Binge Reading and a #Bookgiveaway

Character:      Amanda Blake
Title:              Down in Flames
Series:           Webb’s Glass Shop Mysteries
Author:          Cheryl Hollon
Website:         www.cherylhollon.com


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?

About Down in Flames:

A fatal hit-and-run in front of Savannah Webb's glass shop proves to be no accident. . .

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 . . .

Cheryl Hollon writes full time after she left an engineering career designing and building military flight simulators in amazing countries such as England, Wales, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan and India. 

Fulfilling the dream of a lifetime, she combines writing with a passion for creating glass art. Cheryl and her husband George live in downtown St. Petersburg visiting museums, walking the parks, and sampling the adult beverages.

  23. Cheryl Hollon's Glass Shop Mysteries are one of the best series for a great read. I've always wanted to work with glass but have not been able to partake in that craft. Thanks for including Ms. Hollon's newest book on your blog. robeader53(at)yahoo(dot)com

  25. I absolutely love this series! I think the fact that working with glass is such an artistic, creative pursuit is what appeals. If I'm sick, I definitely want light light reading. For sure my choices would include any cozy mystery series, or some "chic lit". The Janet Evanovich series is fairly light and humorous. I have also found the novels by Jenny Colgan to be light, fluffy, and sweet. Just what one needs when sick.
