    Excellent read as always. CONGRATS to Katherine Hall Page on her 25th anniversary of writing and her 25th book. Was so nice to find a new book by her. Loved all the stories as she and her husband had small children and could really relate to the way their life was. Now the kids are grown and It has changed so much for them. New neighbors move in and lots of problems are starting with them. This book has a lot of mystery, murder, drug dealings and surprises and funny things too, when someone come

New neighbors move in and lots of problems are starting with them. This book has a lot of mystery, murder, drug dealings and surprises and funny things too, when someone comes in town and tries to control her friends-- son's wedding plans. All in all the really evil people are found out regarding the drugs and murder and the police are notified in the nick of time. Thanks for the recipes too. Look forward to more books by KHP. (-:

    I really love this series. This is the 25th book in the series and I've read all of them. I've gotten attached to the characters. Faith Fairchild is the main character, along with her husband Tom. They have two kids who have "grown up" as the series has progressed and are now college and high-school age. Faith's best friend and neighbor is Pix Miller who has two or three kids also, and

    This is another great entry to the series and deals with a timely subject matter. It was a nice quick read and as usual there are recipes in the back of the book. I might have to try making a blueberry buckle someday!

    It was the first book I read in this series and I'm happy I requested it because I discovered a great series.

    Even if there are a lot of books in this series I had no problems in understanding the plot and the characters.

    I loved Faith, she likable and relatable, a strong and clever woman. The other characters other well developed and likable.

    The plot was engaging, entertaining, and it kept me hooked till the last page.

    The mystery was great, well developed and it kept me guessing till the end.

    What it's all about...

    If you are a reader of any Katherine Hall Page book you know that there is a lot of yummy food as well as a few recipes within its pages. The other great thing is that although she has written tons of books you can easily read any of her books out of order. I have not read one in a while and it was easy to step right into her latest one. In this book there are a few murders that are quite puzzling. But there is also an undercurrent

    If you are a reader of any Katherine Hall Page book you know that there is a lot of yummy food as well as a few recipes within its pages. The other great thing is that although she has written tons of books you can easily read any of her books out of order. I have not read one in a while and it was easy to step right into her latest one. In this book there are a few murders that are quite puzzling. But there is also an undercurrent of dangerous activity in this book that seems to focus on rampant drug use in a small beach town.

    My thoughts after reading this book...

    Faith and Sophie and their families are the backbone of this book. Faith is sort of like Jessica Fletcher...she always seems to either find a dead body or be around when one is discovered. And that’s the case here. Faith is a chef and is always working on amazing comestibles. Mackerel spread, amazing sandwiches, yummy salads, these are her specialties. There is a recipe for coleslaw as well as one for lobster rolls in the back of this book.

    What I loved best...

    This was a great cozy mystery...I loved Faith and Sophie and their families. I loved the surroundings. This book was a lovely breezy reading experience.

    What potential readers might want to know...

    Readers who love cozy mysteries and food should really enjoy this book.

    I received this book from the publisher through Edelweiss. It was my choice to read and review it.

    I'm the first to admit I haven't read all twenty-five Faith Fairchild mysteries. But, twenty-five books in any series is cause for celebration. Katherine Hall Page manages to throw in a celebration as well as an issue-oriented, hit-close-to-home traditional mystery with The Body in the Wake.

    I'm the first to admit I haven't read all twenty-five Faith Fairchild mysteries. But, twenty-five books in any series is cause for celebration. Katherine Hall Page manages to throw in a celebration as well as an issue-oriented, hit-close-to-home traditional mystery with The Body in the Wake.

    Wife, mother, caterer, friend. Faith Fairchild fits all of those roles in the latest book in the series. However, it's been quite a long time since she had so much time to herself. She and her husband, Tom, are spending the summer on their beloved Sanpere Island in Maine. But, he's writing a book in an office on one side of the island, and she's alone, with time for friends, on the other. Their son, Ben, is working on a college summer research project. Their daughter, Amy, is on the island, but working long hours in the kitchen of a new conference center. Faith has time to listen to her friend, Sophie, worry about the lack of a baby. And, her best friend, Pix Miller, is worrying over her daughter's upcoming wedding. She has a lot to worry about when Samantha's future mother-in-law shows up, out of the blue, with over-the-top plans for a wedding that doesn't fit Samantha and Zach's lifestyle.

    It's while spending time with Sophie that Faith discovers the first body of the summer at her favorite swimming pond. They try to save the man, and it's while doing CPR that Sophie recognizes him as a biker she saw with some others in town one day. She remembers his tattoo. When Faith and Tom find a second body, this time in the water off an island, the victim has the same tattoo. Both men are from Lowell, Massachusetts, a link in the drug chain that extends from Colombia to Maine, and into Canada. But, drugs and the opioid crisis strike even closer to home for the Fairchilds and their friends. It's not just bikers who are involved.

    The Body in the Wake is a well-written traditional mystery, the twenty-fifth in a series that celebrates friends and family with a concluding wedding. However, the author emphasizes the opioid crisis, addiction, and the problem it has become for every community. While it doesn't take long to guess who the addict is in Faith Fairchild's circle, it's a dramatic scene when the moment of discovery occurs. And, the discussion of addiction is worth reading by itself.

    Katherine Hall Page's The Body in the Wake is a satisfying mystery, and a satisfying celebration for readers who appreciate longevity with continued high standards of writing.

    Faith and her husband Tom and daughter Amy are summering on Sanpere Island. Faith is busy spending time with her friends: Sophie, newly married, and Pix, whose daughter will soon be married. But several things mar this idyllic time, not the least of which is a dead body. Not known to the island’s inhabitants, the dead man is connected to another dead body through matching tattoos.

    Faith and her husband Tom and daughter Amy are summering on Sanpere Island. Faith is busy spending time with her friends: Sophie, newly married, and Pix, whose daughter will soon be married. But several things mar this idyllic time, not the least of which is a dead body. Not known to the island’s inhabitants, the dead man is connected to another dead body through matching tattoos. Much of the enjoyment of the series comes from the interaction of the characters as they deal with the problems of day to day life, which soon become complicated by the unexplained deaths. Well written with a mystery to solve that almost takes a back seat to the characters lives, this book will stand alone, although to really understand the characters, readers should enjoy the series from the beginning.

    This latest Faith Fairchild Mystery is another example of the author of a long established series feeling the need to keep pumping 'em out long after they have run out of ideas.

    It is summer on Sanpere Island, Maine, and Faith and Pix are pretty much on their own, with their spouses elsewhere meeting work obligations. Pix's daughter, Samantha, is getting married, and her mother-in-law to be shows up wanting to change all the wedding plans to something more elaborate.

    This latest Faith Fairchild Mystery is another example of the author of a long established series feeling the need to keep pumping 'em out long after they have run out of ideas.

    It is summer on Sanpere Island, Maine, and Faith and Pix are pretty much on their own, with their spouses elsewhere meeting work obligations. Pix's daughter, Samantha, is getting married, and her mother-in-law to be shows up wanting to change all the wedding plans to something more elaborate.

    Also on the island is Sophie Maxwell, also temporarily on her own. Sophie's mother, Babs is called in to keep the overbearing mother of the groom busy so that she cannot interfere. Babs signs them up for a writer's course at an island resort.

    Coincidences abound, and young Amy, Faith's daughter is working in the kitchen of the same resort. When the chef nearly OD's, Faith moves in to take over feeding the guests and gets to work side by side in a professional capacity with her daughter. Young Amy is growing up fast and determined to follow in her mother's footsteps.

    The chef isn't the only one to fall under the effects of drugs. The maid of honour doesn't show up for the shower she is supposed to be hosting. Faith witnesses an unusual scene in the parking lot of the resort and finds a syringe tossed on the ground after a truck speeds off.

    Pix has her own problems. A new neighbour clearcuts his land, and after Sam protests, he is accused of glueing the power saw to the floor of the shed and later burning the shed down. His work glove is found on the scene.

    In spite of all the various problems going on around the island, this book is very slow moving and the resolutions to the problems just fizzle.

    Reading this book is like dropping in on old acquaintances. Not much happens but it is nice to be kept up to date. I do not think that anyone who has not read the previous books would find it very interesting.

  • Louise

    I am a fan of this writer. Fun easy read. Keep your attention. Interesting characters. Food recipes. But not this one. It was a bit rambling and difficult to keep track of who what and where. Very disappointed.

  • Mary  (Biblophile)

    Disappointed in this one. I've always like this series, but this one was boring and uninspiring. Not much of a mystery and too much ramblings about relationships. The plot, such as there was, seemed scattered.

  • Kathy

    Absolute nonsense. Read a sample of this drivel before you believe the 5-star reviews.
