Author: Katherine Page. As with other books in the Faith Fairchild series, one of the graces of the novel is the real portrait of New England life. 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. Katherine Hall Page won an Agatha Award for her first Faith Fairchild mystery, The Body in the Belfry, and since that debut she has developed a rich cast of characters around her beloved amateur sleuth.

Katherine Hall Page has delighted readers with her mysteries featuring the indomitable Faith Fairchild, professional caterer and amateur detective in quaint Aleford, Massachusetts. This time out, the crime occurs too close to home -- Faith's own home! She becomes the latest victim in a rash of neighborhood burglaries when thieves break in and clear out all her jewelry and silver. Undaunted by skeptical police, Faith sets out to find her precious belongings by figuring out how the break-ins are linked, plunging headlong into the complicated maze of New England's lucrative antiques business. Before long, she finds herself in the middle of a ring of scheming dealers who prefer theft to auctions and who aren't averse to murder if the price is right.

Boasting a popular, plucky heroine, deft plotting, and witty, suspenseful prose, The Body in the Bookcase draws on Page's real-life experience with a break-in at her home. And as Faith prepares a lavish feast for finicky Stephanie Bullock's wedding, Page showcases more of the delicious recipes her readers have come to adore.

I don't understand how anybody could write such an unlikable heroine and still sell books. Well, I bought the whole series before discovering how much I despise Faith. She absolutely personifies everything I despise. Hung up on THINGS, has to have big name brand clothes, only the best of foods, etc. She gives what we call in the south "stuck up" a whole new meaning. The husband is hardly ever mentioned which is a good thing I guess since he is a minister. Not a very bright one apparently since he married Faith based on sex appeal for sure because she certainly has no good qualities and is less suited to be a minister's wife than I am. Some of these books that don't feature Faith as much are pretty good mysteries. One thing about Faith which is refreshing. When she gets all her precious possessions stolen, you're glad, when her life is threatened, you hope they do kill her off.

Light hearted mystery. Death but no graphic details. Story line is good. I alternate Page's books with those by John Sandford or Jonathan Kellerman.

Think this series does keep getting better, the characters richer and the emotions more real. There is genuine outrage at the violation of one's home, especially when it causes death. Faith Fairchild outdoes Nancy Drew in her search for justice.

Love all her books!

Good read - been catching up her earlier books. Enjoying my time

I have not read this series in order, but after reading the first and last books have jumped into the middle.

I liked the setting, which is familiar, but the story was a bit far-fetched. I couldn't quite accept that Faith was able to find a few of her stolen items so quickly and buy them back.

The parts about the wedding were funny and believable. The ending was a surprise. I had no idea who the guilty person was.

Good reading for a rainy day, but not her best.

I have just re-read this book and liked it better the second time. I think that Faith is still too good to be true, but this is fiction after all. I liked the explanations of the antique business.

I've read most of the books in the series. I think having children complicates Faith's life, but as they grow older she has more time for her adventures.

THE BODY IN THE BOOKCASE is fun. It's very reminiscent of the Diana Mott Davidson culinary mysteries -- and not just because of the recipes. The style is very similar. I'm not sure which number this is in the Faith Fairchild series, but it's copyrighted 1998. And it's my first. It's about the theft of antiques, and one dead body leads to another as our protagonist tries to recover some of her stolen property. The characters are fun and believable. The author creates no sense of place at all, geographically, but does create a sense of community. Not the most satisfying mystery I've ever read, but entertaining.
I'm in possesion of two different versions of this book. To help you with your purchasing decision, here's a comparison: One has a green cover with a gold letter opener. This is an Avon Twilight book, first printed in 1999. At the end it has excerpts of about two pages each from five other mystery series. The other is an Avon Book, first printed March 2001. It has a gray cover with red and black letters. It has larger print (but not "large print"), so the book is thicker. It has excerpts of about two pages each from nine other books in this same series.
The Epilogue stunk--not sure what that was about. I liked this one a lot though because there wasn't as much irrelevant info. and cooking nonsense, although the police were kind of stupid in this which was annoying. One of the better ones in the series though, which is sad and says a lot about the series considering I've still only given it 2 stars.

Note: I've read this entire series up to The Body in the Attic: A Faith Fairchild Mystery (Faith Fairchild Mysteries), and the best rating I've given any of them is 2 stars, which is sad and says a lot about the series. I kept reading because it really has potential but it never lives up to it, so save yourself the trouble and agony and try a a different series, such as Carolyn Hart's Death on Demand (Death on Demand Mysteries, No. 1) series, most of which are fun and enjoyable, or stop after The Body in the Cast: A Faith Fairchild Mystery, which was probably the best of the series. That's my recommendation, anyway.
