Series: Webb’s Glass Shop Mysteries
Author: Cheryl Hollon
Hi there, I’m Savannah Webb, owner of Webb’s Glass Shop on Central Avenue in St. Petersburg, Florida. I’m so exited about our new class that begins at the start of summer, I can't stop talking about it. This time of year is typically a very slow season here in the Grand Central District. It’s slow because most of our students return up north until the snow begins to fly. I'm hoping that a brand new class will interest the locals.
The exciting news is that my good friend and store manager, Amanda Blake, will be teaching her first ever class. I know she’s capable, but the first time is always a nerve-wracking experience. I know she’ll be fine – absolutely fine.
The six student vacancies filled up quickly and it appears that we will enjoy the lively company of the Rosenberg twins, Rachel and Faith. They are a fixture for Webb’s Glass Shop classes. I can’t remember exactly when they started to attend classes, but it’s been a long, long time. They must be nearing eighty-years-old by now. You certainly can’t tell – they are sharp as tacks and have been staunch supporters of the small businesses in our local community.
Its being reported in the media that some real evidence has been found confirming that a treasure site has been uncovered in the Intercoastal Waterway near the beach community of Treasure Island. That would be an exciting find. It could confirm the myth that Gaspar the Pirate had indeed used the inland waterways for burying his plunder taken from ships making their way through the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. I’ve heard that both coins and bottles have been found.
I must go now. Amanda needs to get ready for the new class. She needs to create a teaching plan for each day of the workshop and put that information in a notebook. I'm also going to help her gather some examples of the projects that will be created and make sure that all the materials are copied and compiled into handouts ready for the students. A lot to do, but we hope the students will enjoy taking bottles that would end up in the trash and creating beautiful cheese trays, garden decorations and hand crafted gifts. I think you would it enjoy it, too.

About Cracked to Death:
When a treasure hunt leads to deadly plunder, it’s up to glass shop owner Savannah Webb and her trusty investigative posse to map out the true motives of a killer . . .
It's the dog days of summer in St. Petersburg, Florida, and Webb's Glass Shop proprietor Savannah Webb has an eco-friendly plan to help locals escape the heat--a recyclable bottle-crafting workshop taught by reticent store manager Amanda Blake. Turns out, the class is a bigger smash than expected, thanks in part to a pair of staggeringly old bottles brought in by snorkeler Martin Lane . . .
Linked to a storied pirate shipwreck, the relics definitely pique Savannah's interest. But intrigue turns to shock when Martin's lifeless body washes ashore the next morning, another glass artifact tucked in his dive bag. With cell phone records connecting Amanda to the drowning, Savannah must voyage through uncharted territory to exonerate her colleague and capture the twisted criminal behind Martin's death . . .
