The Body in the BookcaseBook - 1998
Caterer-detective Faith Fairchild takes on a case involving a ring of antiques dealers behind a string of burglaries in her quaint Massachusetts town
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!
Caterer and minister's wife Faith Fairchild has her hands full preparing a posh wedding for a spoiled bride-to-be, but when her dear friend Sarah Winslow is murdered in an apparent burglary, she investigates, uncovering unsavory goings-on in the antique business. Reissue.
