I was invited to read Many-Colored Glass by Theresa Jenner Garrido, by inkspand in exchange for an honest review.
Grace decides she needs to make some changes and leaves her job and small apartment. She moves to help her friend Karen and her husband Ron run their bed and breakfast.
One of the first days she is there she is asked by Karen to deliver a pie to the minister. Expecting to see an old man Grace is surprised to find he IS the minister, only after she admonishes him for putting his dirty fingers in the minister’s pie.
Grace begins the book with insecurities. She had been in a car accident ten years before. A drunk driver crossed the median and changed her life forever. She began to think no one wold ever lover her, they could only feel pity and she was a burden. Since the age of thirteen she had become very self-sufficient and felt the need to do everything for herself. Throughout the story she begins to see herself in a different way.
The surprise, for me, was the under-story of murder of local women, some still in high school. I was completely surprised when teh murderer is revealed. There were several suspects that were very credible. I never saw the ending, but it made perfect sense.
I would purchase this book if it was offered as an ebook. It was an easy five stars. It was very well written, took me on a surprise mystery ride and I hope there will be further adventures with Grace, Angus, and the rest of the group from Pelican’s Perch.
