Book Description

 "A fresh and original new series!" --Krista Davis, New York Times bestselling author

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 unchartered territory to exonerate her colleague and capture the twisted criminal behind Martin's death . . .

"Cheryl Hollon clearly knows her glass craft, but better still, she also knows how to craft a good mystery." --Sheila Connolly, New York Times bestselling author

My Review

Cracked to Death is the third book in the Webb's Glass Shop Mystery series by author Cheryl Hollon. Cracked to Death is the first book of Hollon's that I have read.

Great setting! I love St. Petersburg in Florida! And a contemporary topic...upcycling..not recycling but upcycling. Old bottles. But not just any old bottle...pirate treasure? Pirates and Florida...something new to learn about.

Cracked to Death is a well written fast read. Plenty of interesting characters. And a good mystery. Very enjoyable.

Highly recommend this cozy mystery!



  1. Blurb on book looks ssooo intriguing. Your books are on my TBR. Just haven't gotten there yet. So am hoping this will be a start. Della at

  2. I just found this series and enjoyed the first
    book I read. Looking forward to more of the story.

  3. When you start a new book, do you have all the characters in place and an ending planned, or does it come to you as you write?
