Overview

Agatha Award winner Katherine Hall Page presents a book of short stories featuring her famed heroine Faith Fairchild.

For years, Katherine Hall Page has delighted readers with her Faith Fairchild series, each book like a delicious, satisfying meal. Now, Page has whipped up a tasty collection of appetizing bites.

In The Body in the Dunes, Faith s vacation offers more excitement than she and her husband bargained for when a terrified woman knocks on their hotel room door looking to hide from her husband. A case hits close to home in The Proof is Always in the Pudding, when Faith investigates a generations-old superstition that has been passed down in her husband s family. Faith and her sister, Hope, counsel a bride-to-be suffering a number of alarming accidents before the big day in Across the Pond. In Sliced, Faith switches from contestant to detective when a killer reality television cooking competition turns deadly.

Small Plates also includes some irresistible standalone treats, including the Agatha Award winning The Would-Be Widower, about a husband who longs to be rid of his wife, and Hiding Places in which a young wife s new husband may not be all that he appears.

These stories and more will entice Faith Fairchild fans and new readers alike. Filled with the charm, wit, and the appeal of her beloved novels, Small Plates is a feast for every lover of traditional mysteries."

This story collection offers a tasty introduction to an Agatha Award–winner Page’s popular mystery series that started with 1990’s The Body in the Belfry. Caterer Faith Fairchild, the New England minister’s wife and accidental sleuth who stumbles over bodies on a regular basis, appears in most of the nine selections. Highlights include “Sliced,” about a reality TV cooking challenge; “The Ghost of Winthrop,” which concerns a missing will; and “The Would-Be Widower,” in which a man plots to dispose of his wife. While these appetizers will whet the appetites of new readers, series fans may find themselves feeling hungry for a full meal. Fortunately, the book ends with a special Christmas novella, “The Two Marys,” whose frightening back story leads to a heartwarming outcome that should send every reader away fully satisfied. As the name of Faith’s catering business reminds us: “Have Faith.” Agent: Faith Hamlin, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (May)
