Visit the real QueensHead pub at 2501 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, Florida

By: Edward Morris, owner of the QueensHead Pub
Title: Shards of Murder
Series: Webb's Glass Shop Mysteries
Author: Cheryl Hollon


My name is Edward Morris and I own the QueensHead Pub right next door to Savannah’s family business, Webb’s Glass Shop. I want to take this opportunity to tell you a bit about my pub. It is located in a former gas station in the heart of The Grand Central District, it’s a stylish yet homey reinterpretation of the British pub, with the added attraction of a South-Beachy front courtyard.

Another reason to stop by is to take advantage of St Petersburg’s breezy evenings and 360 days of sunshine on our fabulous outdoor patio. Situated along the newly designed Central Avenue, enjoy an evening of live entertainment in one of our lounging private cabanas, a power-hour business lunch al-fresco or join friends with our award-winning Sunday champagne brunch. All this capped off by the Grand Central Districts fabulous art galleries, antique shops and boutiques.


PLUS:
--- Live Music on the patio - Featuring local singer songwriters performing original music - check Facebook for weekly listings, check their Website
--- Today is the Fish and Chips Special - Best of the Bay for $10.95.
--- Second Saturday Artwalk - Feet got you beat? After working up an appetite at our surrounding local galleries, join us for a cold beer and a tasty dinner.

I’d love it if you would come down and visit. I’m usually back in the kitchen baking scones for Savannah’s posse, but have Nicole the bartender give me a shout. I’d love to share the food and drink we serve here at the QueensHead pub.

You can read more about Savannah’s next adventure in Shards of Murder, the second book in the Webb’s Glass Shop Mystery series, published by Kensington Books and available at your favorite bookstore or online after February 23, 2016.

About Shards of Murder:

When a glass-making competition turns deadly, glass shop owner Savannah Webb must search for a window into a criminal’s mind. . .

As the new proprietor of Webb’s Glass Shop, Savannah has been appointed to fill her late father’s shoes as a judge for the Spinnaker Arts Festival, held in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. With her innovative glass works, the clear winner is Megan Loyola, a student of Savannah’s former mentor.

But when Megan doesn’t show up to accept her $25,000 award, rumors start flying. And when Savannah discovers the woman’s dead body on festival grounds, the police immediately suspect her of murder. To keep from appearing before a judge herself, Savannah sorts through the broken pieces of glass scattered around the victim for clues as to who took this killer competition too far. . .
