Katherine Hall Page has produced yet another fun, intriguing mystery. I purchased 9 of Page's books about 8 years ago and they were packed-away due to a move for about the same amount of time. I was quite excited to find them and began reading the books in this series that I had purchased. I read all 9, expecting some miracle that would show improvement in mystery ence structure skills, but the miracle never occurred.

Caterer and small-town minister’s wife Faith Fairchild might never have accepted the job teaching a course on Cooking for Idiots at Mansfield Academy had it not been for Daryl Martin. An African-American student at the prestigious prep school, Daryl has lately become the target of a series of vicious and anonymous racial attacks - and Faith is determined to put an end to the injustice. But Mansfield, she finds, is a seething cauldron of secrets, academic in-fighting, and unspoken rules that complicate her task.

"The noose was on his pillow, the dark rope starkly outlined against the crisp linen case ..."

Massachusetts caterer and minister's wife Faith Fairchild is back in the twelfth delectable mystery by award-winning author Katherine Hall Page. The incomparable ex-New Yorker's investigative prowess is put to its most stringent test when twisted hatred and blind bigotry become ingredients for murder.

THE BODY IN THE BONFIRE

Taking advantage of the January doldrums in the catering business, Faith goes undercover at Mansfield Academy, a prestigious prep school, after learning about anonymous racist attacks against senior, Daryl Martin. During the school's Project Term, she volunteers to teach Cooking for Idiots, and soon learns more about the darker side of adolescence and the academic in-fighting at Mansfield than she wants to know. Someone, determined to undermine her inquiries, tampers with the ingredients for her cooking demonstrations. Then the incinerated remains of Faith's prime suspect are discovered in the smoldering ashes of the traditional Project Term. It's not mischief but murder!

The headmaster's wife, an expert on Russian art... and men; the history teacher with a cultlike following; the loner, junior Zach Cohen, hacker extraordinaire; and Internet obsessed freshman Danny Miller, the son of Faith's best friend and neighbor, are all connected, but how? Faith frantically struggles to make sense of it, all too aware of the killer's deadly presence tracking her every move. It's a race to save Mansfield and her own life.

  • The Sinners from Mitar
I was really disappointed not to find a recipe for smothered pork at the end of the book. Darn! Or some of the other delectable dishes Faith was teaching the boys to cook. That woman has an enormous amount of energy. And she does everything so well. She solves mysteries, of course, usually or always putting herself into very dangerous situations, she's a wonderful mother, a terrific wife, a good friend, and above all, she's a gourmet chef. I forgot, she's also good looking. She is like a grown-up Nancy Drew. And she's just as much fun to read about. Especially in Ms Page's literate and sparkling style.

I enjoyed this. It was ok but not great. I understand it's the middle of a series and was glad to see it didn't belabor who was who but still it came across clearly enough and didn't seem like it was repeating history a lot. Some of the situations were a little silly as a parent should not be putting themselves repeatedly into dangerous positions. Also, when do the parents ever spend time with their kids? But overall it was not a bad read.

Even though this mystery novel takes on the issue of race relations, it never seems heavy or preachy. I was glad that I missed this one when it came out a few years ago, because I've read all the others in the series, and thought I'd have to wait for a while to get the chance to read another.

Katherine Hall Page has produced yet another fun, intriguing mystery. Great plot, characters and suspense. What's not to like? I love Faith and her family. Nothing seems manipulated or contrived. Just good reading.

This is the best of the series so far....best character and plot development. Love this series-when one ends, you thirst for another...now!

Not worth your time
I purchased 9 of Page's books about 8 years ago and they were packed-away due to a move for about the same amount of time. I was quite excited to find them and began reading the books in this series that I had purchased. I read all 9, expecting some miracle that would show improvement in mystery writing/grammar/sentence structure skills, but the miracle never occurred. I will write my review for each of the books, in order of the copyright dates - they all have received a 1-star rating.
This "mystery" was lacking the clues necessary and/or sufficient for the reader to determine the solution - in fact, the "sleuth" was unable to determine the solution until accosted by the murderer (the murderer confessed to the "sleuth" at the end of the book). In addition, the "red herrings" were not addressed prior the ending of the book.
The grammar and the sentence structure were very poor. The editor or author have no concept with respect to when to use colons, semi-colons, periods, and commas. There were many misplaced prepositional phrases (distorting the meaning of the sentences), dangling participles, over-deferring of prepositions (i.e., ending sentences with prepositions), split infinitives, sentences with no verb, sentences with no subject, incomplete sentences, etc.
If this book had 70% less words and some basic clues, it might have been an acceptable novella. The amount of words dedicated to non-applicable information and to ruminating thoughts in the head of the sleuth detracted from the story line and provided no useful or entertaining reading material. The description of a school grounds, woods, insides of houses, furniture, dorm rooms, redecoration of a room, and even a flyer, coupled with many other extraneous details and inane conversations, were obviously included in order to fill the space and to make the book longer.
