Katherine Hall Page has delighted readers with her mysteries featuring the indomitable Faith Fairchild, professional caterer and amateur detective in quaint Aleford, Massachusetts. This time out, the crime occurs too close to home -- Faith's own home! She becomes the latest victim in a rash of neighborhood burglaries when thieves break in and clear out all her jewelry and silver. Undaunted by skeptical police, Faith sets out to find her precious belongings by figuring out how the break-ins are linked, plunging headlong into the complicated maze of New England's lucrative antiques business. Before long, she finds herself in the middle of a ring of scheming dealers who prefer theft to auctions and who aren't averse to murder if the price is right.

Boasting a popular, plucky heroine, deft plotting, and witty, suspenseful prose, The Body in the Bookcase draws on Page's real-life experience with a break-in at her home. And as Faith prepares a lavish feast for finicky Stephanie Bullock's wedding, Page showcases more of the delicious recipes her readers have come to adore.

Stretched almost to the limit by the capricious demands of a Boston Brahmin bride-to-be, caterer and minister's wife, Faith Fairchild, faces real tragedy when she discovers the body of an elderly friend. Sarah Winslow had apparently surprised burglars ransacking her Aleford, Massachusetts, house. No sooner has Sarah been laid to rest than the Fairchilds find themselves the next target -- the parsonage is stripped of all their most precious possessions. Devastated and furious, Faith takes action, scouring pawnshops, antique marts, and auctions. As she turns up some of their stolen property, she is drawn onto a dangerous path of larceny and corruption in New England's venerable antique business -- a path that soon leads Faith straight to a killer!
