When you read a cozy mystery, sometimes it’s fun to immerse yourself in a world that is a little bit different from your own. That was it for me with Cheryl Hollon’s Shards of Murder. I’ve never even thought about how beautiful pieces of glass artwork are made, so the information shared on different glass creation techniques was interesting. It also made me very sure I didn’t want to handle the stuff. She doesn’t call it Shards of Murder for nothing.
I was so interested in how they make these glass works, I checked it out on You Tube. It really is fascinating.

Here is my review:
Shards of Murder was a delightful cozy mystery that brings the reader into the world of glass artistry. Savannah Webb is the judge in the glass category of an art show after taking over her father’s studio. The winner doesn’t show up to receive a 25,000 prize It isn’t long before it’s obvious the world of glass is a cutthroat business. Savannah, with her superior knowledge of glass must solve the murder after she is named a suspect. The world of aspiring artists, glass students and even an autistic young man was a pleasant place to put together clues, suspects and the identity of a murderer. Well written, fun characters, and plenty of broken glass gives this book 4 Stars.
