"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

About 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 quirky and often humorous characters in the murder mystery books she loves to read. Inspired by that experience, she combined her two passions and wrote High Strung, the first book in the Glass Bead Mystery Series featuring glass beadmaker Jax O'Connell. Janice has continued the series with A Bead in the Hand, and Be Still My Beading Heart, and Off the Beadin' Path. When she 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. 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, two cats, and an undisclosed number chickens. She has a studio full of beads...lots and lots of beads.
