    Joyce and Jim Lavene write a delightful whodunit

    Renaissance Village in Myrtle Beach is for the first time in history is decorated to look like the Faire is Halloween. Renaissance reveler Jessie Morton is apprenticing under various master craftsmen to obtain research for her dissertation Proliferation of Renaissance Crafts in Modern Times. This year she is being trained by Roger Trent, owner and glassblower of the Glass Gryphon. She is also reunited with Chase.

    The strong but gentle giant Ross plays Death and is very convincing as he looks spookily like the grim reaper. When someone kills him everyone at the faire except his killer is shocked. On his chest is a note that states "Death Will Find Thee". His brother Bart takes over the role of death. Someone is also trying to frighten Jessie. When Roger is attacked with the same message left on him as that was pinned to Ross, Jessie believes the latter's nephew stalks him. Although Henry is arrested, Jessie doubts he is the killer. Instead she believes a village resident is the culprit especially when someone else vanishes.

    Jessie provides a unique look at a renaissance faire as she stumbles and tumbles into one adventure after another. Through her eyes, readers learn what happens behind the scenes and into the minds of the performers especially the revelers who relish reenactments. This is a colorful exciting amateur sleuth mystery filled with quirky characters who endear themselves to the reader as Joyce and Jim Lavene write a delightful whodunit.

    Another good light read

    Another good light read from Joyce & Jim Lavene. I just wish I could actually go to this faire. You should read Wicked Weaves first, so you can get a better background on the main charactors.

    GHASTLY!!!

    Ghastly Glass is certainly well titled I couldn't figure how to give it no star or I would have. Jr. High antics came to mind while trudging through this book. I kept waiting for it get better, no such luck. I kept saying to myself, 'lifes too short to read crummy books why are you still reading this one?' I rather like a 'B" book now and then; this one doesn't even make that grade.

    Not worth a read

    Very rudimentary in writing style, plot and character development.
