Although Faith is the owner of her own catering business, she has gotten the reputation of being an amateur sleuth. So when she took her children to see the Christmas display at the Historical Society, she found a body in a sleigh; a very troubled young woman by the name of Norah whose drug addictions were well known. At first, it appears to have been a routine overdose but Faith is not too sure about that assumption. She takes it on herself to do a little prying into the tragic death. Meanwhile on another part of the Island, on Christmas eve, Mary Bethany finds a new born baby boy in her goat shed. He appears to be well cared for and tucked in a basket with him is a large bag of cash and a note to take good care of him. Mary, local spinster who raises goats and runs a B&B in the tourist season, is stumped as to who would abandon such a beautiful baby and why. Naturally, she turns to Faith to help her solve the puzzle. Now Faith is faced with two mysteries: one of birth and one of death. As in any good cozy, justice will prevail. The enjoyment of the story is the journey to the end. One of the things I really like about Page's writing is how she uses a character other than Faith to narrate parts of the story. In this manner Page manages to flesh out her characters a lot more and also gives the reader a little more back story bit by bit. Another thing I really like is the setting; Maine's rugged, craggy coastline plays a big part in the mystery. I'm a New Englander born and bred and although I no longer live there, the location still draws me in. It's very obvious Page is well acquainted with the area; she has the innate traits of the native New Englanders down to perfection. This book is the 18th in the Faith Fairchild series. Any of these books can be read as a stand- alone novel. At this point, I think I have read all of them. Although I did enjoy this book, I still think The Body in the Ivy is her best. 3.5*** Disclosure: a review copy of this book was provided by Harper Collins.
