Synopsis

Massachusetts minister’s wife, caterer, and sometime amateur sleuth Faith Fairchild returns in The Body in the Boudoir, the twentieth installment in the Agatha Award-winning mystery series by Katherine Hall Page that provides mystery, heart, wit, suspense, and mouthwatering recipes aplenty.

Page turns back the clock this time to 1990, as a young Faith Sibley prepares to wed the love of her life, Thomas Fairchild…if she can survive a malefactor who’s trying to disrupt the ceremony by doing away with the bride. Fans of cozy culinary mysteries, like the bestselling Goldy Schultz novels of Diane Mott Davidson, will adore the tasty mayhem Katherine Hall Page cooks up in her Boudoir.

Includes recipes, menus, drink concoctions and much charm, but a denouement so silly that it leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

This book offers us a romance and mystery (actually two mysteries) in one fascinating story.

It is quite a departure from previous books, and not particularly in a good way. The tone of the book is a bit melancholy and the plot lines...never quite fit together.

"The Body in the Boudoir” is a rollicking adventure filled with intrigue and suspense — and a lot of humor — as Page takes her readers back in time to the beginning of Faith Fairchild’s sleuthing career.

Atmosphere, characters, and—of course—foods of all types abound in this book and I will certainly be tasting a few of Page’s other books after this first foray into her work.
