4.5 out of 5 stars.
Welcome! Today I’m hosting another blog tour stop via Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours. Today’s post is about Cheryl Hollon’s newest book, Etched in Tears. I really enjoyed this book. I feel like the series is just getting better and better.
Celebrated glass artist Dennis Lansing is returning to St. Petersburg, Florida, for an exhibit at the world-renowned Salvador Dali Museum. His unique style of embedding document images in his art is at the vanguard of contemporary glasswork. But as Savannah’s first boyfriend and a former apprentice to her father, Dennis’s return home has her reflecting on the past–a trip down memory lane that takes a dark turn when Dennis is found murdered at the museum with an old reference letter from her father in his pocket. A search through her father’s records sheds new light on Dennis’s history, but it seems his present life wasn’t so transparent either. Now, with a gallery of suspects to consider, it’s up to Savannah to figure out who fits the mold of a murderer.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I love Savannah and Edward and all the other characters in these books. They’re well-rounded, developed, complex characters who are just a lot of fun.
The plot in this one was fascinating. I wondered about the villain but I never settled on him until just before Savannah figured it out. The information about the Dali museum was interesting and added to the story line quite nicely.
I’m also happy to see Savannah and Edward’s relationship moving forward. I’m having a hard time finding words to express how much I enjoyed this book without spoilers, so I’m just going to say – read it and enjoy it too!
