Description: 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. . .
I received an ARC of this cozy mystery from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is the first in a new series of books by this author. Prior to reading this book, the author was not familiar to me. However, I am a fan of cozy mysteries so decided to give this one a try. I was not disappointed. The story was well written and I connected with the main character from the very begining of the book. The plot moved along and I thought the author did a good job with character development. This author is a nice new voice in the cozy mystery genre and I will be looking for the next book in this series.
