The Body in the Snowdrift (Faith Fairchild Mysteries) (Mass Market Paperbound)
Caterer Faith Fairchild has a bad feeling about her father-in-law's decision to celebrate his seventieth birthday with a family reunion ski week at the Pine Slopes resort in Vermont -- the Fairchilds' favorite getaway since Faith's husband, the Reverend Thomas Fairchild, was a toddler. At first her unease seems unfounded -- until Faith comes across a corpse on one of the cross-country trails, the apparent victim of a heart attack.
Then one catastrophe follows another: the mysterious disappearance of the Pine Slopes' master chef, a malicious prank at the sports center, a break-in at the Fairchild condo, the sabotage of a chairlift. And when a fatal "accident" with the snow-making machines stains the slopes blood red, Faith realizes she'll have to work fast to solve a murderous puzzle -- because suddenly not only are the reunion and the beloved resort's future in jeopardy . . . but Faith's life is as well.
“[A]n attractive setting, great characters, good food and murder most foul... A perfect Faith concoction.”
“[W]ell told...close, careful observations of the complicated dynamics within large families...[Page] at her solid best.”
-New York Times Book Review
“[W]ill leave her readers guessing until the very end and wanting another serving of Faith Fairchild.”
-Bangor Daily News (Maine)
“Fun for all readers, and some great recipes, too.”
-The Stuart News (Stuart, Florida)
