First Then towards the nd of the book there as one hint which might have been small but for me immediately revealed the real killer The whole Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, explanation behind it felt a bit off The pace didn t uite work and there didn t seemnough progression on the mystery but beside that it didn t feel like much happened ither There was an interesting set up with her now owning the glass shop and slowly getting attached to it and the town but I just didn t feel it Savannah was an okay main character I didn t really feel like we got To Know Her And Because know her and because that it was hard to connect to her or anyone lse in this book for that matter I felt we stayed very distant from the character hearing what went on with
them but never really feeling the motions beside but never really feeling the motions Beside I thought it was a bit weird how Savannah basically runs around telling strangers she just met how her father was killed and sharing the hints he left her with them as well In her situation I am sure I would be a lot of scared and paranoid It just felt like she trusted Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential everyone a bit tooasily specially seeing how her father had just been murdered and the killer could be someone she knewThere is an attempt to build the small town setting but while I liked what we saw it never really came fully alive the side characters were fun but stayed pretty flat There is an attempt at romance but it never really progresses much and I didn t really feel their connection The glass shop setting was interesting and original as a setting There are two or so chapters from the point of view of a police detective but I thought it had worked better if he had chapters or wasn t there at all Now it felt a bit off with how he only had two partly chaptersTo summarize Pane and Suffering was an njoyable book but I also had a lot of issues with it My opinion on this book can best be described as okay The plot and mystery progressed slowly and when a real hint was dropped I immediately figured out who the killer was I wasn t really Humanism engaged in the mystery and in the last few chapter sit suddenly progresses a lot faster compared to the rest of the book I thought thexplanation of the killer and why he did it was a bit weird The subplots didn t uite work for me or made me feel it Savannah was an okay main character but I never really connected or cared about her and I thought she trusted strangers a bit too Smokin' Hot easily There is a small hint at romance building the small town setting and the side character but nothing really came alive for me I did like the glass shop as setting All in all this was an okay cozy mystery nothing really stood out but I didnjoy the read I received a free copy of this book in Placing Memory exchange for an honest review from Kensington and Netgalley This title will be published on September 29 2015The first book in what looks like a promising new series Pane and Suffering was an absorbing book that Injoyed Savannah is a glass blowing artist living in Seattle When her father dies she must return to St Petersburg Florida and wrap up his affairs however another death has her uestioning her father s premature heart attackI really liked the characters Savannah Amanda and Edward were all fun and sensible Amanda was the perfect unashamed friend who had me laughing out loud at some of the things she d say and do I also loved how the author portrayed a character with Asperger s syndrome it was so nice to read about Jacob and I really hope he appears in later booksHowever the book wasn t perfect and the major imperfection was the mystery It might have just been me but I found the mystery to be xtremely transparent and I guessed the killer half way through the book There were almost too many clues and it gave the killer away arly on But I really liked how the author incorporated tons of different codes and cyphers into the storyOverall a very strong start to a new series I really njoyed it With great characters a fun setting and a great use of codes yet a transparent mystery Pane and Suffering gets 45 stars I ll look for the next one Glass blower Savannah Webb shockingly loses the two most important men in her life in only a few days time her dad John Webb and his close friend and associate Hugh Trevor Both were master stained glass craftsmen Her dad s thriving business Webb s Glass Shop is primely located in the Grand Central District of St Petersburg Florida Reeling from both deaths Savannah isn t ready to deal with the offers coming in to buy the store and property In a daze she takes up teaching the beginning stained glass class that Hugh would have taught She meets Edward owner of the Pub next door and Jacob the teenage apprentice her father had told her was brilliant and who suffers with Asperger s Syndrome and severe ast.

The Fiend Next Door entertaining I have read several other cozy mystery series but this series could become one of my favorites I reallynjoyed reading about the art of glass making It was not a concept that I was familiar with I found it very helpful that the author included a glossary for the glass making terms I believe it helps the reader understand the concept better There were several characters that made a difference in the book The main character Savannah Webb seemed very relatable because of the death of her father She displayed her motions in a sincere way and never gave up in searching for her father s killer Officer Boulli was the character that I was the least fond of He did not believe Savannah from the beginning when she felt like there was foul play in the deaths He was portrayed as being a jerk and incompetent Detective Parker believed Savannah from the first doubt she had He never made her feel as if she was crazy for feeling the way she did He was on her side from the beginning The detective was portrayed as a caring person and appreciative of the ffort from Savannah in trying to find the killer Overall I found the characters in the book to be very believable and relatable The plot was very well thought out and kept me interested until the very last page I will definitely be reading from this author starting with the other books in this series I received a copy in பொன்னியின் செல்வன் - புது வெள்ளம் exchange for an honest reviewOne of my goals for this year was to read cozy mysteries so when I came across this cute looking cozy mystery on netgalley I hit reuest immediately Unfortunately the best way to describe my opinion about this book is that it s just okay Nothing really stood out or captured my attention I didnjoy the book but to me it fell a bit flat Pane and Suffering has a fun and original setting in a glass shop which I did like Even though it s a cozy mystery I felt like we got little feel for the small town setting and the mystery didn t really work for meI am still finding my way in this genre but I felt that the mystery had potential The mystery started of pretty interesting with a close and personal death as the main character Savannah her father has died of a heart attack and then his best friend Hugh follows closely Then Savannah finds out a hint that hints to the fact they have been murdered I did like how Savannah notified the police and the police did actually do work on the case Savannah also runs her own investigation following clues left by her father From the start there are uite some possible suspects but the mystery progresses very slow at. To solve her father's murder and save the family owned glass shop Savannah Webb must shatter a killer's carefully constructed façadeAfter Savannah's father dies unexpectedly of a heart attack she drops verything to return home to St Petersburg Florida to settle his affairs including the fate of the beloved family owned glass.
