Faith Fairchild is busy at home and at work as Halloween comes creeping into the small town of Aleford, Massachusetts. Yet, when First Parish asks her to cater the church's restoration campaign kickoff at historic Ballou House, she gamely agrees. She's never done a Murder Mystery Game benefit dinner before, and there's the additional draw of four famous local mystery writers to join in the fun. But the evening's merriment is brought to a grisly halt when a beautiful young woman dies moments after finishing every last bite of the dessert Faith has prepared!
Now Faith is in serious trouble. Her phone is ringing off the hook with job cancellations, and Aleford's wagging tongues are suggesting that it was Faith herself who laced the goodie with cyanide, having discovered her husband Tom's perhaps overly pastoral interest in the victim. Then young Ben Fairchild's elementary-school principal reveals that he's been receiving anonymous threatening phone calls. Faith's world feels steeped in poison and the one person she'd normally turn to for comfort and advice seems locked in his own private hell. Tom is barely speaking to her.
Never before has Faith's amateur sleuthing hit so close to home -- and never before has it been more crucial. She has to find out who killed Gwen Lord to save her business, her marriage, and possibly her freedom. But before she does, there's a body in the moonlight -- a body that carries an unmistakable warning for Faith Fairchild....
