The Glass Bead Mystery Series

A Bead in the Hand


A Bead in the Hand, Glass Bead Mystery, Book Two

A bead bazaar turns bizarre when jewelry designer and glass beadmaker Jax O’Connell discovers a body beneath her sales table. Everyone assumes the death of famous bead artist Saundra Jameson is an accident—until homicide detective Tiffany Houston arrives, ready to drag Jax off to jail as her top suspect. Jax and her friend Tessa must scramble to find the killer among the fanatic jewelry shoppers, eccentric vendors, and Saundra’s many enemies.

While trying to solve the mystery, Jax and Tessa have their hands full with a scumbag show promoter, hipsters in love, and a security guard who wants to do more than protect Jax from harm. Adding to the chaos, Jax’s quirky neighbor Val arrives unexpectedly at the dilapidated—and possibly haunted—hotel where they’re staying, and she’s brought trouble with her. Can Jax untangle the clues to find the crafty killer before she’s arrested for murder?
