Series: Webb’s Glass Shop Mysteries
Author: Cheryl Hollon
Hi, Savannah here. One of the lovely things about living in Florida is that we are close to many cruise ports. The closest one is in Tampa. Cruise ships also leave out of Port Canaveral, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami.
While I was an apprentice in Seattle, WA, I was sent for training in Corning, NY, to be a glass blower on a class of cruise ships that had a hot shop on the top deck. The training was necessary because cruise ships are not permitted to have an open flame for the creation of their pieces. Instead, electric powered ovens are used for heating the molten glass and curing the finished pieces.

About Shattered at Sea
A Mediterranean cruise gives glass shop owner Savannah Webb a chance to demonstrate her expertise--and fire up her skills when it comes to foul play.
When Savannah signs on to perform glass blowing on a cruise ship, part of the appeal is that she'll get to meet her boyfriend Edward's family in England. As an added bonus, Edward's cousin, Ian, will be joining them on board. But when Ian disappears at the beginning of the cruise, the ship's authorities initially consider it suicide.
