FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!

Stained-glass aficionado Georgia Kelly packed up her city life for the quiet of small town Wenwood, New York. But the sleepy village’s peace is about to get shattered—by murder…

After a banking scandal loses Georgia her job and fiancé, she decides that a change of scenery will help piece her life back together. But escaping to her grandfather’s house in the old-fashioned, brick-making Hudson River hamlet of Wenwood, New York, turns out to be less relaxing than she expects. Not only is the close-knit community on edge about their beloved brickworks being turned into a marina to draw in tourists, one of those most opposed to the project winds up dead—cracked over the head with a famous Wenwood brick.

Georgia wouldn’t be broken up over the news except for the fact that the main suspect is the deceased’s biggest adversary—her grandfather. Now, to remove the stain from her grandy’s record, Georgia will have to figure out who in town was willing to kill to keep the renovation project alive, before someone else is permanently cut out of the picture…

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
07/01/2014
Accountant Georgia Kelly knew she could always come "home" to the Upstate New York village of Wenwood and stay with her grandfather, Pete Keene. It is tougher this time after she loses her job (and her fiancé) in New York City and cannot get started again. Her hobby of working with stained glass provides some solace. She is startled out of her blues when her grandfather is accused of murdering the local hardware store owner, with whom he apparently had a major beef. Trouble is Pete won't tell Georgia what the disagreement was about; the cops have Pete in jail, and Georgia figures it's up to her to find the real killer. She suspects money is at issue, and if it's one thing Georgia knows how to do, it's "follow the money." VERDICT McAndrews's sweet debut is long on cute with the de rigueur adorable kitten and a spunky, redheaded protagonist. This cozy will snag those intrigued by the stained-glass side of the story and a gorgeous cover (can't go wrong with Tiffany).

    This book is an odd mix for me, I like the stained glass part al

    This book is an odd mix for me, I like the stained glass part although I wish there had been a little more about it. The town is old and run down and needs a jumpstart, which is different from other cozies, and you start rooting for something to come in and boost the economy. The main character Georgia is likeable enough although I couldn't totally get into her, sometimes I just couldn't get her thought process, that's just my opinion. I did love her friend Carrie, she seemed like the one ray of sunshine in this town, most people seemed grumpy. I also loved Grace and Tom, a waitress and loyal customer, they were also pleasant characters. The other characters I think just need a little more development which I hope continues in the next book. I will read the next to see.

    After a bad work scandal, Georgia not only loses her job but al

    After a bad work scandal, Georgia not only loses her job but also her fiancé and friends along with it. With a need to put the pieces of her life back together, she goes to one place that her own mother keeps coming back to regroup - her grandfather's house. Georgia isn't even back in town for a few days when already she is stepping on some people's toes. To make matter's worse, her grandfather's enemy turns up dead soon after and her grandfather ends up the prime suspect in his murder. Unable to sit back and watch as the police work on accusing her Grandy, Georgia takes it into her own hands to snoop around town and get to the bottom of this murder before her Grandy ends up in handcuffs.

    Great start to a new series, I really enjoyed it. Georgia is a new sleuth and she doesn't have it all together and I like that. She is back in small town trying to kind of find her next path in life and while she is doing that, she is taking a break in her grandfathers house. She uses stained glass art as a way to kind of relax, and when an Antique store owner presents her with a fixer up, Georgia is more then glad to undertake the task. It also starts a quick friendship between her and Carrie (the Antique store owner). I don't know much about Stained Glass art, but I found reading about it fascinating, and all the things Georgia had to do with the glass and how you can cut it into different shapes.

    Besides that, I loved how the author uses humor scattered through the book and the wit accompanied it. The storyline was well told and fun to follow as Georgia stumbles through small town life and some 'politics' in order to find who was the real murderer. I also loved the fact that this story features a grandfather instead of typical grandma, it made it exciting and just as fun with the roles reversed. I got a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

    This is a great 1st book in a brand new series. Jennifer writes

    This is a great 1st book in a brand new series. Jennifer writes about stained glass, mixed in with family, love, murder, new friendships, lost love, and a town full of nosy but concerned citizens. Join Georgia and her Grandy as they tackle every day life, mistaken identity, corruption, and a granddaughter (Georgia) who will fight for the truth about her grandpa.
    This is a very enjoyable book and I look forward to reading more of Jennifer's work.

    Ill-Gotten Panes, by Jennifer McAndrews, is a fun and fast-paced

    Ill-Gotten Panes, by Jennifer McAndrews, is a fun and fast-paced cozy mystery. The fictional town of Wenwood, NY, makes for a great setting, with that small-town, everyone-knows-your-business-before-you-do feel. Wenwood is full of interesting characters, many of whom could easily be suspects, and it kept me guessing right to the last few pages. Protagonist Georgia Kelly is smart and snarky and I enjoyed watching her story unfold. I was also fascinated by Georgia's hobby of working with stained glass, which is something I like to look at, but know nothing about. I look forward to the next mystery in this series! And I also really want a kitten now.
