overnment as a cryptographer and he d taught Savannah codes and ciphers since childhood She soon realizes he d cunningly left clues to the murderer via hidden ciphersMy favorite character is Amanda a free spirited woman whose personality certainly overshadows Savannah whom I thought came across as rather weak and scatter minded The pets Jacob s beagle Suzy and Savannah s dad s pup Rooney are bright and precious In my opinion way too much story was devoted to teaching the classes and didn t help move the story forward to resolving the mystery Ms Hollon certainly knows her stained lass craft but it kept the story slow paced for this reader A ood debut Hope to see a lot mystery and sleuthing in book twoNetGalley and Kensington provided me with a complimentary ebook copy in exchange for an honest review I found this cozy mystery to be very entertaining I have read several other cozy mystery series but this series could become one of my favorites I really enjoyed reading about the art of The Craving glass making It was not a concept that I was familiar with I found it very helpful that the author included alossary for the The Murder Exchange glass making terms I believe it helps the reader understand the concept better There were several characters that made a difference in the book The main character Savannah Webb seemed very relatable because of the death of her father She displayed her emotions in a sincere way and neverave up in searching for her father s killer Officer Boulli was the character that I was the least fond of He did not believe Savannah from the beginning when she felt like there was foul play in the deaths He was portrayed as being a jerk and incompetent Detective Parker believed Savannah from the first doubt she had He never made her feel as if she was crazy for feeling the way she did He was on her side from the beginning The detective was portrayed as a caring person and appreciative of the effort from Savannah in trying to find the killer Overall I found the characters in the book to be very believable and relatable The plot was very well thought out and kept me interested until the very last page I will definitely be reading from this author starting with the other books in this series Savanna Webb returns to her home town to bury her
