Mystery Novel: The Body in the Boudoir by Katherine Hall Page

I can't believe I haven't seen any of Katherine Hall Paige's mystery books before. The Body in the Boudoir is the twentieth in the Faith Fairchild award-winning series, which began with The Body in the Belfry, a book that received an Agatha Award for best first mystery.

The Body in the Boudoir was published in May 2012 but is set in 1990 when amateur sleuth Faith Fairchild is still a New Yorker, before she married and went to live in a small village in Massachusetts, the setting of the first book.

I think all the Faith Fairchild mysteries can be read separately from the others, so I'm starting with this latest one.

About the book: In spite of being overwhelmed by her decision to leave her home in the Big Apple and the multitude of tasks involved in "getting" married, Faith has no doubts about being married to her beloved Tom. But someone out there is dead set on making sure that she doesn't reach the altar. Before it's too late, she needs to figure out who is trying to sabotage the wedding--by eliminating the bride.(publisher's description).

The Body in the Boudoir: A Faith Fairchild Mystery by Katherine Hall Page is a hardcover publication of William Morrow, released May 1, 2012. I received a review copy from the publisher.


  1. I love that you can read each of these as a standalone, and that if you love them, there are so many more to get involved in!

  2. This sounds like a terrific mystery series. I hope you'll enjoy this book, Harvee. :)

  3. Well, you're brave to jump in at that number but as for me...we all know that I find it extremely hard to read out-of-order. So, I'm going to see if my library has book 1!!!

  4. Oh, I love a good mystery! Restraining myself from reading the latest Louise Penny until I can get sone stuff done. I'm eager to hear how you like this one...a whole new series would be a dream!

  5. I just started this one....I thoroughly enjoyed a couple of the earlier ones, and I agree...I don't think they need to be read in order. They're nice cozy mysteries.


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
