Description:

A Mediterranean cruise gives glass shop owner Savannah Webb a chance to demonstrate her expertise—and fire up her skills when it comes to foul play . . .

When Savannah signs on to perform glassblowing on a ship, part of the appeal is that she’ll get a chance to reconnect with her boyfriend Edward’s family. An added bonus is that Edward’s cousin, Ian, will be joining them on board. But when Ian disappears at the beginning of the cruise, the ship’s authorities initially consider it suicide. 

Savannah tries to balance her growing suspicions with work on her shows, but her relationship with the other glass artists begins to crack. And she can’t let love color her judgment when Edward suddenly jumps to the top of the suspect list. His fate is in Savannah’s hands, and she’ll do everything she can—on land and sea—to clear his name . . .

My Thoughts:

Savannah Web and Edward Morris are headed to a wonderful cruise while Savannah works at glassblowing.  With a quick trip into England where they meet up with Ian Edward's cousin and Edwards parents.  There she learns more about England and Edward's family.  Ian, Savannah and Edward are going on the cruise.  Quickly on the cruise Ian goes missing.  Where did he go and why?

The security on the cruise ship is determined that Ian committed suicide.  Savannah and Edward aren't so easily convinced.  Finally word from Florida cops gets to the cruise ship and they agree to let Savannah help them.  This story really leads into learning more about Ian and Edward from when they were kids.

I love reading about glassblowing and also enjoy the contributes made by Jacob who goes beyond what people think he can do.  It paints a positive light on Asperger's syndrome.  I also loved reading about the twins Ruth and Faith they crack me up with their zest for wanting to help even if it is very unorthodox.

I can't wait to see what is next for Edward and Savannah!   They are so cute together and I think these books just get better over time.  Definitely look forward to the next one in this incredible series!
