I love this type of book. I've seen them referred to as cozy mysteries and I feel that describes them exactly.
In Shards of Murder, Savannah Webb comes across a murder at a glass-making competition. She runs her late-father's shop, Webb's Glass Shop and she has been asked to be a judge at the Spinnaker Arts Festival. She chose the winner but the winner didn't claim her prize, $25,000. Her body is soon discovered by Savannah and then the adventure begins.
I enjoyed the characters. Cheryl Hollon made them fun yet believable. The story itself was well-developed and kept me wanting to read. She also included a little on the processing of glass. Overall, I found this book a nice one to pick up when I wanted to settle in and read for a little while.
I was given this book by Kensington Books and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
