Character: Savannah Webb
Series: Webb’s Glass Shop Mysteries
Author: Cheryl Hollon
I'm sure I'll feel nostalgic about it because my late father used to take me to the children's parade -- the non-alcoholic version with not quite so many noisy cannon and pistol shots splitting the air. As a teenager, I regularly attended the night parade and hoped to catch some of the beads thrown from the floats. I can't wait to see what Edward thinks of this unique event.

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 . . .
