To solve her father’s murder and save the family-owned glass shop, Savannah Webb must shatter a killer’s carefully constructed façade. . .

After Savannah’s father dies unexpectedly of a heart attack, she drops everything to return home to St. Petersburg, Florida, to settle his affairs–including the fate of the beloved, family-owned glass shop. Savannah intends to hand over ownership to her father’s trusted assistant and fellow glass expert, Hugh Trevor, but soon discovers the master craftsman also dead of an apparent heart attack.

As if the coincidence of the two deaths wasn’t suspicious enough, Savannah discovers a note her father left for her in his shop, warning her that she is in danger. With the local police unconvinced, it’s up to Savannah to piece together the encoded clues left behind by her father. And when her father’s apprentice is accused of the murders, Savannah is more desperate than ever to crack the case before the killer seizes a window of opportunity to cut her out of the picture. . .



Cheryl Hollon now writes full-time after she left an engineering career of designing and building military flight simulators in amazing countries such as England, Wales, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, and India. Fulfilling the dream of a lifetime, she combines her love of writing with a passion for creating glass art.

I love reading "craft" mysteries, especially when the art or craft of the setting is something of which I know nothing, and will likely never practice. Like armchair traveling, a lifelong habit, I vicariously try out a new craft (or a new location), and am educated in the process: Lifelong Learning. So I was really excited to discover debut author Cheryl Hollon's first mystery, PANE AND SUFFERING. I learned a lot about the craft of stained glass, I enjoyed the virtual tour of St. Petersburg (FL), and I enjoyed a tautly constructed mystery with a heart-in-mouth denouement--an all-round winning combination!


  1. I've put this book on my wish list.

  2. Ah, I appreciate the candor of another armchair trades person! As it is also how I get to learn more about crafts that are interesting but beyond my skill set. Sounds like an interesting story!
