    This was not the first Faith Fairchild mystery I have read, nor will it be the last. The series includes over twenty titles centered on the caterer and minister's wife, Faith Fairchild, who seems to be quite adept at finding herself in dangerous situations. In the latest volume, she has been chosen to cater a birthday weekend specifically because of her reputation as an amateur sleuth. I have to admit that I do not know the Boston suburbs, so I c...

    There's a certain pleasure in settling down with a Faith Fairchild mystery. You know that Faith, a caterer married to a clergyman (Tom), will find a body, solve a mystery, and do some really good cooking (and provide recipes!). If you haven't read any of these, you won't be hampered by starting here. I've read all of them- amazing how many years I've been reading her!- and while I'll admit some are better than others, they are always well written...

    A New England based whodunit. My first introduction to the character of Faith Fairchild and her amazing sleuthing and catering skills. Felt like I was reading a modern-day Agatha Christie mystery novel. A Broadway mogul receives a ghoulish and very unexpected birthday present. Who and why would anyone give such a ghastly gift to a legendary musical stage luminary? So, the mogul decides to throw himself a party to remember and has hired Mrs. Fairc...

    Faith Fairchild is back with her delightful cozy series. (#24). Faith is a caterer and wife of a minister in small town Massachusetts.This book has her catering a weekend birthday party where the employer says someone is trying to kill him. Faith takes the job and keeps a close eye on the attendees. This book can stand alone but it's wonderful to catch up with the children growing up and the neighbors in Alford. The game Clue threads lightly thro...

    Katherine Hall Page's new book, The Body In The Casket, was a very fast read. I've read some of her other books in this series and enjoyed them. Unfortunately this one was a disappointment. Not including the recipes and authors note at the back, this story is 227 pages long. Of that number only 81 pages was devoted just to the mystery. The rest was about the main character Faith Fairchild and her family, friends and business.I wish the author wou...

    I LIKED THIS BOOK. I HAVE NEVER READ ANY OF HER BOOKS. SHE HAD GOOD CHARACTERS AND HAD A SUBJECT THAT WAS INTERESTING. I WON THIS BOOK AS A GIVEAWAY AND WAS GLAD I DID. I LIKE MYSTERIES AND THIS WAS GOOD.
