You know something of what you're getting into when you open this book and look at the epigraphs:
Forged in fire, neither liquid nor solid, capable of transmitting or reflecting light, glass is proof that there is magic in the world. - From the introductory notes of the Catalogue of the Leabrook Glass Museum by Eugenia Swift, Museum Director
The finest glass is a glass that's filled with really good beer - Cyrus Chandler Colfax, Private Investigator
And these are our two main characters, she's going to Adam Daventry's house to catalogue his collection to prepare it to include in their collection. He's been asked to investigate Daventry's death, who fell down a set of stairs. Unbeknownst to Eugenia he also suspects that a rare piece of glass, the Hades Cup, a cup that his former firm was supposed to deliver, however his former partner disappeared and his wife ended up dead. Close proximity of the two main characters causes them to find more regard for each other and they find that while they are quite opposite in many ways, they're quite similar in others.
It's a romance, you know what to expect there but the thriller end of things had a lot of twists and turns and kept me guessing.
A fun light read.
