he Body in the Gallery
is Katherine Hall Page's seventeenth in her Faith Fairchild series. Her readers have watched Faith's kids Ben and Amy grow up, heard her minister husband Tom question his calling, and reveled as her career as a chef grew. Let's face it. They are part of the family now. Or we are part of their family.
hichever. It's always good to read of Faith's latest brush with the law. She seems to have a penchant for finding dead bodies. This time, she is catering for an art museum shindig when a young woman is found dead – submerged in a giant fish tank! Novel. To top it off, no one recognized her – or said they didn't. And her hair had been shaved off. Bizarre.
uspects pop up around every turn. If that's not enough, Ben is going round the bend. Middle school is maybe proving too much for him, and he has a fight with his best friend. If you're not into the mystery deep enough – and why not, I'd like to ask? – the food described is enough to keep the appetite intrigued. Recipes are found at the back of this delightful cozy. A good read.
