ETCHED IN TEARS


Etched in Tears (A Webb's Glass Shop Mystery) by Cheryl Hollon



Etched in Tears (A Webb's Glass Shop Mystery) Cozy Mystery 4th in Series Kensington (November 28, 2017) Mass Market Paperback: 320 pages ISBN-13: 978-1496711755 E-Book ASIN: B06XFHHZJQ
When a famous glass artist is murdered at his own exhibit, deadly secrets are put on display, and it’s up to glass shop owner Savannah Webb to see through a killer’s cover.
Celebrated glass artist Dennis Lansing is returning to St. Petersburg, Florida, for an exhibit at the world-renowned Salvador Dali Museum. His unique style of embedding document images in his art is at the vanguard of contemporary glasswork. But as Savannah’s first boyfriend and a former apprentice to her father, Dennis’s return home has her reflecting on the past—a trip down memory lane that takes a dark turn when Dennis is found murdered at the museum with an old reference letter from her father in his pocket. A search through her father’s records sheds new light on Dennis’s history, but it seems his present life wasn’t so transparent either. Now, with a gallery of suspects to consider, it’s up to Savannah to figure out who fits the mold of a murderer.

 No matter how well secrets may be hidden eventually they come to the surface. 
Savannah Webb struggles to balance her work and personal life. All areas appear to be moving in the right direction. Her apprentice is coming into his own and learning how to deal with people and daily life. Her friend, deputy Joy, is proving her value as an officer, capable of taking the lead on a case. Even Rooney is showing grow. 
When Savannah is called in to consult on a murder mystery with close ties to her own past she is severely tested. Does she have the time? Can she even consider stepping back? Why did her father feel deep secrecy was called for? 
I admit I figured out who easily enough but why and how took me longer. I was also intrgued with the actions and reasoning of the secondary characters. I enjoyed the story as a whole.
