    • Abstract:
      Summary: For the first time in years, Faith Fairchild has time for herself. Her husband Tom is spending days on the other side of the island using a friend's enhanced WiFi for a project; their son, Ben, after his first year in college, is studying abroad for the summer; and their daughter Amy is working at the old Laughing Gulls Lodge, now a revamped conference center. Faith is looking forward to some projects of her own. Her friend Sophie Maxwell is also spending the summer on Sanpere Island, hoping for distractions from her worries that she isn't yet pregnant. And the daughter of Faith's good friend Pix Miller is getting married to a wonderful guy . . . with a less-than-wonderful mother. Between keeping Sophie's spirits up and Pix's blood pressure down, Faith has her hands full. And that's before a body with a mysterious tattoo and connections far away from small Sanpere Island appears in the Lily Pond.

Vacationing in Maine has been a Fairchild family tradition through Faith and Tom's entire married life, but this year offers a special treat: with Tom on sabbatical from the church to work on a novel, the family will be able to spend an entire summer on Sanpere Island—until a mix of murder and wedding bells disrupt the normally serene calm of Penobscot Bay. Trouble arrives when Faith finds a dead body at the bottom of the local swimming pond, and then another body turns up, seemingly caught in a lobster trap. Meanwhile, Faith has her hands full helping her friend Pix Miller plan her upcoming nuptials while dealing with her in-law issues. Will Faith, the amateur sleuth, solve the murders while keeping the wedding on track? Fans of the long-running series will enjoy this twenty-fifth installment, which is filled, as usual, with tasty recipes. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

It's an unusual summer for caterer Faith Fairchild. While she and husband Tom are spending it on their beloved Sanpere Island, ME, he's working on a book on one side of the island, and she has time for her friends on the other. Their daughter, Amy, is laboring for long hours in the kitchen at a new conference center. Faith's worrywart friend, Pix Miller, is planning daughter Samantha's wedding, and all of Pix's worst nightmares come true when Samantha's future mother-in-law unexpectedly shows up with over-the-top plans. Faith's quiet summer blows up when she discovers a body in her favorite pond. Then she and Tom find another body. Both victims have a tattoo in common, as well as connections to a town in the drug chain that extends from Colombia to Maine. The vivid summer island lifestyle, intended to be family-oriented, turns dark with the interference of opioids, and an addiction that hits close to home. The 25th outing for Faith Fairchild, following The Body in the Casket, is marked by a celebration of family and friends for fans of the series. VERDICT Traditional yet timely, this mystery also confronts the opioid crisis head-on in a dramatic, disturbing way. [See Prepub Alert, 11/5/18.]—Lesa Holstine, Evansville Vanderburgh P.L., IN

In Agatha winner Page's tantalizing 25th Faith Fairchild mystery (after 2017's The Body in the Casket), plans for a relaxing summer on Maine's Sanpere Island quickly go awry when caterer Faith and friend Sophie Maxwell find the body of an unknown man with an unusual tattoo floating in a pond. The death is only the beginning of trouble for the usually peaceful community. Also disrupting the peace are Pix and Sam Miller's new neighbors from hell, the Cranes, who are unlawfully cutting down trees on their property with loud chainsaws. Meanwhile, Pix and Sam have an uninvited guest, Alexandra Kohn, a high society snob and their daughter's future mother-in-law. Sophie's mother, Babs Harrington, one of society's grande dames, deals with the imperious Alexandra, while the Millers battle it out with the Cranes. The discovery of another body raises the stakes, and Faith once again turns amateur sleuth. This long-running traditional mystery series is still as fresh as a cool pitcher of Faith's strawberry shrub. Agent: Faith Hamlin, Sanford J. Greenburger Assoc. (May)
