Hi, Amanda Blake here. I'm the office manager and an assistant instructor for Webb's Glass Shop. I can't believe that the owner, Savannah Webb, is so supportive. I'm working fewer hours just now because my mother isn't doing too well. It's a challenge to keep everything on track.
I'm pretty busy figuring out how to marshal the many community services that are available to help us manage her failing health. There are a huge number of volunteer organizations that not only support her, but also help me as her primary care giver. I love this community.
The one thing my mother hasn't relinquished is her passion for reading. She is a voracious reader and instilled that same desire in me. What a gift. Right now she's binge reading her way through author Sue Grafton's alphabet series. As of this morning, she's on R is for Ricochet.
At this speed, she'll be through that series in just a few more days. I need some recommendations. What series do you turn to when you aren't feeling well?
A highlight of Savannah's new glass bead workshop is a technique called flame-working, which requires the careful wielding of acetylene torches. Understandably, safety is a top priority. But as Savannah is ensuring her students' safety inside, a hit-and-run driver strikes down a pedestrian outside her shop.
The victim is Nicole Borawski, the bartender/manager at the Queen's Head Pub, owned by Savannah's boyfriend Edward. It quickly becomes clear that this was no random act of vehicular manslaughter. Now the glass shop owner is all fired up to get a bead on the driver--before someone else meets a dead end . . .
