|Guppy Book of the Month|
Welcome to the next 'Guppy Book of the Month' post! I'm very excited about highlighting the books that I'll be receiving as part of my special Live Auction win at Malice Domestic 30. Each time I receive a book, I'll tell a bit about it and also a bit about the author. No promises as to when I'll get it read and my thoughts shared, but if it looks great to you, check it out at your local library or bookstore. Some of these books will be debuts and some will be from authors already established.
5th in the Webb's Glass Shop series
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 . . .
Cheryl Hollon writes full-time after an engineering career designing and installing military flight simulators in England, Wales, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, and India. Living her dream, she combines a love of writing with a passion for creating glass art in the small glass studio behind her house in St. Petersburg, Florida.
I first met Cheryl at the Poisoned Pen Breakfast - Left Coast Crime 2016. I was sitting at Mary Anna Evans' table and this very nice lady came and sat beside me. She introduced herself and started telling me about her mystery series set in a glass shop. At that time #2 had just been published. As you can see above, Shatter At Sea is #5. I read the first, Pane and Suffering, and enjoyed it very much. Since that time, I have seen Cheryl at the two Malice Domestic conventions I have attended and she's brought gorgeous glass pieces to show as she signs books.
My deepest thanks to Cheryl for sending me a copy of Shattered At Sea! I really look forward to reading it and catching up with her Webb's Glass Shop series. I think it would be wonderful to be so gifted in creative ways. Best of luck in your writing and your glass art, Cheryl!
ahh, all the Guppy Books you've received. What fun mail delivery!ReplyDelete
I know! It's great, isn't it?Delete
Thanks for the lovely post! Now working on #6! LIFE IS GOOD!!!ReplyDelete
Yay! Glad for #6. Time for me to get caught up through #5. Thanks for stopping by, Cheryl!Delete
The author has an impressive resume! I haven't tried this series, but you've convinced me I need to. I think I would like this one--but I will definitely start with the first. :-)ReplyDelete
It's a fun series, Wendy. I like the idea of creating beautiful things with glass. Although I'd likely cut myself. Ha! Maybe I could just watch.Delete
Sounds like another good series. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Catherine! I will.Delete
I always think that a cruise ship is a great setting for a story.ReplyDelete
I do too - don't want to actually go on a cruise, but love reading about them.Delete
I've read one of the earlier books in this series and really enjoyed it. I love the sound of this one!ReplyDelete
Yes, it's a great series.Delete
Have you ever been to the glass blowing factory in Wimberley? It's so cool and I was thinking of that as I was reading your post about this book. This is a cozy I would totally check out!ReplyDelete
I have not been to that factory. Maybe one day. I have been to glass blowing places in Oregon and in Colorado. Fascinating.Delete
