9780062326515: Small Plates: Short Fiction

Agatha Award winner Katherine Hall Page presents a book of short stories featuring her famed heroine Faith Fairchild.

For years, Katherine Hall Page has delighted readers with her Faith Fairchild series, each book like a delicious, satisfying meal. Now, Page has whipped up a tasty collection of appetizing bites.

In "The Body in the Dunes," Faith's vacation offers more excitement than she and her husband bargained for when a terrified woman knocks on their hotel room door looking to hide from her husband. A case hits close to home in "The Proof is Always in the Pudding," when Faith investigates a generations-old superstition that has been passed down in her husband's family. Faith and her sister, Hope, counsel a bride-to-be suffering a number of alarming "accidents" before the big day in "Across the Pond." In "Sliced," Faith switches from contestant to detective when a killer reality television cooking competition turns deadly.

Small Plates also includes some irresistible standalone treats, including the Agatha Award-winning "The Would-Be Widower," about a husband who longs to be rid of his wife, and "Hiding Places" in which a young wife's new husband may not be all that he appears.

These stories and more will entice Faith Fairchild fans and new readers alike. Filled with the charm, wit, and the appeal of her beloved novels, Small Plates is a feast for every lover of traditional mysteries.
