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 ecides that a change of scenery will help piece her life back together. But escaping to her grandmother ’ 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 reaso that the main suspect is the deceased ’ s biggest adversary—her grandfather. Now, to eliminate the stain from her grandy ’ s record, Georgia will have to figure out who in town was willing to ill to eep the renovation project alive, before omeone else is permanently cut out of the picture…

Wenwood wasn ’ t Georgia ’ s first choice of where to go; she oved the big city but needed an affordable place to live and re-group until she found th new place to call her work home.

Georgia makes interesting new friends through the course of he nvestigation, including one lady who had been an adversary since high school days.This first novel in the outstanding new Stained-Glass Mystery series delivers a fast-paced cozy mystery with an eclectic cast of characters in charming hometown setting.

I truly enjoy both Georgia and Carrie – brave, loyal, and hard-working ladies but also fun-loving and open to new friendships.

Her love and oyalty to Grandy is admirable, and her frustrated adoration of her tiny kitten is at times all too funny, unless one of my cats has provided a new scratch on me from an errant claw.The setting is beautifully described without being tedious, right down to the etails of the Wenwood bricks and brickworks.I would highly recommende this book to young adults and adults of all ages who enjoy cozy mysteries, and I hope his series enjoys a long run!
