From Publishers Weekly
Agatha Award–winner Page pays clever homage to Christie's Ten Little Indians in the 16th outing of her Faith Fairchild series, which finds the amateur sleuth trapped on a remote New England island with a group of imperiled weekend guests. Faith is invited to the island by reclusive bestselling author, Barbara Bailey Bishop, presumably to cater the gathering, but Faith soon suspects that she and the other guests, the hostess's former classmates from Seven Sisters–style Pelham College, have all been invited under false pretenses. Flashbacks to the class of '70s school days reveal that Barbara's twin sister, Helene "Prin" Prince, fell from a campus tower the night before graduation—an apparent suicide. After a northeaster cuts off all access to the mainland, one of the guests is found dead. As the death toll mounts, Faith seeks answers and wonders if she will be the next victim. Readers of the series will relish this addition; Christie fans will enjoy an engaging tribute. (Nov.)

This romantic mystery, filled with -country-house atmosphere and cookery, offers an homage to Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. In this, the sixteenth entry in the Faith Fairchild series, New England caterer and part-time sleuth Fairchild receives a summons to cater a weekend at a best-selling mystery writer's island estate. Ten other women, who all attended an exclusive women's college in the 1970s, are invited. Readers soon discover that the invitations are lures to bring a very specific group together. The novel shuttles back and forth between the women's college years and the island. The link all the women share is the one girl who never graduated, one of their group, who fell to her death from a campus tower. It soon becomes apparent that their hostess is putting each one of the 10 on trial for this girl's death. Formulaic but addictive, from a master of the form who has won three Agatha Awards since 1990. Connie Fletcher

This is the 16th entry in a series featuring Faith Fairchild, caterer and amateur sleuth, but it could easily be a stand-alone novel. In fact, it's the first book I've read by the author, but I enjoyed the writing style and the character of Faith Fairchild, so I'll probably go back to the beginning and read the rest of the series.
There is much talk of food throughout the book, due to Faith's occupation as a caterer, and it's a nice bonus that recipes are included.
