Morrow. May 2014. 240p. ISBN 9780062310798. $24.99; ebk. ISBN 9780062310811. F
Page, an award-winning mystery writer, serves a variety of tasty short morsels that will wet her fans' appetites. Several of the stories feature her series protagonist Faith Fairchild (The Body in the Boudoir; The Body in the Gazebo), but new readers needn't be familiar to enjoy these tales. One of the pieces, "The Would-Be Widower," won an Agatha Award. Featuring everything from ghosts to wives behaving strangely, from spas to an inner city drug den, the fiction is well paced and will leave the reader satisfied, as a good short story should.
VERDICT Series fans and readers who enjoy light short stories will savor this delectable treat. [Library marketing.]
