Agatha Winning Author
This is the latest review book from Morrow Publishing. It is A Faith Fairchild Mystery written by Katherine Hall Page. She has written 19 novels in this series, and this is my first one. It is titled: The Body in the Boudoir. Since I have not read any of the previous ones, I was a bit leery about jumping right into a series and being lost and confused... I find myself lost and confused quite often in this crazy, wonderful life. Fortunately, this mystery was presented in a flashback where our lady sleuth AKA caterer spins the tale of her engagement and the murders that surrounded it, so I was able to grab some background info on the characters. This novel takes place in the months before New York born Faith is to marry Massachusetts native Tom Fairchild. The wedding is to be held on Faith's wealthy uncle's estate. Strange and bizarre things begin to happen as the nuptial preparations begin ....Faith finds herself the target of someone's wrongdoing. Faith has the habit to be surrounded by mystery and has the instinct to sense things that others overlook. The murder knows she is on to something and wants to put an end to her snooping. The clues are cleverly hidden throughout and keeps you guessing....all the way to the reveal.
Fans of Diane Mott Davidson Goldy the Caterer series will enjoy this mystery series without feeling like it is more of the same.
