The Body in the Boudoir by Katharine Hall Page is the twentieth in the Faith Fairchild Mysteries. If possible, every one gets just a bit better. I, for one, am a big fan of Page.

It's 1990 Manhattan. Faith has just catered an event and is winding down the evening. She meets a man who almost literally sweeps her off her feet. He has just a few flaws. But they are big ones. He lives in a cold state in New England. He is a pastor. Faith swore she would never live in the north or marry a religious. Her father is a pastor and she feels she has had enough of being the pastor's kid. But life has a funny way of changing your mind. It's called love.

Her great-uncle insists her wedding is to be at his estate on Long Island. But before this can happen, Faith finds a body in her great-aunt's boudoir. After several harrowing escapes from nasty accidents, Faith is sure someone is out to kill her. The intended victim and the culprit will surprise you. I hadn't a clue.

A bonus in this delightful novel is the menus and recipes listed. The foods sound wonderful. And if I knew that Have Faith, the name of her catering firm, was in fact real, I would head to Manhattan to partake of some of that scrumptious sounding food. This is a fun read.
