I’d give this one 2.5 stars. The mystery was weak, and it wasn’t until two-thirds of the way through that any sleuthing took place. A SHATTERING CRIME begins with the murder of a protester, a man against a new development in town. After that, a big chunk of the book was about Georgia’s relationship dilemmas, her kooky pets, and her stained glass art – which is great! Those kinds of things are what give cozies their personalities. However, I still want the focus of the plot to be solving the murder mystery, which wasn’t the case here. Unfortunately, this mystery just didn’t work for me.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
