The story is a little slow paced in the beginning as the author develops the main characters and sets the scene, but this pays off well later on. Throughout the book, there is a beginner's class taught at the shop where the students make glass sun catchers. Tidbits about how to cut and solder glass is woven into the story, but this enhances the story rather than feel intrusive to the overall book.
There might be a romance between two of the characters that gets explored in later books, but the fledgling romance feels a little out of place here.
I thought for sure I knew who the killer was, but it turned out to be a character not even remotely on my radar. I enjoyed that twist in the plot-line and Savannah's ultimate decision of what to do with her family's store.
Overall, this was an enjoyable mystery. I learned a bit about the glass business and I'm looking forward to the next story, Shards of Glass, when it comes out next year.
