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. . .

My Thoughts:

Savannah has returned home to her father's house after he has died and now Savannah has to figure out what do with her father's business when there are two men vying for the business Frank and  Gregory Smythe each for reasons Savannah hadn't figured out yet.  Not long into the book an old friend of the family that Savannah was going to sell Webb's for Hugh who wound up dead.  Of course Savannah is having a heck of a time getting the police to take him seriously.

I really enjoyed this book and meeting all sorts of people that Savannah comes in contact with like the british pub owner who supplies Savannah with great coffee everyday is there more to come of the relationship between Savannah and Edward?  I can't wait to see how the relationship moves on.  I also enjoyed the fact that the author included an autistic boy in the book Jacob who really added to the story with his service dog as well.  It really just gave the story that much more when the adults come to Jacob's aid when it's needed.  Can't wait to see what the author comes up with next for this great new series!
