Off the Beadin' Path: A Humorous Cozy Mystery (Glass Bead Mystery Series Book 3) Kindle Edition
"I had a couple laugh out loud moments thanks to the small town sheriff, including not one but two clever escapes, and again due to one very lovable basset hound. The entire story was an immense delight. The pages flew and I reached the end too soon." --Lori Caswell, Vine Voice Reviewer
"This book is full of colorful well-written characters. It is easy to see why this series is so popular with readers."
-Book Review from I Read What You Write
"There are many twists and turns in the plot which keep the reader on their toes! I could hardly put the book down!"
"Janice Peacock captures the reader's attention & keeps it beginning to end! It's an interesting whodunit with an absolutely unique murder. --Amazon Reviewer--This text refers to the paperback edition.

This is the first book in the series that I have read, though I have also read the Valentine mini-mystery, “Be Still My Beading Heart.” I have to admit the back and forth between possible boyfriends gets a little old for my taste, (it is possible that knowing more back story would make me a little more sympathetic) and it could have been a little longer, as I finished it in less than 90 minutes. Still the little secrets and innuendos among friends and classmates makes this story fun to read and I really didn’t catch on to the killer until the end. Getting me to chase a red herring or three is always a plus for me. Jax and her friends are people I would choose to spend time with again.
"During our disastrous trip to Portland, Tessa’s daughters had fought like wild animals at home, causing her so much anguish that she couldn’t enjoy her time at the Bead Fun sale. That, and the fact that I’d found a dead body, had made it a particularly stressful weekend. With her kids at camp and her husband on a fishing trip, I hoped Tessa would have a distraction-free week taking a glassblowing class with me."
Ominious narrator voice: it would not be a distraction-free week.
Reviewer voice: thank heavens, glassblowing will actually mean glassblowing because the author knows glass.
As with the other books in this series, glass is the main, and sometimes best character. Jax keeps being in the wrong place at the wrong time to discover and help solve a murder case, along with a super-quirky group of recurring characters, and a few new ones to give multiple options for the whodunit aspect.
The murder weapon was obvious early on; the rest of the mystery unfolded at a bit of a frantic pace, complete with too-convenient coincidences. Not a complaint as much as a hallmark of cozy mysteries.

She wasn't expecting him to be murdered!
Jax puts on her sleuthing hat as she can't get away with glass blowing & it turns out she's a better sleuth than glass blower.
Was ok as a freebie read.
Don't think I'm to bothered about buying the next book in the series.🌈🐞
