3.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for fans of the series..., June 15, 2011
This review is from: The Body in the Gazebo: A Faith Fairchild Mystery (Faith Fairchild Mysteries) (Hardcover)
This book is the nineteenth Faith Fairchild mystery. I really enjoyed it, but I know I would have gotten more out of this if it hadn't been the first Faith Fairchild book I read. I was meeting these characters for the first time, getting to know them, trying to remember who was who. Long standing fans of the series would be able to dive right in.

Faith's best friend Pix is out of town for her son's wedding preparation. Faith helps to take care of Pix's mother Ursula. Ursula asks Faith to secretly solve a mystery from back in 1929. She especially wants to keep it a secret from Pix.

While Ursula is slowly telling her story, Faith and her husband, the Reverend Fairchild, are dealing with the theft of $10,000 from the church fund. Many accusing fingers are pointed right at her husband. She needs to solve this in order to save his reputation.

There are smaller subplots including a secret pregnancy, and a mystery involving Pix, who meets her future in laws for the first time and recognizes someone from the past.

This was a comfortable cozy mystery, and although it was not the best place to start, I recommend it for fans of the series.
