I love Faith Fairchild, and I have not missed any of her books so far. But I must admit that this was one of my least favorite books in the series. Maybe I was imagining it, but it seemed like there were more than a few political and environmental "digs" sprinkled throughout the story line. ("Global warming is killing the ski industry.", "I hate to think what the state of the world will be [when my kids are old enough to enlist].") I don't read cozy mysteries to be preached at, even if they ARE about a preacher's wife. I'll go on to read the next one, but if Katherine Hall Page continues in this vein, she may just lose this reader ... for good!
