Pix Rowe Miller, friend to caterer and minister's wife Faith Fairchild, is preparing for her son's out-of-town wedding but is hesitant about leaving her ailing, elderly mother, Ursula, unattended so Faith offers to keep an eye on her in Pix's absence. Ursula soon reveals to Faith a secret she has kept for seventy years about the murder of her brother Theo. Someone else from Ursula's past also knows the secret and has been blackmailing her.
Never one to turn down a chance to solve a mystery, Faith agrees to do some investigating on her own to find out who the blackmailer is, and perhaps solve the murder itself. But, it turns out this isn't the only case she needs to solve. When thousands of dollars turn up missing from the discretionary fund that only her minister husband had access to, Faith must clear his name.
Meanwhile, as Pix meets her son's in-laws for the first time, a whole new drama unfolds.
This is the first book I've read by this author and I enjoyed it. I look forward to reading more from this series. It was light reading, not what I would call a suspenseful page-turner, but it was entertaining and there were some surprises at the end.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicted, nor was a positive review required.
