"I didn't mean to set my sweater aflame." said her twin sister Faith. "I was distracted by the torch. It has so many controls. I thought a class making glass beads would be a piece of cake." Faith sniffed and used her handkerchief to blow her nose.
"Now, don't start crying." Rachel gave her sister a side hug. "Savannah Webb is an excellent instructor. She will make sure we stay safe."
Faith sniffed again, "We're lucky that Savannah doesn't throw us out of class and forbid us to ever come back again."
Rachel huffed, "She's not that kind of small business owner. She knows that we have supported her in every kind of glass art instruction that Webb's Glass Shop has offered. All her students are safe in her classes."
"You're right, but I hope nothing else goes wrong."
Will the Rosenberg twins finish Savannah Webb's new bead-making glass? Could this be the one that tests Savannah's patience beyond the breaking point?
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 . . .
