Thirty-four, Santa Cruz County Law Librarian Pat Pirard is living her perfect life. She has a job she loves, she’s just purchased her dream car, and she is almost over being dumped by her long term boyfriend. But her thirty-fifth birthday marks the end of life as she knows it, and Pat has to reinvent herself. As a birthday present, Pat’s best friend enrolls her in a glass flower making class. She learns a lot in the class, but she never expects her final lesson will be all about murder.

I just finished a blog tour for The Glass House. Here's what the reviewers said about the book:
Readers from the Santa Cruz area will enjoy the amount of local color dripped throughout the pages of the book . . . This is a series that I am looking forward to continuing. ~I Read What You Write
The mystery behind Garryn’s death was impressive . . . The romance angle was a nice inclusion to the story . . . The Glass House is an entertaining read. ~The Book Decoder
The mystery is riddled with various motives and entertaining suspects just quirky enough to create a well-plotted mystery anchored in doubt that has to be read to the end in order to find out who the culprit really is. ~That’s What She’s Reading
The mystery kept me on my toes as I couldn’t figure out who was the killer. There are several key suspects but I couldn’t put my finger on any of them to be the killer or for what reason. ~Storeybook Reviews This was a great one! I couldn't put it down. Nancy Lynn Jarvis did a great job of weaving a story together and developing the characters. ~My Reading Journeys Smart, clever, and witty – with a dash of romance – The Glass House is truly a delightful read. ~Reading is My SuperPower
