Kelly is happily settled into small town life in Wenwood,
NY. She enjoys living with her Grandy, and working three low-stress
part-time jobs. She's got a boyfriend she enjoys, but isn't
sure she's ready to commit to, being commitment-phobic and
all. Once burned, twice shy.
her mother comes to town to visit, bringing along her latest
husband who is not only a know-it-all, but apparently a buttinski
who tells others what to do and how to live. Georgia's young
cat has gone into heat and a trip to the vet to be spayed
is in order. Oh and then after a very vocal protester of the
new Riverside Promenade dies, it looks like he may have been
poisoned by a danish from the local bakery. To make matters
worse, the baker herself, who just happens to be a kindly
older lady who is dating Grandy, disappears!
Georgia had vowed she wouldn't get involved in any more amateur
sleuthing, the disappearance of Rozelle, the baker is too
much for her to leave alone. She knows Rozelle wasn't behind
the poisoning of activist David Rayburn, but somehow Rozelle's
vanishing act is connected. Can Georgia put the pieces together
as nicely as she can put stained-glass pieces together to
form a clear picture? Or will the killer get to her first?
enjoyed the first two books in this series, Ill-Gotten
Panes and Death
Under Glass but I have to say the third times the
charm in this case. A Shattering Crime is the best
yet, with the characters fully developed and the plot tightly
woven. Georgia is an interesting and very realistic protagonist
and she has a delightful crew of characters in her life. The
adorable dog and cat, added to the mix, don't hurt either!
like a clever cozy whodunit, with a plot you won't want to
put down, and a mystery that holds together throughout the
whole book, you won't want to miss “A Shattering
Crime.” Highly recommended!
