ch paneARC review for Kensington Books via Netgalley.

To solve her father’s murder and save the family-owned glass shop, Savannah Webb must shatter a killer’s carefully constructed façade. . .

After Savannah’s father dies unexpectedly of a heart attack, she drops everything to return home to St. Petersburg, Florida, to settle his affairs–including the fate of the beloved, family-owned glass shop. Savannah intends to hand over ownership to her father’s trusted assistant and fellow glass expert, Hugh Trevor, but soon discovers the master craftsman also dead of an apparent heart attack.

As if the coincidence of the two deaths wasn’t suspicious enough, Savannah discovers a note her father left for her in his shop, warning her that she is in danger. With the local police unconvinced, it’s up to Savannah to piece together the encoded clues left behind by her father. And when her father’s apprentice is accused of the murders, Savannah is more desperate than ever to crack the case before the killer seizes a window of opportunity to cut her out of the picture. . .

First in a new series.

I found the characters good and rounded.  The plot was interesting and different than normally found in a first in a new series. With interesting information on stained glass techniques, speciality beers, teas and cipher codes that soldered well with the story.

Will be interesting to see what the next book will be like.  Overall I liked it.

Expected publication: September 29th 2015 by Kensington.

5 stars*****
