Overview

Glass beadmaker Jax O'Connell and her friend Tessa have no idea what challenges await them when they take a glassblowing class with Marco De Luca, a famous Italian glass artist—and infamous lothario.

After the first night of class, Tessa sees a body through the rain-streaked window of the studio. The next morning there's no sign of Marco, and one of the studio owners is also missing. The local sheriff isn't taking the disappearances seriously, but Tessa knows what she saw. To complicate matters, Officer Shaw and Detective Grant are both vying for Jax's attention as she tracks down clues in a small town that's been keeping more than one secret.

Jax and Tessa must face their fears to find the body and uncover the killer before another life is shattered.

Meet 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, launching a new cozy mystery series featuring glass beadmaker Jax O'Connell. When Janice isn't writing about glass artists-turned-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 the Corning Museum of Glass, the Glass Museum of Tacoma, WA, and in private collections worldwide. Janice lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and has a studio full of beads...lots and lots of beads.

The Glass Bead Mystery series just keeps getting better! Each installment out does the one before, something I would have thought to be impossible. I have followed this series since the first book, HIGH STRUNG. I enjoy everything about it. Author Janice Peacock’s knowledge of the art of glass making really shines through. It’s very clear that she loves what she does, both bead making, and writing. You’re not going to put this book down once you get started. Well written, witty, and informative, OFF THE BEADIN’ PATH is an excellent and unpredictable mystery that will keep you in your seat until you have read the last word. I certainly didn’t plan to read it in one sitting, but I should have known I would after reading the other books. If you’re already a fan of this series, you have got to check out this great addition. If the Glass Bead Mysteries are new to you, you can read OFF THE BEADIN’ PATH, and not feel lost, but I do suggest you pick up the first two books, and the short story. You’ll be happy you did!

This is by far the best in the series, the story is interesting, and well told. I love reading about glass, and learning something new. Tessa and Jax are a hoot, their friendship is fun to observe, and I love the funny turns of phrase and observations. And who wouldn't love a wacky cookie-supplying neighbor?! Settle down for a cozy read, I'm already looking forward to the next book. This is an honest review in exchange for a free copy.
