When a wealthy theater owner is killed by a falling art glass chandelier, glass beadmaker Jax O’Connell’s boyfriend, Detective Zachary Grant, quickly determines it was no accident. Jax and her friend Tessa try to carry on with a charity fashion gala at the theater, but with only a few days before the big event, they have to scramble to keep things from falling apart. The emcee quits, and to make matters worse, Tessa’s daughters are suspects in the murder.
As the chaos unfolds, Jax discovers new suspects at every turn, including an edgy glass blower, an agoraphobic socialite, and a hunky former-cop-turned-actor. Can Jax piece together the clues to find the killer and uncover the dark secrets behind the victim’s family or will it be curtains for her?

If not for the Reader.....
I might have given this title more stars. It was so difficult to listen to. Jacobs timing seemed very off and initially I tried to change the speed to see if that helped. It didn’t.
But in fairness to the author I wanted to listen through to the end. Now I have to say, I don’t have a lot of exposure to the cozy mystery genre. I do adore mysteries and tend to read longer stories with really well developed plot lines. This was not a complicated story. It was somewhat light hearted -given that it is about murder. But the murder seemed secondary in this story, which was chock full of other endearing moments-glass beads, cute cars, funky neighbor gals and cats....all made for an overall enjoyable read.....and next time, I will actually do the reading.

I found this series to be very entertaining. Being a glass bead maker I thought it would be a fun listen while working in my shop and it was. I enjoyed trying to put real world faces on the characters and found Mary Ann Jacobs to be an engaging in narrator. Great light listening and Janice clearly understands glass and the glass community. Even if glass and beads are not your thing, this series is a great light read or listen.
