The Body in the Boudoir: A Faith Fairchild Mystery

Katherine Hall Page. Morrow, $23.99 (272p) ISBN 978-0-06-206548-3

Set in 1990 New York City, Agatha-winner Page’s satisfying 20th Faith Fairchild mystery (after 2011’s The Body in the Gazebo) flashbacks to the whirlwind romance that led to Faith Sibley’s engagement to the Rev. Tom Fairchild. Despite the carefully laid plans for a perfect wedding, someone appears to be making attempts on Faith’s life—and Faith has no idea who it is. Could the person determined to do her in, heaven forbid, be a Sibley family member or one of Tom’s disapproving Massachusetts relations? Meanwhile, her sister, Hope, asks Faith to help her discover who’s stealing her business clients. In addition, Faith’s former employee, Francesca, appears to want her family in Italy to believe she’s living in England, not New York, so there’s plenty to distract Faith before the wedding—if there is a wedding. Cozy fans will be enthralled. Agent: Faith Hamlin, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (May)
