When a wealthy theater owner is killed by a falling art glass chandelier, glass beadmaker Jax O’Connell’s boyfriend, Detective Zachary Grant, quickly determines it was no accident. Jax and her friend Tessa try to carry on with a charity fashion gala at the theater, but with only a few days before the big event, they have to scramble to keep things from falling apart. The emcee quits, and to make matters worse, Tessa’s daughters are suspects in the murder. As the chaos unfolds, Jax discovers new suspects at every turn, including an edgy glass blower, an agoraphobic socialite, and a hunky former-cop-turned-actor. Can Jax piece together the clues to find the killer and uncover the dark secrets behind the victim’s family or will it be curtains for her?

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 odd, and often humorous, characters in the murder mystery books she loved to read. Inspired by that experience, she combined her two passions and wrote High Strung: A Glass Bead Mystery, the first book in a new cozy mystery series featuring glass beadmaker Jax O’Connell.

When Janice Peacock isn’t writing about glass artists who are amateur detectives, she makes glass beads using a torch, designs one-of-a-kind jewelry and makes sculptures using hot glass. An award-winning artist, her work has been exhibited internationally and is in the permanent collections of several museums. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, two cats, and seven chickens. She has a studio full of beads…lots and lots of beads.

Christie’s Review


Jax has been roped into helping with an auction and fashion show by her best friend, Tessa, certainly not expecting to be dragged into a murder investigation. Frankie Lawton, a world famous jewelry designer and who helped launch Jax’s career is the Master of Ceremonies, but his attitude is terrible. Then, the wealthy theater owner, Austin Greer,  is found dead.Tessa and Jax try to go on with the auction and fashion show. However, they get dragged into the mystery when Tessa’s daughters become suspects. Jax can’t stay out of it now. There is no shortage of suspects as more secrets come to light.

I loved the characters, Jax and Zachary. Janice Peacock continues to develop them with each book she writes. I love the relationships between the primary and secondary characters, and I especially love Gumdrop and Ginger.

There are so many cozy mysteries out there to read, and I love so many of them. However, I find this one unique as she is a jewelry maker and glassblower. I greatly enjoyed how the author gave us details about what Jax really does. I found it to be very interesting.

If you are looking for a cozy mystery with great characters, a light romance, and a great storyline and mystery, give this series a try!!!!
