A fatal hit-and-run in front of Savannah Webb’s glass shop proves to be no accident . . .
A highlight of Savannah’s new glass bead workshop is a technique called flame-working, which requires the careful wielding of acetylene torches. Understandably, safety is a top priority. But as Savannah is ensuring her students’ safety inside, a hit-and-run driver strikes down a pedestrian outside her shop.
The victim is Nicole Borawski, the bartender/manager at the Queen’s Head Pub, owned by Savannah’s boyfriend Edward. It quickly becomes clear that this was no random act of vehicular manslaughter. Now the glass shop owner is all fired up to get a bead on the driver—before someone else meets a dead end
Cheryl Hollon now writes full-time after she left an engineering career of designing and building military flight simulators in amazing countries such as England, Wales, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, and India. Fulfilling the dream of a lifetime, she combines her love of writing with a passion for creating glass art. In the small glass studio behind her house in St. Petersburg, Florida, Cheryl and her husband design, create, and produce fused glass, stained glass, and painted glass artworks.

Book Review by Bree Herron
In a fantastic twisting mystery, Cheryl Hollon proves once again that she has the mystery molded perfectly. We may be learning about the flame working in glass world but soon a hit and run has readers hitting the pavement to solve the crime. Savannah is a charming and smart sleuth that leads us to find the clues.
I really enjoyed reading this mystery and reacquainting myself with the series. I have been a fan but fell a bit behind, I was really excited that I felt like I was coming home to the series and able to keep up. This series always has a great source of interesting details that go along with Savannah’s job and passion. I find myself very curious into the glass making world.
The mystery in this book was partially well done. I found myself with a host of clues and suspects and still seeking the answer at the end. It was a delightful sleuthing adventure.
