At home on Sanpere Island, Maine, caterer and
amateur sleuth Faith Fairchild discovers that real estate can be
murder, especially when it’s all in the family, in this twenty-second book in the popular mystery series.
The Fourth of July is one of
the hottest on record and even the breeze off Penobscot Bay can’t seem
to cool things down for Faith Fairchild and the rest of the folks on
Sanpere Island. But the fireworks are just beginning. After the
celebrations are over, Faith discovers a body in the woods near the
Birches, an early twentieth-century “cottage.”
The body is
identified as the Birches’ housekeeper, who seems to have succumbed to a
heart attack. The death is only one of the dramatic events upending the
historic house. A family gathering has been called to decide who will
inherit the much loved, and very valuable, estate that has been in the
Proctor family for generations. With this much money involved, it’s just
a matter of time before trouble arises.
Faith is juggling her own
family problems. Her teenage son, Ben, has started a new job as a
dishwasher at the Laughing Gull Lodge—learning things that could land
him in very hot water. And her daughter Amy is worried about her new
friend, Daisy Proctor. Daisy is terrified—convinced that someone is
trying to eliminate her mother from getting a share of the Birches. To
protect her children, Faith has to find a possible murderer—before he
strikes too close to her own home. Download and start listening now!
