Book Description

After inheriting a house in Seattle, Jax O'Connell is living the life of her dreams as a glass beadmaker and jewelry designer. When she gets an offer to display her work during a bead shop’s opening festivities, it's an opportunity Jax can't resist—even though Rosie Perez, the store's owner, is the surliest person Jax has ever met.

The weekend’s events become a tangled mess when a young beadmaker is found dead nearby and several oddball bead enthusiasts are suspects. Jax must string together the clues to clear her friend Tessa's name—and do it before the killer strikes again.

About the Author

 Janice Peacock decided to write her first mystery novel after working in a glass studio full of colorful artists who didn’t always get along. They reminded her of the odd, and often humorous, characters in the murder mystery books she loved to read. Inspired by that experience, she combined her two passions and wrote High Strung: A Glass Bead Mystery, the first book in a new cozy mystery series featuring glass beadmaker Jax O’Connell. When Janice Peacock isn’t writing about glass artists who are amateur detectives, she makes glass beads using a torch, designs one-of-a-kind jewelry, and makes sculptures using hot glass. An award-winning artist, her work has been exhibited internationally and is in the permanent collections of several museums. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, three cats, and seven chickens. She has a studio full of beads...lots and lots of beads.

My Review

High Strung is the first book in the Glass Bead Mystery series by author Janice Peacock. This is the first book of Janice's that I've read.

Jax O'Connell is a glass bead artist and jewelry designer. I have a huge collection of artisan lampwork glass beads and love to design my own jewelry. I found that author Peacock's descriptions of lampworking and bead stringing to be very accurate.

Jax is an interesting character and I enjoyed her as the main character. She has an eclectic group of friends that keep the story entertaining. The mystery revolves around a bead shop. Someone attempts to kill the bead shop owner Rosie and a young beadmaker is found murdered. There are plenty of suspects for Jax to sift through!

A fun light mystery set in Seattle. Only 99 cents from December 5th to 9th.
