Cozy Mystery Review ~ HIGH STRUNG by Janice Peacock

High Strung (Glass Bead Mystery Series, #1)
by: Janice Peacock
Series: Glass Bead Mystery
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Release Date: August 31, 2015
Source: Publisher ~ Booktrope Publishing

After inheriting a house in Seattle, Jax O'Connell is living the life of her dreams as a glass beadmaker and jewelry designer. When she gets an offer to display her work during a bead shop’s opening festivities, it's an opportunity Jax can't resist—even though Rosie Perez, the store's owner, is the surliest person Jax has ever met.

The weekend’s events become a tangled mess when a young beadmaker is found dead nearby and several oddball bead enthusiasts are suspects. Jax must string together the clues to clear her friend Tessa's name—and do it before the killer strikes again.

High Strung can best be described as cutesy.  I knew what it was about from the description but it took almost half way through the book to get to the murder taking place.  The rest was slapstick and stilly with other mundane bits thrown in with Jax's wonderfully crazy neighbor to her overprotective best friend.  I wasn't impressed with the writing or the story line and probably wouldn't recommend it if anyone asked unless they had nothing better to read.
