After inheriting a house in Seattle, Jax O'Connell is living the life of her dreams as a glass bead maker and jewelry designer. When she gets an offer to display her work during a bead shop's opening festivities, it's an opportunity Jax can't resist - even though the store's owner is the surliest person Jax has ever met. The weekend's events become a tangled mess when a young bead maker is found dead nearby and several oddball bead enthusiasts are suspects. Jax must string together the clues to clear her friend Tessa's name - and do it before the killer strikes again.

A fun cozy mystery in the world of glass beadmaking and hand-made jewelry. Lots of background and character building through first third of the book, but mystery is worth it.
This is a poor example of a cozy mystery. The characters are flat and uninteresting. The lead character is preachy, goody too shoes who seems to have everything handed to her. I listened until it put me to sleep. At that point, I gave up and returned it.
