Suspense / Mystery
by Bob Walch
Marking the 20th installment of the very popular Faith Fairchild
series, this suspense novel takes a step back and returns to Faith's
early life as a New York City caterer. We are back in the 1990s
and Faith Sibley is leading the good life with her own successful
business and a cozy apartment.
Then the young woman meets the handsome, charming Reverend Thomas
Fairchild and her existence is turned topsy-turvy. Since she is
the daughter and granddaughter of clergymen, Faith doesn't really
want to marry a minister but it is love at first sight.
Of course, there are complications before the couple can wed.
First, Faith is not warmly embraced by one member of Thomas' New
England family. Then there is an issue of the brickwork that mysteriously
keeps falling off her uncle's Long Island mansion where the wedding
will be held. For some reason it tumbles down when the young bride
is in the vicinity!
Other "distractions" include the fact that someone seems
to be trying to derail Faith's sister's financial career and Faith's
new assistant seems to have some interesting family skeletons in
the closet that date back to her family in Italy.
The path to the altar nearly turns into to a dead-end, when it
appears someone is trying to make sure the bride never ties the
knot. Not only are the wedding plans methodically sabotaged, Faith
seems to be the target of someone who wants her festivities to end
in the graveyard rather than the honeymoon suite. On the other hand,
Faith may not be the intended victim here. You know how odd some
family gatherings can get!
If you have followed this character, you'll definitely want to
read this latest suspense yarn. On the other hand, if Faith Fairchild
is a total stranger, what better time than now to make her introduction!
