The Old Maid's Puzzle

It seems as if nothing is going to liven up Faith Fairchild's deathly dull vacation on Maine's Sanpere Island -- until she buys a beautiful handmade quilt at an estate auction. Lovingly constructed by wealthy, deceased, and detested Matilda Prescott, Faith's purchase turns out to be quite a bargain indeed -- especially when she discovers it to be a map to the old woman's hidden treasure. But instead of pointing the transplanted New York caterer-turned-minister's wife toward the fabled Prescott gold, Matilda's artfully crafted clues lead Faith to a kelp-covered corpse floating in a nearby tidal pool. Once again, the resourceful amateur sleuth has become entangled in a dangerous puzzle, ensnared in twisted, lethal threads of familial greed and cold-blooded homicide. And Faith won't be satisfied until she has the whole murderous matter sewn up.

This was an OK book. The plot wasn’t great. Too many things going on at the same time. The characters were good, but some of their stories weren’t ended. The editing was poor. Misspelled words, poor punctuation, and disjointed sentences.
I bought the ebook and at the end it went from Deputy Earl arriving at Faith’s house and the next sentence Faith and Tom were on the Ferris wheel. I have no idea what happened to the “bad guys”.
I, like other reviewers, am tired of Faith pawning off Ben to anyone who will look after him and Faith’s snooty opinion of food and any place other than NYC.
Ms. Page’s writing is wonderful and a joy to read.
Don’t know if I will continue with this series.

Once again for this series, we get a moderately interesting book, but the mystery didn't appear until the second half (minus the murder in the first chapter) and even then the heroine doesn't realize there's a mystery going on. The author writes beautiful prose -- absolutely beautiful!!! We meet so many interesting people, see so many sights. But there is ZERO conflict, even after bodies begin to turn up. Oh look, another dead person. Aren't the leaves lovely this time of year, fa la!

There is no ticking clock. No Goals-Motivation-Conflict to propel the plot. Our Heroines don't even realize there's a serial killer after them until practically the final chapter. The author produces (again, only this time moreso) a Way Out of Certain Doom that comes from nowhere, with no setup. I was angry when it happened.

Such a shame that the author writes so beautifully but can't plot. Why didn't her editor point this out to her to have it corrected?

I would have given this 5 stars as it is a good book and held my interest. But, as with the others in this series that I've read, the explanation is too complicated and leaves one feeling like "why would that person do that with so little motive". And there always has to be more than one killer in her books. I also wish that Faith was a little less of a snob always thinking that people have to wear Armani like that matters at all to anybody with any real sense. But, in the present situation of anything written about a cookie shop or a pie shop, etc., with some dumb baker solving crimes in some little town getting published all over the place, this series is pretty good. Not as good as some and not nearly as bad as a lot of others.

Another Katherine Hall Page and Faith Fairchild mystery and it is a good one. While on a vacation Faith finds a body, and then another etc. and it seems like they should be related but they can't seem to put it together. Meanwhile a quilt offers the possibility of finding some long lost gold if they dan only figure it out. A very good read and I enjoyed it.

This is part of a series of books by this author and I hope it doesn't become one of those series that each subsequent book gets worse. This one was a ho-hum for sure. The main character Faith is the wife of a minister in a small Massachusetts town. She has a penchant for finding dead bodies much in the same tradition of Mary Daheim. This time she is in Maine for the summer while her husband is off to a conference. The whole thing was so unimaginative, the book where they were in Paris was far better. I didn't pay a lot for it, good thing, I'll see how the next book is before I quit reading the series

The plot line was compelling enough to make it a quick read, but I find the main character to be a bit one-dimensional and some of the dialogue (particularly coming from the protagonist) didn't seem realistic to me.

Delightful series continues. Irresistible setting, I'd love to visit there. The story is interesting, and the ending is incredible, in the sense that it's not believable,, it doesn't make any sense. But hey, I'm going to keep reading, the next one is Bouillon, then Vestibule, Cast, Basement, on and on, let's hope it never ends.
I enjoy novels that take me on vacation to places I've never been. I love the characters in Page's series. I quilt, when I have time. So The Body in the Kelp was a real treat. An enjoyable book to curl up with on a blustery winter day.
