In this novel, a shady antiques dealer and fix-it man is found wrapped in a quilt and left in the basement of what’s going to be the Fairchilds’ summer cottage on Sanpere Island. The Fairchilds remain stuck in Alesford, so Pix volunteered to oversee construction — and, of course, finds more than she bargained for. Before the summer is over, yet another quilt-wrapped corpse appears, but Pix does yeoman’s work (as always — the book begins with Pix’s husband joke that her epitaph with be “Don’t worry, Pix will do it”) investigating and gets caught with her daughter in a suspenseful situation near the novel’s end. I love Faith, but I didn’t miss her absence at all in this book, thanks to Pix’s good sense and good humor. A great, fun read.
